Well, JC, only a couple of years difference and the game isn't quite over yet. Mr. Groves died from cancer but I can't find which kind. For all we know he could have been exposed to asbestos.
If he had no heart and artery problems, no high blood pressure or blood sugar and he was not overweight then he must have been healthy for all those years.
Some of us have family members or friends who eat horrendously. I am not just talking about either paleo or vegan, but actual processed junk, and live forever. Others are very careful and succumb at a fairly young age.
I suspect Dr Campbell would say the higher protein diet made him fertile ground for cancer.

Maybe when your times up its up and diet does not really matter.A bike wreck and a broken hip can lead to an early death even if the diet is perfect which reinforces the idea that its not the material aspects of life that are most important .
