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!
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.
