Dr. Sarah Hallberg: Can a ketogenic diet help prevent cancer?

So with that, our next
question, can you provide any clinical that the ketogenic
diet is helpful in preventing cancer? – So there are a lot of trials
ongoing here as a potential adjunct cancer treatment. So by adjunct I mean in
addition to traditional cancer treatment. So in order to answer that
question and as a prevention for cancer, there would
have to be a really long what we call the hard outcomes trial. And I think that honestly
we’re probably pretty far away from that, but we’re not
that far away of finding out how a ketogenic die may play
a role in cancer treatment, because as I said right
now, over the next few years we’re expecting many of
the ongoing trials in this very area to get published
and really help with some insights into this question.
