Anybody care to do a study on who is most likely to be assassinated? That should be of more concern in this election than eating habits.

I think the calculator needs work.

Of course that's not the only thing that matters and of course people will choose which one, two or many issues will influence their choice. But given that McDougall is primarily concerned about the laws and general climate surrounding health and medicine, it's perfectly understandable that he'd be seeing the candidates in this way.
This is his forum and his newsletter - nobody has paid a cent to be here or read it - and he has the right to say what he wants"
Forgive me for extrapolating, "a healthier climate" of what? I really don't care what the politicians are eating. I want them to do their jobs and give us a healthier economic future.
I also cannot agree that anyone that smokes is considered healthy. PERIOD! Regardless of their trim body and steamed veggie and salmon diet. And let's not forget the excercise. PEOPLE WHO SMOKE ARE NOT HEALTHY!
As for this being Dr. McDougall's forum and newsletter..........you are correct, and he has invited us here to share our thoughts as well. I signed up for a Nutritional Newsletter not a political one, although I welcome the discussion.
