Item description for The China Study: The Most Comprehensive Study of Nutrition Ever Conducted and the Startling Implications for Diet, Weight Loss and Long-Term Health by Thomas M. Campbell II...
Overview The link between nutrition and heart disease, diabetes, and cancer is presented in an authoritative text--based on a survey of thousands of adults throughout China and Taiwan--that reveals how proper nutrition can have a dramatic effect on reducing and reversing these ailments.
Publishers Description This exhaustive presentation of the findings from the China Study conclusively demonstrates the link between nutrition and heart disease, diabetes, and cancer. Referred to as the "Grand Prix of epidemiology" by "The New York Times," this study examines more than 350 variables of health and nutrition with surveys from 6,500 adults in 65 counties, representing 2,500 counties across rural China and Taiwan. While revealing that proper nutrition can have a dramatic effect on reducing and reversing these ailments as well as obesity, this text calls into question the practices of many of the current dietary programs, such as the Atkins diet, that enjoy widespread popularity in the West. The impact of the politics of nutrition and the efforts of special interest groups on the creation and dissemination of public information on nutrition are also discussed.

The Best Book on Nutrition: Life Altering! Sep 15, 2008
A friend of mine recommended this book and I can't thank him enough! I have read it cover to cover and so has my husband. We bought 5 copies and have been lending them to friends to read. My husband and I had already been vegetarians and we knew all the health benefits of this lifestyle. The information confirmed all of our reasons and also convinced us to cut out dairy as well. The book is well organized and written in a way that can be easily understood. The research is well documented and the graphs and charts are very detailed and informative. I highly recommend anyone who is interested in their health to read this book!
Proof is in the blood test results Sep 13, 2008
I am a Asian-American (Japanese specifically), I was born and raised in Hawaii and moved to the California when I was 27 years old. I grew up eating meat and enjoyed that until a few months ago. I have always had high cholesterol (in the 220-240 range) and I thought it was genetic. I was into the low-carb, higher protein diet the last few years, probably because it justified eating a lot of meat, which I loved. A few months ago I had some blood work done and I had a total cholesterol of 259, worse a LDL "bad" cholesterol of 164. About this time a friend at work recommended this book, I ordered it and read it. Took everything with a grain of salt but remembered some studies in the 1970s that he referred to about Japanese Americans in Hawaii and California having typical health issues that their Japanese counterparts did not. I gave up most of the red meat and dairy for about three months, ate mostly a vegan diet with some poultry and a little more fish, mostly sushi. After only three months my recent results were total cholesterol of 190, LDL of 104, my doctor went from very concerned and recommending cholesterol reducing drugs to unconcerned. It may not be for everyone but I am convinced that this may have prolonged my life to enjoy with my young children.

THE CHINA STUDY IS JUST SO OUTSTANDING! IT WILL ABSOLUTLEY CHANGE YOUR LIFE! YOU MAY REMEMBER THE MOVIE IN WHICH INDIANA JONES HAD TO CHOOSE, FROM MANY CUPS, THE ONE THAT WAS THE TRUE "HOLY GRAIL". OF COURSE, HE CHOSE WISELY. AS YOU STAND IN YOUR LOCAL BOOK STORE OR LIBRARY TRYING TO CHOOSE FROM HUNDREDS OF BOOKS OFFERING HEALTH AND DIET INFORMATIOM, YOU ALSO WILL HAVE CHOSEN WISELY IF YOU PICK "THE CHINA STUDY". I WOULD ALSO HIGHLY RECOMMEND "THE FOOD REVOLUTION" BY JOHN ROBBINS. YOU WON'T BE ABLE TO SET THESE BOOKS DOWN!

Dr. Campbell has brilliantly brought the higher world of nutrition and biology into a most readable format, presenting the most astounding findings. Good nutrition as the foundation for health is now without question, but treating cancer with nutritional therapies?? Let's see where we can go from here!
