In this TED talk, Dr. William Li, President and Medical Director of The Angiogenesis Foundation discusses how cancer starts to develop in the body without a blood supply. As blood vessel growth begins to provide nutrients needed by the cancer cells, the cells begin to grow and this growth can rapidly get out of control.
Dr. Li suggests that if the blood vessel growth can be controlled, it might be possible to restrict the growth of cancer tumors. He also discusses how eating different foods affects the growth of cancer tumors.
This intriguing idea is called angiogenesis and it has potential to treat a wide range of other conditions and illnesses besides cancer. Visit The Angiogenesis Foundation website for more information.
