Thomas was a 59-year-old man (left) with high blood pressure and high cholesterol when he received news that his 28-year-old daughter Alina had a massive brain tumour with an average survival time of 12 months. He decided to take up a Keto diet with Alina because the diet had given hope for some cancers. This is because cancer feeds off glucose but does not use ketones. After 2 years of holding on, Alina pushed through her initial diagnosis and survived cancer!
