The study which analyzed data of more than half a million people found that 30% of people on a low-carb diet, died as compared to those on a high-carb diet.

This is because the required fibers, vitamins and minerals, which are easily sourced in high-carb foods, were being deprived to those on low-carb diets, affecting people's health.
