I’ve had a short Editorial published (2021) in the journal Expert Review of Neurotherapeutics that can be accessed here: “The therapeutic potential of ketone bodies in Parkinson’s disease”. It is intended for a scientific readership, however much should be accessible to a general reader. The message is in the title. Essentially, there are reasons to expect that ketones may increase energy availability and be neuroprotective.
