Huge Diet Study Shows Carbs, Not Fats Are the Problem

An enormous prospective study of food intake in adults challenges several staunchly held beliefs about dietary components and their association with health risks: finding, for example that diets rich in fats, including saturated fats, don’t increase mortality risk, but high-carbohydrate diets do.

And the study, called PURE (Prospective Urban Rural Epidemiology), also found that the benefits of fruits, vegetables, and legumes top out at just three to four total servings per day. In sum, the results suggest that nutritional guidelines and conventional wisdom regarding these basic dietary elements may be seriously mistaken.

PURE investigators recorded food intake using questionnaires in 135,000 people in 18 countries, including high-, medium- and low-income nations. PURE found that high carbohydrate intake was associated with a significant increase in the risk of death, while both total fat and saturated and unsaturated fats were associated with a decreased risk of death. However, fat consumption was not associated with cardiovascular disease or cardiovascular mortality, though saturated fat had an inverse association with stroke.

The Foundation for Chiropractic Progress (F4CP) urges consumers to learn the opportunities to dispose of unused Rx drugs for the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) National Take-Back Day

This call-to-action supports initiatives during September Drug-Free Pain Management Awareness Month and emphasizes the goals to advance public awareness of the value of drug-free chiropractic care.

“We can’t be more supportive of this DEA program which complements our campaign to educate and inform Americans that there are non-pharmacologic options such as chiropractic care to safely and effectively address patients’ spine and joint-related pain,” says Sherry McAllister, DC, executive vice president, F4CP. “Every day, over 1,000 people are treated in emergency departments for misusing prescription opioids.”
