Jean-Jacques Trochon is an airline pilot with Air France. A French national, he spent his early childhood in Tahiti before finishing his schooling in France and the USA.
In 2003, Jean-Jacques was diagnosed with aggressive kidney cancer and subsequently underwent the removal of his left kidney. Working hard at his recovery, he returned to the cockpit after just 4.5 months. Nine years later saw the emergence of multiple metastases in both lungs, requiring three major surgeries (in 2012 and 2014). Despite being given a slim chance of survival, Jean-Jacques again returned to work in 2016 and now captains the world's largest commercial aircraft, the Airbus 380.
The secret to his good health? In addition to his positive mental attitude, he has spent the past 14 years researching cancer treatments and now incorporates natural anti-angiogenesis, ketogenesis, fasting and the use of phycocyanin, found in spirulina, into his daily regime.
