From the Publisher
Even today, as trendy diets and a weight-loss frenzy sweep the
nation, two-thirds of adults are still obese and children are being
diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes, typically an adult" disease, at an
alarming rate. If we're obsessed with being thin more so than ever
before, why are Americans stricken with heart disease as much as we
were 30 years ago?
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.
