New York Times

Everyone in the field of nutrition science stands on the shoulders of T. Colin Campbell, who is one of the giants in the field. This is one of the most important books about nutrition ever written – reading it may save your life.”

Dean Ornish, M.D., Founder and President,

Preventive Medicine Research Institute

Clinical Professor of Medicine, University of California, San Francisco

Author, Dr. Dean Ornish’s Program for Reversing Heart Diseaseand Love & Survival

Written with candor, courage and clarity, and with intellectual honesty and profound insight, this compelling book is destined to be one of the most important books of the decade. If implemented, The China Study would usher in a new era of contagious health.”

Hans Diehl, DrHSc, MPH, FACN

Lifestyle Medicine Institute

Best-selling Author and Founder of CHIP

Colin Campbell’s The China Study is an important and readable book. With his son Tom, he discusses studies of the relationship between diet and disease. His conclusions about the harmful consequences of animal proteins are startling. Equally surprising has been his difficulty in bringing the results to the public. It is a story which needs to be heard.”

Robert C. Richardson, Ph.D., Nobel Laureate,

E.R. Newman Professor of Physics and Vice Provost (Research), Cornell University

The China Study is the most convincing evidence yet on preventing heart disease, cancer and other Western diseases by dietary means. It is the book of choice both for economically developed countries and for countries undergoing rapid economical transition and lifestyle change.”

Junshi Chen, M.D., Ph.D., Senior Research Professor

Institute of Nutrition and Food Safety,

Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention

The China Study is extraordinarily helpful, superbly written and profoundly important. Dr. Campbell’s work is revolutionary in its implications and spectacular in its clarity. I learned an immense amount from this brave and wise book. If you want to eat bacon and eggs for breakfast and then take cholesterol-lowering medication, that’s your right. But if you want to truly take charge of your health, read The China Study and do it soon! If you heed the counsel of this outstanding guide, your body will thank you every day for the rest of your life.”

John Robbins, author

Diet for a New America and The Food Revolution

The China Study is a well-documented analysis of the fallacies of the modern diet, lifestyle and medicine and the quick-fix approach that often fails. The lessons from China provide compelling rationale for a plant-based diet to promote health and reduce the risk of the diseases of affluence.”

Sushma Palmer, Ph.D., Former Executive Director

Food and Nutrition Board, U.S. National Academy of Sciences

All concerned with the obesity epidemic, their own health and the staggering environmental and social impacts of the Western diet will find wise and practical solutions in Campbell’s The China Study.

Robert Goodland, Lead Advisor on the Environment

The World Bank Group (1978-2001)

The China Study is the account of a ground-breaking research study that provides the answers long sought by physicians, scientists and health-conscious readers. Based on painstaking investigations over many years, it unearths surprising answers to the most important nutritional questions of our time: What really causes cancer? How can we extend our lives? What will turn around the obesity epidemic? The China Study quickly and easily dispenses with fad diets, relying on solid and convincing evidence. Clearly and beautifully written by one of the world’s most respected nutrition authorities, The China Studyrepresents a major turning point in our understanding of health.”

Neal Barnard, M.D., President

Physician’s Committee for Responsible Medicine

The China Study is a rare treat. Finally, a world-renowned nutritional scholar has explained the truth about diet and health in a way that everyone can easily understand – a startling truth that everyone needs to know. In this superb volume, Dr. Campbell has distilled, with his son Tom, for us the wisdom of his brilliant career. If you feel any confusion about how to find the healthiest path for yourself and your family, you will find precious answers in The China Study. Don’t miss it.”

Douglas J. Lisle, Ph.D., and Alan Goldhamer, D.C.

Authors of The Pleasure Trap: Mastering the Hidden Force

That Undermines Health and Happiness

So many diet and health books contain conflicting advice, but most have one thing in common – an agenda to sell something. Dr. Campbell and his son Tom’s only agenda is truth. As a distinguished professor at Cornell University, Dr. Campbell is the Einstein of nutrition. The China Study is based on hardcore scientific research, not the rank speculation of a Zone, Atkins, SugarBusters or any other current fad. Dr. Campbell lays out his lifetime of research in an accessible, entertaining way. Read this book and you will know why.”

Jeff Nelson, President, VegSource.com

Colin Campbell’s book The China Study is a moving and insightful history of the struggle – still ongoing – to understand and explain the vital connection between our health and what we eat. Dr. Campbell knows this subject from the inside: he has pioneered the investigation of the diet-cancer link since the days of the seminal China Study, the NAS report, Diet, Nutrition and Cancer,and AICR’s expert panel report, Food, Nutrition and the Prevention of Cancer: A Global Perspective. Today, AICR advocates a predominantly plant-based diet for lower cancer risk because of the great work Dr. Campbell and just a few other visionaries began twenty-five years ago.”

Marilyn Gentry, President

American Institute for Cancer Research

The China Study gives critical, life-saving nutritional information for every health-seeker in America. But it is much more: Dr. Campbell’s expose of the research and medical establishment makes this book a fascinating read and one that could change the future for all of us. Every health care provider and researcher in the world must read it.”

Joel Fuhrman, M.D., Author Eat To Live

If you’re looking to enhance your health, performance and your success read The China Study immediately. Finally, scientifically valid guidance on how much protein we need and where we should get it. The impact of these findings is enormous.”

John Allen Mollenhauer, Founder, My Trainer.com
