This review focuses on the evolving understanding that we have of tumor cell metabolism, particularly glycolytic and oxidative metabolism, and traces back its evolution through time. This understanding has developed since the pioneering work of Otto Warburg, but the understanding of tumor cell metabolism continues to be hampered by misinterpretation of his work. This has contributed to the use of the new concepts of metabolic switch and metabolic reprogramming, that are out of step with reality. The Warburg effect is often considered to be a hallmark of cancer, but is it really? More generally, is there a metabolic signature of cancer? We draw the conclusion that the signature of cancer cannot be reduced to a single factor, but is expressed at the tissue level in terms of the capacity of cells to dynamically explore a vast metabolic landscape in the context of significant environmental heterogeneities.
