Ketogenic diet for cancer is gaining some credibility such that clinical trials are investigating.

Low carb/High fat diets are great for you..especially in the case of inflammatory disorders like cancer and metabolic syndrome.

Get off the government brainwash and investigate for yourself.

 PET scans look for glucose metabolism when they look for cancer in your body!  What does that tell you???  They spot the cancer thriving on the glucose.  Quit feeding the cancer!  Starve it out with the ketogenic diet!  Google it!

The ketogenic diet leads to a metabolic state known as “nutritional ketosis”. Where fats are converted to ketones bodies. When glucose is in short supply, most normal cells can switch to using ketones and fats as fuel. Cancer cells cannot use ketone bodies (fat metabolism) as energy source, since they are not as metabolically flexible as normal cells. 

Dr. Seyfried and Dr. D'Agostino have done alot of research in metabolic cancer treatment, and it's well worth a look for cancer patients.

I completely agree.  The ketogenic diet is also PRIMO in the treatment of metabolic syndrome.  It can actually reverse the insulin resistance in cells, lower A1C and triglycerides and reduce your risk for heart disease...all through eating FATS!  This is completely opposite of the "government approved" low fat, high carb diet.  New studies are coming out against the government dietary recommendations due to the staggering statistics related to the obesity epidemic.

Additionally, the use of statins is known to cause memory problems and there are some hypotheses regarding the low fat diet's relationship to increased incidence of Alzheimers, probably through the use of statins.  The brain LOVES Ketones via fat metabolism for energy!
