Cancer disease is the second cause of death in the United States and world-wide. Most Researchers estimate that 595,690 of American people will die from cancer at the end of the year 2017. That means 1,600 deaths/day approximately. 39 Cancer in modern societies is commonly treated with the combination of organ surgery, chemotherapy and radiotherapy. Many kinds of diet strategies have been experimented. However, none of them have been particularly effective. Interestingly, there is some applied…

Reactive Oxygen Species along with Reactive Nitrogen Species (ROS/RNS) as the Main Cause of Multiple Sclerosis

The role of mitochondrial metabolism, environmental temperature and distance from the equator has been discussed in this research, and the amounts of Reactive Oxygen Species (ROS) and Reactive Nitrogen species (RNS) has been found to be the most possible cause of multiple sclerosis in men and women.

Exogenous Ketone Supplement Ingestion And Submaximal Exercise Response in Trained, Male Cyclists: A Randomised, Double-blind Study

Although the exogenous ketone supplements were able to induce a mild state of ketosis (>0.5 mmol/L), no positive effect on exercise response was shown.



Nutritional Ketosis Condition And Specific Ketogenic Diet, May Benefit Cancer Patients As An Alternative Treatment By Sudden Change In The Metabolic State Of Cancer Cells

The very low low-carbohydrate ketogenic diet and mostly ketosis, may benefit cancer patients in reducing and weakening cancer cells.

Ketogenic diets as an adjuvant cancer therapy: History and potential mechanism

Is there a role for carbohydrate restriction in the treatment and prevention of cancer?

The possible beneficial effects of low CHO diets on cancer prevention and treatment are addressed, with emphasis on the role of insulin and IGF1 signaling in tumorigenesis as well as altered dietary needs of cancer patients.

Effects of a ketogenic diet on tumor metabolism and nutritional status in pediatric oncology patients: two case reports.

While this ketogenic diet does not replace conventional antineoplastic treatments, these preliminary results suggest a potential for clinical application which merits further research.

Effects of a ketogenic diet on the quality of life in 16 patients with advanced cancer: A pilot trial

Pilot data suggest that a ketogenic diet is suitable for even advanced cancer patients and has no severe side effects and might improve aspects of quality of life and blood parameters in some patients with advanced metastatic tumors.

The calorically restricted ketogenic diet, an effective alternative therapy for malignant brain cancer

The results indicate that KetoCal® has anti-tumor and anti-angiogenic effects in experimental mouse and human brain tumors when administered in restricted amounts and should be considered as an alternative therapeutic option for malignant brain cancer.

Beyond weight loss: a review of the therapeutic uses of very-low-carbohydrate (ketogenic) diets

The meaning of physiological ketosis is revisited and whether there are still some preconceived ideas about ketogenic diets, which may be presenting unnecessary barriers to their use as therapeutic tools in the physician's hand are questioned.

The Ketogenic Diet and Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Prolong Survival in Mice with Systemic Metastatic Cancer

KD and HBO2T produce significant anti-cancer effects when combined in a natural model of systemic metastatic cancer, and the evidence suggests that these therapies should be further investigated as potential non-toxic treatments or adjuvant therapies to standard care for patients with systemic metastasis disease.
