“Diet Study Suggests It’s Carbs, Not Fats, That Are Bad for You,” by Dennis Thompson, HealthDay
“A large, 18-country study may turn current nutritional thinking on its head. The new research suggests that it’s not the fat in your diet that’s raising your risk of premature death, it’s too many carbohydrates — especially the refined, processed kinds of carbs — that may be the real killer. The research also found that eating fruits, vegetables and legumes can lower your risk of dying prematurely. But three or four servings a day seemed to be plenty. Any additional servings didn’t appear to provide more benefit.”
LTC Comment (from Stephen A. Moses, President, Center for Long-Term Care Reform):
Pizza, please. Hold the crust.
