High-protein diet linked to heart failure in older women

A low-carbohydrate, high-protein diet may increase the risk for cardiovascular disease, according to a large study in Swedish women. The study, published in the journal BMJ, was based on a random sample of 43,396 women ages 30 to 49, each of whom completed a dietary questionnaire. The researchers used the data to create a 20-point scale, with higher scores indicating a lower ratio of carbohydrates to protein.
