If so, what is your take on it? I just started reading it, but have not finished it.

She actually went back and re-obliterated it, poring over some points that she'd neglected to address as well as re-hashing some of her original arguments. Denise rocks!

T. Colin Campbell advocates a plant based diet (ie. v*gan). He interpreted the data from the China Study to support his beliefs. Unfortunately, for him, a careful review of the data totally obliterates his conclusion that animal protein is unhealthy. Colpo and Masterjohn poked holes in it several years back, but the more recent complete destruction of it by Denise Minger is a masterwork. See links below.

Been obliterated by Denise Minger. I don't think anyone has torn into it as much as she has. Read her posts from the beginning for the full effect. www.rawfoodsos.com

Long story short, it's full of bad science.

I haven't read this article yet, however Dr. T. Colin Campbell & Dr. Loren Cordain had a debate on the matter of protein. You can find a summary of the debate here.

You might as well be reading a book about the Ozone layer hole or flat earth. Bad science is bad science.
