Item Details

Even today, as trendy diets and a weight-loss frenzy sweep the nation, two-thirds of adults are still obese and children are being diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes, typically an "adult" disease, at an alarming rate. If we're obsessed with being thin more so than ever before, why are Americans stricken with heart disease as much as we were 30 years ago? In The China Study , Dr. T. Colin Campbell details the connection between nutrition and heart disease, diabetes, and cancer. The report also examines the source of nutritional confusion produced by powerful lobbies, government entities, and opportunistic scientists. The New York Times has recognized the study as the "Grand Prix of epidemiology" and the "most comprehensive large study ever undertaken of the relationship between diet and the risk of developing disease." The China Study is not a diet book. Dr. Campbell cuts through the haze of misinformation and delivers an insightful message to anyone living with cancer, diabetes, heart disease, obesity, and those concerned with the effects of aging. [This book is also available in Spanish, El Estudio de China .]

Should have read this a long time ago, the most valuable read in 10 years. This book reveals how misled we are by big foods, lobbies and doctors.
Make your own choices after reading the book, or start the changes after one chapter more likely. This is so compelling. Use nutrition to improve your life. I thought I new a lot but I learned much more from this book in plain English, yet still based on proven science and studies.

A disturbing read. Factual information on the science of food and how it affect our bodies. Similar to ":Forks over Knives". Read it and weep.
