Sunday, November 10


I was waiting to get a fuller story on this, but as I haven't found it yet, I'll post what is known so far: An otherwise healthy 16-year-old girl collapsed and died after two weeks on a meat-rich low-carb diet. Her doctors expressly blamed the electrolyte imbalance caused by the diet itself and ruled out possibilities such as an eating disorder. I dunno, maybe they're wrong. Maybe some other factor is going to emerge. But it's gotta make ya wonder.
