SUBJECT: Atkins diet is dead wrong; eat a high carb low protein diet for longer life- and healthspan

Happy spring, enjoy something sweet! From a recent Science issue, 7 March 2014 page 1068, vol 343, "A new theory about the foods that can extend life is taking shape, and it's sure to be a controversial one. Two studies out this week, one in mice and another primarily in people, suggest that eating relatively little protein and lots of carbohydrates—the opposite of what's urged by many human diet plans, including the popular Atkins Diet—extends life and fortifies health.The research challenges other common wisdom, too. The authors of both studies believe that calorie restriction, a drastic diet that helps mice and other species live much longer than normal, may work not because it slashes calorie intake, but mostly because it cuts down on protein. "
