    Sorry I wasn’t clear about how I read it.

    They say support it and it is safe short term (implying it’s not long term perhaps) and later and separately state there isn’t evidence long term to judge, so belatedly more reasonably qualify their implied limitations.

    I do find it somewhere between amusing and astonishing that there is no evidence about low carb.
    William Banting published his little book on corpulence in the mid 1800, a hundred years later there was Dr Atkins - the only reason for 'no evidence' has to be that it has not been looked for or carefully rubbished and denied.

    Indeed. Especially when the “evidence” for low fat is so.........(insert descriptor of choice)

    Three million years of evolution without Corn Flakes is all the evidence I need.
