The China Study by T. Colin Campbell, PhD, and Thomas M. Campbell II, MD
I have to say this is one of the most challenging and life changing books I have read on health and dietary choices. It will simultaneously horrify you, educate you and inspire you! Everyone I have recommended it to, has had the same response when they talk to me about it afterwards. In fact, in my opinion, it would be exceedingly difficult for any conscientious health seeker to read this book and afterwards stay on their same diet plan (unless it’s already perfect). It is not just a study of dietary choices though. It is one of the most comprehensive studies of global disease causes and risk factors ever conducted. I wish this book could be included in the essential reading literature of every medical training school in the world! Perhaps the reason it is not is because if everyone followed its teaching, we wouldn’t need as many medical establishments or medics! Seriously, if you care about your own health and the health of your loved ones, then this book is an absolute must read!
