Yet ANOTHER STUDY confirms the long-term UNhealthy consequences of animal-protein or animal-fats diets throughout one’s lifetime. STATISTICAL PROOF once again that KETO diets, HIGH-ANIMAL PROTEIN diets, and LOW CARBOHYDRATE diets can KILL YOU EARLIER, not to mention saddling you with one or more chronic diseases.

In short, this study, once again, confirms that if you stick with low carbohydrate eating programs, long enough, you may die sooner than you ought to. In the study referenced in the END NOTES, below, the term “mortality” is used instead of “kill you” or “death”, but it means the same thing.

With almost every study of the long-term consequences of chowing down on animal substances comes the warning of dangers. Certainly, people do get excited by the notion of eating all the tasty, delicious, foods they want and yet still lose weight. They falsely equate losing weight to becoming healthier. One can lose weight by eating certain foods all the while damaging his or her health.

Though Keto diets, Low-Carb diets, and High-Protein diets cause one to lose weight in the early stages, possibly even for the first few months, losing weight by restricting certain food types or by increasing exercise is nothing new. Almost any diet or exercise program will do that.

Ever since the mid-1800s the meat, dairy, fish, poultry industry has been excelling at animal-sourced product marketing by making clever use of only selective statistics, (reductionist data), to encourage followers to jump into weight loss programs which appeal to that evil larceny motive dormant within almost all of us. [“Larceny motive”: wanting something for free.]  The industry has been highly successful at convincing consumers to ingest more meat, fish, dairy and poultry.  And the results are showing…

In North America, and in countries experiencing a rise in economic standard of living, consumption rates of animal-source products are high or rising. That high, or rising, consumption has resulted in insanely high, or increasing, respectively,  rates of heart attacks, strokes, type-2 diabetes, arthritis, osteoporosis, kidney stones, and many other chronic diseases.

This study cited below does not reference any one particular disease from low-carb, high-protein, high-fat diets. Instead it considers deaths from any and all chronic diseases under the one banner, “mortality”.

Over 400 people participated in the study and they were old enough to be in “bifocal country”– [Dr. Garfat’s way of telling his patients they are getting older]. In other words, participants ranged in age from 45 to around 60 years old.

To make it plain and easy-to-grasp the key results of the study here it is in a nutshell: “Our findings…provide further evidence that animal-based low carbohydrate diets should be discouraged…[instead] predominantly plant-based fats and proteins could be considered as a long-term approach to promote healthy ageing.” See END NOTE 1

And, yes. PLANTS DO PROVIDE ADEQUATE AMOUNTS OF PROTEIN. The more you can evolve towards a vegan eating program, the healthier you may become, if it’s not too late for you.

We have another study cautioning us: …further evidence that animal-based low carbohydrate diets should be discouraged…
