Made me rethink nutrition and what I thought I knew! Also opened my eyes to how corrupt and ill informed our government is but also our health care system!
The huge pharmaceutical companies and food corporations don't have your health and quality of life in mind. Skip the doctor and have an apple. Meat isn't so much murder as it is suicide. Forget how the food feels in factory farms. How do you feel with a quarter pound of genetically modified beef clogging your gut?
I enjoyed the very informative and just as shocking book, as the interviews and other publications I've read about Campbell. I do support Colin T. Campbell , but I feel however that though I love how the book was trying to focus on the "whole" theme when it comes to nutrition; there was a lot if derailment on what looked like an old man crying,"No one will believe me!" Which gets brought up numerous times. That said, it really is upsetting how no one listens or tries to silence Campbell on such vital information about our health. The narration was well done.
We, the people, is what it will take to go up against the crappy food pushers and pharma. Truly wish this was what all 5 th grade teachers read to their whole class.
After listening to the China Study, I was very excited to listen to T. Colin Campbell's new book, Whole. The problem is that he spends most of the time telling you how everyone else is wrong and how he was shunned. The overarching bitterness in the book really takes away from the actual good nutritional information provided. I was seriously disappointed. I would not recommend this to other people, simply for the fact that his bitterness really clouds the validity of his perceptions of a plant-based diet. As a vegan following a plant based diet, this was really disappointing from a great scientist.
The nutritional information, and research presented are definitely good info. The hard part is sifting through the rest of the "whiny" tone of the book and finding the good information.
I enjoyed the book a lot. Narrator eventually made me cringe every time he would make an "s" sound. It was probably partially the fault of the sound engineer, but it really took away from the enjoyment of the book.
Up to now I have dismissed plant-based diet as a fad. I am now motivated to research and potentially adopt such a diet based on the arguments presented in this book. This is a book worth reading or listening to. The reading is excellent at 1.25 speed.

Yes, I really didn't expect how enlightening the book really was. The author uses classical argumentation to succinctly educate the reader (listener) to a vast amount of research (that was unknown to me) that is of tremendous importance to anyone wishing to rethink commonly held ideas about nutrition.
Yes, as a physician I was shocked at how difficult it must be for a layperson to have confidence in anything they hear (especially from government).
This will serve a source of reference for me, and I admire the author, Colin Campbell PhD.
