Yes of course, Dr. Greger's theories...

Hmm, let me think, we have 4 girls: they all reached puberty aged 13-14. Have you got children? What were their puberty age?

Best regards,

Hi Heretic,

Sugar is certainly part of the problem.

But to reduce it to "Carbohydrates, anyone?", to imply that complex carbs as in whole grains are part of the problem, or just carbs in any form, is not correct.

The Pritikin diet gets most of its calories from complex carbohydrates, yet cures all of the degenerative diseases that the SAD creates.

"The Problem" has more to do with excess calories from all sources (carbs, fat and protein), and inadequate nutrients (phytochemicals, antioxidants, vitamins, minerals), rather than a precise combination of carbs, fat and protein. That's what the science has been showing us, for the last 20 years.

Best regards, EngineerGuy
