I will always be looking for verifiable proof Chris, for as long as human beings are more preoccupied with their own agendas than double checking the records to (for example) ensure their planet does not drown in oil.
Therefore that I will have to agree to disagree with much of what you wrote and in particular:
"The Haemoconcentration (an increase in the concentration of red blood cells in the circulating blood) that you refer to ... ... is of a permanent nature that addresses the true cause of the physiology, and not a temporary measure that you have suggested."
A double check of the definition of Haemoconcentration will confirm that it is most definitely a temporary measure and an undesirable one since it relates to the viscosity of the blood due and in the case of fasting, to dehydration. So that comment for one, simply does not make sense.
