Couple of titbits....

Ketogenic Diets in Medicine

I've had a few posts in the past about the potential for a ketogenic diet in treating cancer. Peter also has a post today that looks at the same topic.

On the same tack of therapeutic uses for ketogenic diets there was an article in the Guardian today on the use of this diet to treat epilepsy, a practice that has been around for a long time.

Emma has had some interesting posts on this in the past.

UPDATE - Richard has gathered some of this together too.

Cholesterol.....is it bad after all ? (No)

I've just spotted this article by Chris Masterjohn in which he reviews a book which tries to explain why cholesterol is bad. Chris explains some of the errors and omissions in the book. An instructive read.
