Publisher's Summary

Here is the updated and expanded edition of the best seller that changed millions of lives.

The science is clear. The results are unmistakable.

You can dramatically reduce your risk of cancer, heart disease, and diabetes just by changing your diet.

More than 30 years ago, nutrition researcher T. Colin Campbell and his team at Cornell University, in partnership with teams in China and England, embarked upon the most comprehensive study ever undertaken of the relationship between diet and the risk of developing disease. What they found, when combined with findings in Campbell's laboratory, opened their eyes to the dangers of a diet high in animal protein and the unparalleled health benefits of a whole foods, plant-based diet.

In 2005, T. Colin Campbell and his son Thomas M. Campbell, now a physician, shared those findings with the world in The China Study, hailed as one of the most important books about diet and health ever written.

This heavily expanded edition of their groundbreaking book features brand-new content, including the latest undeniable evidence of the power of a plant-based diet, plus updated information about the changing medical system and how patients can benefit from a surging interest in plant-based nutrition.

The China Study: Revised and Expanded Edition presents a clear and concise message of hope as it dispels a multitude of health myths and misinformation. The basic message is clear. The key to a long, healthy life lies in three things: breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

The new information includes the following:

  • Updated research on heart disease, obesity, diabetes, cancer, autoimmune disease, and other diseases
  • Updated supplementation recommendations
  • A new chapter about the media's coverage, or lack of coverage, of plant-based diet research

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

I have enjoyed the authors breaking down of all the research done on the subject of diet and how it relates to disease. This is a must read for anyone who is overwhelmed with the mountains of conflicting diet and health information out there.

Inspiring and eye opening

I loved listening to this book! When I began to have some mysterious and possibly serious health issues arise, in which doctors were not sure what the cause was, I began doing my own research. Someone recommended this book to me and I found it to be so inspiring and informative. It reinforced my belief in our abilility to health our bodies with proper nutrition. And the information presented is backed up by studies. A must read for anyone interested in improving their health and learning about the impacts that eating animal products has on the body and the environment.

Mind blown 🤯

Due to being allergic to multiple foods and environmental factors, I have needed to stay away from many of the foods that are recommended to be avoided in this book, but I had no idea that eliminating these foods would also help my health in so many ways. I cannot get over how thorough the original study was and how much data was collected with so many variables, it’s no wonder they have regarded it so highly. Definitely worth the read if you want to know more about the statistical analysis of global nutrition. Amazing book.
