ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT BOOKS I HAVE EVER READ.,
This review is from: China Study, The: The Most Comprehensive Study of Nutrition Ever Conducted and the Startling Implications for Diet, Weight Loss and Long-term Health (Paperback)
This is an amazing book.If I could give it 6 stars I would. I have just ordered a copy for myself, having finished reading the one from the library.
I have always been interested in the link between health and diet and for several years was vegetarian.I eventually gave up, my family insisted on meat and I became tired of cooking two meals each evening. Milk and cheese too was included, as I and my family were convinced it was needed in our diet. We had been told so.It was a valuable source of calcium and calcium was needed for strong bones.
I have just been diagnosed with osteoporosis. Why, when I eat and do everything I should?? So I started reading again. This book is a huge eye opener. I couldn t put it down and finished it in two days. I feel clearer about what I should eat for general health, no "diet" plan for Osteoporosis or Cancer but for every ill that we suffer from and the outcome- better health. I have explained to my family that I am now a vegan, and as they are concerned about me they respect my wishes. Of course the first question was, what about calcium?! And then protein, what about meat??
READ THIS BOOK, for yourself and your family. Make up your own mind.

This book is widely interpreted as giving a vegan message. The wholefood message in this book is excellent but it should not be taken as a pure vegan message. The devil, if there is one, is refined and processed foods, particularly grains, (including animals fed on (refined) grains) rather than natural animal foods (See other reiviews for further details). There is a good case for including SOME natural animal foods in the diet together with whole plant foods By all means read this book but read many other books as well before making up your mind, as this book gives only one side of the argument.

Hi "A Happier Person" I would be really interested into talking you about being diagnosed with osteoporosis and if the change in your diet has helped this in any way. My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org Thanks
