Earlier last week, U2's The Edge was invited to share his thoughts on preventive medicine on a panel called "Food as Medicine" at the Milken Global Conference in Beverley Hills, California. Along with Dr. William Li, the co-founder of the Angiogenesis Foundation and author of "Eat to Beat Disease", both men talked about healing people with cancer using the Angiogenesis diet of starving the disease's blood supply by eating certain plant-based foods.
Over a decade ago, The Edge's daughter was a Leukemia cancer survivor, and since 2007 he has been on the Angiogenesis Foundation's board of directors.
The Edge was also interviewed by CNBC's Brian Sullivan about the importance of how a balance of food can help in fighting disease (as well as the future of streaming music). Watch the video below:
