ePUB The China Study The Most Comprehensive Study of Nutrition í multi channel.co

More than thirty years ago nutrition researcher T Colin Campbell and his team at Cornell in partnership with teams in China and England embarked upon the China Study the most comprehensive study ever undertaken of the relationship between diet and the risk of developing disease What they found when combined with findings in Colin's laboratory opened their eyes to the dangers of a diet high in animal protein and the unparalleled health benefits of a whole foods plant based dietIn 2005 Colin and his son Tom now a physician shared those findings with the world in The China Study hailed as one of the most important books about diet and health ever writtenFeaturing brand new content this heavily expanded edition of Colin and Tom's groundbreaking book includes the latest undeniable evidence of the power of a plant based diet plus updated information about the changing medical system and how patients stand to benefit from a surging interest in plant based nutritionThe China Study Updated and Expanded Edition presents a clear and concise message of hope as it dispels a multitude of health myths and misinformation The basic message is clear The key to a long healthy life lies in three things breakfast lunch and dinner

    UGH I totally loved this book as of page 150 or so At the beginning you find out about this really interesting research that showed that feeding milk protein casein to rats encouraged them to develop cancerous growths after the rats had been exposed to a carcinogen called aflatoxin and the cancer barely grew at all in rats that were fed low amounts 5% of calories of casein The cancer also barely grew at all in rats that were fed low to medium to high amounts of PLANT protein wheat protein and soy protein were tested I thought they were going to do a lot tests to find out the effects of OTHER animal proteins besides casein what about whey protein fish protein beef protein chicken protein etc and I thought they would do tests with other carcinogens besides aflatoxin Since the results were so dramatic you'd think all these other studies would have been the natural offshoot But Campbell doesn't ever mention these follow up studies which surely must have happened Or if they didn't happen then why not? It doesn't make any sense that scientists would not pursue these very provocative and promising research questions I am perplexed by this Either Campbell left the information about the follow up studies out of his book or they simply didn't happen If it was the science medicine government industry complex that BLOCKED any further research then Campbell had every opportunity to explain that but he didn't Also it makes no sense because there are plenty of organizations like Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine and PETA that would have the money to sponsor the research OK maybe not PETA as they wouldn't approve of doing experiments on rats but these research conclusions are just way too groundbreaking You know Diets Rich in Dairy Products Accelerate Cancer Growth and Plant Based Diets Prohibit Cancer Growth There are so many scientists who have already made their money and don't need to be slaves to the power establishment and who would LOVE to be responsible for conclusive research like this they could win the Nobel Prize for sure So either the follow up research was done and it wasn't conclusive which would explain why Campbell left those details out or well it just makes no sense why no one would have investigated it further UGHThe book is okay in general especially for people who want reassurance that a vegan diet is healthy Also reading this book helped encourage me to eat healthier whole foods not so much refined sugar and added oils I'm very thankful for that I also found out that my cholesterol at 167 is not that great and I need to get it below 150 But I got rather annoyed with the author because he keeps saying that a whole foods plant based diet vegan is the HEALTHIEST diet and he didn't give any scientific evidence for that I'm vegan and I definitely wanted to see that scientific evidence but it wasn't there And note that unlike other people who got bored and skimmed through parts of it I actually read every word of every page all the way through from beginning to end including the appendices If I had only flipped around in the book and saw him claiming that he has already proven in other chapters that the vegan diet is best I might think OH that's probably true I haven't read the whole thing 100% Well I DID read the whole thing 100% and he did not prove that a vegan diet is best What he showed is some correlations between cancer rates and heart disease rates in various countries the animal protein and animal fat you eat the cancer and heart disease you get OKAY point taken but it doesn't show that eating a vegan whole foods diet is any better than say a 95% plant based 5% animal based diet In fact even in the studies with rats they had almost no cancer growth when they had only 5% of their calories from milk protein casein They only got the high amounts of cancer growth when it went up to 10% and 20% So it looks like low amounts of dairy products are actually OKAY according to the rat studies I just hate that Campbell goes from showing us these really interesting studies and then takes a leap to say that 100% plant based diet is the bestHe also provides as evidence some studies by Esseltyn and others who REVERSED heart disease by putting people on restricted diets This is good news and throws egg in the faces of all the stick