Bottom line: That means 97% of the population eat a ton of crap (fast food, cakes, candy, ice cream, fried food, pizza, and more). Oh yeah, and don't exercise.
So, if health is the criteria, it really doesn't matter if you are vegan or paleo or anything in-between. If you omit the crap food and move, you will be significantly healthier.
P.S. I'm not going to let the vegans tell me that eggs are bad for me and I'm not going to let the paleo folk tell me to eat more butter, bacon, and saturated fat. I eat eggs, rarely use butter, occasionally eat bacon, and saturated fat is in some of the foods I eat. And, if this is considered a valid "marker", my total cholesterol has gone down 34% since I started living the elusive healthy lifestyle.
So, passionate vegans and paleo folk: When you have the attitude of: "it's my way or the highway", you are doing a disservice to 97% of the population. All you do is confuse them.
