It kind of seems like the brain needs to accept glucose, and part of this disease is preventing that. The cells die, and they can’t accept glucose anymore. “But there is an alternative fuel — ketones, which cells easily accept. Ketones are metabolized in the liver after you eat medium chain triglicerides, found in coconut oil.”

Yet another reason to cook with coconut oil! It is high in fat, but it is just the kind of fat your body needs.
