The China Study offers conclusive evidence that a change in 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 public unhealthy food. He also shows how readers can use the study's results to change their diet 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.”
“Everyone in the field of nutrition science stands on the shoulders of Dr. Campbell, who is one of the giants in the field. This is one of the most important books about nutrition ever written—reading it may save your life.”
—Dean Ornish, MD, Founder & President, Preventative Medicine Research Institute; Clinical Professor of Medicine, University of California, San Francisco; Author, Dr. Dean Ornish's Program for Reversing Heart Disease and Love & Survival
“Colin Campbell’s The China Study is an important book, and a highly readable one. With his son, Tom, Colin studies the relationship between diet and disease, and his conclusions are startling. The China Study is a story that needs to be heard.”
—Robert C. Richardson, PhD, Nobel Prize Winner; Professor of Physics and Vice Provost of Research, Cornell University
“The China Study gives critical, life-saving nutritional information
Dr. Campbell’s exposé of the research and medical establishment makes this book a fascinating read and one that could change the future for all of us.”

The tremendous value of this life-altering book lies in how it can help you avoid or reverse the most common Western diseases (cancer, heart disease, diabetes, obesity, autoimmune disorders, etc). The multitude of sound, scientific evidence presented is absolutely compelling. The PhD author, who grew up on a dairy farm, has lofty credentials from Cornell, MIT, and Virginia Tech. He presents extensive research that he and others around the world have done to demystify the relationship between diet and Western diseases. The author was also the director of the most comprehensive human diet study ever done: The China Study. His bottom line is that to avoid/reverse disease, minimize animal protein in your diet (meat, dairy & eggs). On only 5 weeks of this diet (and I was not following it to the letter), I enjoyed several exciting health benefits - and I didn't even have any diseases to start with. The book also explains the forceful influences in industry, government, and academia that have prevented you from hearing about this beforeWas this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

I recently purchase the CD Version of The China Study. It has changed my life in what I eat and how I feel. I own a First Class Restaurant, and have posted copies of the Book's Cover on the dining walls and restroom mirrors along with Barnes & Noble as my source. I see some fine people who are very ill from Heart Disease, Cancer, and all kinds of ailments. The wonderful thing about The China Study is you still have time to be well, and live a wonderful life by making simple changes in what you put in your mouth. Without any special effort I have gone from 184 lbs to 164 lbs in the past 5-6 weeks. I often tell customers that if I loose customers and I loose some business because they have changed what they eat, but it saves their lives, it's all worth it. Thank you Father Mother God for T. Colin Campbell and his son Thomas Campbell for writing this wonderful book. I pray that everyone who reads this review immediately purchase a CD copy of The China Study and The Shack.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

This book is written in a very accessible style, it's easy to read even though it talks you through extensive research findings. I also like the journey that the author takes his readers on: most of us who read this book will probably have set out from the same place that he did, with the same assumptions about the value of animal-based protien in our diets. Campbell grew up on a farm, eating meat and drinking milk. In The China Study he shows us, through research investigation that spans decades, how he came to understand the trade off between efficient 'animal' and healthful 'whole food, plant-based' protein and the link between animal-based diets and the 'affluent' diseases that are the primary killers of first world inhabitants 'cancer, heart disease and diabetes'. This is not a book that advocates veganism from an idelogical perspective. Instead, it builds a compelling case for a whole-food, plant-based diet as a way to improve our quality of life and reduce the incidence of cancer, heart disease and diabetes. Equally pertinent to both those looking for a non-invasive, natural way to manage existing conditions and those hoping to avoid them, The China Study is interesting, challenging and could quite possibly be the foundation stone of the healthcare reform we so desperately need.Was this review helpful?

This is perhaps the most researched diet book ever published. It does not rely on hype and sensationalism. It begs many questions of the status quo. The authors do not seem to be marketing any particular items like so many diet authors. It is an understatement to state that this is an enlightening text. This may prove to be the only salvation for a world with one billion overweight individuals. This is a must read for all health care workers and lay people alike.Was this review helpful?

Excellent scientific study of diet and nutrition on diseases. Advocates a whole food, plant-based diet to reduce disease such as cancer and heart disease. Discusses an impressive and extensive array of data. If you are interested in long term health and fitness - this will be an eye-opener.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
