Ron, you beef with the studies I had posted was that they never lowered fat enough to show that a low fat diet was good (you must believe that there is a threshold), therefore, you conclude, I have no proof that a high fat diet is not worse than a low fat one.

However, the reverse would also be true, you have no studies which lowered fat low enough to say that a low fat diet is MORE healthy than high fat. In the absence of such studies, how can you claim that a low fat diet will protect one from disease?

So, I challenge you to find a study which lowered fat to 10% or less, controlled for all other variables, and showed a significant decrease in some disease. Props if it has lots of participants and is long term.

Do you think you can do it?

If this isn't the ultimate example of health and longevity, I don't know what is. (see description under Nutrition forum)

Ron almost had me convinced to become a vegetarian, until I realized that if I felt so frisky that I told my wife that I needed an additional spouse she'd kill me in my sleep.

I'll pass.
