One type of specialized immune cell targets and tells other individual infected cells inside our body to attack the foreign invaders that have made their way inside of the cell. It’s called gamma interferon. ￼
Why? When our cells have been invaded by viruses there’s inflammation. In order for our cell to survive and avoid self-destruction, it needs glucose.￼ And our bodies make glucose from the food we eat.
When there’s bacteria rampant outside of our cells, eating food prevents us from becoming ketogenic. But being ketogenic protects us from the dangerous compounds produced from the stress of anti-bacterial inflammation.
