I am not your research nanny, I gave enough sources and resources already, ask your the bro-scientists who you seem to favor in such exchanges for their bro sources.
Dr Michael Greger wrote:What about the “cholesterol myth”?
I think the issue was best summarized in a medical journal editorial entitled Cholesterol Myth Club on Par with Flat Earth Society that read: “as mixed up as Flat Earth Society members obviously are, at least you can laugh their dumb idea off, and if you want to believe the Earth is flat, this view is not going to cause serious problems like… coronary artery disease.”
Again I am not your research nanny and you asked an impossible to answer question in the first place.
Most large populations that have been trim and free of the chronic diseases most Westerners are afflicted with today have consumed a majority of their calories from carbs.
How many large populations that have been trim and free of the chronic diseases most Westerners are afflicted with today have there been, and how many consumed a majority of their calories from carbs?

Find one old person who is in bad shape with lots of replacement parts and ignore that most of what Dan Buettner termed blue zones are full of centenarians who hardly consume any animal products.
Find one fat celebrity who for an amazing three years managed to lose weight in an unhealthy manner(constipation, bad breath, headaches) and ignore tens of millions of trim, healthier rice eaters in Asia who cannot afford to use an automobile or eat many animal products.
"I knew that both Anthony Colpo and Chris Masterjohn had done their own critiques of the original data, so I figured, what the hell, I’ll take a look at the ‘real’ China study (as opposed to the popular book of that name) and do one too. And I’ll critique the popular book, which I figured was a rehash of the China project, while I’m at it...
...Get some real data. I discovered later that I wasn’t the only one who wondered that. Even some of Dr. Campbell’s own colleagues abandoned him to this study and told him it would be worthless...
...In other words, the China study is an observational study comparing one variable to another (univariate correlations) and, as such, meaningless. And this from the man’s own pen...
In 1976 author Mary McCarthy famously said live on the Dick Cavett show of her rival Lillian Hellman: "Every word she writes is a lie, including ‘and’ and ‘the’." I feel much the same way about The China Study. Except it’s not really a lie, it’s an obfuscation.
In fact, in my studied opinion, The China Study is a masterpiece of obfuscation.
It is obfuscatory in so many ways it could truly qualify as a work of obfuscatory genius. It would be difficult for a mere mortal to pen so much confusion, ambiguity, distortion and misunderstanding in what is basically a book-length argument for a personal opinion masquerading as hard science.

I would not say that as you seem to be a fundamentalist on nonsense. Carbs are carbs. There are certain foods and certain ways of processing foods that should be avoided, that is all. Yes to baked potatos, no to French fries which are glycated and thus have AGEs(advanced glycation end products). Yes to whole wheat, since it has its fiber intact, no to white flour since it is so finely ground it will shoot up the blood sugar. This carb-phobia from the Atkins, Paleo, etc. crowd helps no one, except those making money off selling bad dietary advice.
Low carb means low carb, stop spouting nonsense and misleading people with your dangerous advice if you have no clue yourself.
