During the 1930’s Pediatricians at the Mayo Clinic published the first-ever long-term clinical trial showing the Ketogenic Diet was effective for epilepsy (60% seizure free, 35% improved, ~ 5% no effect).
In 1938 the drug Dilantin became available; despite having sedative and loads of toxic side effects—and being less effective than the ketogenic diet in terms of seizure remission—doctors and patients opted for the pill 💊 instead of having to eat lower-carb foods.
90 years later politicians are closing gyms (even though exercise is an immune enhancer) while allowing people to continue to eat and drink highly-processed fake food that compromises immunity because the pill is coming.
Diet and lifestyle change isn’t sexy or profitable, so it’s frequently relegated to unsubstantiated quackery, even though it’s often more effective than pills and shots.
