Cardiovascular disease remains the leading cause of death in patients with diabetes. Which diet protects from Heart Attack? In years past the American Heart Association glorified Sugary Cereals with their (paid) check mark of approval. They stopped doing that and in their latest Scientific Statement they now list Low-Carb and Very-Low-Carb as viable options to improve heart health and protect from a heart attack.

This is largely at odds which has been put forth for decades by the AHA, NIH and the American Diabetes Association.
