Sean,

I must be thick headed; I just picked up that you were in Australia.
Are you familiar with "Nutrition and Physical Degeneration" by Weston
A. Price? He was an American dentist that traveled the world in the
1920's and 30's looking at peoples that were still living the
primitive lifestyle and eating their traditional foods (he found about
a dozen examples). He then found members of the same group (in his non
PC speak of the time he referred to them as races) that had adopted
white mans food (white flour and sugar) and compared their health. One
of the groups he studied extensively was the Australian Aborigine. You
would find the book interesting. In fact I think it is one of the
"must reads" for anyone interested in health.
