Junkscience: Top Ten "Most Embarrassing Moments" of 2004
Whoops: "10. University of Arkansas researchers attacked the Atkins Diet in January with a report linking a high-carbohydrate diet with weight loss, saying it was possible to lose weight without cutting calories and without exercising. What they didn’t reveal, however, was that the study subjects who lost weight actually ate 400-600 calories per day less than those who didn’t lose weight." I don't see the big deal behind number 6.

Up to 35 million
Americans are on a low-carb diet. Food manufacturers have responded with more than 600
new low-carb products this year. Restaurants are altering their menus. Online communities
are springing up to share information about the low-carb lifestyle. With this big target market, how hard will corporations push to expand the low-carb movement? Do the health warnings
about the diet foretell an increase in medical problems, or will we see a generation of healthy, slender, pork-rind chomping families?
