Ha ha, thanks Chris. Actually I don't spend much time looking into things now, but I did research and blog about it for a few weeks. This was mainly for my own benefit, and that's what I refer to know and then. A lot of it came from Google and YouTube videos, because I like to see peoples facial expressions when they say these things. It's also interesting to note that a lot of sense comes from people who are close to retirement or are retired, because they have no fear of losing their careers from lack of funding. T Colin Campbell is quite explicit on this.
Sometimes I remember things but can't remember the source, for example the Norway story, I think that was T Colin Campbell, or it could have been "A Delicate balance", the Australian movie. But if I Google a few words such as Norway, World war 2, invaded and animals I find the same story at http://www.benbest.com/health/cardio2.html
- titled "PREVENTION OF CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASE". It says:
"During World War I severe food shortages led the Danish government to stop meat consumption for a full year. Mortality rate from disease dropped 34% during that year. The same experience was repeated in Norway during World War II -- and disease mortality returned to pre-war levels when meat was available again. The world's largest culture of people with long lifespan is the Hunzas, who are almost entirely vegetarian. In 1964, heart specialist Dr. Paul Dudley White (who treated Eisenhower's heart attack) traveled to Kashmir to study the Hunzas. He found no trace of coronary heart disease even in the 25 men he studied who were over 90. A study of 24,000 people at Loma Linda University showed lacto-ovo vegetarians to have one third the heart disease mortality and pure vegetarians to have one tenth the heart disease death rate of meat-eaters."
Well I knew about the Hunzas from John Robbins, and now I know about WW1 and Denmark as well. That was all done in 10 mins, thanks to Mr Google.
