I agree with what you say about John Robbins, and I think it adds to his credibility that he's not caught up in vegan dogma.
The Canadian Heart & Stroke Foundation promotes a diet that virtually assures that if you have cardiovascular disease, it will progress. I think their basic story line is, that if their recommendations are considered too radical or severe, they will be totally ignored.
But another possibility is that corporate donors have bought the silence of the foundation.
The Swiss Chalet, a chain of chicken joints in Canada (I'm not sure whether they operate elsewhere), raise a lot of money during "heart month", for the Canadian Heart & Stroke Foundation. I believe it's this same organization, under their "health check" program, that then deems chicken spinach salad to be heart-healthy, allowing it to be promoted this way on the menu. Either way, as you say, it's just wrong.
If you've read the latter chapters of "The China Study", you know the truth of a line I remember from the television show, "WKRP In Cincinnati." "When people really are out to get you, paranoia is just good thinking!"
