Coconut fat - ketone precursor curing neural diseases

.

Cocos nucifera  (wiki)

Watch this CBN video

This is based on the same story I posted here, see also these posts. It goes beyond that story. In the second half they claim that the healing effect of coconut fat is due to its role as the ketone bodies precursor, in the liver. Ketone bodies being the alternative (to glucose) fuel for the neurons. They list the following neurological disease that can or might be treated by boosting ketone production:
  • Alzheimers
  • ALS
  • Epilepsy
  • Dementia
  • Schizophrenia
  • Autism
Ketone bodies appear to have a strong anti-viral effect, helping protect or fight against viral diesases.  (Is that why I never got a flu since 1999?)
