I see your point about how some people will misinterpret what they hear... go from "a little" salmon to meals centered around that dish. Still, I like the authors I read to tell the truth, regardless of whether some readers will misuse the information. And John Robbins has always done a good job of that.

It's kinda how medical science has known for a long time that very-low-fat veg or near-veg diets consisting of whole foods can dramatically improve things like coronary artery disease, diabetes, kidney disease, etc. But they think most patients won't be able to comply, so they simply DO NOT EVEN INFORM patients of this option. With a few rare exceptions. That's simply wrong.

On another topic, I can't believe anyone would allow themselves to be sucked into that silly "Eat Right for Your Blood Type" nonsense. There are some really good reviews about the diet/book on the internet, by individuals with good science/medical credentials, and they uniformly pan it. It's "science" simply isn't credible, completely invalid on quite a few fronts. But there are still True Believers out there. As P.T. Barnum once said...
