There is a real carbohydrate phobia in the world right now. There is a Paleo crazy and a Protein powder craze. I am not discrediting the importance of protein –however high protein can strain the kidneys and accumulation of too much can result in uremia, bad breath, and an acidic body. ?’s see http://www.ahealthyview.com.au
