Dear Dr. Campbell: I read your book and heard your talk on the China Study about 4 years ago. It was the first convincing data that a veggie diet made sense. so I switched to a veggie diet with about 5% meat content, no dairy products and fresh fruit daily. I eat as much as I like, get daily exercise walking 4 miles per day and have been fit as a fiddle. I am age 60 now. I have converted about five other family members to your ideas and my diet and we love it. It is easy to stay on salads, fruits, nuts, etc. I am a scientist by trade and think the US health care system should wake up and see the truth. Sugar over consumption is a huge problem too.

I agree on that. The only point I wanted to make is, that a 100% vegan diet is not a natural diet. I do not know of any vegan community in the world. There are however many examples of health and longevity among those who live in communities, eating plant based wih little meat or fish sometimes.
I strongly believe in the powers of a plant based diet and recommend this diet to everyone, just wanted to make my point that a 100% vegan diet, is a diet we created. The reasons for most people to go completely vegan, may be not only related to their health. It's a new diet, just like our bad Western diet that didn't exist either 200 years ago. Within now and hundred years we'll know much more about the benefits of the 100% vegan diet. Going back thousands of years, I still cannot find any info about communities where people were living 100% vegan.
Oh really?! For 1000s of years, what did they eat in the Garden of Eden? Duh.
Dr. Mercola is just about the finest "snake oil" salesman the world has ever seen. Not only is he selling something in almost every article he posts, when he isn't selling he's setting up a future sales pitch with the earlier article. He now sells tanning beds and water filters. I am upset with myself for taking his lame advice, indeed even so far as telling others what i supposedly learned from his nonsense. I stopped using my microwave oven for a month until I met a nuclear physicist and forwarded him Dr. Mercols'a nonsense about microwaves- he advised me all contained in the article was garbage! I stopped taking flu shots based upon his advice- he is selling all kinds of vitamins to enhance your immune system in place of the flu shots he waged war upon. Beware of Dr. Mercola the world's finest Snake Oil salesman. He has technology on his side.
It's very sad that almost every "authority" who is into raw food, alkaline balance, healthy food, or just HEALTH in general, has his or her own shop with plenty of supplements, water ionizers and many things more.It's easy to understand why people have no idea anymore about what is good for their health and what not. It's said already: there are so many supplements, all good for you, that there's hardly any space left for real food.
I think you better spend your money on wholefoods.Reading all supplement stuff makes me think it's not possible anymore to live a healthy life without taking supplements.
