Disease-Causing Effects of High Carbohydrate Diets

Whilst evidence accumulates that high carbohydrate diets are associated with increased rates of obesity and diabetes, there is growing evidence that a range of other conditions including dementia and cancer may also have their origins in high carbohydrate diets. In this presentation I will present the scientific evidence as it currently is, linking high carbohydrate […]

Heart Disease Associated with Processed Carbohydrate Consumption

To clarify the role of dietary carbohydrate, glycemic index (GI), and glycemic load (GL) in progression from health to coronary heart disease (CHD) by determining disease-nutrient risk relation (RR) values needed for intake ranges within jurisdictions and across the globe. We performed a literature search of MEDLINE and EMBASE for prospective cohort studies that used […]

Saturated Fat, Carbohydrate, and Cardiovascular Disease

A focus of dietary recommendations for cardiovascular disease (CVD) prevention and treatment has been a reduction in saturated fat intake, primarily as a means of lowering LDL-cholesterol concentrations. However, the evidence that supports a reduction in saturated fat intake must be evaluated in the context of replacement by other macronutrients. Clinical trials that replaced saturated […]
