Default Keto and Cancer

Over and over I am stumbling upon research, articles, experiences and more connecting ketogenic diets and cancer treatment and possibly prevention.

Perhaps there could be a new section added covering CANCER on this forum.

Until then...

This book struck me as interesting and Im considering buying it. Has anyone read it?

Keto for Cancer: Ketogenic Metabolic Therapy as a Targeted Nutritional Strategy

There are cancer sections / chapters in a few recent books I've read (am reading), to name a couple...

Why We Sleep: Unlocking the Power of Sleep and Dreams, Dr. Matthew P. Walker (2017) *

The Ketogenic Bible: The Authoritative Guide to Ketosis, Jacob Wilson, Ryan Lowery (2017)

The Longevity Diet, Valter Longo (2016)

* still reading - making it last

I own the book and I have read the book. I bought it after my granddaughter was diagnosed with Ewing Sarcoma. Miriam Kalamian has several talks on dietdoctor.com. I was not able to influence my son and daughter-in-law in matters of diet but I did send them the book just in case. It is well worth reading.

Thanks Jean,there seem to be about 4 books on line that cover this topic. Afraid to buy just one incase I miss the vital action for prevention.

I was surprised to learn that adequate vit D3 helps with colon cancer and skin cancer. which actually makes sense when the original tissues for both come from the same embryonic tissue layer.

Check out Amazon's Top Customer Review by someone who goes by JEY

I think Miriam's book is the now the best, especially for someone in treatment, and who doesn’t have a biochemistry PhD to read it. Ellen Davis's is also good, used that for years, but Miriam adds advice on how to work with an oncology team.

If you want a general overview of the Metabolic Theory of Cancer, but still a whole book, highly recommend Tripping Over the Truth. https://www.chelseagreen.com/produc...over-the-truth/

If anyone wants my list of resources on this topic, PM me an email. It is now a seven page document, full of links of course geared to cancer survivors. Many are articles written for the layperson, easy to understand, with the actual study in references. My approach is: "There is no data to support that the ketogenic diet by itself can treat, cure, maintain, or manage cancer, nor that it supports treatment of the many different types of cancer. In animal studies, the diet provided some synergistic effects with treatments, including current treatment like radiation therapy and chemotherapy. These articles focus on a ketogenic diet when used as an adjuvant therapy to standard of care, when no standard care options are available, and its possible extension to prevention. Its use as a weight loss diet may provide added benefit."

It was the Cancer chapter in Gary Taubes Good Calories, Bad Calories that convinced me to radically change my diet to Low carb in 2010. (have that as a .pdf now) The Ketogenic Bible by Jacob Wilson has a 21 Page chapter on Cancer (also many other diseases).

Thought that was you Janet!!!!!

Thank you, Im on a quest to prevent cancer, as you know by now. Much of last visit with family surrounded indepth discussions of genetic testing ( which I am no longer in favor of), organ removal ( which I am no longer in favor of) and only a small bit on how to prevent cancer. On the latter I tried to introduce low carb diets, but one family is completely on board with Dr Lustig and blaming the sugar fructose only. {thud}

Hoping a good book like the above will move their position.

Dr Seyfried's Press-Pulse is important new development in treatment. https://nutritionandmetabolism.biom...2986-017-0178-2 Dom talks about that in his recent interviews.
