About the Book
"The China Study: Startling Implications for Diet, Weight-Loss and Long-term Health" is the definitive resource for anyone considering a plant-based diet and, because of this, more than a half million people have picked up the book.
With the Hispanic community struggling with obesity rates like never before - for instance, Hispanic girls have 2-3 times the risk of having a high body mass index (BMI) than Caucasian girls of the same age - a plant-based diet can improve the health of an entire culture. This and many other facts nearly demand a release of The China Study Spanish-translation edition.
Additionally, Spanish is the primary language spoken in more than 30 million American homes, so there's both a need and a market for this translation.
