    Hi Twin,

    Thanks for the excellent reference. It shows that, among 32,561 Swedish women, followed for nearly 10 years, those who ate the most veggies (by food questionaire) had 20% fewer heart attacks, compared to those who ate the least veggies. But the most veggies was 7 servings, and the least veggies was 2.4 servings a day.

    What would happen for people who followed the Eat To Live program, who ate only healthful foods, got lots of sleep, exercise, etc?

    Thanks again for the great reference.

    Best regards, EngineerGuy
