Low-carb diets make you sick

ANI The Times of India Wednesday, March 10, 2004

Washington - A long-time myth remains shattered. Thanks to
new research which reveals that low-carb dieters manage to
lose weight and show perceptible change in their levels of
cholesterol, blood sugars, and blood pressures, because they
are absolutely sickened by it.

In the current issue of Mayo Clinic Proceedings, John
McDougall, an advisory board member of Physicians Committee
for Responsible Medicine (PCRM), explains that low-carb
diets can throw people into a metabolic state called
ketosis, that also occurs during severe illness. This diet-
induced condition resembles the common side effects of
cancer chemotherapy with fatigue, nausea, and loss of
appetite for many people.

He further observes that people on low-carb diets who
become ill enough to experience loss of appetite are taking
in less fat and cholesterol, because they are consuming
less food overall.

Although the same mechanism results in cholesterol levels
falling in cancer patients, no doctor brags about weight
loss and lower cholesterol caused by the toxic drugs used in
chemotherapy.

Numerous studies reveal that many high-fat, low-
carbohydrate dieters risk clogged arteries, heart attack,
colon cancer, and kidney failure. Experiments also reveal
that even one fatty meal can increase the risk of a cardiac
event immediately following the meal.

"A better approach is to encourage people to eat foods that
promote both ideal body weight and health--those from a high-
complex carbohydrate, low-fat diet. You can see this for
yourself when you look at various populations worldwide,"
McDougall said.

People living mostly on high-carbohydrate rice and vegetable
dishes in Asia are trim throughout their lives with almost
no risk of heart disease, diabetes or our common cancers, he
went on to say.
