One of the biggest misconceptions of the last 50 years is the belief that eating a high fat diet is bad for you.
It has been proven time and again recently that fat is not the enemy, and that eating the right kind of high fat foods can be extremely beneficial for you.
New research is even suggesting a high fat diet may be an effective way to fight cancer.
Cholesterol has been linked with clogged arteries and heart attacks, but the body needs cholesterol to function, and to perform important brain functions.
High fat diets have been linked to certain cancers, but it is learning which fats to eat that is key.
Dr. Fred Hatfield has studies to effects of a ketogenic diet on cancer first hand, after being diagnosed with cancer himself.
Taking inspiration from Dr. Dominic D’Agostino’s research on high fat diets in cancerous mice, and being given only 3 months left to live, Dr. Hatfield embarked upon a keto (high fat) diet.
He avoided all carbohydrates and sugars, ate only meats and good fats (avocado, eggs, olive oil, flax seed, hemp, cocnut oils).
After a few months, Dr. Hatfield found his cancer had regressed, and is still in good health now years later.
It is important when embarking upon a high fat diet to avoid cheap fats such as trans fats, and hydroginated fats and oils which are of no nutrionla value to the body whatsoever.
Dr. D’Agostino can also boast of other followers of his diet that have seen a reversal of their cancer after embarking upon the high fat diet he suggests.
Ongoing oncological studies are bringing us closer towards the cure for cancer, but the health benefits of this diet can be seen for themselves.
