PURE (Prospec­tive Ur­ban and Ru­ral Epi­demi­o­log­i­cal study) is a huge in­ter­na­tional group that has stud­ied the di­etary habits of peo­ple, across so­cio-eco­nomic groups, in 25 coun­tries. Re­cent find­ings based on 135 000 peo­ple in 18 coun­tries, which were pub­lished in The Lancet, deemed the world’s lead­ing in­de­pen­dent med­i­cal jour­nal, sug­gest that LCHF is the way to go. Af­ter track­ing the par­tic­i­pants’ health for over seven years it found that: high carb in­take was as­so­ciated with a higher risk of early death and eat­ing fat was re­lated to a lower risk of early death. ‘Global di­etary guide­lines should be re­con­sid­ered in light of these find­ings,’ say the re­searchers.
