This Week in Low Carb News: Guess What Graham Crackers Were Invented For and Statins Don’t Work

Every week I come across a bunch of articles I want to tweet about and comment on and every week I run out of time to do it.  This is my attempt to clear out the open tabs on my browser by putting them all in one place.  Enjoy!

‘No evidence’ having high levels of bad cholesterol causes heart disease, claim 17 cardiologists as they call on doctors to ‘abandon’ statins – I love that The Daily Mail doesn’t care about short pithy headlines.  Just put all the words in the title, who cares!?  But this is a great look at how the word about statins is getting out!

The graham cracker was invented to stop you from masturbating – An old article but it just shows how crazy Vegans are and have been since the beginning of Veganism.

Carbs, Good for You? Fat Chance! – Here are the rules.  If Nina Teicholz writes something, I read and like it.  Nice takedown of the crazy idea that carbs are good for you.

Medicine’s Financial Contamination – Money corrupts everything and medical research is no different.  You need to be aware that no medical or dietary research comes from a vacuum.  And to put a finer point on it, don’t ever trust Nutritional studies coming out of Harvard or have anything to do with Walter Willett.

Daily aspirin may be harmful for healthy older adults, large study finds – Oh look, something else medical science has been wrong about for decades.

Gates Foundation Buys Cochrane Integrity for $1.15 Million: The Death of Scientific Integrity – Calling it the Death of Scientific Integrity might be a bit of an oversell but this is how money infects science.

Physical activity does not influence obesity risk: time to clarify the public health message – Again, a older article but it goes to the idea that eating less and moving more doesn’t work.

Here’s what’s going on inside your veins after you drink a soft drink – Soda makes you sick!  NO duh, right?  I would love to see something like this happen for diet sodas though.  I desperately want to know if my Coke Zero makes me produce insulin.

Low carb diet ‘should be first line of approach to tackle type 2 diabetes’ and prolong lifespan – YES!!  We need more articles like this!

Prevention of type 2 diabetes—success story that is waiting for next steps – Note, this is NOT from VirtaHealth.  This is a different study from Finland that shows the same results.
