No paper yet, and none of the news stories discuss any attempt to de-confound for carb intake in general, much less grain intake specifically.

Fat intake is based on estimates from questionaires, so there's that issue as well.

Given that T2D is a completely optional ailment, and most people following, for example, Grain Brain or Wheat Belly are getting 3 grams/day of DHA+EPA, and no one is complaining about getting a T2D diagnosis (quite the opposite), I'm not terribly worried about what the eventual paper will say.

The authors may have disclosed no industry ties, but when Omega 3 DHA&EPA are under attack, we also have to rule out vegan nutters on a crusade.
