Carb-Rich Diets Increase Risks of Breast

Carbohydrates have been taking a beating for their putative
effect on the waistline in recent years due to the surge of
low-carb diets such as the Atkins diet.. Now they’re coming
under fire for potentially putting women at an increased risk
of breast cancer.

A study of 1,866 Mexican women has found that those who
obtained more than 62 percent of their calories from carbs
were more than twice as likely to develop breast cancer
compared to women whose carb intake accounted for 52 percent
or less of their diet. “The main carbohydrates these women ate
were …

    A Calorie Is A Calorie?

    Study: All Calories Are Not Created
    Equal. Low-Carbohydrate Diets Have Metabolic Edge

    Scientists may be close to finding out why low-carb diets, such as the Atkins diet, are more effective than low-calorie diets. In a paper published last week in the Nutrition Journal,
    researchers from SUNY Downstate Medical Center show that
    low-carbohydrate, high-protein diets can be expected to be
    more effective for weight loss than low-fat diets. Their
    supposition goes against long standing prejudices of the
    nutritional community which for years have claimed that only
    calories count in the battle to lose weight.”There are
    numerous examples of low-carbohydrate diets being more
    effective than low-fat diets with the same number of calories. continue…

    Atkins Diet Vindicated

    April 17, 2003, A year after science proved him right, Dr.
    Robert C. Atkins passes away

    Dr. Atkins endured ridicule since the 70’s, when he first
    published Dr. Atkins Diet Revolution.  This lone cardiologist
    stood up against the medical establishment by warning us of
    the dangers of sugar and carbs. He was called unflattering
    names by his peers and brought up before a senate committee,
    but nothing deterred him. Thirty years later, he was proven
    right. The only consolation to those who love him is that he
    passed away having had the last laugh, saying “I told you
    so.”  Paying our respects..


    May 21, 2003, Two new studies published in the
    New England Journal of Medicine

    NEW ORLEANS (AP) A month after Dr. Robert C.
    Atkins’ death, his much-ridiculed diet has received its most powerful
    scientific support yet: Two studies in one of medicine’s most
    distinguished journals show it really does help people lose weight
    faster without raising their cholesterol.

    The research, in Thursday’s New England Journal of
    Medicine, found that people on the high-protein, high-fat,
    low-carbohydrate Atkins diet lose twice as much weight over six months
    as those on the standard low-fat diet recommended by most major health
    organizations. continue…

    Is it just possible Dr. Robert Atkins was right?
    That his high-fat, low-carb plan, ridiculed for 30 years as dangerous
    nonsense, actually is a good, safe way to lose weight? The dietary
    elite are not ready to change their collective mind, but a half-dozen
    or so new studies have taken an objective look at the presumed evils of
    Atkins, , and the results have been little short of astonishing: people
    on the Atkins diet lose more… continue…
