No, there have been some attempts, but I can only think of UK writers.
One of the first (and best) which consisted almost entirely of case
histories and orally communicated accounts from history was way back in
the 1960s or 70s.  The book was called "The Supreme Adventure" by Robert
Crookall, published (initially) by James Clark(e) [?] for the Churches'
Fellowship for Psychical Research.  Alas, I no longer have a copy, so
cannot offer an ISBN.

Interesting. Vegetarians (I am now one) claim the reverse, but I haven't
looked at the arguments on either side.  I find meat-eating so repulsive
that I have stopped doing it.  This is an emotional response, I realize,
but after 10 years as a practicing veggie I have not had "various
diseases" apart from ongoing arthritis, which is genetically inherited.
But then, I didn't have much in the way of "various diseases" before!
