Publisher's Summary

Here is the updated and expanded edition of the best seller that changed millions of lives.

The science is clear. The results are unmistakable.

You can dramatically reduce your risk of cancer, heart disease, and diabetes just by changing your diet.

More than 30 years ago, nutrition researcher T. Colin Campbell and his team at Cornell University, in partnership with teams in China and England, embarked upon the most comprehensive study ever undertaken of the relationship between diet and the risk of developing disease. What they found, when combined with findings in Campbell's laboratory, opened their eyes to the dangers of a diet high in animal protein and the unparalleled health benefits of a whole foods, plant-based diet.

In 2005, T. Colin Campbell and his son Thomas M. Campbell, now a physician, shared those findings with the world in The China Study, hailed as one of the most important books about diet and health ever written.

This heavily expanded edition of their groundbreaking book features brand-new content, including the latest undeniable evidence of the power of a plant-based diet, plus updated information about the changing medical system and how patients can benefit from a surging interest in plant-based nutrition.

The China Study: Revised and Expanded Edition presents a clear and concise message of hope as it dispels a multitude of health myths and misinformation. The basic message is clear. The key to a long, healthy life lies in three things: breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

The new information includes the following:

  • Updated research on heart disease, obesity, diabetes, cancer, autoimmune disease, and other diseases
  • Updated supplementation recommendations
  • A new chapter about the media's coverage, or lack of coverage, of plant-based diet research

    "A Must Read"

    This book is one of the best books I have ever read on nutrition and health. It is completely unbiassed in its approach and has studies to back up all of its findings. It reinforced and expanded on much of what I already knew about how we are manipulated by the food and pharmaceutical industries. We cannot rely on even the government to inform us honestly about what is good for us and bad for us. We must educate ourselves if we want to live a long and healthy and happy life. Here's to all of you who, not only read this book but also implement and follow it's guidelines. May you live a long and happy and healthy life.

    "Great, but need PDF with exhibits"

    Content is great, with potentially life changing advice. The publisher needs to make the exhibits available to audible listeners. He references them no less than 20x in the book but you can't download them!!!

    "Must Read for Health"

    I didn't want to read "another diet book." I could literally open a diet book store with all the books I have bought about that subject. But a friend shoved this book into my hands and said I must read it, and so after letting it sit by my bedside for several weeks, I looked to see if I could get it on Audible, and sure enough it was here. I started reading and listening simultaneously . She told me it would change my life, and so it did.

    It is not a diet book so much as a treatise on what different foods do for us, or do TO us. It came at the right time for me as I had taken an unexplainable hiatus from pretty much a lifelong habit of eating healthy and my health was starting to suffer.

    It gets a little technical in parts but frankly, I've read so many books about food and nutrition that I could cut through all that pretty fast.

    So here I am, eating better than I ever have, and planning on doing it for the rest of my life. I don't have that many years left, being as they say, a Senior Citizen, but I don't want to live even one of my remaining days sick. This is the only book I've read on the subject that makes complete sense to me. Dr. Campbell summed up how to do it on one page. It is so easy to follow. If everyone would eat this way and get adequate exercise, illness would be radically reduced on this planet.

    "If you care about your health and your family, read this book."

    This is one of the most comprehensive book on nutrition and health I have read/listen to. This book breaks down the complex relationship between what you eat and how you feel and the external forces that shape our beliefs and understandings of food choices.

    "The medical masterpiece of a giant in biochem"

    This book literally changed my life. One year after switching to a WFPB diet, I'm leaner and stronger than ever and feeling great. My conscience and environmental legacy are also doing well. Thank you, Drs.

    "WOW- what a Eye opener about nutrition! ir"

    This book has really changed my style of eating, and thinking about food. Very detailed information, which I loved. Not surprised how we are mislead. Everyone has a choice but it sad that we can't wake up America in bettering everyone's health .. individuals will have to figure it out.. Hopefully I can education my family and share with my friends..it's certainly will be a journey for all of us.

    "Very detailed and clearly explained"

    I found that the level in which the data was explained meant that whether you are a nutrition expert or a layperson the content and topics were relevant and clear.
    How has this been kept under wraps for so long? Especially as there are so many high protein diets out there.

    "Mind-blowing - changed my life"

    You won't regret allowing yourself the privilege of experiencing the remarkable story of The China Study. Easy to understand and well constructed, this book is essential reading for anyone looking to take control of their health and well-being with scientifically supported changes to what you eat. Don't be a slave to avoidable disability, surgery or drug companies if you can avoid it!

    I watched forks over knives a couple weeks ago and this book was mentioned. This book changed my life. Our family have completely overhauled the way we look at food and what we eat. Guess what, it was easy.

    "sad study"
    What disappointed you about The China Study, Revised and Expanded Edition?

    Scientific study does not exist of just a few examples.


    What was most disappointing about T. Colin Campbell, PhD and Thomas M. Campbell II, MD ’s story?

    Selfish and high esteem of their own importance.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Some scientist can be so silly!


    Any additional comments?

    The theme is very interesting! Food is making or breaking the body.
    But food will never be a medicine.
