Yeah I've read where for cancer treatments they are trying to mimic apoptosis (cell suicide-death) in cancer cells while only having autophagy (cell recycling repair) with healthy cells....as you don't want cancer cells rebuilding again.

There's also some study on mice in regards to the use of fasting and being able to take more cancer treatment due to an increase of cellular autophagy/repair.
