Dr. Dominic D’Agostino is an Associate Professor in the Department of Molecular Pharmacology and Physiology at the University of South Florida Morsani College of Medicine. He is also a Research Scientist at the Institute for Human and Machine Cognition (IHMC).

The main focus of his lab over the last 10 years has been understanding the anticonvulsant and neuroprotective mechanism of the ketogenic diet and ketone metabolite supplementation. The shift in brain metabolism (from glucose to ketones) reduces neuronal hyperexcitability, oxidative stress and enhances brain metabolism. This approach can be used to treat a wide variety of pathologies linked pathophysiologically to metabolic dysregulation, including cancer.

The Origin (and Future) of the Ketogenic Diet

by Dr. Dominic D'Agostino and Travis Christofferson

This is for everybody who is interested how this way of eating came about and how it was used in the treatment of epilepsy in the early 20th century - and then, forgotten.

This book is a summary of Dr. Thomas Seyfried's book "Cancer as a Metabolic Disease" and comprises transcripts of his talks and interviews, as well as texts by his collegue Dr. Dominic D'Agostino and Travis Christofferson (whose foundation will be supported by this book).

Here the original Book description:

The book addresses controversies related to the origins of cancer and provides solutions to cancer management and prevention. It expands upon Otto Warburg's well-known theory that all cancer is a disease of energy metabolism. However, Warburg did not link his theory to the "hallmarks of cancer" and thus his theory was discredited.
