Targeting Angiogenesis to Lose Weight

Targeting Angiogenesis to Lose Weight.

Michael Greger, M.D. FACLM, | By | NUTRITIONFACTS.ORG is a science-based nonprofit organization founded by Michael Greger, M.D. FACLM,
Expanding body fat releases blood supply-generating factors that may end up hooking up tumors, too. Obesity increases the risk of more than a dozen different cancers, increasing the overall risk of getting and then dying from cancer by about 20 percent. All those angiogenic factors released from our increasing body fat may spill out into our bloodstream, resulting in higher blood levels among overweight individuals, which can then drop back down when we lose weight. So, maybe we could get the best of both worlds if we treated obesity like a tumor, using anti-angiogenic strategies to prevent the expansion of our fat mass in the first place.

This video was based on research I did for How Not to Diet that unfortunately had to be cut due to space constraints. So glad to finally see it come to life! For those who missed the book, check out Trailer for How Not to Diet: Dr. Greger’s Guide to Weight Loss.

For more on how to live your longest, healthiest life, preorder to Dr. Greger’s new book How Not to Age. (As always, all proceeds I receive from all of my books are donated to charity.)
