Healthy Video: Killing Cancer with a Ketogenic Diet

Video Notes

  • Sugar is cancer food, cut off the carbs and kill off the cancer.
  • Fred Hatfield, killed his cancer, completely gone, one year later.
  • Three doctors gave Fred three months to live a wide-spread skeletal metastatic cancer.
  • The anti-cancer diet Fred followed, also called “metabolic therapy”, is a ketogenic diet.
  • Carbohydrates turn to glucose in the body and cancer cells love glucose.
  • Dr. Dominic D’Agostino, University of South Florida, leading the cancer research.
  • Dr. D’Agostino found when he removed carbs from the diet of his lab mice, they survived aggressive cancer.
  • Even better than when treated with chemotherapy.
  • He is seeing similar success in people with cancer.
  • All cells are fueled by glucose, if they are deprived of glucose, as on a ketogenic diet,  they will switch to using ketones.
  • Except for cancer cells.
  • Normal cells have metabolic flexibility to adapt to using ketone bodies, cancer cells lack this flexibility.
  • When you deprive cancer cells of glucose they die.

If you would like to investigate the principles of a low-carbohydrate ketogenic lifestyle, I recommend reading the following resources:
