The China Study: The Most Comprehensive Study of Nutrition Ever Conducted |
by T. Colin Campbell (Author), Thomas M. Campbell II (Author), John Robbins
(Foreword), Howard Lyman (Preface)
Referred to as the "Grand Prix of epidemiology" by The New York Times, this
study examines more than 350 variables of health and nutrition with surveys from
6,500 adults in more than 2,500 counties across China and Taiwan, and
conclusively demonstrates the link between nutrition and heart disease,
diabetes, and cancer. While revealing that proper nutrition can have a dramatic
effect on reducing and reversing these ailments as well as curbing obesity, this
text calls into question the practices of many of the current dietary programs,
such as the Atkins diet, that are widely popular in the West. The politics of
nutrition and the impact of special interest groups in the creation and
dissemination of public information are also discussed.
