Charles Washington recently blogged about an article with this title and how wrong it was.

http://blog.zeroinginonhealth.com/?p=1467

He commented that the article didn't give a link to the source document but using a search engine (Bing in this case) it wasn't hard to find.

This is the article he refered to:
http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/life ... 318006.cms

This is the source document that I found:
http://www.eurekalert.org/pub_releases/ ... 120909.php

It was repeated in a number of other publications:
http://www.scienceblog.com/cms/high-fat ... ce+Blog%29

The conclusion was:
Quote:
According to Dr Hunter, the challenge now is to find ways to make low-fat high-carbohydrate diets more palatable and easier to maintain, so that a long-term positive outcome is achieved.


This is the sponsor for that study:

Can't we sue these people for mis-information? Everyone in the world should get a share!

I wish this world would grow up, or atleast try.

"The best approach for your overall health is a low-fat high-carbohydrate diet, coupled with exercise."

Yea, lets eat nothing but sugar...

I wonder if government agencies weigh the issue of calories per acre of farmland when monitoring garbage studies like this. I'm suspicious that the world's population would be unsustainable with current farming practices if everyone suddenly switched to eating paleo.

The current system of farming in America would never work to feed the entire country paleo style. Too few companies trying to maximize production on plots of land that shouldn't be housed with all the animals they have on them....perhaps if they expanded the size of their farmlands vastly. Switching America to a paleo diet would NOT be a good idea at this point until there is more oversight of these big agriculture companies by unbiased sources.

But uhh...in response to that being founded by a sugar group...wow...doesn't surprise me one bit! The real enemy to America...delicious sugar!
