Diet, life-style and mortality in China: a study of the characteristics of 65 Chinese counties.

Notes: 

- One of the strongest predictors of disease (III) was blood cholesterol. As blood cholesterol levels decreased many cancers decreased. Animal protein increased LDL; plant protein decreased LDL. (Most aware of saturated fat, and dietary cholesterol; some might mention soy or fiber, but few aware that animal protein has anything to do with blood cholesterol levels.)
Colon cancers not higher, even though almost no dairy is consumed, and calcium levels are moderate.
