Its a complete paradigm shift to a wellness/holistic mentality that would need to happen. Its part of our problem with every disease process. Does vitamin C cure this...does vitamin D cure that....Looking to cure a particular disease, especially cancer is futile. The question is what is our plan for optimal health? What do we require as humans to be healthy and thrive? These are the questions that need pursued.

Not sure how I'd "advance" it, but I'd certainly love to see more medical professionals learn about the work of Otto Warburg, and the issue of some cancers thriving in acidic environments and feeding off glucose like there's no tomorrow. (That's why we see cachexia/body wasting in cancer patients -- the cancer cells suck up all the glucose, leaving the rest of the body to starve. Some [but not all] cancers respond extremely well to ketogenic diets. Cancer cells do not adapt well to fatty acids and ketones. So when we starve them of the fuel they want the most and use most effectively (glucose), we force them to use ones they don't use well, and they starve, while the rest of the body can thrive.
I don't remember where I saw it, but I read an interview with Gary Taubes a while back where he said a lot of the top guys he's spoken with at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center are on low-carb diets -- not because they need to lose weight, but because they want to stave off cancer.
I'd also like to see more attention given to the Gerson protocol. Wacky and difficult, yes, but it seems to work. (And it's most definitely not ketogenic, but it's LOADED with raw veggies and fruit, live enzymes, all organic, etc. Also includes REST, stress reduction, and detoxification. Remove the toxic burden from the body and load it up with good stuff.)
