Article on atherosclerosis from this guy:
The cause of atherosclerosis

Pretty interesting
[quote]Atherosclerosis is easily produced in nonhuman herbivores (eg, rabbits, monkeys) by feeding them a high cholesterol (eg, egg yolks) or high saturated fat (eg, animal fat) diet. These studies initially were done by some Russian physiologists beginning in 1908. And atherosclerosis was not produced in a minority of rats fed these diets, it was produced in 100% of the animals! Indeed, atherosclerosis is one of the easiest diseases to produce experimentally, but the experimental animal must be an herbivore.

[quote]Because humans get atherosclerosis, and atherosclerosis is a disease only of herbivores, humans also must be herbivores.

I learned the classifications of omnivore, carnivore and herbivore starting highschool biology, along with some taxonomy.

It bothers me that vegans on the internet keep insisting that humans are herbivores. It makes us look like we are making things up.

I'm impressed that a cardiologist is now calling the taxonomy of human beings into question. It seems a little bit more credible.
