"The art of the alarmist food documentary"

The Magic Pill, a new documentary on Netflix, argues that a ketogenic diet—a way of eating that is very high in fat and very low in carbohydrates—is the healthiest and best way to eat. It strongly implies that eating like this can cure cancer and vastly improve autism in a way that is outrageous—if not breathtakingly reckless.
