And this summary quote in the Reuters article says it all (bold is mine):
Ideally, adopt a diet full of plants and whole foods that provides overall cardio-protective qualities: rich in whole grains, vegetables, fruits, nuts, and legumes; eliminate processed foods and trans fats; limit refined grains, saturated fats, red meat and added sugars,” Seidelmann, who wasn’t involved in the study, said by email. “Adults that are interested in pursuing a very low or low carbohydrate diet for weight loss should consult with their clinician in order to weigh the risks and benefits of various diets and to share in the decision making process.”

Easy to determine where this is heading and which nutrition camp supplied the information. Fact is we don't know the risks and benefits with lipid changes being interpreted as a corresponding health marker. We're getting there, but outside of epidemiological studies which are useless and to which this article likely refers, we have lots of N=1 and clinical experiences that point us in a different direction than what we've been brainwashed with over the past 50 years.
