This article correctly states that William Li promotes angiogenesis as a potential approach for healing wounds. But it incorrectly implies that he believes angiogenesis is a tool against cancer. In fact, he promotes ANTI-angiogenesis therapy for cancer. He may well be a woomeister — I’m not debating that — but in this case his approach is in line with current medical thinking.

@BillCollector If you have a citation to confirm that, you should add it to the page. Bongolian (talk) 05:32, 27 April 2019 (UTC)

Correction: Li Angiogenesis as Cancer Treatment (with Citations)[edit]

As stated in a previous talk post, Li - proponent of angiogenesis - promotes anti-angiogenesis in his own book and through his foundation literature (linked on the entry), The Angiogenesis Foundation (Treatments and explicit reference to Li on site).

From Li's 2019 book "Eat to Beat Disease" (Chapter 1: Angiogenesis): "Helping the body prevent unwanted angiogenesis can have the powerful effect of suppressing cancer. The goal is to boost your angiogenesis defenses... which means cancer cells do not have the advantage of being fed so they can't grow." — Unsigned, by: 170.55.73.196 / talk / contribs
