Atkins Dismisses the Harvard Nurses' Study's Conclusions
You dismiss the Harvard Nurses' Study's finding that high meat protein intake may worsen kidney function in part because the diet of the women in the study was "not a low-carbohydrate diet analogous to the ANA [Atkins Diet]." This is true. The "excessive" amount of protein which furthered kidney damage in the women in the Nurses' Study is only about half of what one might expect to get on the Atkins Diet.[979]

Please see the Kidney "Scarring" section for more about kidney risk.
