302: Dr. Thomas Seyfried: A Calorie-Restricted Ketogenic Diet Could Be The Cure For Brain Cancer

...
Today, Jimmy shares his interview with Boston College professor and cancer researcher, Dr. Thomas Seyfried.
...
Dr. Seyfried has been researching the effect of a commercially available ketogenic animal fodder coupled with calorie restriction on brain cancer in mice. The effects have been very promising, but will livin' la vida low-carb prove to be just as efficacious in people who suffer from brain cancer? Listen in to hear this important discussion, as well as Dr. Seyfried's comments on how an annual fast can actually prevent cancer from ever developing!

In fact, I had discussed the ketogenic diet and the fascinating research being carried out by Thomas Seyfried and Dominic D'Agostino, among others, in my original draft.

...
On the surface, the strategy of using drugs to cut off a tumor's supply of nutrients is not unlike the strategy advocated by Thomas Seyfried, at Boston College, who is the author of Cancer as a Metabolic Disease.
...
Warburg "had this thing pegged," Seyfried says.
...
Unlike most cancer metabolism researchers, Seyfried is primarily focused on non-toxic therapies, particularly the ketogenic diet, which has been used as a therapy for epilepsy for decades. The ketogenic diet is a high-fat, very low-carbohydrate diet, though Seyfried believes the diet also has to restrict calories to be effective against cancer.
...
When Seyfried, D'Agostino, and colleagues combined a ketogenic diet with hyperbaric oxygen treatment (HBOT) in a mouse model of aggressive metastatic brain cancer, they were able to dramatically shrink tumors and increase the average survival time from 31.2 days for mice on a standard diet to 55.5 days, a significant increase for an advanced cancer.
...
"Everybody's always saying, 'We want something that targets the cancer cell but spares the normal cell,'" Seyfried says.
...
Or, as Thomas Seyfried of Boston College puts it, "We found out that the son of a bitch is right!"

After doing so, I am mystified as to why there has not been more progress with testing 3BP and other non toxic small molecules mentioned by Seyfried as chemotherapeutic agents.
