That's there's an element there. There's not being addressed and the element I'm specifically thinking about is the role of nutrition. And so I am not totally new to this game. We actually did some work in or China Study many years ago as you mentioned. Over 30 years ago. We were doing this. We were looking at For example, the effect of couple of viruses on causing certain diseases, one virus of which is probably the worst virus in the world. In terms of numbers of deaths, NASA one we worked with it's called a hepatitis B virus that virus called day at the time. Now is also say to but in any case that virus is deadly is said to cause something like 700 800 thousand deaths a year every year and it's Just still out there mostly in Asia and Africa in certain parts of the world, but it's elsewhere to we in our study in China actually had access to and back-to-back studies, more or less in the same population, but I've about worst-case 6,500 adults next to which holds for 9,000 when he repeated it. We had access to measuring or assessing the nutritional status. All these people in great detail, New York Times called it the most comprehensive study ever done in the history of medicine. I think we still may may say that we collected, enormous amount of information. So it gave us an opportunity to have a more in-depth, look at how things, work, how things work to create versus every diseases. And in the ones that we were, of course, primarily interested in that time was heart disease, cancer, diabetes, you know, the so-called And degenerative diseases that are typically found a Russian countries. So we focused on that. That's where the China Study got, most of its reputation. But we also had, you know, access to this virus, on this particular case, is the viruses cause liver cancer primary cause of liver cancer. And that was interestingly. It's that was one of my other Hazard was wearing at the time and went to the Philippines in the 1960s. Because I thought at that time, I was doing some research in that area and I thought it was a chemical that causes the problem. Only to learn that it was nutrition and origin to the old come back to the genres that we collected on nutrition information. Here's what we learned by can just say this correctly and this is such a sensitive topic. But what we learned was that people, net, we don't learn them. This is these are the data, these are real hard data. What we learned was that people who consume the most plant material, they were the ones that formed antibodies to the virus. Okay? Yeah, so people got infected if they formed antibodies, then they tended not to get the cancer and true enough. That's what it is. People consume the most players don't get to liver cancer. And also they have the most antibodies, the two go together. In contrast, the people consume an animal-based food and it wasn't much. Should measure. They just not much as like on average in the areas where we were something like, 10% of what we do in the west. But still that protein, that that kind of protein, animal food was high enough to actually, to actually be a social worthy increase and we find you in the formation of so-called not deformation, but increased in prevalence of antigens of the virus, that means active virus. And also tended to repress the formation of antibodies. So, here you have sort of, you know, a differentiation between animal plant based food on one plant based foods. Are basically, when people get infected, I'm not sure what these Foods, whether the protections against infection, what we come. I'm not saying that at all, but I'm talking about, you know, the consequences of the infection when we get it. So people who have higher consumption, good plant, based food. Well, they form antibodies much more readily their immune, and they had, there's no relationship with with liver cancer. In contrast. The people consume an animal protein, based diets animal food, the eggs, poultry pork, whatever those kind of people, even a small small level of consumption. It's amazing that sort of would never see anything, but it turns out that those who consumed and more animal based foods, There are certain cholesterol level for one thing starts to increase from very low levels and almost no heart disease. It starts to increase. And then you guys start seeing the emergence of heart disease, and Cancers washing chronic diseases. That's what we tend to see. And so here, in this case. Here's a viral disease, not the one of the Gentry Junction of once. We see the same thing, those who consume animal based foods tend to keep around the active virus without On the antibodies they have in. There's the people consume them or animal based foods have an affinity for liver cancer. So the virus is acting out of that's bad. Is bad behavior. What people would consuming animal based foods contrast with consuming plant-based Foods, as I said, they're more inclined to become immunized against the virus and I say, this is hard data, and I'm I'm saying something here a little bit. I've met some of this had been published. It was published back in the 1990s when I was asking that that time or suggesting, we better pay attention to what we eat when it comes to this disease, like liver cancer. For example, we had that information, but no one's paying attention.
