critical analysis and individual thought...

Posted by Chad on July 20, 2010 at 7:43 AM

"And as someone who’s already run through a gamut of eating styles due to allergies, ethical goals, and the pursuit of vibrant health, I know how this goes. I’ve been there. In many ways, I’m still there. For this reason, I can wholly empathize with the emotional response my critique triggered in some readers, and I understand why a backlash is apt to occur.

By the same token, I think it’s important to look at what that impassioned response signifies. Are we trying to be healthy, or are we trying to be right? Are we trying to learn, or do rigid beliefs deafen our ears to new knowledge? Have the open minds that led us to search for the truth in nutrition suddenly slammed shut, clamping tight around an ideology that may or may not truly serve us?

Critical thinking isn’t a privilege reserved for the elite; it’s a birthright. My goal is not to tell people what to think, but to show them how to think. How to sift through the vast expanse of nutritional litter and pull out the gems. How to stop blindly following the advice of so-called authorities who may not have our best interest at heart."



Anyone hear of the China Study?  The one that vehemently proclaimed that animal products were the cause of all the disease in China.  Yep, that's the one from T Colin Campbell.


Well,  this young lady, Denise Minger, took her time and diligently went through the analysis of said study.   Unbiased and looking for the truth behind the numbers, she wrote a lovely critique about Campbell's methods.  For which, Campbell wrote a retort to Ms. Minger.  Hmmm, what do you want to bet it was less than flattering, more a personal attack than a retort based on his fact finding.  What a loser.

Her response is linked above!



First, be critical of what someone tells you...even me!  Do your own due diligence, and understand that how a scientist interprets a study is how it will come across, especially if they are out to proof something.  The best studies are conducted when the studiers are trying to disprove something they want to prove, and others duplicate it!

Second, this China study just goes to show again that all this vegan this and that is not all it's cracked up to be...for MOST humans.  Again, everyone is different.  YOU figure out what works best for YOU!
