♦ Description : “And if fasting was a simple and effective method to treat many diseases? A provocative, even scandalous, question for some supporters of the medical dogma, and yet … This is the story that this successful, remarkably researched and accessible book, the fruit of a multi-year investigation, delivers. In a society where consumerist logic is pushed to the point of absurdity, fasting poses a saving paradox: “Can less be more?”
And if fasting was a simple and effective method to treat many diseases? A provocative and even scandalous question for some supporters of medical dogma. However, since Dr. Henry Tanner who fasted for forty days in 1880 in New York under the supervision of his colleagues, to the American biologist Valter Longo who is fasting today cancer mice with amazing results, scientific studies on fasting do not fail.
It is this story that Thierry de Lestrade restores in this remarkably documented book, fruit of a long investigation. Is fasting dangerous? What are the mechanisms of fasting? Can we measure the effects? What is the action of fasting on cancer cells? To all these questions, and many others, the researchers gave answers, often surprising. While in Western countries modern medicine fails to halt the decline in life expectancy in good health, the practice of fasting, so old, appears as a new therapy.”
