A look at The China Study: The Most Comprehensive Study of Nutrition Ever Conducted And the Startling Implications for Diet, Weight Loss, And Long-term Health
The China Study: Feedback & Review
One of my all time favorite books to date, full of factual information (that's actually backed by non-biased, scientific research) about dietary nutrition, self-health practices and human biology and anatomy. The China Study is one of the first books ever to be published that reveals the truths about what we should be eating as human beings in order to live our lives as healthy as humanly possible. This book truly served as a huge eye-opener for me, uncovering a lot of the (hidden) facts about nutrition and human health in general, helping me to lose more weight while also living my life in a more conscious way. From the first few sentences of the first introduction chapter, I was fully engaged and had to read on to discover more of.. the real truth about dietary nutrition. This book may literally save your life.
The China Study Book Description
The revised and expanded edition of the bestseller that changed millions of lives
The science is clear. The results are unmistakable.
You can dramatically reduce your risk of cancer, heart disease, and diabetes just by changing your diet.
More than 30 years ago, nutrition researcher T. Colin Campbell and his team at Cornell, in partnership with teams in China and England, embarked upon the China Study, the most comprehensive study ever undertaken of the relationship between diet and the risk of developing disease. What they found when combined with findings in Colin’s laboratory, opened their eyes to the dangers of a diet high in animal protein and the unparalleled health benefits of a whole foods, plant-based diet.
In 2005, Colin and his son Tom, now a physician, shared those findings with the world in The China Study, hailed as one of the most important books about diet and health ever written.
Featuring brand new content, this heavily expanded edition of Colin and Tom’s groundbreaking book includes the latest undeniable evidence of the power of a plant-based diet, plus updated information about the changing medical system and how patients stand to benefit from a surging interest in plant-based nutrition.
The China Study—Revised and Expanded Edition presents a clear and concise message of hope as it dispels a multitude of health myths and misinformation. The basic message is clear. The key to a long, healthy life lies in three things: breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
