A study of 44,000 Swedish women who ate a diet low in carbohydrates and high in protein increased their risk of heart disease. The study, recently published in the British Medical Journal, showed that for every 10% decrease in carbohydrate intake or 10% increase in protein intake their risk of heart disease increased 5%. The women were followed for about 16 years. Click here to read more about this study at PCRM's web site.
