The journal Nutrition just published a paper titled In The Face Of Contradictory Evidence: Report Of The Dietary Guidelines For Americans Committee. The authors are Adele Hite, MAT; Richard Feinman, PhD; Gabriel Guzman, PhD; Morton Satin, MSc; Pamela Schoenfeld, RD; and Richard Wood, PhD. It's long as hell but a great read. Link In particular, they found that the "science is inaccurately represented" for low carb diets and the "conclusions do not reflect quantity and/or quality of relevant science." They go over salt, saturated fat, glycemic load/index, fiber, salt, etc. Much of this won't be news to D&S regulars but it's always nice to have scientifically credible information to give out to interested people.
