Starving Cancer: Ketogenic Diet a Key to Recovery – CBN.com


imagine a free cancer treatment with virtually no side effects and it can be used at the same time as other treatments does it exist yes it does with amazing promise supporters say sugar is cancer food so if you cut out the carbs you can actually kill off the cancer and they have some amazing success stories to back them up Lori Johnson has more dr. Fred Hatfield is an impressive guy he’s a powerlifting champion author millionaire businessman with a beautiful wife but he’ll tell you his greatest accomplishment is killing his cancer just in the nick of time the doctors gave me three months to live because of widespread metastatic cancer in my skeletal structure three months three different doctors told me that same thing it’s a horrible horrible feeling to have someone tell you that the person that you love only has three months to live and you’re not gonna be with him anymore while fred was preparing to die he heard about an anti-cancer diet also known as metabolic therapy with nothing to lose he gave it a try and was shocked when it actually worked and the cancer was gone completely to this day there’s no trace of it and it’s been over a year although it wasn’t easy Fred stopped eating carbohydrates because carbohydrates turn into glucose inside your body cancer cells love glucose and need it so badly that if you stop giving it to them they die and it just absolutely amazes me that medical science is just now finding this out Fred’s recovery was not a surprise to dr. Dominick D’Agostino his team of scientists at the University of South Florida study metabolic therapy when they removed carbohydrates from the diets of lab mice the mice survived highly aggressive metastatic cancer even better than when they were treated with chemotherapy we have dramatically increased survival with metabolic terapy so we think it’s important to get this information out and it’s not just lab mice he’s also seen similar success in people lots of them I’ve been in correspondence with a number of people probably at least a dozen people and over the last year and a half to two years and all of them are still alive so despite the odds and so this is very encouraging all cells including cancer cells are fueled by glucose but if you deprive them of glucose they switch to the alternate fuel ketone bodies all except cancer cells a defect prevents them from making the switch to using ketone bodies as fuel and therefore cancer cells can only survive on glucose all other cells can use either glucose or ketone bodies your normal cells have the metabolic flexibility to adapt from using glucose to using ketone bodies but cancer cells lack this metabolic flexibility so we can exploit that people like Fred who deprived their cells of glucose and fuel them with ketone bodies instead eat what’s known as a ketogenic diet it consists of almost zero carbohydrates but lots of natural protein and fat you can go online and there’s just cookbooks and you know it’s not it’s it’s clean eating just very clean eating none of the sugars the salts the you know the trash food natural proteins are ones in their original form but processed meats like cold cuts and hot dogs are off-limits because often carbohydrates have been added to them natural fats are in their original form like olive oil avocados nuts and also coconut oil but stay away from trans fats such as shortening or margarine which are man-made some people are afraid to try the ketogenic diet because they think all this fat is bad for their heart but more doctors are now saying natural fat is actually good for you even natural saturated fat like coconut oil and butter doctors like cardiologists tea in Sinatra his cholesterol the major cause of heart disease absolutely not in his book the great cholesterol myth he says the real cause of heart disease is inflammation which comes from eating too many carbohydrates we need to coach our patients and empower them about the dangers of sugar unfortunately they’re not hearing that they’re hearing the converse the dangers of fat fat is healthy for you as long as you avoid trans fats so by cutting back on carbohydrates and eating natural fats and proteins you could improve your heart health and even wipe out cancer amazing our reporter Laurie Johnson is with us Laurie why isn’t the medical establishment shouting this from the housetops it’s fabulous two words drug companies you should run now we know how expensive this kind of research is and who normally pays for medical research the drug the drug companies and why do they pay for the medical research because they’re usually testing a drug and if the research goes well then they’ll make a whole pile of money on that drug when it’s approved well this is a diet who’s gonna make money off of a diet so they’re not testing it suppliers are gonna have a cartel they always exactly and you know talking about this cancer story just a short time ago I received word of a woman who had cancer of the salivary glands yes it was getting ready to have surgery disfiguring surgery on her jaw she went on the ketogenic diet and now she doesn’t have to have the surgery and the