Can a High-Fat Diet Beat Cancer?
An article appeared in "Time" magazine in 2007 (thanks JC).
This is supposed to be a small-scale pilot study preceeding a full scientific investigation. I am not holding my breath.
Some terminally ill cancer patients in womens' hospital (University of Wurzburg) selected from among the hopeless cases, did get better, that is those who did not opt out due to sugar cravings. Strict ketogenic diet with no carbohydrates, using specially selected vegetable oils such as hempseed and linseed (flaxseed) oils. I wonder why did these medics not just use some common animal fat. Makes me wonder what else they might have done wrong. Still it seemed to have worked! Drs. McDougall, Ornish - any comments? .
Physicist (my original degree is in atmospheric physics and geophysics but I graduated in space physics), sensor design consultant, embedded software, (website),(picture of my lab). My consulting company: website and resume. Recently working full-time on consumer audio products. This blog contains essays, articles and debates on human nutrition (high animal fat low carb since 1999), science and other topics. I welcome all heresies - which I always regard as beneficial! I welcome debates and discourage conformity of any kind. I seek creative and self-reliant people. I am currently interested in nutritional biochemistry and human -to-primate social regression (link) emerging in the collectivistic cultures.
