Numerous studies over the last few decades have clearly shown that people who eat plant based food tend to have a lower risk of chronic disease. Plant strong diets can also protect against the formation of blood vessels that feed cancerous tumors. If you are curious and want to know about the scientific data supporting plant based eating, The China Study by T. Colin Campbell is for you. Packed full of data from the most comprehensive study ever conducted of the relationships between nutrition and disease, this book is a must-read for anyone who is concerned about the downward spiral of health care quality and the upward spiral of health care costs. The China Study is this weeks selected featured product from the Hypnosis Health Info Store.
Book Review: The China Study
VegSource: In the United States, we spend more money per capita on health care than any other nation on earth, yet we are failing miserably at staying healthy. Two thirds of us are overweight, half of us are taking drugs every week for one or more chronic health problems, 15 million of us have diabetes and despite new drugs and new treatments every other Wednesday, we are getting nowhere in the fight to prevent cancer and heart disease. Why is that so? Dr. Campbell says it comes down to three things: breakfast, lunch and dinner. The data from The China Study make that conclusion inarguable.
63% of all deaths globally in 2008 were due to non-communicable chronic diseases and conditions, such as certain cancers, cardiovascular disease, obesity, and diabetes type 2, says the World Health Organization. Poor diets are major contributory factors in all of them.
In regions of the world where plant-based diets are more common, the national or regional rates for these types of diseases are considerably lower, compared to areas where animal-base diets are more prevalent. [Plant-Based Diets May Prevent Chronic Diseases]
In The China Study, Dr. T. Colin Campbell details the connection between nutrition and heart disease, diabetes, and cancer. The report also examines the source of nutritional confusion produced by powerful lobbies, government entities, and opportunistic scientists. The New York Times has recognized the study as the “Grand Prix of epidemiology” and the “most comprehensive large study ever undertaken of the relationship between diet and the risk of developing disease.”
The China Study is not a diet book. Dr. Campbell cuts through the haze of misinformation and delivers an insightful message to anyone living with cancer, diabetes, heart disease, obesity, and those concerned with the effects of aging.
