methylmalonic acid (MMA), metabolic byproduct boosts cancer

Study finds cancer-boosting culprit that multiplies with age

As our bodies convert food into energy, they produce debris that accumulates as we age. New research shows that one of these metabolic throwaways plays a potentially deadly role in the development of cancer.

Observations of metastasising cells revealed something intriguing—a high level of something called methylmalonic acid (MMA), a metabolic byproduct that appears to accumulate as we get older.

MMA accumulation is linked to high-protein diets, so it is possible that a low-protein diet might help cancer patients respond better.