ketogenic diet has been a godsend for children with epilepsy now I’ve already done a story on this it’s been a couple years and for folks who didn’t get to see it I went up to the Mayo Clinic and interviewed parents of a little boy who was having a hundred seizures a day nothing was helping him and then one of his doctors said hey maybe the problem is glucose so they took him off carbohydrates and his seizures stopped like that and now kids all over the country are on the ketogenic diet kids with epilepsy 20 at least 20 years ago there was a diet that he didn’t ketosis and you had those urine strips and I had to turn blue purple to see if you’re in quote ketosis but as I recall my joints cuts or and some bad things happen it wasn’t always sweetness and light with that well it’s not real simple and there are there I have tons of information and lots of links on our website if people are interested in going on it at first blush I would say maybe you weren’t eating enough fat you know a lot of people think the ketogenic diet is all meat but it’s really a lot of fat too and you don’t have to go you know if you are dying of cancer or if you have epilepsy then definitely a strict ketogenic diet would be right for you for those of us who are trying to prevent cancer a moderate ketogenic diet has been proven to be very successful I’m on that I’ve had cancer and I don’t want it coming back you look so great well can’t you my mom had a different kind of cancer and so I’m at high risk for that so I’m on a moderate ketogenic diet which allows for more carbohydrates than the strict ketogenic diet but fewer than the average American eats the average American eats about 60% carbohydrates and a moderate ketogenic is about 40 25% Carlos the little hidden killers that are out there that we’re not even aware of well topping the list for sure are the trans fats we’ve talked about this before but I really don’t think people are getting the message anything you look at the label anything that says hydrogenated that’s a trans fat those are molecular Li just one molecule away from plastic your cells cannot communicate when you’re eating trans fat and they are in everything and then we’ve also talked about the high fructose corn syrup sugar which is in everything and those two things get worse – eating standard bread they’ve got corn syrup on it everybody’s got corn syrup that’s right well Haddie I mean you’ve really got to be a detective reading all the labeling well you know it’s same way with a lot of things in our society it used to be you could just turn on the TV and watch whatever’s on now you have to be need more desertion used to be you could walk into the grocery store and just eat anything that was on the shelf now you have to be more discerning well we did a feature here held up the cans of soup on MSG which is excitotoxin does that have Nate plenty bearing and all of these things you’re talking about the MSG and the yes they have come out with all kinds of research about how bad that is and if you go on our website cbn.com there are a list of things that contain MSG hydrolyzed yeast act extract think if the rule of thumb is if you don’t know what it is show me that it’s a chemical named butter hey I got you olive oil we I’m going to say there I have a lot of information on our website about the ketogenic diet a strict ketogenic diet for people with cancer and epilepsy or a moderate ketogenic diet for people who are wanting to prevent cancer and you know how I was saying in the story there are no side effects there actually is one side effect of the ketogenic diet what you say you lose weight you got it because that glucose your body has to burn glucose before it burns fat so if you’ve got all that glucose in your blood it’s never gonna burn that fat you say it’s the fat that keeps you make the joints well the joints get with too many lives ketones it’s like the sludge in a furnace you got to burn it up cleanly and it takes the fat to do that mm-hmm it sure does and really it’s recommended that if you’re gonna go on the ketogenic diet learn about it okay first and again I have a lot of links on our website where people can you know read certain books about it and find out all about it or they watch people that we love wasting away with cancer and you’re praying and asking God to heal them and the healing doesn’t take place and they that stuff is just this it’s like a killer and if this thing would kill cancer that would be those wonderful thing I mean what up slowly I believe it and that’s why I’m on it myself to prevent it I’m very inhospitable to cancer cells if they want to go visit me I am NOT going to feed them kill them all Larry Johnson ladies and gentlemen you can look up for a website uh what large on it’s actually cbn.com interest and this story will pop up and there are all kinds of links and information cookbooks you can even cook things like cupcakes and breads on the ketogenic diet because they use special ingredients so for the kids who have epilepsy that’s especially nice for that my suit my minestrone soup has absolutely none of these nasty things in it it is so good for you it also has a little olive oil too
