The Science of Plant-Based Diets - And Why Most People Know Nothing About It

The China Study, first published in 2004, is a landmark book that established whole foods, plant-based diets as the healthiest way to eat. Authors Dr. T. Colin Campbell and his son, Thomas M. Campbell II, ignited a fierce debate with their work. On one side are the scientists, doctors, and other nutrition experts who understand the overwhelming evidence that whole foods, plant-based diets can prevent, and often reverse, most chronic diseases. The other side is diverse, including critics whose livelihood would be threatened by a massive shift in preferred diets, their friends in government, and many who are well-intentioned but see no compelling reason to question the status quo.

The book tells two compelling stories, which are inseparable. First, The China Study masterfully explains nutrition Campbell China Study quote smaller.jpgscience in understandable terms. These facts demonstrate the stunning health impact of a whole foods, plant-based diet. Many lines of evidence come together to make the conclusion beyond reasonable doubt. Dr. Campbell clearly explains his own research, both in a lab setting and in 65 counties in China. Indeed, the massive China Study, which titles the book, is the greatest on-the-ground study of human nutrition ever done. The authors also guide you through hundreds of other studies done by scientists all over the world. This research, reinforcing the China Study's findings, further strengthens the evidence for whole foods, plant-based diets.

The science alone, however, is not the only compelling part of the book. Interwoven with this fascinating information is Dr. Campbell's own story.

It's wonderful how more and more people are realizing the tremendous benefits of a whole foods diet. Once you've done some research (like reading The China Study) it becomes quite obvious that the human body is meant to eat whole foods!

This is important work. I have been disheartened by the value of profit over health in our society so it is so good to get more and better information out about the value of whole foods, plant-based diets. Thanks for your efforts in this!

It is a great study program,even Chinese local can take too much advantage from here. Real Dissertation Help is also a great platform for online dissertation help for students.i have using this service since very long time for my college assignment.

I so appreciate work like this! It seems that we, as a society, just accept what everyone tells us about what we should eat and so many don't understand the value of whole foods, plant based diets. I'm not on one completely but these studies help me move in that direction and get healthier.
Thank you!
