In this episode Morley speaks with Lawrence Rosenberg of The Alpha Human Podcast on iron overload and its connection to cancer. They discuss the history and misconceptions surrounding iron and its perceived deficiency in human health leading to a societal fixation on iron supplementation.

Morley digs into this narrative, highlighting the abundance of iron in the environment and the human body’s natural ability to regulate iron through copper. He talks about how many health issues, including cancer, are due to a lack of bioavailable copper and an excess of unregulated iron.

He describes how the body’s metabolism, particularly in cancer cells, shifts from using oxygen (oxidative phosphorylation) to fermenting sugar (glycolysis) due to a copper deficiency. This shift, known as the Warburg Effect, indicates a lack of bioavailable copper necessary for iron regulation and oxygen metabolism.

The conversation also touches on the role of liver impairment and non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, which Morley explains as an imbalance of copper, retinol, and iron. He emphasizes the importance of retinol (animal-based vitamin A) in maintaining copper balance and its critical role in overall health.

Morley continues to challenge the conventional wisdom on supplements like vitamin D and ascorbic acid, arguing that they can impede the body’s natural mineral balance.
