I have read all the posts in:
"Diabetes Treatments of Yesteryear"
"Rant-Argumentative Lot, Aren't We"
"Data on Negative Outcomes of High Protein, Low Carb Diets"
All totaled there were over 300 posts in those three threads.
There were a lot of name calling, accusations, finger pointing and
rudeness in the posts attached to those three threads. I even made some
uncalled remarks myself, for which I now apologize.
There were even a number of anecdotal accounts of how well some were doing
on a low-carb diet after several years. (I smoked many years before I had
to have my voice box removed because of the cancer smoking caused.)
Anecdotal accounts mean very little. The only thing they prove, if
anything, is everyone is different.
When you smoke, you are constantly "irritating" certain body parts - that
can be any part from your lips to your anus. Smokers can get can of lips,
throat, bladder etc and never see lung cancer. Anyway, that is simplistic.
When you low carb you instead, restrict certain foods. Tell me how eating
the recommended amount of protein per day in the form of lean meats, oily
(omega 3) fish plus a large amount of nutritionally rich vegetables plus
other foods deemed by professionals to promote good cardio vascular health
(almonds, walnuts, olives/olive oil, avocados etc) can actually cause even
minor problems to a body? How much of the world's population eat some kind
of junk everyday? How many eat craploads of highly nutritious veggies? Hell,
there are campaigns world-wide trying to make people eat even a total of 5
fruits and veggies a day let alone lots more.
You are barking up the wrong tree. People who lower their carbs add back
much more with respect to good nutrition than those who eat lots of grains
and other starches every day. Comparing nutrients, I bet low and lower
carbers get more nutrition, much more than their starch eating counterparts,
in a day.
