Researchers decry crap "study" warning of low-carb diet risks
 
Advocates of low-carbohydrate diet are voicing concern about a recent
paper that suggested the diet could cause weight gain, contrary to
previous research. One expert has even called for its retraction.

The study, published in Nutrition & Diabetes in February, also found
that the low-carb diet did little to prevent the progression of type 2
diabetes. Researchers have since criticized the study for drawing these
conclusions based on data from a handful of mice, using a poor proxy for
the human version of the diet.

We have many studies already done with humans, so why would anyone pay
much attention to one done with some mice?

No one who knows that mice are evolved herbivores would pay attention.

Depends on how you cook them.
