Fight cancer with a high-fat diet

Scientists say you may be able
to fight cancer with FATS!

Ketogenic diets require you to cut most starchy carbohydrates and increase your intake of healthy fats and protein.
The diet makes your body enter a state called ketosis, where it burns fat-derived chemicals called ketones in the absence of carbohydrates. The diet is so rich in fats, most people will find it satisfying.
Now, if you’ve been reading this newsletter for long, you know we recommend a low-refined-carb diet for cancer prevention and treatment. And you also know we recommend healthy fats like those from coconut, avocado and nuts. Dramatic new proof of this view now comes from some studies that specifically studied the ketogenic approach. Here’s what they discovered...

Oliver was doomed to die from cancer
within 8 hours --
But then he found out what to do. . .
    Oliver had reached the end of the road in his seven-year fight against cancer. His doctors didn't think this 32-year-old man would live through the night.

But when I talked to Oliver six years later, he was the picture of health! He got rid of his cancer completely.

Yes, Oliver found the answer — his own cancer miracle.

I sat down with him and his doctor and they told me an incredible story. . . a story that could help save you or someone you love from this dreaded disease.

Since the 1920s, doctors have recommended the ketogenic type of diet for children who suffer with seizures. And many other folks have found this to be an enormously effective way to lose weight fast.
Ketogenic diets can also help:
  • Keep your body energized all day
  • Manage or prevent Type 2 diabetes
  • Stabilize blood sugar levels
Now researchers have discovered that ketogenic diets may also have a profound impact on curbing the growth of cancer cells in your body, too.
Various research groups have investigated this phenomenon. Here are just a couple of the studies that have produced intriguing results:
  • Adrienne C. Scheck, PhD led a team of researchers at the Barrow Neurological Institute at St. Joseph’s Hospital and Medical Center in Phoenix, AZ.

    In the study, mice with high-level malignant gliomas were either fed a standard or a ketogenic diet. Both groups received radiation therapy.

    Dr. Scheck’s team discovered that animals fed a ketogenic diet had an increased median survival of approximately five days relative to animals maintained on a standard diet.

    What’s more, nine of the 11 mice that ate a ketogenic diet and received radiation survived with no signs of tumor recurrence for over 200 days—even after switching back to standard food! In contrast, none of animals eating a standard diet survived more than 33 days.

    The researchers theorized that the ketogenic diet may reduce growth factor stimulation, thereby preventing tumor growth. Barrow scientists also believe that it may reduce inflammation and edema surrounding the tumors.
  • Dr. Dominic D'Agostino, assistant professor at the University of South Florida, worked with a research team to remove carbohydrates from the diets of lab mice. They found that when mice received chemotherapy treatments, the high-fat diet helped them survive highly aggressive, metastatic cancer even better.

    According to a CBN News report, Dr. D'Agostino has seen similar results in people as well. "I've been in correspondence with a number of people," he said. "At least a dozen over the last year-and-a-half to two years, and all of them are still alive, despite the odds. So this is very encouraging."
So what’s the secret to successfully fighting cancer with fatty foods?
Curb your carbs...cut your cancer risk...
and improve your health!
You might be aware that just like other cells in your body, cancer cells gobble up sugar to help them metabolize. In fact, cancer cells consume glucose at a far higher rate than do healthy cells.
But when glucose is lacking, other body cells can use ketones as an alternative fuel. Cancer cells CAN’T.
Because ketogenic diets drastically reduce dietary sugars, cancer cells literally starve to death.
Besides producing a breeding ground for cancer, high-carb diets also promote inflammation in your body. This can lead to a host of other health problems including:

  • Alzheimer's disease
  • Asthma
  • Allergies
  • Arthritis
  • Diabetes
  • Heart disease
  • Osteoporosis     
  • According to Dr. D’Agostino, the formula for a ketogenic diet should be about 75% fats, 23% protein and 2% carbohydrates. That’s a very low level of carbohydrates.
    And it might be helpful to clarify what kinds of foods should be included in these categories. For example:
    • Healthy fats: avocado, butter, coconut and virgin olive oils, eggs, nuts; steer clear of manmade "trans" fats, such as shortening, margarine and hydrogenated oils
    • Healthy proteins: grass-fed meats, mackerel, lake trout and salmon; forget about processed meats, like cold cuts and hot dogs that often have carbohydrates added to them.
    • Allowable carbohydrates: less-starchy vegetables such as asparagus, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, carrots, lettuce, onions, turnips and spinach; avoid high-carbohydrate starchy vegetables like plantains, potatoes, pumpkin, squash, corn and peas.
    If any of this looks familiar, it’s because we’ve been recommending the same kind of diet for years, for people who have cancer and want to get rid of it, or who don’t have cancer and want to make sure they stay that way.
    The only quibble is that many renowned experts on alternative cancer treatment recommend a diet containing NO animal protein. I think this stricture is harsh and unnecessary. I lean toward more recent findings that moderate consumption of animal protein agrees with some people and disagrees with others. But there isn’t enough evidence to settle the matter.
    When choosing nuts, keep in mind that almonds, cashews, macadamia nuts, walnuts and other tree nuts are all high in fat. But they contain healthy fats that won’t clog your arteries or raise your cholesterol levels.
    What’s more, nuts are an excellent source of nutrition because they’re packed with copper, fiber, folic acid, magnesium, and vitamin E.
    They also provide a great source of protein and no carbohydrates. Choose nuts that are raw and unsalted for maximum benefit.
    If you choose to follow a ketogenic diet plan, you may find it to be effective at curbing sugar cravings…energizing your whole body…and keeping cancer cells at bay for years to come.
