Could the high-fat ketogenic diet be a potential cancer treatment?
The concept of a ketogenic diet that's high in fat and low in carbohydrates is nothing new...

In fact, the ketogenic was discovered way back in 1920 at the John Hopkins School for the children with epilepsy. Scientists found that the children who weren't responding well to anti-seizure drugs became free of seizures after going on the ketogenic diet.

Since then, the ketogenic diet has become an interesting topic of research. It's even being considered as a potential cancer treatment. Keep reading to find out more about the ketogenic diet as a potential cancer treatment.

What is meant by the term “ketogenic diet”?

The ketogenic diet is named after ketones, which are considered an alternative energy source for your brain when there’s ketosis – a normal metabolic process that occurs either by fasting from all foods or by eating a high-fat diet that’s low in carbohydrates, resulting in reduced insulin production.
 
One ideal type of healthy fat to include in the ketogenic diet is organic, extra virgin coconut oil, as it can develop ketosis more rapidly.
 
So far, researchers have determined that the ketogenic diet can cause cancer cells to starve. This discovery has gained a lot of popularity in medicine. Researchers even began studying it to potentially develop drugs that work in the same ways at the ketogenic diet.

The healing secret big pharma doesn’t want you to know!

 

“I may be politically incorrect and stepping on the toes of big pharma, but, my test results for my aggressive prostate cancer in consistently getting better and better. I have gone from surgery, chemo and radiation suggestions to my doctors suggestion of wait-and-see, as improvement has been quite dramatic. I have only been on my daily regimen for 9 months.” ~ John Duffy

The reason that researchers want to develop drugs to replace this diet is simply the diet’s restrictive nature and problems in breaking the processed carbohydrate and sugar addition in people.
 

The popular story of one man gives promise to the ketogenic diet as a potential cancer treatment…

Joe Mancaruso is living proof that the ketogenic diet can help fight off cancer. He fought stage foru lung cancer by simply using this diet along with exercise and positive living. His doctors told him that he had six months to live and recommended chemotherapy.
 
However, because Joe was also a previous survivor of testicular cancer in 1985, he refused the chemotherapy to live his life better for the next six months and instead put himself on a diet abundant in fat.
 
Today, Joe is free of cancer and living a healthy, happy life.
