Well, just been watching on TV channel 7 in Australia nightly main news bulletin. Incredible!!

Report was about animal research done by a scientist in Sydney showing better heart health and diabetes outcomes with a low protein, low fat, and high carb diet!!

Mentioned this contradicts Atkins and 'cabbage' diets and researchers are 'pretty sure' results will translate into humans.

Will do some more research to find source of story but sounds like one of those poorly devised studies to me

Heaven help us, because the establishment sure won't!!

A quick google search tells me that this reporter and TV station are regurgitating something that was reported on other media in Australia in March 2014. Geez can't they find any new news to report.
However, as they say it was the result of a study of mice at Sydney University.

Woe is me!!

If I wanted to prove that flowers are fairies playing in your garden and freezing into stationary shapes to hide a person is near, I think could do so. And the news might blast the amazing breakthrough around the world.

But that wouldn't make it true.

...................

The sad part, I think, is knowing most people listen, partially ingest, and never seek to understand. The saddest part is science pretends to be unbiased ..... then decides fairies actually exist so how we prove they freeze when people are near?

Any report that does not clearly explain it's criteria, it's exclusions, it's methodology, and how the results were calculated - even if I really believe in said results - I do not trust that report.

Thanks for sharing!

Even if true, what are diabetics supposed to do?

Follow high carb and we get cvd + all the other fun stuff anyway.

Right?

Just read on the Sydney Uni site that they have a Diabetes Council of Australia sponsored Chair of Diabetes to study all about our problems and to find a cure.

Maybe they got some of those mice I read about elsewhere on our forum.

Eminent Professors following the party line?

Mickey? If you have links for these programs, please post them. It's hard enough to discuss these things when we're all on the same page. When the rest of us don't even HAVE the page, it's dang near impossible.

And if it's a mouse study, let it be. Studies on mice tell us exactly nothing.

And James? You just close your eyes to all this crap and continue following LCHF and eating to your meter, okay? It isn't true and it was NEVER true - the whole low-fat story was a lie and a hoax from the get-go.

This fact and the "new research" ... They just can't help themselves, huh? It's been a month and they haven't issued any propaganda lately. It really pisses me off. It makes me think of my brother, wondering if he gave up because he followed dr's advice and still couldn't get his BG under control. I think of all the people following this BS advice and killing themselves, so the wealthy can pad their pockets. It's just disgusting.

It makes me think of that movie scene where Charlton Heston yells, "Soylent Green is people!!"

"Animal research" with what animals? Cows? I agree about calling it a "poorly devised" study.
