    Hi Zoe, currently going through this with my daughter who thinks I eat far too much meat!! She asked me to read it without looking at your e-mail first. I read it and of course immediately thought mmm not enough meat, too many carbs. I have forwarded your e-mail to her as she promised to read that too. She is of the opinion that 37 researchers who have together reported this story cannot all be wrong, sodium is normally added in cooking so you would get more that way and vitamin D is satisfied from the sun! My question is, do you know who the 37 consist of - are there any conflicts of interest? We are very much agreeing to disagree at the moment

    Not to mention conflicts of interest. From Nina Teicholz https://www.scribd.com/document/3976...ts-of-Interest

    I'm not Zoe, but I do know that if you live in England (or anywhere at a similar latitude away from the equator) you cannot get enough vitamin D from the sun alone during the winter -- basically from the autumn equinox through to the spring one.

    And the Mirror highlighting the hypocracy of the person who paid for the study. Walter Willett an avowed plant based eating proponent leads the study and a vegetarian pays for is, no bias there at all

    And look at who else is supporting this research, big pharma and big food.

    Another person against the report.

    https://bit.ly/2T1xHkY

    John Ioannidis, chair of disease prevention at Stanford University, said he welcomed the growing attention to how diets affect the environment, but that the report's recommendations do not reflect the level of scientific uncertainties around nutrition and health.

    @rafgal Nina Teicholz is working through the 37 people behind the report to uncover their conflicts, Some seem to openly declare their vegan/vegetarian preferences, and that may well extend to the majority. There's also the financial clout to look at behind the study. Someone has done some digging already and released this... https://twitter.com/robynski/status/1085920214720557057

    Good on John Ioannidis for saying what he did.
    The truth is deafening, no matter how quietly spoken.
