Both Low-Carb & High-Carb Diets Raise Risk Of Early Death, Boston Study Finds
By Meera Senthilingam, CNN (CNN) — A low-carb or high-carb diet raises your risk of death, a new study suggests, with people eating the food staple in moderation seeing the greatest benefits to their health. Less than 40% or more than 70% of your energy — or calories — coming from carbohydrates was associated with the greatest risk of mortality. Eating moderate levels between that range offered the best options for a healthy lifespan. The lowest risk of an early death was seen where carbs made up 50-55% of a person’s diet, according to the study published Thursday. However, the definition of a low-c...

On one hand, it seems like an innovative solution to a major healthcare problem, as statistics show that up to 50% of U.S. adults do not take their medication as prescribed. But the practice also raises some valid concerns. "I think it can be part of an acute care adherence plan," Shital Mars, CEO of Prog...
