This entire paragraph is bogus. There were large associations between meat and disease, inverse associations between plant proteins and disease, with small associations between wheat and disease. Since this is exactly what naysayers have said in the past, I'm assuming you just did a copy&paste of someone else's claims. That's sloppy.
Thanks for a modicum of common sense.
By the way it's entirely possible that some plants and/or their proteins are somehow harmful to humans, but by and large this is not supported by data regarding most of the veggies we consume. I'm pretty sure you heard of harmful hormonal effects of soy on humans. Thing is, we don't have to be dogmatic about anything but make the best educated decision possible, and it should be plain clear to anyone with half a brain that cutting down on meat and grease will do you good. You don't even have to eliminate meat 100% from your diet to reap the benefits.
