The book is based on the most comprehensive study of nutrition ever conducted, a 20-year joint project between Cornell University, Oxford University, and the Chinese Academy of Preventive Medicine. The study surveyed the eating habits of 6,500 adults from all over China and Taiwan and found a direct correlation between diet and disease.

Publisher's Summary

The China Study offers conclusive evidence that a change of diet can dramatically reduce the risks of heart disease, diabetes, and obesity. The book is based on the most comprehensive study of nutrition ever conducted, a 20-year joint project between Cornell University, Oxford University, and the Chinese Academy of Preventive Medicine. The study surveyed the eating habits of 6,500 adults from all over China and Taiwan and found a direct correlation between diet and disease.

Author T. Colin Campbell, the study's project director, provides an intelligent, well-documented analysis of the study's results, an analysis that explodes the most common American dietary myths. In addressing the dietary sources of the most common diseases, including cancer, Campbell unleashes a no-holds-barred attack on the commercial interests that profit by selling the American public unhealthy food. He also shows how readers can use the study's results to change their diets and improve their health.

"Reflects the profound changes that industrialization is bringing to diet and disease patterns in China, statistics that have had an impact on reevaluating dietary policy in the United States and worldwide." (The Washington Post)

    "A Very important book"

    this is a fantastic book. it is highly informative, interesting and best of all there is none of the now pervasive sensationalist dogma that is so hard to get away from these days. its just the facts from a highly credible source.
    thanks Dr. Campbell for caring enough about our health to write this book.

    "Convinced me!!"

    Waiting for critics to dispute the research not the style or the author. Why hasn't the money poured into cancer research come up with any effective means of prevention? I never wanted to go vegetarian because so many older vegetarian women are not fit and healthy role models. Now I see that the milk they still drink could be the reason. How could anyone not pass this book on to friends and family who are heading towards disease? Do we have to wait for cancer rates in China and India to rise as affluence increases?

    "A crucial book for many reasons"

    This book is revolutionary. T. Colin Campbell has been a leading nutrition researcher for many years. He and others have convincingly demonstrated that a low-fat, low-protein, plant-based whole foods diet prevents and even reverses the major chronic diseases of Western societies. If you want to get healthy or stay healthy, this is perhaps the most important audio book you will ever listen to. The book itself is very well done. Don't be put off by it being an abridged version. A substantial part of the printed book is charts and graphs that don't translate well into audio. The essential facts are here along with Campbell's personal story, which is remarkable. You may be skeptical about diet books, and with good reason. This is not a diet book. Campbell is a scientist. He sells no diet plans, diet books, or diet foods. His only motivation that I can see is to help people discover the truth about nutrition. The truth, it turns out, is simple. Why it's so hard to learn the truth is not.

    "The China Study"

    This book needs to be read by every living person! This country could be changed dramatically if we would heed what T. Colin Campbell is saying but sad to say only a small number of people will find this book and do what it says. Our government is destroying us in favor of the almighty dollar.

    "Superb research... interesting too"

    This book could save your life, or at least add five to ten years to it. I rated it a five because of the importance and significance of the message. It is somewhere between a three and four as to interest level.
    How does animal protein intake affect our disease susceptibility? This book willl give the documented proof. Disregard this at your own loss.

    "Mind Blowing Book"

    In the Matrix of nutritional confusion, this book is the red pill. The author drops some serious truth bombs right from the start. I've read a lot of books on health and nutrition, but this is by far the most paradigm shifting.
