Episode Summary

Many people who receive cancer as a diagnosis might feel as if their world would start tearing apart at the seams, and we can’t blame them—cancer claims many lives. But here’s the thing: we can actually snatch the reigns away from cancer and take charge of our own health. Cancer doesn’t have to be a death sentence.

In this episode of This Podcast Burns Fat, we’re talking to physician, nutritionist, and cancer victor Dr. Robert Zembroski to shed some light about his story revolving around cancer, and what we can do as individuals to prevent it, and what we can do if we receive such a diagnosis.
