I came across this neat little report on the ketogenic diet in cancer about a year ago, but it has just cropped up again so I thought I would put it on my blog (as well as a couple of other videos below) It’s a little over-simplified, and might give the impression that eating a ketogenic diet is a guaranteed cure for cancer, which it’s not. That said it is one of the most promising dietary approaches for cancer, and with almost no side effects who wouldn’t give it a go?
There are currently several research groups pursuing the study of ketogenic diet and cancer (e.g. Seyfried, D’Agostino, Sinatra, Fine, Fienman), theoretically and with significant success in animal models, but as yet no trials in humans. One of the most promising aspects of their work is that ketosis appears to significantly enhance the effectiveness of some other cancer therapies, such as hyperbaric oxygen or 2-deoxyglucose.
I plan to do a public talk on the current research in his area sometime later this year. Sign up in the sidebar under my public talks notification to receive email alerts about my talks!
For those of us currently cancer-free and wanting to stay that way a low-carb lifestyle, occasional ketogenic dieting and/or fasting could help reduce our chances of developing this metabolic disease. View more here…
