We speculate that frail subjects who have lost a significant percentage of their body weight and have a low BMI may be more susceptible to protein malnourishment.


But the real issue is what happens to actual measures of heart disease, not just ornisg factors, which I will describe further on. These are the foods that are rich in good carbs, good fats, good proteins and other protective substances.

Also, as I wrote in my op—ed in The New York Timesmy colleagues and I have conducted randomized controlled trials that these same diet and lifestyle changes reverse the progression of other common chronic diseases. This is why I use the USDA data which tracks consumption of the entire food supply, not just a tiny sample.

Our study indicates that high levels of animal proteins, promoting increases in IGF-1 and possibly insulin, is one of the major promoters of mortality for people age 50—65 in the 18 years following the survey assessing protein intake.

Didta Feeling Better Now. Below is my letter to the editor of The New England Journal of Medicine that they published about this study:. These include a whole foods, plant-based diet low in refined carbohydrates, moderate exercise, stress management techniques and social support.

When people dutifully cut down on fat in the s and s, they replaced much of it with high-sugar and high-calorie processed foods think: That only supports my thesis, because I recommend that people eat less harmful fats and fewer refined xieta.

But replacing animal protein with well-balanced plant proteins is beneficial, and this is in the mainstream of what most scientists who do fieta research believe.
