Binge eating is a self-distant, unplanned, and impulsive act, which is able to bypass the conscious intention. Overeating is an archaic-pragmatic survival mechanism of crises and the consequent famine. Neither modern sciences nor the past 70 years of consumer experiences have been able to treat this crises eating. The roots of unconscious eating are sought in evolution, in the history of civilization and in early childhood. In many cases unhealthy nutrition and overeating are not caused by lack of sufficient knowledge but by other (not conscious) emotional or environmental impacts. Therefore, although information is important, it does not mean sufficient intervention, psychotherapy of deeper structures may be needed.

Immunotherapy is the fifth pillar of anti-cancer therapy. Immune checkpoint inhibitors are the most successful immunotherapy treatments. Their mechanism of action is based on the inhibition of negative immune regulation. Identification and management of immuno-related side effects require complex thinking and skill. Combining immune checkpoint therapies with each other and with other modalities can further improve the results so far, and the future will be a combination therapy.
