2. Studies on Diet and Epilepsy

The ketogenic diet is the most studied in relation to epilepsy. One study in Lancet Neural in 2008 showed a significant decrease in seizure activity in children fed a keto diet, compared to the control group. Seven percent of the subjects had more than a 90% reduction in seizures. Studies on the diet's impact on adults are small but promising. One indicates that more than half of participants had a 50% or greater reduction in seizures when eating a keto diet.
