Thank you very much. This is an excellent reference. We can also look to actual people who live exclusively on meat diets: eskimos and inuit peoples. Note to those not knowing the difference: the Eskimos originate from arctic siberian coasts, and migrated relatively recently to northern Alaska; the Inuit are long term residents of the Alaskan and northern Canadian coastal regions.