in the mud doctors who think drugs and surgery are the only ways to treat disease OK cool But I noted that most of the restricted diets weren't totally vegan the people were allowed small amounts of meat and dairy every day In cases like this Campbell always said something like Well if the results were that good imagine how good the results would be if the diet was 100% vegan Well that's just imagining Where is the evidence that the 100% vegan diet is better than a mostly plant based diet? I don't think there is any otherwise he would have shown it to us So what gives him the right to go around saying that a 100% vegan diet is the best? And acting like he has the research to back it up? And probably fooling some people in the process? Ooooh It makes me angryNow for my most obvious gripe I thought the book was going to be mainly about all these exciting results of the China Study since it says THE CHINA STUDY in big letters on the front One would think As I read the first 140 pages which are NOT about the China study I simply thought I was being given the background info as surely we were being led up to a big discussion about THE CHINA STUDY So I was shocked by the time I get to the 200's pages and we were moving on to other topics It was then that I checked the Table of Contents and came to a shocking realization the 15 pages where the author talks a little bit about the China Study in the mid 100's pages somewhere I don't have the book with me is ALL YOU'RE GONNA GET What the heck??? Even in those 15 pages he actually doesn't even stay focused on the topic of THE CHINA STUDY He spends quite a few paragraphs within those 15 pages discussing Esseltyn and Atkins diet and other stuff I couldn't believe it Also when I read about the procedure of the China Study it just doesn't sound very good They pooled together all the blood from people in 2 cities in each county and based their statistics off of that So even though they took blood samples from 100's of people they only ended up with about 65 data points to compare This is because they couldn't get enough blood from individuals to test all the factors that they wanted So if they took all the vials of blood and mixed them they got a combined sample of several pints of blood from people from that county And that was enough blood to do 100s of tests But if there were some people in the county who ate a lot of animal products and others who ate mostly plants and you got survey data from all those people well now you have to average their eating habits and make a composite average diet for someone in that county You can't compare the disease rates of people who ate well in the county vs people who ate poorly All you can do is compare one county's pooled blood sample to another county's So maybe the reason why T Colin Campbell doesn't talk much about the China study in his book entitled THE CHINA STUDY is that the results there are not very conclusive or persuasive I was thinking I should read Junshi's original research published in 1990 but I googled it and found a summary of its shortcomings here above web site seems to be all about busting the myths and fanaticism of vegan and raw food diets etc so be aware of that Nonetheless the points it brings up are the same ones I was thinking of as I read about the techniques employed for the China study research Oh I found another review that sums up many of the criticisms I havehttpwwwwestonapriceorgbookrevieThis review actually brings up another important point Campbell makes a big deal about how dairy is linked to autoimmune diseases but what about the links to wheat and gluten? Unfortunately Campbell generalizes that if milk protein is bad then all animal protein is bad whereas he generally assumes that plant protein is goodOh the guy who wrote that review above is Chris Masterjohn he's the author of a fanatical PRO CHOLESTEROL site So that guy is biased also His web site says that low cholesterol diets are bland and boring As if???? Masterjohn's obvious bias on his web site his review of The China Study seems fair and even handed He gives 48 references in his review although I haven't checked them Hey I'm just trying to do a quick write up The gist of his review agrees with my feeling as I read the China Study so despite my skepticism regarding Masterjohn's underlying agenda of promoting cholesterol consumption I think the information he provided is probably correct Taken with a grain of salt of courseAnyway back to T Colin Campbell's book It turned me off that Campbell seemed so biased toward a 100% vegan diet he SAID his beliefs were based on science without providing the scientific evidence He STARTED to provide compelling research and then he stopped It's a total bummerAnd I'm disappointed that the book says it's all about the China Study when it is not And maybe it's because the China Study wasn't really worth writing a book aboutHowever I give it 3 stars instead of 2 because that stuff at the beginning is really interesting And it did get me motivated to eat healthier I am on a quest to lose 10 pounds in 10 weeks and get my cholesterol to under 150 And it's due in large part to the motivational and compelling parts in the first half of this bookStill I might put it down to two stars It was a pretty big disappointment And for the Vegan Book Club I know you said you wanted to do this for a future book selection I've got no opinion either way since I've already read it now I suggest checking the links above and deciding for yourselves if you want this or a different book While I do have my criticisms it certainly would make for a good discussion
