Autism and High Fat Diets

March 22nd, 2013

Very intriguing study on the effects of a Ketogenic diet on autistic children.

“Overall the 18 ketogenic kids presented with improvements in their social behavior and interactions, speech, cooperation, stereotypy, and… hyperactivity, which contributed significantly to their improvement in learning.”

I think mainstream research into Ketogenic diets spiked a bit after the release of ‘The 4-Hour Body’ by Timothy Ferris.
