My Dad sent me a link to this BBC article, I'd imagine from being worried about how I eat:
It's all a bit vague (Which researchers? Which independent experts? How much and what kind of fat was involved in the low carb high protein diet? What's the standard mouse feed?), and I was kinda taking it seriously up until "We know that foods such as red meat and diary products, which are high in protein, also contain high levels of saturated fat. These fats then cause the build up in the arteries."
So the article's implying that the saturated fat is clogging arteries, but by "atherosclerosis" (plaque build up) rather than the usual suspect cholesterol. I don't remember hearing atherosclerosis being discussed here or on other low carb sites. However there's not enough detail about the results of the study to prove that it was the saturated fat that caused it.
I'm obviously skeptical, what are people's thoughts?
