    Dr Oz Show - Carbs cause Alzheimer's

    Primal Fuel
    In case nobody posted this...

    Even mainstream knuckleheads like Dr Oz seem to be realizing carbs cause diabetes, heart disease, and now Alzheimer's. Raises blood sugar, gives you diabetes, rots your brain.

    This is a pet peeve of mine too.

    TOO MANY SIGGABLE POSTS TODAY!
    Disclaimer: I eat 'meat and vegetables' ala Primal, although I don't agree with the carb curve. I like Perfect Health Diet and WAPF Lactofermentation a lot.

    That is absolutely ridiculous... I was "keto-adapted" and let me tell you it freaking sucked. I train hard 3-5 hours a week and I am on my feet climbing ladders, carrying heavy tools, walking, standing etc for 9-10 hours a day. I need a minimum of 80g of carbs to not feel lethargic and sometimes I have 150grams. I feel much better, if my daily or bi-daily sweet potato is going to give me Alzheimer's then so be it.

    Oz gives lot of air play to rubbish ideas if it brings in viewers. He even brought in Gary taubes and his quack theories because it brought "controversy" and interest. He brings in them all and he makes it entertaining for the general viewer.
    "Carbs" causing diabetes and alziemiers and heart disease is almost comical. Especially when people have been able to reverse diabetes and heart disease on diets that are almost entirely based on carbs.

    I mean there's so many ants in my eyes! And there are so many TVs, microwaves, radios... I think, I can't, I'm not 100% sure what we have here in stock.. I don't know because I can't see anything! Our prices, I hope, aren't too low!

    Type II yes. Improving insulin sensitivity and coming of medications has been reported for decades on low fat high carb dating back to Pritikins early studies.

    We are still watching shows from 2010/11, so that means that anything interesting will not come up in another few year? DANG!!!
