Excellent! Couldn't agree with you more. Why do so many people completely ignore the heart disease reversal of Ornish, Esselstyn and McDougall in favor of some little study that shows some little change in some little number?! Heart disease and diabetes can be reversed! Oh, the looks I get when I mention this. Did you happen to see the web broadcast of McDougall at his latest Advanced Study Weekend? One of his lectures was titled something like "The Fat Vegan", which I presume goes into this more.

[I don't know why... it amazes me, but maybe it's the same avoidance of reality that keeps more people from going vegan or vegetarian. People who use added oil, maintain frying in oil is okay, and pontificate that "moderation is okay or "king"" are dealing with scientific reality, and it's a shame.

Yeah, I take a lot of flack for my positions. It's amazing that my father (with heart issues) although having cut back the red meat, still doesn't get it... Lord knows I've provided enough information, resources, recipes. My step-mom STILL things a lot of olive oil is good. Fine myth that promotes a lousy death.

I'll check out the McDougall broadcast. Sounds interesting.

Thanks much for your feedback! Best regards, Mark]
