  1. 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.
