High carbohydrate consumption may be harmful, research suggests
Reuters (8/29, Seaman) reports that research suggests “global dietary guidelines should possibly be changed to allow people to consume somewhat more fats, to cut back on carbohydrates and in some cases to slightly scale back on fruits and vegetables.”
TIME (8/29, Park) reports that investigators found that “people eating high quantities of carbohydrates…had a nearly 30% higher risk of dying during the study than people eating a low-carb diet.” Meanwhile, individuals “eating high-fat diets had a 23% lower chance of dying during the study’s seven years of follow-up compared to people who ate less fat.”
MedPage Today (8/29, Husten) reports that the study “also found that the benefits of fruits, vegetables, and legumes top out at just three to four total servings per day.”
Medscape (8/29, Hughes) reports that the research was presented at the European Society of Cardiology 2017 Congress and was “published as two separate papers in The Lancet – one on the fat and carbohydrate outcome data and one on fruit/vegetables/legumes outcome data.” An additional “paper in Lancet Diabetes and Endocrinology focuses on effects of the different dietary patterns on lipid levels and blood pressure.”
