Thanks to Jimmy Moore’s Livin’ La Vida Low Carb blog for highlighting this fantastic video from ‘The 700 Club’ on CBN News which discusses how a high-fat, low-carb ketogenic diet can be used to battle cancer or help prevent it in the first place. It is an amazing watch lasting just under 12 minutes and please share with anyone you think it might help…

Did you happen to see this amazing extended CBN News story that aired on “The 700 Club” on December 14, 2012 called Starving Cancer: Ketogenic Diet a Key to Recovery by CBN News Medical Reporter Lorie Johnson? WOW, what a fantastic segment highlighting the critical role of a high-fat, low-carb ketogenic diet for battling cancer featuring cardiologist and The Cholesterol Myth co-author Dr. Stephen Sinatra (who was just on The Dr. Oz Show) and Dr. Dominic D’Agostino from the University of South Florida. There were quite a few nutritional truths shared in this 10+ minute story and commentary I wanted to share in bullet form with you from this video:
