From IBTimes New York – Two Peoples Separated By A Common Language

…I don’t think so… (Or should that be I dont thynk so?)
“A team of 22 experts including nutritionists, dieetitians, cardiologists and diabetelogists assessed the method of each diet, whether its claim stood up under scrutiny, its potential health risks, and how it comes out in expereince, grading the 20 diets for their short- and long-term weight-loss results, how easy to follow the guidelines, their nutritional quality, safety, and ability to prevent or manage diseases.
“DASH diet, an abbreviation of Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension, was created in 1997 by the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute (NHLBI) to help combat hypertension and encourage a healthy meal plan. While it was intended to be an “eating plan,” it is designed for the whole family to enjoy healthy meals.
“It is a low-fat diet that recommends people to eat fruits and vegetables, low-fat diary products, fish, poultry and whole grains, ingredients that are high in fiber, potassium, calcium and magnesium, as well as protein and fiber, and low in saturated fat, cholesterol, and total fat. DASH diet eating plan encourages people to reduce the intake of lean red meat, sweets, added sugars, and sugar-containing beverages.
“DASH diet has been proven to lower blood pressure. In the first DASH study of 459 adults, it had the greatest effect especially for those with high blood pressure, and it happened within two weeks of starting the plan, NHLBI reported.
“Many studies have praised DASH diet as moer efficient than hypertension medication in lowering blood pressure.”
