Ashley, Razwell, etc. We have shown you several times how you have misquoted or misinterpreted studies. I am not going to go over it again. You keep referring to groups of people that have little in common with the average middle aged Americans that are seeking treatment for heart disease. Tokelau has fewer than 1,500 Polynesian inhabitants in three villages. Their isolation confines agriculture to the subsistence level. Inuit is a general term for a group of culturally similar indigenous peoples inhabiting the Arctic regions of Alaska, Greenland, the Canadian territories of Northwest Territories and Nunavut, the province of Quebec and the northern part of Labrador. The Maasai are an indigenous African ethnic group of semi-nomadic people located in Kenya and northern Tanzania The Samburu are an ethnic group in north central Kenya that are related to but distinct from the Maasai. The Dinka are a group of tribes of south Sudan, inhabiting the swamplands of the Bahr el Ghazal region of the Nile basin, Jonglei and parts of southern Kordufan and Upper Nile regions These are all groups of people limited to hunter/gatherer or subsistence level agriculture. Their diets and lifestyles have nothing in common with us. And you wonder why they don't have high cholesterol? As for the French they do have low cholesterol. People refer to it as the French Paradox. Nobody is sure why they are healthy. P.S. Stop answering your own questions. I know you want to pretend that at least one person agrees with you, but hearing you talk to yourself just sounds weird.
