The China Study: The Most Comprehensive Study of Nutrition Ever Conducted and the Startling Implications for Diet, Weight Loss, and Long-term Health by T. Colin CampbellMore than thirty 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 Colins 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 Toms 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 - Updated 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.
What “The China Study” Gets Wrong About Vegan Diets
Then I finished reading The China Study that night and started a vegan diet the next day. Colin Campbell, PhD, has devoted his life to nutrition science and revolutionized how many of us, including physicians, view plant-based diets. His research and book thrust the health benefits of a plant-based diet into the forefront of medical discussion. Millions first learned of the link between consumption of animal products and deadly diseases by reading his book and reviewing his landmark studies which began nearly four decades earlier. Today, his work continues to inspire a new generation of medical professionals as well as health-conscious patients seeking to reduce the risk of developing certain types of cancer and coronary heart disease.

My expertise, if one could call it that, derives from the clinical experience I have had in treating cancer patients and discovering for myself the extraordinary relationship that exists between animal protein and cancer. My aim therefore is to present examples of what can happen when we ignore the necessity for a whole food, plant-based WFPB diet and the benefits that are there for the taking, when patients adopt an animal protein free diet. Ten years ago I would have scarcely entertained the possibility that a diet of any description could have an important role to play in the cure for cancer. At that time I had been practicing medicine as a family doctor, a general practitioner in Dublin, Ireland for more than forty years. Like most of my medical colleagues I would have been hugely skeptical of all the various dietary cures that were on offer, all based on little more that anecdotal evidence. Then one day all that changed.

The China Study is one of those weighty, important books that is perhaps more talked about than actually read. In The China Study , T. Campbell II, MD, discuss and analyze the results from the study and other influential nutrition research and recommend their protocol for the best diet for long-term health. Of course, like all nutrition advice, there are many criticisms of the research and conclusions, especially among Paleo Diet advocates. American health statistics are scary. You may feel pretty fit, but the country as a whole is, well, not so great. The conclusions are based on a lot of data.
