About the Author
For more than 40 years, T. Colin Campbell, PhD, has been at the forefront of nutrition research. His legacy, the China Study, is the most comprehensive study of health and nutrition ever conducted. Dr. Campbell is the author of the bestselling book, The China Study, and the Jacob Gould Schurman Professor Emeritus of Nutritional Biochemistry at Cornell University. He has received more than 70 grant-years of peer-reviewed research funding and authored more than 300 research papers. The China Study was the culmination of a 20-year partnership of Cornell University, Oxford University, and the Chinese Academy of Preventive Medicine. Howard Jacobson, PhD, is an online marketing consultant, health educator, and ecological gardener from Durham, N.C. He earned a Masters of Public Health and Doctor of Health Studies degrees from Temple University, and a BA in History from Princeton. Howard cofounded VitruvianWay.com, an online marketing agency, and is a coauthor of Google AdWords For Dummies. When Howard is not chasing groundhogs away from blueberry bushes or wrestling with Google, he relaxes by playing Ultimate Frisbee and campfire songs from the 1960s. His current life goal is to turn the world into a giant food forest.

Reviewed in Australia on 19 October 2020
I wanted to enjoy another book about sensible, evidence based, nutritional advice. I admit I had some misgivings about the conclusions drawn from Campbell's China Study, and hoped for clarification. What I got was a defensive diatribe against medical, pharmaceutical, political and even scientific interests. I found his 'poor me, noone listens to me' style so annoying I put the book aside. In his favour, he does provide good references (picked to confirm his viewpoint). I will return to the book and compare his conclusions, especially about fats, with other available research evidence.

a classicReviewed in the United Kingdom on 12 September 2016
A classic. Connects all the dots in a meaningful way. My respect for this man has grown ever since reading The China Study. I love the way he encourages any would be young detractors in some of the material on you tube. His reply to Munger is available via Vegsource, always the gent but outclasses her in every way. One of the greatest living nutritional scientists of our era.

Superb bookReviewed in the United Kingdom on 1 May 2016
Reading this book is a liberating experience. It confirms so much of what I felt before when eating food and following traditional guidelines, yet had no basis to articulate my concerns. Strongly recommended.

A Must ReadReviewed in the United Kingdom on 15 April 2018
It's hard to praise this book too much. It is essential reading for anyone genuinely interested in understanding and helping to change the current reductionist health system.

What we eat mattersReviewed in the United Kingdom on 14 April 2015
A book i go back to many times -It looses a little by being a kindle read but it is sound information that makes you think! about the value of food that we eat-i am not a vegetarian or a complete Vegan but have always had issues with Dairy: gives me Migraine-Have been a Paid Cook all my Life and i am a good cook and yet i am still learning about food Nutrition---Our English Diet is not a good one. Yes rethinking the science of Nutrition is a Book we all need to READ.

Huge wake up!Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 5 May 2016
A refreshing insight into how we are increasingly blinded by science into following like sheep ( or in this case lemmings). This book will inevitably filter through to change my diet, outlook and questioning of all I read and hear in the media and encourage me to think for myself.
