The PURE diet study | The Body of Evidence

The PURE diet study

Our new podcast comes out this week. One of the subjects we discussed was the PURE study which was published during the European Society of Cardiology meeting.

We were going to talk about the DETO2X-AMI study http://www.nejm.org/doi/full/10.1056/NEJMoa1706222#t=article that was also published at the ESC but we took a short detour to talk about PURE.

The PURE study purported to show that high fat diets were protective, at least that's what the headlines said. The reality was more complicated and a little more nuanced.

Make sure you listen in but if you want a background on the study you can read this from the Nutrition Wonk blogĀ http://www.thenutritionwonk.com/single-post/2017/08/29/The-5-Continent-P...
