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.

    "Loaded with facts"

    A comprehensive study of facts I did not know. The old adage you are what you eat rings true.

    "Eye opening!"

    I was diagnosed with Crohn's disease in 2007. I started out on a huge bag full of prescription drugs for a few weeks to get it under control. I started doing research because I didn't want to rely on the drugs the rest of my life. I learned about the use of probiotics. I have been under control since then. Now I know that I can kick it in the butt with this information!!

    "5 Stars if your ready for it!!!"
    Would you listen to The China Study again? Why?

    This Book is an eye opener!!!! Do yourself a favor and listen to the facts of the study. I did exactly that, and implemented much of the advise they offer. It has made an incredible change for the good in how I feel and look.

    Where does The China Study rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    The China Study ranks as one of the best books I have ever read.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The China Study?

    The key-point: 49-to-0


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The recovery of the 50 coronary ill patients without medication, surgery, or devices


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes - however this is a book deserving of deep study. It is life altering.


    Any additional comments?

    Another note worthy point of the China Study, and more importantly Mr. T. Colin Campbell, and Mr. Thomas M. Campbell is the golden thread of "Integrity" is woven throughout this book. The delivery or narration is award winning...

    "Eye Opening"

    An eye opening study. Everyone should read this book several times. We've known for a long time that change has been needed. It's time to make those changes.

    "Fantastic book for anyone interested in nutrition"

    This book is solidly researched, well written and compelling. A long time self-proclaimed omnivore, I have really bought into the author's well studied and explained arguments, and I am soon to embark on a real food, lower fat, vegetarian regimen.

    The author explains the effect that various diets have on different populations, giving examples and quoting studies at every corner to support his claims and conclusions. This is not just a survey of different groups and their health. There is abundant practical information and guidance about changing one's diet for long-term health, as well as a candid and refreshing view of the various interests that shape the nutrition field in the US. It is at least comforting that someone who really knows how the industry works is willing to speak up and share the many shortcomings of a system that is supposed to protect and represent us, yet it gives too much power and leeway to special interests, be it the pharmaceutical and supplement industries, or a number of animal products agencies.

    I could not recommend this book more.
    Thank you to Mr. Campbell for his research, dedication to public health, courage, information and advocacy.

    "I wish I new all this 20 years ago. Amazing! "

    The knowledge in this book is desperately needed by the public. I'm so glad I found this book while I'm still relatively young. I know this knowledge will help me live a long, healthy, drug free life.
