According to a review of studies published in Redox Biology, a keto diet is most effective against colon, gastric and prostate cancer. Dr. Eugene Fine says that ketone bodies fight cancer by changing the availability of energy processes within the cells. “Preliminary data demonstrate that an insulin-inhibiting diet is safe and feasible in selected patients with advanced cancer.
The extent of ketosis, but not calorie deficit or weight loss, correlated with stable disease or partial remission,” a preliminary paper of Dr. Fine’s team of scientists stated.

Cutting carbs has also been known to help with neurological disorders such as Parkinson’s or Alzheimer’s disease. According to a study, patients suffering from Parkinson’s experienced a 43% reduction of symptoms after a month of ketogenic diet. Several studies have suggested that ketogenic diets may be the cure for autism. As one study reported, “Autism shares some features with epilepsy, and many people with autism experience seizures related to the over-excitement of brain cells.” According to the research, most autistic children experienced significant improvements after only 6 months.
