An enlightening study on the link between diet and disease—and a compellingly comprehensive read. My own diet history includes being raised as an American Omnivore (a lot of meat, dairy, and processed foods), becoming a vegetarian at 18 (for ten years), adding meat back into my diet for two years as a competitive mountain biker, and once again removing meat, gradually, from my diet. Reading this book has helped me take my diet into the territory of veganism (finally removing my beloved eggs and cheese!), and has allowed me to feel comfortable and excited by my decision. See if this book doesn't challenge your notion of what is truly healthy for your body, our heart-and-cancer-diseased societies, and our larger environment.

This Book relates the most comprehensive strudy of Nutrition ever conducted. Caldwell B. Esselstyn, Jr, MD is mentioned in The China Study. He wrote a book which was published in February: Prevent and Reverse Heart Diseased. I just returned from a five hour consultation with Dr. Epplestyn in Cleveland, OH. Both my wife and I are Diabetic and I have Conjestive Heart Failure, We have both been on a plant based diet for 6 weeks now with amazing results. Our Dr's have taken us off some of our medications and we have both lost over 20 pounds. We feel better and have more energy than we have had in years. This book is a must for anyone concerned about their present or future health.

The book appears to be well-documented. The point that animal food is a cause of many illnesses is admirably well-established by its brave author.
As time goes on the case against animal food will get stronger and stronger when we take into account the fact that the animals devoured by the mis-informed masses are themselves becoming more diseased by the day. Many animals are loaded with antibiotics, drugs and for them unnatural foods such as the dry food for cattle which very largely is manufactured from the bodies of dead animals of all kinds. The cruel raising of chickens doea not help their health either. It is high time that we wake up to ourselves and begin to form a friendship with the animals. In contrast to the horrible side-effects from much orthodox medical treatment and harmful foods humanity would experience a mentally and physically rewarding effect by extending the hand of friendship to the animals.

"Synopsis" by ,
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 were 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.

[This book is also available in Spanish, El Estudio de China.]

"Synopsis" by , Referred to as the "Grand Prix of epidemiology" by The New York Times, this study examines more than 350 variables of health and nutrition with surveys from 6,500 adults in more than 2,500 counties across China and Taiwan, and conclusively demonstrates the link between nutrition and heart disease, diabetes, and cancer. While revealing that proper nutrition can have a dramatic effect on reducing and reversing these ailments as well as curbing obesity, this text calls into question the practices of many of the current dietary programs, such as the Atkins diet, that are widely popular in the West. The politics of nutrition and the impact of special interest groups in the creation and dissemination of public information are also discussed.
