My wife and I started keto in late June primarily because she had been fighting non-Hodgkins lymphoma since February, and she read a book called “How To Starve Cancer”.

Since then I’ve lost about 30 pounds, she’s lost around twenty, she wrapped up six rounds of chemo, and the lump in her neck is gone. Now she is just being closely observed for a while, but we think it’s gone.

According to that book, and along with a lot of studies I’ve read, many specific types cancer cells can only consume forms of sugar. Cutting out sugar can possibly starve cancer cells, urging them to undergo programmed cell death, or apoptosis.

We’re using keto as a preventive measure, as this was her second seemingly unrelated cancer (she also beat colon cancer about five years ago).

Some food for thought.
