    The ketogenic diet produces amazing results in scientific research.

    In the September issue of the journal Cell Metabolism in 2017, an article was published describing the effects of a ketogenic diet on the lifespan and health of mice. Some mice ate ketogenic food, while others ate regular food. The number of calories was the same.

    It turned out that mice fed the ketogenic diet (90% of calories from fat) lived longer than mice on a normal laboratory diet consisting of 65% carbohydrates.

    The same amount of carbohydrates, by the way, is recommended by the American Heart Association, and here you can read why this is bad.

    It is important to note that the keto mice lived on average as much as 13% longer. For a person, this would be 7-10 years.

    But the length of life itself says little about its quality. Therefore, it is no less interesting that the keto mice showed better physical strength and coordination, they had decreased indicators of inflammation associated with aging, and their memory improved.

    Similar results were given by another experiment, which is written about in the same issue of the journal.

    The Lancet published interesting (almost shocking) findings from another, larger-scale study, and this time with people. It has been studied 135 thousand people from 18 countries.

    Their diet, longevity, and health were considered. The result was similar: people who ate fewer carbohydrates and more fat were healthier and showed the least mortality during the follow-up period.

    It seems that more and more data is showing benefits of low-carb diets, and in particular, the ketogenic diet. Maybe keto is the answer to the question, what is "healthy food"?
