Health Impact News Editor Comments
One of the most exciting areas of research we have covered here at Health Impact News the past year has been regarding the high-fat ketogenic diet and how it can cure cancer.
The ketogenic diet is not new. This high-fat low-carb diet was developed at John Hopkins Hospital in the 1920s for children suffering from epilepsy. They found that children who did not respond well to anti-seizure drugs often became seizure-free after following a strict ketogenic diet.
The diet is named after “ketones”, which are an alternate source of energy supplied to the brain when the body reaches a state of “ketosis”. One can generally reach a state of ketosis by fasting from all foods, but you can also experience the effects of ketosis by eating a diet high in fats with very few carbohydrates, limiting insulin production. Coconut oil is one the best fats to use in a ketogenic diet, as it leads to more rapid ketosis.
Research shows the ketogenic diet literally starves cancer cells. This fact is becoming widely known, even in the medical community, as they look for ways to develop drugs to mimic the effects of the ketogenic diet. One of the reasons they want to develop drugs to replace the diet, is because the diet can be so “restrictive”, and it is very difficult to break people’s addiction to sugar and processed carbs.
One does not have to wait for drugs to be developed, however, to start enjoying the benefits of a ketogenic diet. People who are following a ketogenic diet are beating cancer, reversing Alzheimer’s disease, stopping seizures, beating diabetes, losing weight, and much more.
In the video above, Joe Mancaruso explains how he beat stage 4 lung cancer with a ketogenic diet, exercise, and positive living. He was given 6 months to live by the doctors, who wanted to put him on chemotherapy. Joe was already a survivor of testicular cancer from 1985. Since he supposedly only had 6 months to live, he decided he wanted a better quality of life during those 6 months than he would have had on chemotherapy and refused the drugs. Today, he is cancer free.
We Lost the War on Cancer – Review of Alternative Cancer Therapies
We have lost the war on cancer. At the beginning of the last century, one person in twenty would get cancer. In the 1940s it was one out of every 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.
The cancer industry is probably the most prosperous business in the United States. In 2014, there will be an estimated 1,665,540 new cancer cases diagnosed and 585,720 cancer deaths in the US. $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.
The simple fact is that the cancer industry employs too many people and produces too much income to allow a cure to be found. All of the current research on cancer drugs is based on the premise that the cancer market will grow, not shrink.
John Thomas explains to us why the current cancer industry prospers while treating cancer, but cannot afford to cure it in Part I. In Part II, he surveys the various alternative cancer therapies that have been proven effective, but that are not approved by the FDA.
