    The one-fifth of people consuming the most carbohydrates were 28% MORE likely to die during a 7.4 year follow-up compared to the one-fifth consuming the least according to the PURE study which followed 135,335 people, 35-70 years-old from 18 countries from 5 continents for a median follow-up of 7.4 years.


    Our findings do not support the current recommendation to limit total fat intake to less than 30% of energy and saturated fat intake to less than 10% of energy,” the authors of the study concluded.
