Here’s a great new site (well, new to me anyway). I intend to add it to the links list on my Website the next time my live-in, computer-techie husband updates it for me.
The Nutrition and Metabolism Society at http://www.nmsociety.org/ provides one-stop-shopping for news, information, and science about everything low carb. Their 2008 seminar in Phoenix starts tomorrow, so I’m sure we’ll be hearing more about that. Here’s a preview:
“This symposium will summarize and critically evaluate the evidence supporting the relationship between dietary saturated fat and heart disease.
The first set of speakers will review the scientific evidence regarding dietary saturated fats and heart disease, present new science regarding carbohydrate restriction and cardiac risk, and review the role of saturated fats for human function. These lectures will be of interest to people seeking the latest scientific information on the implementation of carbohydrate restriction in clinical practice.
The second set of speakers will present points of view bearing on clinical applications and themes from Gary Taubes’s controversial new book, Good Calories, Bad Calories. This will be followed by a panel discussion with Gary Taubes and the other speakers.”
Nutrition & Metabolism Society does provide good information for anyone interested in nutrition or their health in general.
I refer patients to it and refer to it on a regular basis.
