A new study reports the Ketogenic diet can help to improve cognition. The study reports the Ketogenic diet can help improve balance in the gut microbiome, lower blood glucose levels and increase the processes that help to clear amyloid beta from the brain.
Combining an antibiotic drug that targets glutamine with the ketogenic diet helps kill glioblastoma cancer cells, reversing symptoms of the disease and improving survivability in mouse models.

Researchers report mice that were put on a ketogenic diet showed significant improvements in memory and were more likely to survive to older ages than those on different diets.
Researchers report our gender can determine longevity and response to treatment for glioblastoma brain cancer. The study reports male survival is determined by genes that control cell division, where as female survival is often determine by genes that regulate the ability of cancer cells to migrate to different brain areas.
