The China Study is the famous best seller by T. Colin Campbell, who studies the correlation of diseases and food, particularly due to the assumption of animal protein.
This book presents the results of a 27-year epidemiological study, conducted by a team of scientists led by Campell, and divided into two phases: the first began in 1983, the second in 1989.
In the first phase were collected data on food habits as well as analysis of urine and blood of 6,500 adult residents in 138 villages and 65 counties, the second data were related to 10,200 adults across 170 villages in rural China and Taiwan.
What came out in summary is that in the analyzed areas the incidence of diseases such as breast, colon and lung cancer, diabetes, osteoporosis, stroke, hypertension and cardiovascular disease was very low.
These diseases were virtually unknown in rural areas of China where they consumed is an average of 4 grams of animal protein per day, otherwise the situation for those who lived in the city where the so-called "diseases of affluence" were far more widespread.
What is the reason? Who lived in Beijing or Shanghai had a diet richer in animal protein and very low in vegetables.
Hence reports the 8 pillars of diet according to Dr. Campbell, with tips and interesting statements.
