    I believe my exact thought were that it was presented very well (considering it was MEANT to convince people that vegetarianism is the ideal human diet), however the data was manipulated so much that it bordered on intellectual fraud.

    I think it's worth watching -- I've had a few people bring it up as "proof" against primal concepts. On a related subject, is the China Study still considered valid? There are a number of very well though out rebuttals on that study out there and, for some reason, I had thought that it was basically discredited since it omitted quite a bit of data and made assumptions where it shouldn't have....

    (Don't mean to change the subject though!)

    Denise Minger's deconstruction of the China Study is very well done. The China Study: Fact or Fallacy?
    One Year Later: The China Study, Revisited and Re-Bashed « Raw Food SOS: Troubleshooting on the Raw Food Diet

    hmm. Why aren't those showing up as links? Oh well, you can google from there.

    And I highly recommend people do! I didn't post the link only because it's the third hit when you type the movie title into Google but I really should have -- thanks, Paleobird!

    Denise is unbelievably thorough in her critiques. I also enjoy her writing style and the fact that she's not afraid to take on Paleo concepts as well when it comes to critiquing. BTW, if you haven't read that "review" yet, it'll take you a couple hours to really get through it. There's lots there!

    She's also one of the critiques I was referring to for the China study -- hell, she has an entire page dedicated to all her posts that deal with The China Study :-).

    Primal/Paleo is not for everyone, it's for those who have committed to understand.
    READ THE BOOK! ...as Robb Wolf says: "Trying to convince people to save their own ass will burn you out."

    I'm watching this right now. So far, I find it interesting that the studies they cite, claim that animal protein stimulates cancer growth. I'm still not sure about this claim.
