Consuming more whole grains is associated with a significant reduction in both total and CVD mortality in American men and women.
If the high-GI and low-GI diets differ significantly in salt, potassium, magnesium, fiber, saturated fat, and cholesterol content, then it may be those variables, rather than GI per se, that are the true causal factor.
General recommendations from the ADA are to attain an A1C of less than 7%, but this is not the appropriate goal for everyone with diabetes. Like medications, diet, and physical activity, blood glucose goals must also be individualized. For some people with diabetes, an A1C of less than 6.5% is ideal, and for others a good goal is less than 8% or even 8.5%, according to a 2012 consensus report in the Journal of the American Geriatrics Society and Diabetes Care.
Biologists have long known that the bacteria, protozoa, fungi, yeast, and other microbes that inhabit the guts of all animals can play a key role in their ability to survive.
Bazzano and Hus study does not provide convincing evidence that replacing whole grains, fruits, and beans with fatty animal products high in saturated fat and cholesterol won't promote atherosclerosis and more CVD in the long term.
The experience from England seriously undermines Dr. Oparil's editorial claim that the PURE study results ... call into question the feasibility and usefulness of dietary sodium as a population-based strategy for reducing blood pressure. This makes me wonder why none of the science writers and journalists who were so quick to parrot Dr. Oparil's opinions ever thought to ask why she believed the questionable data and opinions from the PURE researchers were not largely refuted by the real-life public health efforts ongoing in England.
The claims being made by the authors of the two PURE articles are troubling because the preponderance of credible scientific data continues to show that elevated BP is the single greatest CVD risk factor in most populations. Data from controlled clinical trials show that dietary salt in excess of 1,500 mg/day is the #1 dietary cause of elevated BP.
Why has Congress decided to expose Dr. Oz as a promoter of numerous questionable supplements? Could it be because there really is little that the Food & Drug Administration (FDA) & Federal Trade Commission (FTC) can do to prevent the promotion of questionable products? Why can't these regulatory agencies stop the promotion of these products by Dr. Oz and similar personalities?
