The books explains very clearly what in your plate is killing you. The facts given are enlightening and life-changing.
TL;DR: Eat a whole food plant-based diet = survive.
I completely changed my diet from relying heavily on animal based food to an exclusive plant-based diet.
I grew up in Texas, and meat has always held a special place in my heart. I have also been a recreational lifter for the better part part of 18 years, so protein supplementation has always been a part of my dietary regimen.
Last year my wife and I made the transition to a more plant based diet, but we still enjoyed lean poultry and sushi on a weekly basis.
Our health has never been in question, but this slight dietary change did produce noticeable improvements.
After reading the China Study, we've decided to go full vegetarian. I can't imagine suffering due to chronic illness, and I am not going to play Russian Roulette with my food. Mother Nature's pharmacy is where I'll be getting my medicine from now on.
Loved it! I wanted to know more as I was listening to The China Study... I loved the passion this book was written with. Truthful with research to back up the info. Do you want to live a happy, healthy life? Then read The China Study.
I work in the medical field and see the ravages of disease. Nutrition and health is not taught in our society. This has been an education of life changing proportions. It's a simple, inexpensive and effective way of health that can be practiced lifelong. I will use and share this for the rest of my life. Thank you!
I enjoyed listening to the findings of research done over a career to show correlations between food and health. How many diseases are avoidable and can even be reversed with good nutrition. What is good nutrition? Get ready to have light shed on your myths of healthy eating
A must read! A curious take based on extensive research. Scientific information simply put that will definitely change your eating habits at least a bit to say the least.
I I'm actively putting in practice what this book teaches. I've been a vegetarian for 10 months. At first, I didn't exactly knew why besides that I felt better not eating meat or seafood. But since then, everything is starting to make sense. Ask yourself what are the benefits of eating leafy greens. Then ask yourself what are the benefits of eating meat - nutrition-wise. What I've come to conclude is that people eat meat because it is what they were taught. By whom? Not a nutritionist in 99% of the cases. Great book. Lots and lots of information.
