    Thanks so much for this information. I have immediately tweeted this new information of which I was unaware and will insure that in future I include this as a qualification when talking about the ketogenic diet and cancer. Interestingly glutamine is a gluconeogenic amino acid. In other words it is able to be converted to glucose. The point remains that cancer has a nutritional/metabolic component so that what you eat influences your risk of developing cancer. And unlike what I was taught at medical school, it is not fat in the diet that is carcinogenic; rather it is carbohydrate. The future of cancer therapy no longer lies in chemotherapy but, at least in part, in starving cancer cells of their energy source. Glad that there was nothing else I said in this nearly hour long interview that qualifies as “faith healing”. Thanks also for bringing this interpretation of why we have an obesity/diabetes epidemic to the attention of your readers. There is little that is more important in the medical sciences than the reversal of this epidemic. To some extent the future of all of us will be determined by whether or not we can reverse that epidemic.

      @ProfTimNoakes @dieticianSA Prof, you really should know that all cancers is not carbohydrate dependant. Read research leader Seyfried— albie_cilliers (@albie_cilliers) January 30, 2014

    Hi Jacques,

    I’m currently compiling a systematic review on the efficacy of traditional healers in treating mental illness. I would very much like to hear your radio discussion, so please persist in trying to convert it into a playable audio format!

    Many thanks,
    Gareth
