Book: THE CHINA STUDY by T. Colin Campbell & Thomas M. Campbell

In the early 1970s, the premier of China, Chen EnLai, was dying of cancer.  At the terminal stage of his illness, he instigated a survey of cancers, heart disease and infectious diseases throughout China.  As a result, a comprehensive map of China’s health was developed.  Some regions showed cancer rates over 100 times greater than the counties with the lowest rates.

To study these results, a team of scientists from China, Cornell and Oxford Universities conducted a study of 6,500 people in 65 different counties over a period of 20 years.  They looked at over 360 different health, lifestyle and nutrition factors and found over 8,000 significant correlations.

Some comparisons with Chinese and American diets are worthwhile examining – Chinese consume much more calories but they weigh much less.  They eat more fibre with much less fat and protein.  Animal sources for the Chinese diet is less than one tenth of the American diet.  Despite that Chinese people consume twice as much iron.

The  China Project is one of the most comprehensive study of health and nutrition ever conducted.  Colin Campbell's  conclusion:

 The vast majority of all cancers, cardiovascular diseases, autoimmune diseases and other forms of degenerative illness can be prevented simply by adopting a whole food plant-based diet.
