According to T. Colin Campbell, PhD, in his book, The China Study, he and his colleagues did a phenomenal amount of research, more than seventy-four years worth of funded research in less than thirty-five years investigating the association between diet and disease. I will blog often from The China Study hoping to inspire you to read the book. If you already have, then this might be a refresher of the gems of information therein and share it with others.
Problems We Face, Solutions We Need
“I have come to see that the benefits produced by eating a plant-based diet are far more diverse and impressive than any drug or surgery used in medical practice. Heart diseases, cancers, diabetes, stroke and hypertension, arthritis, cataracts, Alzheimer’s disease, impotence and all sorts of other chronic diseases can be largely prevented…Additionally, impressive evidence now exists to show that advanced heart disease, relatively advanced cancers of certain types, diabetes and a few other degenerative diseases can be reversed by diet. I remember when my superiors were only reluctantly accepting the evidence of nutrition being able to prevent heart disease, for example, but vehemently denying its ability to reverse such a disease when already advanced. But the evidence can no longer be ignored. Those in science or medicine who shut their minds to such an idea are being more than stubborn; they are being irresponsible.” (pgs 22-23, The China Study)
