Mr I's next 'Topic for Discussion'


Research from Saint Louis University finds that high fat or "ketogenic" diets could completely prevent, or even reverse heart failure caused by a metabolic process. Results suggest that such diets do not enhance cardiac ketone body metabolism, but rather stimulates fatty acid oxidation, which may be responsible for the improved cardiac remodelling. Join Mr I to discuss this plus other news stories!
