Keto diet may stop glioblastoma and other major diseases.

Glioblastoma is a deadly brain cancer –most people survive about a year after diagnosis, including after being treated with surgery, radiation, and chemotherapy.

A new report discusses the case of a British man who started a strict ketogenic diet (zero carb intake) when diagnosed with glioblastoma in 2014; despite pressure from his doctors, he declined chemotherapy and radiation treatment.

He underwent surgery to remove part of the tumor 3 years after diagnosis, and is still alive in 2021, 7 years after his tumor was found.

The tumor is still present, but is growing very slowly.

The patient continues to follow the keto diet, which deprives the cancer cells of the sugar they need to grow, and has maintained a healthy body weight and good quality of life.
