  • The ketogenic diet (KD) has seen an increase in popularity for clinical and non‐clinical purposes, leading to rise in concern about the diet's impact on following generations. The KD is known to have a neurological effect, suggesting that exposure to it during prenatal brain development may alter neuro‐anatomy. Studies have also indicated that the KD has an anti‐depressant effect on the consumer. However, it is unclear whether any neuro‐anatomical and/or behavioral changes would occur in the… CONTINUE READING
