Interesting article... vegetarians win again!

"In a 20-year study involving over 82,000 women, the incidence of coronary heart disease was roughly equal for women who ate low- and high-carbohydrate diets, researchers reported in the Nov. 9 New England Journal of Medicine.

Heart risk was also 30 percent lower for participants who got their protein and fat from vegetables rather than from meat, they noted.

The Atkins diet, which became popular after its introduction in the 1970s, allows for unlimited intake of animal fat."

Yay for veggies!
