Don't go vegetarian or vegan for health benefits

user-pic

What/where are the studies that have compared the low-fat, whole foods vegan diet you advocate with either a general vegetarian/vegan, or general omnivorous diet? And if the occasional fish and meat eaters swing the entirety of the 12% reduction in dying (dying younger, presumably, as nothing eliminates our 100% chance of dying), then that seems to imply that health-conscious occasional meat and fish eaters live longer than conventional vegetarians and vegans. It would seem to be presumptuous to say that McDougal/Ornish/Fuhrman etc. following veg*ns will live longer than health-conscious omnivores unless specific studies have been done. I admire Professor Campbell's work, but similarly, in the China Study the healthiest populations consumed the least amount of animal products, but they weren't vegan or vegetarian. He and we in the pro-low-fat, whole-foods vegan camp make a logical leap to assuming that means that consuming no animal products whatsoever must produce even greater longevity and disease resistance, but have any signifcant studies been done that prove this?
