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.
