A new study conducted at the University of Sydney and published in the journal Cell Reports is inspiring headlines around the world, like this one from The Guardian:

“Low-protein, high-carb diet may help ward off dementia.”

This, despite a growing body of clinical evidence suggesting that low-carbohydrate diets can be helpful for people with brain problems, including neurological, psychiatric, and cognitive disorders such as Alzheimer’s disease.

What is going on here? Should you pass on the meat and reach for the muffins instead? Read my article on Psychology Today to get the skinny on this latest high carbohydrate study.
