    Until the day he died at the age of 95 Dr Mann continued to say that cholesterol was not a factor in heart disease.That fact alone destroys any arguments about the conclusions of the later Masai studies.

    number 29 followed automatically by 30 in the primitive nutrition series.

    Actually, according to plant positive, Mann did believe cholesterol played a part in heart disease, just not that diet had anything to do with it.

    He continued to eat a diet of meat and fat almost with total abandon.He lived here in Nashville,TN and taught and lectured here at Vanderbilt University.I tried to contact him several times. He never responded but I did talk to some of his colleagues.It puzzes me why he concluded that fat,meat,and cholesterol could be safely ignored since his later findings on the Masai showed aterries that wrere damaged from yrs of high fat
    .
    Maybe Heretic can explain that.

    I'm certainly not going to change my diet based on that but it clearly points out there are some things we don't yet understand about the Masai studies and diet in general.
