However, having been on a ketogenic diet (KD) myself for 2 years and after having read this blog post, I began immediately pushing for putting him on a KD as an adjunct to conventional treatment (chemotherapy and radiation). My wife was a bit skeptical until she saw the massive glucose uptake by these tumors in his initial PET scans. The oncologists and oncological nutritionists were both skeptical and fearful. (That’s another story.)
The probability of the this particular chemotherapy being active against this disease was about 25% (and it was the best shot we had), so we are very pleased with the results so far. We cannot, of course, separate out the effects of the KD (if any) from the chemotherapy, but we believe that using a metabolic treatment in combination with conventional cytotoxic chemotherapy and radiation can only help. Nevertheless, as one oncologist told us, “you can fit a million cells on the head of a pin, and it takes about 1 centimeter of cells in a tumor to become visible on a PET scan,” so we know that “no evidence of disease” does not necessarily mean cancer free.
Thanks so much for this fine 1000 word overview of the subject how cancer cells feed. It was the suggestion I start on Enbrel for my AS (ankylosing spondylitis) and its connection with cancer development over time that got me to researching again. Funny part is I learned a low carb/protein but high fat (MCT type fats) was good for AS. After only 10 days on this diet my joint pain is down by 50%+ and my mobility is up by the same amount (subjective data 🙂 ) plus I have lost a couple pounds. This AM I blew a .023 BAC% reading (.125 on the metric scale) using a $15 meter off eBay but have more studying to do to understand the meaning of these acetone readings. I do hold an OD degree from SCO, Memphis TN 1986 which is helpful understanding research. Will read more of the links you added at the end. Thanks again!
TEE are held to be the second leading cause of death in cancer patients  and patients with TEE over all have poorer outcomes with a 2 fold increase in death rate within 2 years of diagnosis in patients with breast cancer ....

In summary, although not enough time has passed for research to agree on the exact impact of cell phones on brain tumors and other health risks, the evidence so far suggests that we should be cautious. While hands-free driving laws are resulting in greater use of ear pieces in cars, more and more people are opting not to pay for land lines and are relying exclusively on their cell phone. As a result, adults and children are holding cell phones to theirs ears for hours each day.
Why does a student even need to use a cell phone during school.
It is certainlylegitimate to be concerned about these seven cancer clusters, but beforeconcluding that cell phones have anything to do with it, we'd need moredata: how many of the other 47,000 masts have cancer clusters?

The brain lets a person know if they’re hungry, tired, happy, sad, angry, upset, or excited all while reminding the body’s lungs to breathe, heart to beat, stomach to digest food, and many other involuntary actions.1 While the brain is a very efficient organ, things can go wrong and affect the brain negatively....
