Your body's recycling program by Michael Cummins, Sun 24 Dec '17

Your body's recycling program

Think of it as our body’s innate recycling program,” says Colin Champ, M.D., a board-certified radiation oncologist, assistant professor at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center, and author of Misguided Medicine. “Autophagy makes us more efficient machines to get rid of faulty parts, stop cancerous growths, and stop metabolic dysfunction like obesity and diabetes.”

"First of all, autophagy is a response to stress, so you’re actually going to want to put your body through stress in order to drum up a little extra auto-cannibalism."
 
"'Ketosis is like an autophagy hack,' Champ says. “You get a lot of the same metabolic changes and benefits of fasting without actually fasting."
