--Chef AJ, Author of "Unprocessed"
"T. Colin Campbell, PhD, has been the most influential nutritional scientist of the past century. His work has already saved hundreds of thousands of lives."
--John McDougall, MD, Founder of the McDougall Program
""Whole" should be required reading for anyone interested in health ... I predict that this book will be the catalyst for millions of people to not only change their diets, but how they think about and make decisions concerning health and medicine. The revolution that will reform our broken healthcare system has begun."
--Pamela A. Popper, PhD, ND, Executive Director of The Wellness Forum; Coauthor of "Food Over Medicine"
""Whole" takes a step back and provides a macroscopic view in order to help us finally gain perspective on our failing health care system and media pursuits.... A masterpiece of intellectual triangulation, outlining the past, the present, and the critical next steps in the future of biochemistry, human nutrition, and healthcare. This book is going to unleash a health revolution!"
--Julieanna Hever, MS, RD, CPT, Author of "The Complete Idiot's Guide to Plant-Based Nutrition" and Host of "What Would Julieanna Do?"
"Why is the most expensive health care system in the world not working? This book provides scientific 'big picture' clarity amidst a sea of confusion about how commercially driven 'disease management' is costing us millions of lives--while wasting trillions of dollars. Understanding how this 'health care monster' operates is the first step toward creating a system that truly promotes health."
--J. Morris Hicks, Consultant, Author of "Healthy Eating, Healthy World," and International Blogger at hpjmh.com
"The reductionist view of nutrition and me
"After reading "The China Study" and drastically changing my diet toward the more whole food, plant-based diet recommended by Dr. Campbell, my career numbers shot up when they were supposed to be declining. I thought to myself 'Why doesn't everyone eat this way?!' This new book, "Whole," answers that question with great clarity. Never again be confused about diet and nutrition."
--Tony Gonzalez, Atlanta Falcons, 16-year National Football League player, record-setting tight end
"America's premier nutritionist, T. Colin Campbell, with courage and conviction, articulates how the self-serving reductionist paradigm permeates science, medicine, media, big pharma and philanthropic groups blocking the public from the nutritional truth for optimal health."
--Caldwell Esselstyn, Jr., MD, author of the bestselling "Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease"
"T. Colin Campbell, based on his long career in experimental research and health policy-making, uncovers how and why there is so much confusion about food and health and what can be done about it. His explanation is elegant, sincere, provocative, and far-reaching, including how we can solve our health-care crisis. Read and enjoy; there's something here to inspire and offend just about everyone (sometimes the truth hurts)."
--Dean Ornish, MD, Founder and President of the Preventive Medicine Research Institute in Sausalito, California; Clinical Professor of Medicine, University of California, San Francisco; and author of the bestselling "Dr. Dean Ornish's Program for Reversing Heart Disease"
""Whole" makes a convincing case that modern nutrition's focus on single nutrients has led to mass confusion with tragic health consequences. Dr. Campbell's new paradigm will change the way we think about food and, in doing so, could improve the lives of millions of people and save billions of dollars in health care costs."
--Brian Wendel, Creator and Executive Producer of "Forks Over Knives"

Read it and get ready to soar."
--Kathy Freston, "New York Times" bestselling author of "The Lean" and "Quantum Wellness"
"Dr. Colin Campbell opened our eyes with "The China Study." In "Whole," Dr. Campbell boldly shows exactly how our understanding of nutrition and health has gone off track and how to get it right. Beautifully and clearly written, this empowering book will forever change the way you think about health, food and science."
--Neal Barnard, Founder and President of the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine
"This book is the key to understanding how to increase our natural longevity and health, it is key to slowing global warming, and all of this at no cost, rather, at immeasurable savings to society."
--Mike Fremont, World Record Holder marathons for 88 and 90 year olds
"In "Whole," Dr. Campbell defines a super-paradigm that elucidates a philosophy--wholism--which medicine needs to aspire to in order to attain an enlightened solution. "Whole" is a masterpiece of intellectual triangulation, outlining the past, the present, and the critical next steps in the future of biochemistry, human nutrition, and healthcare. This book is going to unleash a health revolution!"
--Julieanna Hever, MS, RD, CPT, author of "The Complete Idiot's Guide to Plant-Based Nutrition" and host of "What Would Julieanna Do? "

Then rage against the machine that put you there – the capitalist machine, the big companies of this world who only serve themselves and their financial interests at the expense of OUR health
Colin Campbell, author of the China Study, ( where he presented the undeniable evidence for the benefits to health of a whole food plant based diet ) here presents an in depth argument of why and how the information has been largely kept from the public. Your blood pressure will rise as it is revealed how time after time the interests of the food industry, government, big pharma, the medical establishment and even nutritional researchers have been given priority over the publics right to have access to the latest research which would enable them to take control of their own health
If your blood pressure goes too high then you need to go on a plant based butrition plan.
It has changed the way I think about nutrition and the health-care system. A very important book, in my opinion.
I honestly thought that I knew a lot about nutrition and I was convinced that my lacto-vegetarian diet was healthy.
Then I read these books.
Thank you, Dr. Campbell.
You deserve a Nobel Prize.
