    How does this study relate to what Peatarians are doing? We do eat meat, organic/grass fed, saturated fats and sugar in sucrose, fructose. I'm hoping for a logical, biological response so I can help questioners "get over it"!

    Could not find the whole article, but this site has more info than yahoo one.
    http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/news ... 37881.html
    One thing about this diet is 45 % fat vs 25% fat, this factor alone can
    lower metabolism instantly and cause whole host of problems,Randle cycle.
    I am assuming low fat group ate more carb than
    high fat. Higher carb increases thyroid hormone and metabolism .
    In yahoo news article they are blaming sugar but inside the article
    they mentioned that one group used white rice +bread and other group
    used whole grains. where is the sugar?
    Grain fed pork fat can have up to 30% PUFA.
    They did not show the breakdown of PUFA content, only Saturated fat.
    It is so tiring to read this kind of BS.
    They could have feed both group same amount of SFA vs PUFA or MUFA
    and then they could blame it on Saturated fat.
    Beef and pork have way more iron than chicken and fish.
    Iron plays a big role in Alzheimer'.
    You can not take this kind of science seriously.
