"Vegetarians have the best diet.  They have the lowest rates of coronary disease of any group in the country.  Some people scoff at vegetarians, but they have a fraction of our heart attack rate and they have only 40% of our cancer rate." 

--- William Castelli, MD, Director of the Framingham Heart Study, the world's longest ongoing investigation into heart disease and diet.
