Sweden has become the first Western nation to recommend a lower-carbohydrate, higher-fat "Atkins"-style diet as part of an effort to reduce the prevalence of obesity and diabetes and to improve markers of heart health, reports Yahoo News. The move stems from a literature review of 16,000 studies on diet and obesity published by Swedish government advisors at the Council on Health Technology Assessment. The report was released by the Council in September and the Swedish government announcement followed shortly thereafter.
