Product Description

Review

“[These] findings from the most comprehensive large study ever undertaken of the relationship between diet and the risk of developing disease are challenging much of American dietary dogma.”
The New York Times

“Reflects the profound changes that industrialization is bringing to diet and disease patterns in China, statistics that have had an impact on reevaluating dietary policy in the United States and worldwide.”
Washington Post

“Everyone in the field of nutrition science stands on the shoulders of Dr. Campbell, who is one of the giants in the field. This is one of the most important books about nutrition ever written—reading it may save your life.”
Dean Ornish, MD, Founder & President, Preventative Medicine Research Institute; Clinical Professor of Medicine, University of California, San Francisco; Author, Dr. Dean Ornish's Program for Reversing Heart Disease and Love & Survival

“Colin Campbell’s The China Study is an important book, and a highly readable one. With his son, Tom, Colin studies the relationship between diet and disease, and his conclusions are startling. The China Study is a story that needs to be heard.”
Robert C. Richardson, PhD, Nobel Prize Winner; Professor of Physics and Vice Provost of Research, Cornell University

The China Study gives critical, life-saving nutritional information … Dr. Campbell’s exposé of the research and medical establishment makes this book a fascinating read and one that could change the future for all of us.”
Joel Fuhrman, MD, Author, Eat to Live

This is a life changing book that should be read in high school so young adolescences can get educated about the importance of what we put in our mouths everyday. I lost 47 lbs in 5 months (oct 2014-feb 2015) and was never undernourished....ever. I didnt have to work out like an Olympian but did walk 2-40 minute walks and feel so much better. You don't need meat or dairy to survive. I find I can eat more and still lose weight.

I purchased this book after watching the documentary "PlantPure Nation". I though it was very interesting, to say the least, and I wanted to learn more about the benefits of a plant based diet. This is not a diet or a weight loss book. It is a book about the correlation between food and many chronic illnesses and how a change in the way you eat can greatly reduce or even reverse the development of numerous diseases. If you are curious about food, want to learn more about the benefits of eating whole foods, this book is a great source of information, backed up by science evidence and more than 20 years of studies.

Ever wonder why seemingly healthy people following the low-fat dairy, lean-white-meat and fish recommendations of mainstream health professionals still get cancer? Or why nations with the highest calcium consumption from dairy also have the highest rates of osteoporosis? If so, read this book. It provides a summary of both laboratory studies and the China Study to show how and why animal protein causes disease.

Anyone who says that this book is in some way "biased" because it promotes a plant-based/vegan diet, needs to re-read the story of the author. The author was not first vegan and then tried to find data to support this. He began as a researcher trying to develop the health benefits of animal protein, only to find out that it is highly correlated with cancer. He then proceeded to dedicate his career to debunking the false health claims about animal protein and to promote a whole-foods plant-based diet.

If you haven't watched Forks Over Knives, go watch it now. If you have, this book will provide all of the detailed supporting research for the views expressed in the film. Watch the film, read the book, and spread the word!

As a scientist, it would be remiss of me to read a book so thoroughly researched and ignore its conclusions.

Despite any counter-arguments that have been made against individual components of the book, as a corpus it is the best summation of dietary knowledge I have ever seen and that humans have to date.

And as a life-long steak and potatoes guy it was a difficult message to receive at first; but my body, wife and family have all benefited from listening to the science in here. I've given a copy to everyone I know, and the book keeps on giving.

Some of the more heavy-handed parts can be excused given the difficulty Campbell probably experiences(d) in fighting the status quo; it tends to embitter people being in that situation, but I'm glad he did.

I purchased this book after having seen it briefly mentioned in a PBS documentary. I have changed my dietary habits because of it and I have also purchased 3 more copies and given them to friends and family for them to decide on their own. I really can't describe the contents here in this review as there is so much information that leads to one conclusion. All I can say is buy it, read it, and examine all the evidence and scientific studies for yourself. Since buying this book (May 2013) I have lost over 65lbs - no exercise or dieting! I just changed my diet intake. Bye bye dairy!! Bye bye meat!! (okay, I still eat 10% of my diet meat).

After you have read this book, you will never shop for food the same way you did before. Life changing, educational, informative, eye opener and sincere. Dr. Colin Campbell have done a great work with his studies on animal protein, and in this book he delivers, with integrity, what the meat, dairy and super markets don't want you to find out. Read it!

This should be required reading for every school. It could be used in any nutrition or health studies class. Given the high rate of childhood obesity and the cancer rates in our country, this book could save many lives with simple basic information.
