Daniel-- Might read "The Saccharine disease"  by Thomas Lattimer
 Cleave -- Dealt with absence of common chronic diseases in Africa.
Burkitt and Painter also did some stuff on the same topic before they
got so famous for fiber and colonic diseases.  Cleave's book I believe
was first published in the late 50's.
