  9. Dr. Berry, recently Dr. William and let me quote "β€œThere was one (a study) in the Journal of the American Heart Association published a few years later that isolated the people who had a heart attack in the past, the cardiology population that we’re seeing, and they were doing a ketogenic diet,” Dr. Williams said. β€œIt was a 53 percent increase in mortality. No one should be doing this.” In effect, Dr. Williams former head of AHA discourages people to do keto diet. Please comment
