The ketogenic diet has became quite popular, and for a very good reason – it has a good potential to treat cancer.
But, this high-fat low-carb diet is not a new invention, as it was developed back in 1920s in the John Hopkins Hospital for children suffering from epilepsy. It’s been discovered that those children who do not respond to the anti-seizure medicaments, gave positive responds to the ketogenic diet.
The name of the diet comes from the word “ketones”. Ketones are alternate source of energy supplied to the brain when the body reaches a state of “ketosis”. Ketosis can be reached by fasting, or by eating a diet high in fats with very few carbohydrates, limiting insulin production. Coconut oil is considered to be the best ingredient in a ketogenic diet, as it leads to more rapid ketosis.
According to a research, ketogenc diet starves cancer cells. Even the medical community supports this thesis, as they try to create drugs that will mimic the effects of the ketogenic diet. The reason why they try to develop the drug is because people can’t easily give up on sugar and processed carbs.
But, with a strong will, everyone can practice this diet. Many people managed to beat cancer, reverse Alzheimer’s disease, stop seizures, beat diabetes, lose weight, and much more thanks to this diet.
On the video below is Joe Mancaruso, a man who managed to beat stage-4 lung cancer with a ketogenic diet, exercise, and positive living. After being offered chemotherapy and given only 6 months to live, he decided that he wanted to spend his last 6 months eating healthy and improve his lifestyle. He was already a cancer survivor once in 1985, when he beat testicular cancer. Today, Joe is cancer free for the second time.
We must act fast, as we’re losing the war against cancer. At the beginning of the last century, one in twenty would get cancer. In the 1940s it was one in sixteen people. In the 1970s it was one person out of ten. Today one person out of three gets cancer in the course of their life.
On the other hand, the cancer industry gets richer and it iis the most profitable business in the U.S. $6 billion of tax-payer funds are cycled through various federal agencies for cancer research, such as the National Cancer Institute (NCI). The NCI states that the medical costs of cancer care are $125 billion, with a projected 39 percent increase to $173 billion by 2020.
