It also says that eating red meat can lead to depression. Interesting...

Did it also say that reading such articles causes depression?

Actually, the article lost me when I read: "carbohydrates are essential to the human body as a source of glucose."

If that is true, then the Inuit badly need lots of public hospitals to treat them for an epidemic of severe carbohydrate deficiency.

Cracking up at all the comments!

All the Italians I saw in Italy a couple of years back looked extremely happy to me and they are eating loads of pasta in all shapes and sizes and forms, that and half cold pizza everywhere for fast food.

Carbs make me very happy. The problem is I love them too much. In fact if I was told to choose which way to eat for the rest of my life either meat-fat-veggies or low fat, carbs-veggies I would definitely pick the carbs. That's why protein diet is so effective for me haha.

That's an interesting article. It's like they want to say, Dr. Atkins was right, but without saying it. Sounded like they were walking some kind of line there.. Don't want to admit they've been totally wrong all this time, just kinda wrong..

The people who shoved this hi-carb low-fat diet on us 30 years ago apparently spent little time thinking about the long term effects of it, such as how the diet might affect other areas of health besides heart disease.

I recall that Phil Handler, the president of the National Academy of Science asked ''What right has the federal government to propose that the American people conduct a vast nutritional experiment, with themselves as subjects, on the strength of so very little evidence that it will do them any good?''

Anybody here remember when we gave up that dangerous butter for healthy high trans-fat margarine. Yea, right.

I am soo sorry I only realized how rude I was after I went back and reread the thread. Truth is I actually loved this thread and the findings are encouraging to us low carbers, so thank you for helping keep us informed! I was just being a smart mouth about loving my carbs. And got a little to post happy.

A 12-year study using research from 43,000 participants gets my attention...I would say they have made a definite correlation. Makes perfect sense, knowing what we know about what carbs, especially pasta-type, do to our bodies.

This research just makes me sooo thankful to be following a LCHF woe....

Interesting article. I am reading "Grain Brain" and I am becoming more and more convinced that there is overwhelming evidence for the carb/inflammation/disease connection. I think the problem will become that people hear so many conflicting things, it becomes like the "silver bullet" of the moment and they just tune out.

YES! One of my hot buttons. People probably did so much damage to themselves following this advice, it's not even funny.

Another thing that gets me is the fake eggs. Like eating manufactured food is better than a complete natural food. Sheesh.

This is definitely an interesting article. Thanks for posting!

Not sure if I agree since it seems like everytime you turn around some food is being labelled as "good", "bad" or carcinogenic. It's hard to tell fact from fiction.

i know in my case- eating carbs ( especially processed wheat-based carbs such as pasta) does make my depression harder to manage. BUT my family has a distinct correlation here. We ALL react in varying degrees and have a strong history of depression, ADD and diabetes. Not ALL people will react this way- as usual it's a case of YMMV.

The only depression I suffer from post-pasta is the empty bowl no more pasta depression. That can usually be cured by some sourdough bread however.
