The China Study

The China Study




T Colin Campbell, PhD, and Thomas M Campbell, II

Reviewed by Jerome Stenehjem, MD

Fall 2006 - Volume 10 Number 3

Out of a morass of conflicting nutritional studies and popular books comes The China Study, a finely woven tapestry of scientific inquiry and personal experiences of a highly respected NIH-funded scientist. This impressive work by T Colin Campbell, PhD, and his son Thomas provides chilling insights into how our nation has arrived in the third millennium with some of the highest rates of obesity, cancer, and heart disease in the world. Many of the revelations in this book could serve as an indictment of the medical profession but it becomes clear that there is plenty of blame to go around.
