I haven't followed this issue 100%, so some of what I write might, be slightly off.

Denise Minger is a 20 something vocal ex-vegan who recently wrote a strong criticism of Dr. T Colin Campbell's book "The China Study" and is general overall a vociferous ex-vegan spreading a lot of information. Dr. Campbell has responded to/debunked her points, at least that is what it looks like from this article.

Some new videos answer her. There are four about The China Study and her criticisms of it. And four about Ancel Keys and his oponents who say that he was wrong about saturated fat. There are 71 videos in total. Each one I've watched has fascinating information and lots of facts. The man who produced them has done sterling work in defending veganism.

This video is about Ancel Keys. You can find the others there by searching for Primitive Nutrition 62: China Studies, Part I. The others about that study are numbered 63, 64, 65.

Oh, and the first video of the whole series has some familiar faces in it.

One or two of the other videos use studies from non-human animals to support the argument and I cannot recommend those parts of them. Non-humans are not human and can't reliably be used as models for humans. But it is still a great video series with lots of good information.
