  • "Animal protein-rich diets could be as harmful to health as smoking"

    This article appeared in a major national UK newspaper The Guardian, today:

    Animal protein-rich diets could be as harmful to health as smoking | Science | The Guardian

    Doesn't seem to mention exactly what this animal protein is though!

    No direct rebuttal to be found, but I did find this:

    40 years of federal nutrition research fatally flawed

    I found it on this page:

    40 Years of Nutrition Research Fatally Flawed | THAT PALEO GUY

    In general, it looks like it's hard to derive the kind of conclusions that they seem to have when their underlying data is so flawed.

        The study looked to be observational.

        Correlation is not causation!
        My opinions and some justification

            High-protein diet 'bad as smoking'


            All very confusing

              Higher protein can be detrimental to long term health for several reasons. More studies need to be done in humans practicing methionine restriction. They already extend the life of some animals without a calorie deficit, so i'm hoping it is studied further.

                Here ya go

                Animal protein as bad as smoking?!

                Some shady stuff seemed to be going on with how they partition the subjects and report the data.....then I read this:

                Call me suspicious, but I always check for conflicts of interest and the lead researcher, Dr Longo, has declared interests in (actually, he’s the founder of) L-Nutra – a company that makes ProLon™ – an entirely plant based meal replacement product.

                Ahhh.....now it makes sense!

                        What irks me is the people in those studies received 51 percent of their calories from carbs. So I'd say that is a little unbalanced to begin with
