That's actually quite impressive. If I were to write an article from the perspective of giving the complete opposite of what the truth was in almost every line, it would be that article right there.
It's frightening to think how many people will read this and believe it and then adapt their diets to be more in line with this awful advice. The power of the press...

Well i dont know about you guys, but im convinced.
Especially the bit about carbs controlling blood sugar and diebetes. Makes so much sense.
@Linsben - the article says that resistant starches do that. Resistant starches are a class of dietary fiber, and the way it does that is by delaying the digestion of other foods. Hence, you feel full (slightly) longer, and sugars take more time to get to your gut where they can be absorbed, which means that the food you just ate has a lower effect on blood sugar. But I'd rather avoid high glycemic-index foods than eat them and then supplement with loads of fiber.
EDIT: unless you're being sarcastic, but you haven't posted enough for me to figure that out.

Ya that was sarcasm.
"Instead of eating white rice, switch to brown and combine it with beans, corn, or other high Resistant Starch foods that keep your blood sugar more balanced than low-carb diets"
I wouldnt eat any of that and i think my blood sugar is balanced just fine without it.
Is this a parody?
This is murder
"Carbs control blood sugar and diabetes
The right mix of carbs is the best way to control blood sugar and keep diabetes at bay. In one study at the Beltsville Human Nutrition Center at the USDA, participants who consumed a diet rich in high Resistant Starch foods were able to lower their post-meal blood sugar and insulin response by up to 38%."
