Carl Franklin and Richard Morris talk to Oncologist Dr. Nasha Winters about her experiences treating cancer using, in part, a ketogenic diet. The somewhat simplified idea is that many tumors can be shrunk significantly, sometimes to the point where they are no longer a threat, by starving them of their primary fuel: glucose. Cancer is the next frontier for the ketogenic diet and fasting.
