The Ketogenic Diet and Cardiovascular Disease Risk

"Will this diet affect my heart disease risk?" is the number one question that I usually get on the ketogenic diet.  It is difficult to answer because we just don't have the data to say one way or another.  However, it looks like a recent study may give some insight into this question.  Hope you enjoy!
