"as animal food consumption approached zero, cancer rates
fell. Areas of the country with an extremely low consumption of animal food were virtually free of heart attacks and cancer. An analysis of the mortality data from 65 counties and 130 villages showed a significant association with animal protein intake (even at relatively low levels) and heart attacks, with a strong protective effect from the consumption of green vegetables.
All animal products are low (or completely lacking) in the nutrients that protect us against cancer and heart attacks—fiber, antioxidants, phytochemicals, folate, vitamin E, and plant proteins. They are rich in substances that scientific investigations have shown to be associated with
cancer and heart disease incidence: saturated fat, cholesterol, and arachidonic acid. Diets rich in animal protein are also associated with high blood levels of the hormone IGF-1, which is a known risk factor for several types of cancer.
The China Project showed a strong correlation between cancer and the amount of animal protein, not just animal fat, consumed"...........................

We will just have to agree to differ on this one, but I do respect your views.
