[Read by Don Hagen]
It seemed to be the eternal question: what should we eat to optimize our nutrition and our health? In 2005, T. Colin Campbell's The China Study answered this question definitively. Backed by the most extensive study of nutrition ever conducted and bolstered by dozens of additional studies and cases, The China Study gave us a simple but powerful answer: eat a diet based on whole, plant-based foods and dramatically reduce your risk of a broad spectrum of diseases, including heart disease, obesity, diabetes, and cancer.
Whole picks up where The China Study left off. While 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 off track 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.
T. COLIN CAMPBELL, Ph.D. has been at the forefront of nutrition research for more than forty years. His legacy, the China Study, is the most comprehensive study of health and nutrition ever conducted. Dr. Campbell is the author of the bestselling book, The China Study, and the Jacob Gould Schurman Professor Emeritus of Nutritional Biochemistry at Cornell University. He has received more than seventy grant-years of peer-reviewed research funding and authored more than three hundred research papers. The China Study was the culmination of a twenty-year partnership of Cornell University, Oxford University, and the Chinese Academy of Preventive Medicine.
