Has anybody tried ketogenic diet? There was a recent article about a study done on a mouse model of metastatic cancer (for a type of brain tumor) that showed the combination of ketogenic diet and hyperbaric oxygen prolonged survival:
It's been observed that most cancer cells consume more sugar than normal cells which they process in the cytosol instead of the mitochondria to produce energy in a very ineffective way called the Warburg effect:
This is why PET scans are used to detect tumors. And the idea behind the ketogenic diet is to reduce the tumor's fuel supply for energy by reducing their carbohydrate supply.
Until now, I had mixed feeling about this method because my tumors had never lighted up on PET scans. But I had a PET scan on Monday and for the first time it did.
