    Great quote from Adele Hite

    "In a natural setting, rodents may do well on a diet of mostly grains. On the other hand, humans in a natural setting would do okay on a diet of mostly rodents."

    Only three posts here but they are good ones.

    This reminds me of all the rodent studies that anti's have posted as absolute proof LC is detrimental to health even phoenix cites one as gold standard on her blog  Rolling Eyes 

    This from the Scientist exposes the failings

    Inside a Lab Mouse’s High-Fat Diet

    Researchers should pay closer attention to the diets they use to study obesity in mice, experts advise.

    It's like the studies that "proved" that rabbits fed cholesterol got ill. Well of course they did, they have no mechanism, or need for a mechanism, to metabolise something they never eat.

    Rabbits eat grass and their own droppings. If humans did that they'd become pretty ill too.

    Peter at Hyperlipid has done some pretty hilarious takedowns of some of the lab diets used in animal research, often they are trans fats and sucrose with almost no food content.
