    For more than 40 years, T. Colin Campbell, PhD, has been at the forefront of nutrition research. His legacy, the China Study, is the most comprehensive study of health and nutrition ever conducted. Dr. Campbell is the Jacob Gould Schurman Professor Emeritus of Nutritional Biochemistry at Cornell University. He has received more than 70 grant years of peer-reviewed research funding and authored more than 300 research papers.The China Study was the culmination of a 20-year partnership of Cornell University, Oxford University and the Chinese Academy of Preventive Medicine.

    A 1999 graduate of Cornell University and recipient of a medical degree in 2010, Thomas M. Campbell II, MD, is a writer, actor and five-time marathon runner.
    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.

    • The China Study

      If you care about your health and reducing your chances of cancer, diabetes, MS, osteoporosis, cataracts, heart disease, Alheimer's etc well into your 80's - read this book. A friend gave it to me thinking I had given it to her - How lucky I was. It's not a fluffy fun read - it's a read to take charge and make good informed decisions about what you put into your body on a daily basis that retards disease and promotes higher energy, and reduces if not eliminates the need for medical intervention - pills & surgery etc. I watch my extended older family members suffer heart disease and diabetes and take 5 to 30 pills a day. I'm going with preventitive medicine and this book is a GREAT start! I'm buying copies for the people I love. Happy Health!

      Very informative, excellent writing and research. I purchased multiple copies to give to family and friends to help them make informed decisions about their health, and the part that nutrition plays in preventing disease, and surviving if already afflicted. I recommend reading chapters 16 and 17 first, to get over the sense of disbelief, or "why haven't I heard this before?" and then reading the entire book.
