Hemingway concludes: "Three to 6 years after initiation, the ketogenic diet had proven to be effective in the control of difficult-to-control seizures in children. The diet often allows decrease or discontinuation of medication. It is more effective than many of the newer anticonvulsants and is well-tolerated when it is effective".

Recipe of the day
Beef Shanks with Carrots and Celery
|Food Mall: Beef|
1 sweet yellow onion
3-4 stalks of celery
Extra virgin olive oil
Add 1 or 2 tablespoons of olive oil to pressure cooker over medium heat. Season all sides of beef shanks with salt, garlic powder, paprika, and black pepper to taste. Arrange shanks in pot and brown first side 4 minutes. Turn shanks and brown second side 4 minutes. Remove from pot to a plate. Chop onion and celery into bite-sized pieces. Add to pot and cook several minutes until soft, scraping up brown bits from the bottom of the pot. Return shanks to pressure cooker. Add a generous splash or two of balsamic vinegar and one cup of water. Lock top on pressure cooker. Increase heat to high. After achieving high pressure, reduce heat to the lowest level consistent with maintaining high pressure. Cook under high pressure for 20 minutes. Turn off heat, bring pressure down quickly with the fast-release method, and remove top. Add carrots, salt, garlic powder, and ground cumin to taste. I like a nice dusting of each. Lock top on pressure cooker. Increase heat to high. After achieving high pressure, reduce heat to the lowest level consistent with maintaining high pressure. Cook under high pressure for 5 minutes. Turn off heat, allow pressure to come down naturally, and remove top. Use a slotted spoon or ladle to transfer beef shanks and vegetables to plates. Enjoy!
