Loma Linda Vegans Have Highest Longevity?

A friend emails: “Is this true: “…the vegan Seventh-Day Adventists in Loma Linda, California … are the longest-living Americans”? I don’t believe you ever mentioned it. It’s incredibly significant if true.”

Yes, I believe it is true. Jews are close.

“How can a fat-laden diet of cholent, etc. come close to providing the health benefits of a plant-based diet?”

Because diet is only part of what makes for a long life. It’s probably healthier to eat cholent with friends than vegies by yourself.
