    Glioblastoma Utilizes Fatty Acids and Ketone Bodies for Growth Allowing Progression during Ketogenic Diet Therapy

    This study shows how complicated the biology of these tumors are. You can not just say that because something makes sense and seems obvious, it should work. In theory, the ketogenic diet should slow down tumor growth. There are even a few small gbm studies that suggest it might help. This study shows the opposite - that it had the potential to make the tumor grow faster, at least in the test tube.

    This is not proof one way or the other. More research needs to be done.
