living longer?

So this should be a comment, but I'm a couple days behind on the blogs and thought that it might get buried if I posted it now. My question is on the link posted by Whannt is Coffie that suggests that vegans and vegetarians live 6-10 years longer.

My question is, beyond the obvious issues with a diet heavy in red meat, is this a statistic with any value? I have no doubt that vegetarians live longer than meat eaters, I also have no doubt that vegetarians have better health care, get higher salaries, have more advanced degrees, have fewer drug addictions, get shot less, etc. see what I'm saying? are there any studies with controlled variables on this at all?

rad story

former first baseman Vic Power was black, and played in the '50s and '60s. One time in the early fifties, he was in Kansas City at a restaurant, and was approached by the manager.

The manager said, "I'm sorry, but you have to leave, we don't serve black people"

Power said, "well that's good, cause I don't eat black people, now go get me a burger motherfucker".

careful Dan

A San Francisco man claims he was high on a double dose of medical marijuana cookies when he screamed, dropped his pants and attacked crew members on a cross-country flight, forcing its diversion to Pittsburgh, the FBI said Wednesday.

Kinman Chan, 30, was charged in a criminal complaint with interfering with the duties of a flight attendant on allegations that he fought with crew members of US Airways Flight 1447 from Philadelphia to Los Angeles on Sunday. His federal public defender, Jay Finkelstein, declined to comment.
