But you're still working with the ridiculous but widely accepted concept that more red blood cells = more oxygen delivery.

I've shown you why this is a false concept, and why cardiac function is so reliable that it regulates oxygen delivery despite big changes in plasma volume.

You have to consider oxygen demand as the driving force, which is always met by oxygen delivery in a normal healthy cardiovascular system.

By the way, if you are right about this then, yes, that's the flaw in my argument. So please, make your best scientific case and because it's likely to be a lively one, I'd think it deserves its own thread.
