Eating Meat Doesn’t Cause Ketosis

Re: I stopped Keto because my kidneys hurt often. Have you ever heard of this?

Kidney damage is NOT caused by ketosis.

It’s caused by eating meat without enough fat, collagen, and/or carbs.


Ketosis is caused by …

1) eating fatty meat without carbs

2) calorie restriction (by vegans as well as omnivores)


Alfred Stengel, M.D., & D.L. Edsall, M.D. (“General Medicine,” The American Year-book of Medicine and Surgery, Vol. 10, 1905) wrote …

“M. Kochmann has studied in 3 dogs the effect of prolonged feeding with meat that was free from tendon, bone, and fat. The animals showed no disturbance of health except albuminuria [albumin in the urine]. Postmortem examination revealed marked lesions in the liver and the kidneys, the latter exhibiting cloudy swelling and even actual nephritis. The author believes that these changes are sufficient to interfere with the proper breaking-down of uric acid in the body to produce an excess of uric acid in the system, and so to lead to gout. The use of alcohol and intoxications with metals act in the same way. Animals that were given carbohydrate with their meat for the same length of time did not exhibit these changes. Kochmann thinks it possible that the meat-diet caused a chronic acid-intoxication.”


Eating meat without its fat over an extended period of time is counterproductive (to say the least).


The fat that protects against “acid-intoxication” could lead to acetonuria (excess urinary acetone from the oxidation of large amounts of fat).

“If the thunder don’t get you then the lightning will.”


Alfred Stengel, M.D., & D.L. Edsall, M.D. (according to the same source as above) wrote …

“T.R. Offer, in a study of acetonuria and its relation to diet, decides that it may be due not only to using fats and the varying amounts of fatty-acids contained in these fats, but also, in simple acetonuria resulting from abstaining from carbohydrates, to stagnation and tissue breakdown.”


It’s said by far too many “experts” that sugar causes cancer.

NO. But it can cause convulsions. (Glycerol is even worse.)

That’s why ketosis reverses epileptic convulsions.


Emanuel Revici, M.D. (Research In Physiopathology As Basis Of Guided Chemotherapy—With Special Application To Cancer, 1961) wrote …

“Glucose decreases intensity of pain of the alkaline pattern and increases pain of acid pattern. We were able to induce convulsions in rats by injecting 20 to 25 cc. of an isotonic solution of glucose subcutaneously twice daily. After 4 to 6 days, convulsions appeared and often led to death. In some terminal cancer patients with brain metastases, who had had previous convulsions, intravenous administration of glucose as a therapeutic procedure produced convulsions. We have even seen lethal convulsions in a patient after a few days of intravenous administration of glucose in saline solution in conjunction with intramuscular doses of 1 mg. twice daily of deoxycorticosterone.

“Although rarer than for glycerol, hemorrhages occurred after each glucose administration in some patients with previously bleeding ulcerated lesions. Bleeding stopped when glucose administration was discontinued. Renewed administration was followed each time by renewed bleeding. We want to emphasize this relationship of glucose to hemorrhage because of its clinical importance.”

    “Persistent or even cyclic albuminuria should cause anxiety, and indicate the advisability of further examination, extending over months, or even years. The mortality among persons with albuminuria, as indicated by the statistics of life-insurance companies, is extremely high.”–e-books.php

    Anything can cause anything, and anything can cure anything.

    David Riesman, M.D., & O.J. Kelly, M.D. (“Pathology and Bacteriology,” The American Year-book of Medicine and Surgery, Vol. 10, 1905) wrote …

    “E.P. Joslyn (Boston), in a series of experiments to determine the action of various fats on the formation and excretion of β-oxybutyric acid and its derivatives (diacetic acid and acetone), found: 1. That conclusions as to the relative action of the various fats, administered as neutral fats, fatty acids, or soaps, upon the elimination of acetone are of little value without proof of their absorption. 2. Neutral fats, whether of the higher or lower fatty acids, do not increase the elimination of acetone in a healthy individual during starvation for 2 days. The glycerin which such fats contain suffices to prevent the acetonuria. 3. Oleic acid produces a marked acetonuria amounting to 34% and 97% above the control experiments in the healthy starving subject, while the same quantity of butyric acid is without effect. The poor absorption of palmitic acid and stearic acids suffices to explain the negative results obtained in this and other experiments. 4. Sodium palmitate produces a marked acetonuria in the healthy starving subject. This cannot be explained by the presence of the alkali. 5. Butyric acid does not increase the acetonuria in the healthy fasting individual.”

    The average Joe reads a book about the health benefits of color.

    He reads that red light increases muscle strength.

    But what if Joe has a Red Trauma?

    What if he hasn’t CLEARED the color red in his own mind?

    In that case, the color red actually weakens him, and may or may not lead to health consequences.
