The China Study: Revised and Expanded Edition: The Most Comprehensive Study of Nutrition Ever Conducted and the Startling Implications for Diet, Weight Loss, and Long-Term Health
The revised and expanded edition of the bestseller that changed millions of lives
The science is clear. The results are unmistakable.
You can dramatically reduce your risk of cancer, heart disease, and diabetes just by changing your diet.
More than 30 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 diet.
In 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 written.
Featuring 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 nutrition.
The China Study—Revised 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.

So when the media reports a newly found chemical carcinogen, the public takes
notice and reacts quickly. Some carcinogens cause outright panic. Such was the
case a few years ago with Alar, a chemical that was routinely sprayed on apples
amounts may be formed in nature, as is the case with aflatoxin. These
carcinogens genetically transform, or mutate, normal cells into cancer-prone cells
. A mutation involves permanent alteration of the genes of the cell, with damage
to its DNA.
Foci development, initially determined by the amount of the carcinogen exposure,
is actually controlled far more by dietary protein consumed during promotion.
Protein during promotion trumps the carcinogen, regardless of initial exposure.
