      China Study Attacked by Raw Meat Eater

      The recent commotion caused by a 23 yr old English major who promotes the use of raw foods, including raw meat, has sparked a lively conversation online, much of it negative criticism of The China Study and Dr. Campbell's work. This is unfortunate, as her use of statistics is inappropriate, she ignores what most of the book is about and she makes unfounded claims appear rational to people unschooled in statistical analysis or biology.

      Dr. Campbell has taken time to create a response to this critique since it has garnered so much attention, especially because of all the people whose first introduction to The China Project is this negative critique's misleading statistical approach. 

      Dr. Campbell graciously responded:

      It is both interesting and gratifying that there has been such a huge response, both on her blog and on those of others. This is a welcome development because it gives this topic an airing that has long been hidden in the halls and annals of science. It is time that this discussion begin to reach a much larger audience, including both supporters and skeptics...

      (For the full text of his response, go to his website: www.t.colincampbell.org)

      Her posting and postings like it have been popping up all over the web for the last week or so, and her blog has had an explosion of responses and comments (in the thousands) from others who agree with her views and/or disagree with Dr. Campbell. We ask you to engage in these online conversations, as there are many poorly informed opinions currently being presented as definitive facts.  The first list below is one of websites that already have a discussion started about the critique, and would probably benefit from further discussion. The second list are websites that might be appropriate places to start new discussions around the subject, to inform people of this critique and explain the pitfalls of her approach.
