A recent study found that ketone supplementation extended survival in mice with metastatic cancer. But while it’s true that most cancers have a highly anaerobic metabolism, this in not universal. If proven to be effective, it’s likely that ketone supplementation would be an additional treatment rather than a stand alone treatment for cancer, because of its robust nature.

For now, almost no studies on ketone supplementation have used human clinical trials. So if anyone tells you that ketone supplementation is a miracle cure, ask if you can get some for your pet rat… if it’s the right kind of rat.  Will ketosis help me? Ketogenesis and ketosis are easy to study.

While college presidents have recently been the most vocal on the subject of underage drinking, most American youth start using alcohol well before moving on to college.  In Lake Forest/Lake Bluff, teens are no exception.  Based on a February 2008 survey, 77% of LFHS seniors have used alcohol in the past year, 60% reported alcohol use in the past 30 days, and 42% report binge drinking in the past 2 weeks.  Average age of first drink was 15 years of age, but over half of those who drink in high school indicated they started drinking before starting high school.  These levels are above the national, regional, and county averages, and it appears that other communities around the country similar in demographics to Lake Forest/Lake Bluff have higher levels, too.
