Epilepsy and seizures affect nearly 3 million Americans of all ages. While drugs work for some, others find them ineffective. What seems to work just as well, if not better, especially in children, is the ketogenic diet, a relatively unknown, high-fat diet. The author, John M. Freeman, M.D., one of the nation’s leading advocates for its use, writes about the evolution of the diet and its struggle for acceptance.
