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 diets especially with a high content of cereals and grains, with a range of medical conditions. The evidence suggests that nutritional factors may play a much greater role in human ill-health than is currently appreciated or taught in our Institutions.
