Lancet Study Highlights a Lower Carbohydrate, High Fat Diet May Support Health
The Lancet published research based on a large cohort from multiple countries that looked at associations between macronutrient intake and cardiovascular events, including fatalities, which can be viewed here. It was found that higher carbohydrate intake was “associated with higher risk of total mortality”, whereas that was not associated with cardiovascular disease events or fatalities.
Importantly it was stated that “dietary guidelines should be reconsidered in light of these findings”. BANT picked up on this paper, their response calling for dietary guideline change can be viewed here.
