The Health Report That Could Save Your Life

Dr. Colin Campbell Lecture

Even today, as we have access to more information than we’ve had before, heart disease has never been greater. There are many diet plans out there, yet we Americans are more obese than ever. We have diabetes at unusual levels. What is it then that we are doing wrong? What are we missing? Dr. T. Colin Campbell has done extensive research and he thinks he has some of the the answers.

Casein is the name for a family of related phosphoproteins.

The China Study is a book by T. Colin Campbell, Jacob Gould Schurman Professor Emeritus of Nutritional Biochemistry at Cornell University, and his son Thomas M. Campbell II, a physician. It was first published in the United States in January 2005 and had sold over one million copies as of October 2013, making it one of America’s best-selling books about nutrition.


The doctor believe’s that animal protein is not needed as much as tradition tells us. A plant-based diet may be more healthy in the long run. It may be a provocative statement, but he suggests that cancer could be more to do with lifestyle and diet, rather than genetics alone.

It’s seems odd, but what the doctor is suggesting is that too much animal-based protein is actually harmful to the body. This includes meat and dairy products. While agriculture constantly promotes drinking quantities of milk, the studies report the opposite. According to the data, increased milk consumption raises the risk of osteoporosis, instead of decreasing the risks.

Plant-based foods tend to have the right amount of protein and beneficial antioxidants. The doctor thinks that plant-based foods prevent and in some cases cures many diseases.

I am not promoting vegetarianism, but I do feel that these doctors are steering Americans in the right direction and they offer credible options. Nutrition is little understood by the public in general. It is not a part of public policy and is often overshadowed by politics.
