The Real Story About The Ketogenic Diet For You And Your Pets

With new research continuing to add further credibility to the accumulating evidence for its remarkable health benefits, more and more people are wondering whether the ketogenic diet could be the “miracle weight loss and medical cure-all” that society has long been seeking. This month, Sandie and Dr. Worden put ketogenics under the “Truth in Medicine” microscope to separate fact from maybe fiction and bring you the latest findings from the leading edge of research. In addition to discussing the specific (and documented) health and weight-loss benefits of a ketogenic diet, they will also be talking to guest experts, Ron Penna, Founder of Quest Nutrition and the 501c3 Epigenix Foundation/KetoPet Sanctuary, and Program Director, Victoria Field, who will be sharing exciting research on the efficacy of a ketogenic diet in the treatment of cancer in humans and pets.
