Middle age American men are 1700% more likely to die from heart disease than the same age men in china. Maybe we need to take a closer look at the diet of the Chinese!

There are some interesting statistics that came out of a book called The China Study by T. Colin Cambell.  A comparison of the dietary practices of the Chinese and Americans.

* American women have 5 times the risk of dying from heart disease than chinese women.

* The average Chinese eats mammal meats only 1-2 times per month.

* The Chinese eat fish whenever possible.

* 90% of the protein consumed in China is from plant sources.

* 70% of American protein comes from animal sources.

* American women take in twice the dietary calcium but have much higher rates of bone loss than Chinese women.

* Americans eat 70% less fiber than the Chinese do on average.

* The chinese eat 1/2 the fat that Americans do.

 

It looks like we need to  heavily decrease animal products except for fish and eat mostly plant foods!
