The ketogenic diet is a natural, non-toxic, science-based cancer diet which can be used for cancer treatment and prevention. Cancer cells are dependent upon a constant supply of blood sugar (glucose) to stay alive. Normal cells can use fat-burning by-products called ketones as an alternative fuel when blood glucose is low. But cancer cells can't, so they are dependent upon the sugar (glucose) in your blood stream to fuel themselves. High levels of blood sugar provide more fuel for cancer cells, while low glucose levels starve cancer cells.
Ketogenic diets lower blood glucose while increasing ketone levels, and this creates a metabolic state within the body which effectively starves cancer cells while nourishing normal cells. This patient-oriented, well-referenced book is based on cutting edge research on ketogenic dietary therapies from Dr. Dominic D’Agostino at the University of South Florida and Dr. Thomas Seyfried at Boston College, with their generous permission. Updated in 2017, the Fight Cancer with a Ketogenic Diet, Third Edition electronic book offers 150 pages of the latest information on the new research and complementary therapies, plus:

Why Create the Book?
I researched and wrote this cancer diet eBook because many, many people emailed me asking for information about a ketogenic diet for cancer patients, and there at that time, there was no comprehensive guide available on implementing a ketogenic diet to treat cancer in the mainstream literature.
While the implementation of a ketogenic diet for cancer patients should be monitored by a qualified and knowledgable health professional, the number of health professionals available with knowledge on how to implement the ketogenic diet for cancer patients is limited. I felt that so many people needed help with basic questions on the process, and wrote this book to help fill that knowledge gap. The people who have already purchased this book have written with such positive feedback, and I'm grateful I was able to help them during such a rough period in their lives.
In addition, my own research has convinced me that this dietary protocol will be instrumental in changing the way cancer is prevented and treated. It is my hope that every hospital in the world will eventually have dedicated teams to helping cancer patients implement the diet, just as they do for children with epilepsy.
Some History on Metabolic Dietary Therapy for Cancer Treatment
In 1924, Dr. Otto Warburg, a Nobel Prize winning biochemist, proposed the hypothesis that cancer is a metabolic disease. Dr. Warburg showed in his studies that cancer cells exhibit a preference for using sugar to fuel themselves, even when oxygen needed for normal cellular energy processes is available. He wrote:
“Cancer, above all other diseases, has countless secondary causes. But, even for cancer, there is only one prime cause. Summarized in a few words, the prime cause of cancer is the replacement of the respiration of oxygen in normal body cells by a fermentation of sugar.”
~Otto H. Warburg
Until recently, Dr. Warburg’s hypothesis has been marginalized by the persistent belief in the oncology world that cancer is a genetic disease. However, in a new book Cancer as a Metabolic Disease: On the Origin, Management, and Prevention of Cancer, Dr. Thomas Seyfried has placed Dr. Warburg’s efforts to solve the cancer puzzle back in the medical limelight.
The ketogenic cancer diet for cancer is a very low carb, moderate protein, high fat diet which targets cancer cell glucose metabolism. This cancer diet is designed to target cancer cell vulnerabilities by reducing the sugary fuel and other metabolic factors which promote cancer growth, while at the same time protecting normal cells from the toxic effects of traditional therapies.
In the Fight Cancer with a Ketogenic Diet eBook, we explore the details of this dietary solution and discuss why it works and how to implement it. Get the facts on the how and why metabolic diet therapy is the most promising cancer treatment available to cancer patients. The ketogenic cancer diet has been shown in formal research studies to be especially successful in treating cancers which are highly visible on a FDG-PET scan.
Travis Christofferson, the author of Tripping Over the Truth, tells me that the first U.S. expansion of Care Oncology Clinics has recently opened in Rapid City, SD (August 2017). Care prescribes a patented cocktail of repurposed drugs as an adjunctive oncology treatment. He says the repurposing of drugs seems to be one of those things that should have been done a long time ago in oncology but there is no financial incentive driving it. (much like the ketogenic diet). Everyone agrees it's a great idea, both to bring down costs and improve outcomes, yet it's impossible, under the current system of phase 1, 2, 3, to FDA approval, to get it incorporated into standard of care.
For example, metformin has a plethora of data suggesting efficacy for both the prevention and treatment of most cancers. It costs $4.98 for a month supply. Ironically, the problem is that drugs like metformin languish because they are off-patent and no one can make a profit.
In this backdrop, Care took a bold step and started treating cancer patients off-label with a cocktail of repurposed drugs taken alongside standard of care therapy. The idea was a trial in reverse--treat patients while collecting data. This Telegraph article explains.
After about four years of treating patients they finally have data for the most aggressive form of primary brain cancer, glioblastoma WHO grade IV. The internal analysis conducted to date appears to be extremely encouraging with regards to overall survival, with patients experiencing minimal side effects. And the data is now in the process of being audited by independent bio-statisticians and should be ready for publication in two to three months (November-December 2017).

In addition, Dr. Georgia Ede has an excellent article here on treating cancer with diet.
Dominic D'Agostino, Ph.D , a research scientist who specializes in cancer and mitochondrial disease research, has a blog here on which he discusses the research for using a ketogenic diet as a cancer diet. He recently spoke at TEDxTampa and did an interview with Dr. Joe Mercola on this subject. The Single Cause Single Cure organization has been formed to provide funding for metabolic therapy research.
You can also listen to a podcast interview I did with Erin Chamerlik of Get Better Wellness about the Fight Cancer with a Ketogenic Diet eBook. We talk about how I came to write the book, what's in it, the state of American health, how the cancer diet for patients works, and more.
