Scientists discover an upside to the keto diet just in time for allergy season

Scientists discovered that mice who adhere to low-carb, high-fat diet (which the scientists describe as a ketogenic diet), may be less susceptible to asthma – a condition that affects over 19 million adults in the United States, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

That protection, the study suggests, is likely because the diet slowed the overproduction of certain cells in the respiratory system. This overproduction drives inflammation, which causes constricted breathing — the uncomfortable and scary hallmark of asthma.

This is encouraging; however, there are several statements in the article with which I strongly disagree related to long-term advantages and compliance. Typical of the author dutifully reporting "perceived" pros and cons without any detailed experience or knowledge.

"We haven’t performed any human studies yet, but there is some evidence that ketogenic diet may be effective in combating cancer or epilepsy," Wilhelm says. "There are no further restrictions to start performing clinical trials testing the efficacy of the ketogenic diet in humans. In fact, we are in the process of setting up such a trial."

Maybe they should check in with D'Agostino, Seyfried, the clinical experiences of Wilder starting in 1921, and others who have significant experience in studies and treatments in these areas. Many articles report on keto as new, and it's hardly that. What's new are RCTs that confirm many benefits.
