[Preview] The latest science behind a keto diet
I’m watching with interest the new data,
new science that’s controversial.
The treatment of Alzheimer’s, and cancer
and all these things
that look really promising.
But they’re not at the level
of the FDA approval for a drug.
So I watch this and it’s
a little frustrating…
I don’t know the right word,
but we have all of these data saying
diabetes and obesity…
“Do it, use low-carb, use keto,
it’s safe, it’s effective.”
But some people, their first introduction is
the use of low-carb or keto
with one of these
less established diseases.
And there’s this desire
to have controversy and all that.
In fact we’ve worked hard
to keep low-carb out of the news,
because it’s not news
that treats diabetes.
And yet now you have
the newsworthy new treatment,
but the level of evidence
isn’t merely the same.
Does that make sense?
Absolutely, low-carb is being brought open
in particularly controversial topics,
which isn’t ideal.
Well, it’s not controversial
for diabetes and obesity
and yet that spills over, doesn’t it.
