THE CHINA STUDY

The Most Comprehensive Study of Nutrition Ever Conducted and the Startling Implications for Diet, Weight Loss, and Long-term Health

The China Study, written by T. Colin Campbell and Thomas Campbell, is reflective of the 20-year China-Cornell-Oxford Project, a comprehensive study that compared the health outcomes of a plant-based diet to a diet rich in animal foods across genetically similar people. The authors of this book speak to the connection between nutrition and many of today’s chronic diseases such as cancer, diabetes, and heart disease.

WHOLE

Rethinking the Science of Nutrition

In The China Study, T. Colin Campbell (alongside his son, Thomas M. Campbell) revolutionized the way we think about our food with the evidence that a whole food, plant-based diet is the healthiest way to eat. Now, in Whole, he explains the science behind that evidence, the ways our current scientific paradigm ignores the fascinating complexity of the human body, and why, if we have such overwhelming evidence that everything we think we know about nutrition is wrong, our eating habits haven’t changed.
