DATA: (Mitochondria Biogenesis – shows the opposite)

A recent study found that the ketogenic diet induces cardiac fibrosis is causing people to worry. Let me put your mind at ease.

Today we’re going to talk about a recent study that found that keto induces cardiac fibrosis, which is scar tissue in the heart. Is this something to worry about?

When you evaluate a study, you want to make sure the data in the study is good and truthful. I don’t believe that the version of keto they used in this study is one anyone would actually do.

Let’s look at the type of diet the researchers actually put the rats on in this study:

• Casein — 16.5% of the diet (inflammatory)
• L-cystine — .25% of the diet
• Cellulose — 8.2% of the diet
• Soybean oil — 4.25% of the diet (inflammatory)
• Cocoa butter — 62.7% of the diet
• Dicalcium phosphate — 2.1% of the diet
• Calcium carbonate — .9% of the diet
• Mineral mix — 1.6% of the diet

Keep in mind if a person has cardiac fibrosis, we know there was inflammation going on. Is anyone actually consuming these ingredients? The only way they get away with calling this keto is because it’s low-carb. The diet that they compared this to had different sugars and was just as bad.

Rats also have different physiology from humans. They don’t have gallbladders, and they aren’t designed to consume a lot of fat. To apply this version of keto to rats and then imply that if a person consumes a ketogenic diet they’re going to get fibrosis, seems crazy. I don’t believe this will happen.

Healthy keto is highly anti-inflammatory. It could help prevent scarring by getting rid of inflammation.
