Can Low Carbohydrate Ketogenic Diets Inhibit Cancers?

Two Professors from SUNY Downstate Medical Center in the United States have turned to crowdfunding in their efforts to fund research on the benefits of ketogenic diets in inhibiting cancer growth. Professor Eugene J. Fine and Professor Richard D. Feinman believe that while insulin supports growth of normal cells, it also supports the growth of cancers. The effects of a very low carbohydrate diet has the potential to inhibit cancer growth without harming normal tissues.
