The Yomiuri Shimbun recently reported that a study linked low-carb intake with a heightened chance to develop heart disease.
Harvard University provided academics to research on the project, and found that after examining more than 1,200 major cardiovascular cases and splitting them into 10 different stages, the frequency of the disease rose by 4 percent at each stage, the news source explained.
As the level of carbohydrates a person consumed declined, the level of protein rose, the study found, according to the paper. Increasing protein levels typically provides a person with more saturated fats and cholesterol.
"It's notable research, because the long-term effects of low-carbohydrate weight control diets on health has received little verification," Mitsuhiko Noda, director of the diabetes research department at the Research Institute, National Center for Global Health and Medicine, told the news source.
If a person wants to learn more about cutting major health risks such as heart disease, speaking with a professional may help them find the correct regimen to live by. If paying for healthcare is a problem, looking for policies with affordable health insurance rates may be a good idea.
