How Pure is PURE? Dietary Lessons Learned and Not Learned From the PURE Trials

The findings of the PURE trial are eye-opening with respect to the nutritional concerns that are likely different in areas of poverty. These trials have largely compared many differences and can therefore only guide us on relative, not absolute, dangers or benefits of nutritional components. Consistent with several recent publications indicating higher mortality with refined grains and sugar, this study demonstrates that consuming highly refined carbohydrate-laden diets exceeded the mortality rate associated with eating fat. This is not a call to increase fat consumption, but to decrease consumption of low fiber, low-quality, high-sugar items, to which so many Americans subscribe daily, and which people in countries of lower economic status use for sustenance.
