    1. Inhibition of Glucose uptake in cancer cells. Malignant cells are known to have an enormous glucose uptake. That’s why I tell everybody that has cancer to immediately (a) get on a ketogenic diet, and (b) take High Dose Vitamin C. Note: Cancer cells consume glucose 200 times faster than ordinary cells. If you study cancer you know of the Warburg Effect. This is the aerobic glycolysis effect and it can be seen on PET scans. It’s pretty obvious. Fenbendazole limits cancer cell fueling with sugar by limiting this glucose uptake, decreasing the amount of what are called “glute transporters” (canals that take the glucose into cancer cells from the blood). An enzyme called hexokinase 2 is inhibited as well. This is very important. It helps those tumors to not divide rapidly and prevent sugar from getting in there.

      Sugar (glucose) is the primary fuel for cancer. Fenbendazole limits glucose uptake in cancer cells, limiting growth.

      Also a reason for adopting a ketogenic diet with high dose vitamin c.

    1. Insulin sends a message to our cells that nutrients are available, meaning it’s time to grow and proliferate. When the levels of the hormones drop, it’s a signal to cells that its time to enter a life-extending mode of conservation. Such a system makes evolutionary sense.

      Very good explanation!

    1. Exercise is often positioned as something that always lowers blood glucose; however, high-intensity exercise, such as sprinting or weight lifting, can sometimes raise blood glucose. This stems from the adrenaline response, which tells the body to release stored glucose. Often, I find this happens when I’m exercising in the morning on an empty stomach. But this is not a reason to avoid high intensity exercise – studies show it can improve blood glucose for one to three days post-exercise! Note that in some cases high-intensity exercise can also drop blood glucose very rapidly (2-3 mg/dl per minute), especially if you have insulin on board in your pump. The best way to see how individual exercise sessions affect your blood glucose is to test prior and after activity. “The Impact of brief, high-intensity exercise on blood glucose levels” (Diabetes Metab Syndr Obes 2013)
