Now how could I have misread that!!  Lol.  I was in rather a hurry as we had an appointment this morning. 

I just looked up the Cambridge diet and thought it was far too expensive.

Anne, good point about what they call "low carb".
Quote
The authors of the ‘study’ write in the discussion section: "This study represents observational data and is not a clinical trial; however, randomised trials of low carbohydrate diets on mortality are not practical because of the long duration of study required. Another limitation of this study is that diet was only assessed at two time intervals, spanning a 6-year period, and dietary patterns could change during 25 years."
In other words they can't prove anything.

There’s a ‘study’ reported in the press today which is saying roughly the same but if you look at the data in the Lancet you’ll see that the people weren’t on a low carb diet at all, the population characteristics of those in the lowest carb quantile were still getting median 37% of their energy from carbs - not what we’d call low carb anyway: https://www.thelancet.com/journals/lanpub/article/PIIS2468-2667(18)30135-X/fulltext
