Where is your evidence for anything you post Mars? I post links frequently. Did you listen to the hour long podcast? The two interview posts?

Here is a shorter post with lots of links to studies. I do point out the first study the countries with less heart disease are generally wealthier so it doesn't prove anything.

Enjoy yoga. I already did my three mile run. It felt awesome.
This is only my personal experience but obesity and diabetes have been around much longer than the food pyramid in my family. My grandmother's and many cousins were obese and a few diabetic. They were born in the late 1800's!
