If we are talking of the same "people" here, they are also known because of their high seal (or whale) blubber diet. I saw a program on it how a DR researched their low incidence of heart problems. It was one of the first studies on very high Omega-3 intake. Also generally thought well for MS.lyndacarol wrote:Also please recall that MS has been nonexistent among the Eskimos and this has contradicted the generally accepted conventional wisdom of the "north-south gradient."
Without carbohydrates in the diet....the brain and central nervous system will run on ketone bodies, converted from dietary fat and from the fatty acids released by the adipose tissue; on glycerol, also released from the fat tissue with the breakdown of triglycerides into free fatty acids; and on glucose, converted from the protein in the diet.
A good discussion of the rationale for a minimal amount of carbohydrates in the diet can be found in the 2002 Institute of Medicine (IOM) report, Dietary Reference Intakes. The IOM sets an "estimated average requirement" of a hundred grams of carbohydrates a day for adults, so that the brain can run exclusively on glucose, "without having to rely on a partial replacement of glucose by ketone bodies." It then sets the "recommended dietary allowance" at 130 grams to allow margin for error. But the IOM report also acknowledges that the brain will be fine without these carbohydrates, because it runs perfectly well on ketone bodies, glycerol, and the protein-derived glucose.
