 Here’s a great writeup on the recent thorough discrediting of T. Collin Campbell’s “The China Study.”  The China Study is often referenced as the bible as to why meat is bad for you.  However, as more and more researchers dig deeper in to the raw data that went into writing “The China Study,” more and more inaccuracies, fallacies and poor science are being revealed.  This link by the ever-entertaining Dr. Kurt Harris, contains several embedded links including an exhaustive look at the facts and raw data (Aidan, Alan, Rob, and the shipyard Engineering crew…that’s for you).
