The China Study offers conclusive evidence that a change of diet can dramatically reduce the risks of heart disease, diabetes, and obesity. The book is based on the most comprehensive study of nutrition ever conducted, a 20-year joint project between Cornell University, Oxford University, and the Chinese Academy of Preventive Medicine. The study surveyed the eating habits of 6,500 adults from all over China and Taiwan and found a direct correlation between diet and disease.

Author T. Colin Campbell, the study's project director, provides an intelligent, well-documented analysis of the study's results, an analysis that explodes the most common American dietary myths. In addressing the dietary sources of the most common diseases, including cancer, Campbell unleashes a no-holds-barred attack on the commercial interests that profit by selling the American public unhealthy food. He also shows how readers can use the study's results to change their diets and improve their health. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marsha P | 2/16/2014

    " Very compelling argument for veganism. Some of the science is a little tedious to sift through, but it is easy to glean the bottom line message. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Courtney Burns | 2/7/2014

    " A bit long winded--I just skimmed most of it but the parts that I did skim were very interesting and very convincing. Most of it is stuff I have heard before (animal-based foods=bad, plant-pased foods=good) but some of the research and science was new to me--and like I sad very convincing. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Fiona Mawson | 1/22/2014

    " One of the most important books I've read "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 SarahG | 1/16/2014

    " I had already changed my diet prior to reading this book,it contains amazing information that pretty much confirms I made the right decision. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Emily | 1/13/2014

    " It's basically just a lot of facts and data.....that make total sense! He's not preachy, crazy granola, or an extremeist, just vegan. Love it. Heart disese can be reversed, cancer avoided...guess who's jumping into this boat! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cat | 1/10/2014

    " Very interesting subject. This book highlights the many research studies that point toward a whole foods plant based diet for disease prevention. The writing was very monotonous, but he did add some personal conversations that he has had with people in high positions, who make a lot of decisions about the food that Americans consume, that where eye-opening and also quite terrifying. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Maria Hughes | 1/7/2014

    " This book reinforces that we are what we eat....with a sledgehammer! It made a significant impression on me and my choice to be vegetarian. Understanding how disease is tied to diet is definitely worth the read, even if you are not vegetarian. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Aj | 1/5/2014

    " Very interesting, but I'm not giving up peanut butter! :( "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lee Becknell | 12/29/2013

    " I read this after I saw the movie Forks over Knives and they cited the book many times. I wanted to really like it because I agree with the premiss, however it was totally boring which makes sense since it's a Scientific study and I'm not into science. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jamie Kane | 12/17/2013

    " A must read for anyone who cares about their health and wants to live a long healthy and happy life. I read this book after reading Crazy Sexy Diet and completing a 21-day cleanse with my Yoga group. I know consider myself a plant eater (aka Vegan). "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Autumn | 12/11/2013

    " to be perfectly honest, I only read a portion of this book "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Carolyn | 12/8/2013

    " Thought provoking, but good to read opposing titles to point out the holes in the research. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Elizabeth Engstrom | 6/1/2013

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dayna | 1/27/2012

    " This is one of the most informative books I have read in a long time. I thought it might be too dense and full of scientific language but it was an easy read! Everyone needs to read this book to finally understand health and nutrition. Our minds are so clouded with marketing bullshit. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tcrimmel | 8/7/2011

    " Easy to read and understand. A revolution if people would read it. I will have to follow up on the studies that put this book together. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lisa Brooks | 3/22/2011

    " The studies outlined in this book were fascinating! Diet has more effect than we think. I thought the author tried a little too hard to convince the reader of the efficacy of his studies. However, overall, the book was enlightening and enjoyable to read! "
