life. I will certainly try it.
It does repeat the same mantra throughout and can feel a little bit 'ranty' in places but if you have any health concerns about a vegan diet, or especially if you have health problems and are looking into whether a vegan diet could help you, this is the perfect read.
This will help you understand our basic dietary needs and gain some understanding of how our choices can be severely misguided by the global commercial organizsations who manufacture/produce/process/advertise our food sometimes to the detrement of our health.
Some nutrition revelations if you're new to this. Read it and be informed.

Every little detail is referenced. The book is scientific. It is an easy read if you are genuinely interested in the subject. It helped me make changes in my eating habits without second thoughts.
Hope this was helpful! ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Plasma cholesterol… is positively associated with most cancer mortality rates. Plasma cholesterol is positively associated with animal protein intake and inversely associated with plant protein intake.
The data do show that cholesterol is positively associated with various cancers, that cholesterol is positively associated with animal protein, and that cholesterol is negatively associated with plant protein. So by indirect deduction they assume that animal protein is associated with cancers and that reducing intake is protective. But if you compare animal protein intake directly with cancer, there are as many negative correlations as positive, and not one of those correlations reaches a level of statistical significance.
Despite any counter-arguments that have been made against individual components of the book, as a corpus it is the best summation of dietary knowledge I have ever seen and that humans have to date.
And as a life-long steak and potatoes guy it was a difficult message to receive at first; but my body, wife and family have all benefited from listening to the science in here. I've given a copy to everyone I know, and the book keeps on giving.
Some of the more heavy-handed parts can be excused given the difficulty Campbell probably experiences(d) in fighting the status quo; it tends to embitter people being in that situation, but I'm glad he did.
Our Canadian Health system is failing and fooling us. Doctors,Clinics and Drug companies are too much profit-oriented. Also I hope government can one-day pass a law to mandate that patients medical records in the hospital should be accessible electronically by patients. Just like now the way everybody can access the file on Canada Revenue Agency and Revenue Quebec.
Scoprirete perché malattie di ogni genere si presentano solo quando si comincia a fare uso di cibo di derivazione animale. I risultati di decenni di ricerche in tutto il mondo sono incontrovertibili, ma pochi sono nelle condizioni di parlare senza subire minacce e ricatti. Campbell e figlio svelano la relazione tra l'alimentazione e lo stato di salute, e non è quello che tutti pensano.
Wenn ich den Gesundheitszustand meiner Kollegen über die Jahre beobachten und meine eigenen vollwertige, rein pflanzlichen Ernährungsstil mit den Ausführungen der "China Study" vergleiche kann ich alle Ergebnisse von T. Colin Campbell nur bestätigen.
Das Thema "Ernährung" ist leider extrem emotional besetzt, so daß hier nach wie vor keine sachliche Diskussion möglich ist - schade. Auch wenn es schwer fällt es zu akzeptieren, der Verzehr tierischer Lebensmittel ist für Menschen schädlich.
Die China Study entlarvt verschiedene "traditionalle" Ernährungs-Märchen durch ihre ungewöhnlich breit abgestützen wissenschaftliche Arbeit. Der Author basiert dabei sowohl auf den von ihm im Rahmen einer gross angelegten Studie in China erhobenen Gesundheitsdaten, als auch auf Erkenntnissen die er im Rahmen seiner jahrzehntelangen Forschungsarbeit in anderen Teilen der Welt gesammelt hat. Das Buch gibt zudem Einblicke in die ungesunde Verquickung zwischen Politik und Wirtschaft in den USA, d.h. zeigt wie vermeindlich "konsumentenschützerische" Gremien defacto nur Propaganda Werkzeuge der Industrie sind..
Ähnliche Zusammenhänge zwischen Ernährung und Krankheit/Gesundheit kann man zwar auch von anderen Autoren in anderen Büchern nachlesen, aber das vorliegende Buch bezieht sich besonders glaubwürdig auf eine der größten wissenschaftlichen Untersuchungen, die es jemals gab. Klare Kauf- und Leseempfehlung von mir.
