    Most cancer research dollars have been wasted asking the wrong questions, looking in the wrong places, and using the same failed approaches while expecting different results. Conventional cancer treatments damage health, cause new cancers, lower the quality of life, and decrease the chances of survival. In fact, most people who die from cancer are not dying from cancer but from their treatments!

    Raymond Francis is the scientist people turn to when diets don’t work. His groundbreaking approach treats excess weight for what it really is—a disease caused by malfunctioning cells. As Francis explains, many of the foods we eat every day, especially the “health” and “diet” ones we dutifully buy to lose weight, have the opposite effect. Full of hidden toxins and lacking nutrients, they actually poison your cells and alter your weight-control genes, causing your body to put on the pounds.
