Dr. Seyfried has been honoured with Lifetime Achievement Award from the Academy of Comprehensive Integrative Medicine on 24th September 2016.
Dr. Seyfried is a professor of Biology at Boston College, and received his Ph.D. in Genetics and Biochemistry from University of Illinois.
He published a groundbreaking treatise entitled, Cancer as a Metabolic Disease: On the Origin, Management, and Prevention of Cancer (Wiley, 1st ed., 2012).
The treatise provides extensive information showing that cancer can be best defined as a mitochondrial metabolic disease rather than as a genetic disease. This new concept has implications for the development of new non-toxic cancer therapies including the ketogenic diet.
