BULLSH*T ALERT: Low-carb diets - some dangerous truths uncovered

Okay I just came across a lovely article on *gasp* the dangers of low carb fad diets. And to think, here I was thinking this previous article on ketosis was bad...

Now according to Vee Jefferson, a registered nurse with more than 10 years experience, low carb diets like Atkins are very dangerous. She has read many articles on why low carbohydrate diets are bad, which according to her, do not specifically explain why. As a result, she decided to enlighten us on why this is so...

Well not only that, she though she would "tear down low-carb dieting" *wink*

Check it out here but please make sure you are sitting down first with a candy bar on hand as those low blood sugar and potassium levels you have from being in ketosis, may kill you...

In the future, before spouting such nonsense on low carbohydrate diets she should look at the numerous low carbohydrate and ketogenic research that is coming out now, some of which we have listed here: Research on Low Carbohydrate Diets

She is a disgrace to nursing!!!

To confuse benign dietary ketosis with diabetic ketoacidosis for any health "expert" is a sin....but for a RN to make that mistake? I hope to never run into her as a patient!!
