Latest Low-Carb Study: All Politics, No Science

The only evidence to be found in this research is evidence of bias.- Georgia Ede, MD

"Recently, the journal Lancet Public Health published a study conducted by researchers at Harvard University and the University of Minnesota warning people that low-carbohydrate diets can cause early death. The paper, entitled “Dietary carbohydrate intake and mortality: a prospective cohort study and meta-analysis” has enjoyed broad media coverage and ignited passionate debate in nutrition circles around the world."

Here are some more headlines from the study in case you actually believe the mainstream media's take on this flawed study.

"Ludicrous methods", "missing data", "Low-carb diets were not studied", "no substitutions", "no explanations"

"These researchers did not conduct a study of low-carbohydrate diets. They dug up some old "data" from epidemiological studies of heart disease, desperately picked through the rubble looking for anything they could find that might support their dying hypothesis, and then repackaged their observations for public consumption.

Don’t be afraid of this paper tiger. There is no evidence of any kind in this study that low-carbohydrate diets—whether they include meat or not—will have you pushing up daisies any sooner than anyone else."
