What does it take to disabuse the majority of food consumers that a no or low fat diet is actually unhealthy. There have been conventional cardiologists who’ve recently asserted that we need healthy fats to maintain good cardiovascular health.
They have debunked the myth of cholesterol as the cause of clogged arteries and heart attacks and warned about statin drugs’ dangers. Statin drugs do lower cholesterol.
But brain and nervous system tissue need cholesterol and other types of fats to rebuild and maintain proper function. Statin users have a high rate of dementia, including Alzheimer’s.
Skin cholesterol is what starts the conversion process of UVB sunlight exposure to vitamin D3 in the liver. Without cholesterol, there’s no conversion, thus insufficient vitamin D3.
Now, recent mainstream research discoveries have shown that a high fat diet can reverse aggressive cancers. Don’t expect any faction of the cancer industry to disclose this.
They all need to receive funding to research patentable drugs that don’t cure while they keep killing with chemo, radiation, and surgery to enrich Big Pharma.
There are several anecdotal cancer reversals with this diet, but the most amazing involves a former world power lifting champion, trainer, and successful business owner Dr. Fred Hatfield. He has the doctor title because he completed graduate studies in kinesiology.
Hatfield was diagnosed with aggressive, metastatic skeletal cancer. Three doctors gave the same prognosis of three months left to live. He desperately researched and came across the ketogenic diet as something he should try.
University of South Florida metabolic researcher Dr. Dominic D’Agostino had discovered that cancerous mice who were put on high fat non-carbohydrate glucose diets recovered from cancer better than mice on chemotherapy.
Maybe that’s not saying much, but Fred Hatfield had nothing to lose and put it to the test.
He avoided all carbohydrates and sugars. He consumed a fair amount of good meats and lots of good fats, not cheap trans-fatty acid hydrogenated oils or margarine that are one molecule away from being plastic and cannot be metabolized.
Among the good fats are eggs, avocado, cold pressed olive, flax seed, hemp oils, real butter, and the once vilified coconut oil. Yes, even the maligned saturated fats. Hatfield’s cancer cleared up in a few, short months and he was still in good health a year later.
Researcher Dr. D’Agostino has received communication from a dozen others who have successfully used a ketogenic diet to reverse cancer.
Cancer cells ferment glucose to thrive because they are deprived of oxygen that normal healthy cells use for metabolism. Good, healthy fats deliver fatty acids that are converted to energy bestowing ketones when the body’s cells are deprived of glucose.
Normal cells can convert ketones for energy; cancer cells cannot. So replacing glucose with ketones starves cancer cells. No side effects, except for weight loss. Take that conventional fat-free weight loss programs.
CBN health reporter Lorrie Johnson, who covered the Hatfield story, claims it’s okay to modify the ketogenic diet somewhat after cancer is reversed. She uses a less strict ketogenic diet after surviving her cancer. Introducing some complex carbs that aren’t easily converted to glucose seems okay without cancer.
Regardless of the well known fact that cancer cells thrive on simple sugars, oncologists never warn their patients about this. Instead, they are fed ice cream or pastries often while undergoing IV chemotherapy.
All alternative cancer therapies have a cancer diet foundation that excludes sugar and simple carbohydrates that convert to glucose easily.
