I read with interest the critique of the Women's Health Initiative Randomized Controlled Dietary Modification Trial (WHIRCDMT) by Prof. Tim Noakes. His critique focused on the varying incidence of cardiovascular outcomes between women with and without a history of cardiovascular disease (CVD), and justly called for more discussion and transparency with respect to these findings. The latter half of the critique, however, unfairly portrays the low-fat dietary intervention as deleterious for weight gain and the development of diabetes mellitus (DM).
