link to an amazon description of 'The China Study'. This book describes the largest ever study on health and longevity. They found that meat eating correlates very highly with numerous disease, and that vegetarianism was far healthier. A vegan diet was found to have the highest correlation with longevity and health.

I suggest that people very carefully consider the merits and demerits of statistical analysis carefully and how supposed 'correlations' or 'percentages' are more misleading than anything else...particularly in terms of surviorship and other biases inherent in such analysis, but easily ignored by the Human brain... I say this not solely in relation to the above, but just about any other statistic that is banded about this forum and the internet about a host of topics to derive hughe inferences about entire communities and their practices and behaviours.

true, but in a study of this nature it reallly is impossible to do a causal analysis, it's just too many other factors that could interfere. However, they did compare numerous villages, with numerous different ways of life, and this seemed to always be the outcome, so china study really was a well examined and well reported study.
