I just thought this study was rather interesting. If anyone has any comments or thoughts on it I would like to hear what some of the knowledgable posters think.

Interesting that the one postive corrleation was with veg. fat, seeing as how it has been shown to reduce the risk of coronary heart disease

"Subgroups of carbohydrate
Significantly different effects of the different subgroups of carbohydrate on subsequent DWC were observed for women (P < 0.0001) but not for men (P = 0.33). Although the estimates pointed in the same direction for both men and women, an overall significant interaction (P = 0.002) between sex and the carbohydrate subgroups was observed (Table 3Go). In women, a partition model showed that DWC was inversely related to intake of carbohydrate energy from fruit and vegetables, whereas intake of carbohydrate energy from food sources with simple sugars or from added sugar was positively associated with DWC (Table 3Go). A clear and significant positive association with intake of carbohydrates from refined grain and potatoes was observed and a similar but insignificant pattern was found for carbohydrates from whole grain. The results for men resembled those for women, but with nonsignificant estimates."
