I am sending this because, although Mr Byrnes is copying his messages to sanet, I suspect he is not a member and therefore does not have posting capacities.
Mr Byrnes wrote in response to Dr. Campbell today's message:
Thanks for your response and I will peruse the paper you forwarded
As I indicated in my message (and which you admit to in yours),
the "China Project data . . . ARE NOT sufficient to make firm
conclusions." However, I wonder about your reference to "other
findings going back 2500 years." I assume that these "findings" are
favorable outcomes of vegetarian diets which is simply false: ask
any nutritional anthropologist, how about H. Leon Abrams, Jr.?
I am always glad to see and know someone who believes in his
convictions and defends them. And I'm already with you in agreeing
that Westerners produce the "most expensive food" and the "most
expensive diseases" and that modern medicine does contribute to
the demise of many. There is no question that "progress" has
adulterated our food supply and thereby adversely affected our
health. Where we differ, however, is in a solution to these
problems. I cannot see how veganism or vegetarianism can
somehow solve all of our problems when the witness of history and
evolution are against them.
Alfred North Whitehead said it well:
"An unflinching determination to take the whole evidence into
account is the only method of preservation against the fluctuating
extremes of fashionable opinion."
I hope we both share that spirit.
Thanks for taking time to let me know your thoughts and for
forwarding your summary data to me.
