It should be no surprise that high protein, low carbohydrate diets more than doubles heart disease risk in women. (It doesn’t help men either). High fat diets are known for the diseases that result from eating animal proteins. Even the so-called lean proteins make you fat and sick. “Nutrition and Health in the United States,” published under the direction of Surgeon General C. Everett Koop MD in 1988 put to rest all controversy concerning whether or not diet is fundamental in the cause, prevention, and treatment of common diseases. “The Report’s main conclusion is that overconsumption of certain dietary components is now a major concern for Americans. While many foods are involved, chief among them is the disproportionate consumption of foods high in fats, often at the expense of foods high in complex carbohydrates and fiber that may be more conducive to health.” Similar recommendations to eat fewer animal products and more plants foods have been made by every other health organization, including the Senate Select Committee on Nutrition, American Heart Association, the American Cancer Society, The Diabetic Association, and the American Dietetic Association. They all believe, to one degree or another, that the chronic illnesses plaguing modern Western society are caused by an unhealthy diet and lifestyle, and that improved health comes from eating fewer animal products and a more plant food-based diet.
High Protein, Low Carbohydrate Diet Increases Heart Disease Risk In Women
NaturalNews, June 30 2012: Very few topics elicit more controversy and differing points of view than those pertaining to dietary ratios of carbohydrates, proteins and fats and how they pertain to optimal health. Nutrition science indicates that the answer to this dilemma is far from clear, and is most likely determined by individual body metabolism as predicated by evolved genetics and hereditary patterns. Yet, virtually all scientists would agree that highly processed and refined carbohydrates and excessive calories from animal protein contribute to chronic illnesses, especially cardiovascular disease in some at-risk individuals.
Researchers publishing in the British Medical Journal have determined that women who regularly eat a low carbohydrate, high protein diet are at greater risk of cardiovascular disease (such as heart disease and stroke) than those who do not. The study found that women consuming the highest amount of protein (from animal sources) coupled with low carbohydrates had a 28 percent increased risk of cardiovascular disease, an alarming statistic given the popularity of Atkins-based and other similar dietary programs in younger women.
According to Dr. John McDougall, high protein diets cause serious metabolic changes that lead to bone loss and kidney stones. The diseases believed to be caused by meats, egg, and dairy products include most cases of: obesity, heart diseases, adult diabetes, breast, colon, and prostate cancer, gallbladder disease, osteoporosis, kidney failure, kidney stones, multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis, constipation, diverticulosis, hemorrhoids, and hiatal hernia to name a few well studied diseases.
