In this video, Dr. Berg talks about Angiogenesis. It is the formation of the new blood vessels that feed tumors. Tumors need a lot of sugar, 10 to 20x sugar as normal cells where they get from the blood flow. Tumors also live in Glutamine an amino acid. Certain types of chemotherapy as an anti-angiogenesis factor by stopping the blood flow or blood vessel forming. He also talks about how cancer could not live in ketones and the importance of ketogenic diet and intermittent fasting.

Anti-Angiogenic Foods: (Cruciferous Foods)
• Kale
• Broccoli
• Arugula
• Brussel Sprouts
• Cabbage
• Bokchoy

So I want to touch on this topic angiogenesis. You may have heard it before and you may heard it on the news. But it is basically the formation of the blood vessel that feed tumors. Tumors need a lot of sugar, 10 to 20x sugar as normal cells so they need the blood flow to get that sugar. They also live on glutamine which is an amino acid. Certain types of chemotherapy work as an anti-angiogenesis factor by stopping the blood flow or blood vessel forming and that’s how they work. We know that ketogenic diet is very important in starving of cancer because cancer lives on sugar and cancer cannot live on ketones. We know that intermittent fasting is important because if you don’t consume any food for any period of time, you are going to cut down glutamine which is an amino acid. So right there those two actions are very very important. But there are certain foods that are Anti-Angiogenic and that is something you need to focus on and that is part of the healthy keto that I have been pushing for a long time. So what are these foods that are anti-angiogenic which basically starve off the tumor and stop it from eating or basically stopping the blood vessel forming then you starve the tumor off that way. Basically it’s all cruciferous foods. Kale, Broccoli, Arugula, Brussel Sprouts, Cabbage, Bokchoy, it’s all those foods very very important. It doesn’t take much of these foods to consume to create a big effect. For example, one cup of kale is equivalent to the same phytonutrient which are in like 20 cups of regular salad or vegetables. If you consume of cruciferous vegetables, you don’t nearly need the amounts that you would need with the regular vegetables. Broccoli sprouts for example, one teaspoon is equivalent to 2 pounds of adult broccoli. So if you start putting sprouts in your salad, a little bit of kale and use as a base in arugula, you are good. You wanna understand this from the view point of prevention and you want to understand this from the viewpoint if you have cancer, you better be consuming cruciferous and also if you get polyps or women get fibroids, cruciferous vegetables are really key. In addition to healthy Keto and intermittent fasting.
