There was good news on the ABC World News... you missed it??? It was stuck between fighting in Libya and $4 gasoline at the pump. Researchers have determined a diet of bacon and cream will control and eventually cure epileptic seizures in children and adolescents. They interviewed families who's lives were changed in just a few days of following the Ketogenic diet. High in fat with extreme restrictions of carbs, it sounds like the old Atkins diet I used to go on. Doctors say yes, it is nutritionally incomplete and supplements have to be added, but the benefits of reducing or eliminating seizures far outweigh the short term diet. They also said the diet was being studied for Alzheimer's and even cancer patients. Wouldn't that be wonderful if all of these things could be helped or cured with something as simple as bacon?
It goes against anything our Mothers ever told us to eat things that are bad. As much as we strive to eat our healthiest, to choose organic whenever possible, to limit processed and sugar from our diet there are those out there trying just as hard to tempt us.
