But did you know they can also be good for your brain??
New research has shown the Ketogenic diet (as similar low carb, high protein diet) has shown signs of helping fight the symptoms of depression and even

That was quick!
During their coverage at the Golden Globes 2014, E! was putting up 'Fun Facts' on the screen to entertain the masses — that is until they put one up about Michael J. Fox!
The Fun Fact was that Michael was diagnosed Parkinson's in 1991 (above).
Not cool, and people TOTALLY noticed! Twitter blew up, and now E! has already apologized!
Here's what they said:

We can't imagine how hard it is to live with Parkinson's and how much strength it takes to deal with the situation — especially when it interferes with the biggest love of your life, along with all the little things you might have been taking for granted.
Linda Ronstadt has won 11 Grammys, and she can no longer sing because of her Parkinson's. She's also has to have assistance with daily activities and it's just

Billy Connolly, who was in Muppet Treasure Island (and Brave) and is loved by everyone who meets him, dropped double bad news on us today — things we wish weren't true and a part of real life: he has had prostate cancer surgery, and has been diagnosed with Parkinson's disease.
Cancer is NEVER good news, but at least the surgery was a complete success and he's now fully recovered from it!
Here's what his spokesperson said:

Linda Ronstadt is no longer able to sing.
We'll let that sink in for a moment, because that would be devastating for someone who has made their life all about singing. She's best known for songs You're No Good and When Will I Be Loved, and she just revealed her diagnosis and battle with Parkinson's to AARP.
She was having problems with her voice when she sought the medical advice but now, this is what she said:

We're pretty sure there isn't a more decent human being in Hollywood than Michael J. Fox.
Everyone was heartbroken with his Parkinson's diagnosis years ago when he announced it, because it wasn't actually a very publicized disease before he got it. We all reacted like it was a death sentence and that it was the saddest thing ever.
We were wrong!
Michael is not only thriving and surviving, but he helps fund Parkinson's research, all the while never really disappearing from the public eye! He has stayed humble about it, and now we're finding out that he even laughs about it, as he doesn't ever want the disease to define him!
