If you’ve wondered why we’re getting sicker and unhealthier, despite the latest in medicine, pharmaceuticals, nutraceuticals, DNA testing, diets and supplements, then do we have the show for you!
Today we’ll be talking With T. Colin Campbell, PhD Professor Emeritus of Nutritional Biochemistry at Cornell University and coauthor of the bestselling book, The China Study and his latest book Whole: Rethinking the Science of Nutrition. His legacy, the China-Cornell-Oxford Project, has been acknowledged as the most comprehensive study of health and nutrition ever conducted. He’s also authored more than 300 peer-reviewed research papers.
Today I want to talk about why the emperor has no clothes, or why the studies, the science, and the medicine we’ve come to love and trust, may not be quite what we think they are, especially when it comes to nutrition.
But then I want to empower us, and talk about what works, why, and what we can do to live happier, healthier, and quite possibly long lives, and even return to perfect health, despite having disease, or even the Big C.
Plus we’ll talk about apples, dairy farms, peanuts, and what in the world four blind men and an elephant have to do with anything.
MORE ON T COLIN CAMPBELL:
For more than 40 years, Dr. T. Colin Campbell has been at the forefront of nutrition research. His legacy, the China Project, is the most comprehensive study of health and nutrition ever conducted. Dr. Campbell is the Jacob Gould Schurman Professor Emeritus of Nutritional Biochemistry at Cornell University. He has more than 70 grant-years of peer-reviewed research funding and authored more than 300 research papers and coauthor of the bestselling the book, “The China Study: Startling Implications for Diet, Weight Loss and Long-term Health.”
“The China Study” gave us a simple but powerful answer: Eat a diet based on whole, plant-based food, and dramatically reduce your risk of a broad spectrum of diseases, including heart disease, obesity, diabetes, and cancer.
In his new book, “Whole,” Dr. Campbell picks up where “The China Study” left off. “The China Study” revealed what we should eat and provided the powerful empirical support for this answer. “Whole” answers the question of why. Why does a whole-food, plant-based diet provide optimal nutrition? “Whole” demonstrates how far the scientific reductionism of the nutrition orthodoxy has gotten offtrack and reveals the elegant wonders of the true holistic workings of nutrition, from the cellular level to the operation of the entire organism. “Whole” is a marvelous journey through cutting-edge thinking on nutrition, led by one of the masters of the science.
