More than 30 years ago, nutrition researcher T. Colin Campbell and his team at Cornell University, in partnership with teams in China and England, embarked upon 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 Campbell'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.

If you could sum up The China Study, Revised and Expanded Edition in three words, what would they be?

Startling research results

What was one of the most memorable moments of The China Study, Revised and Expanded Edition?

I'm amazed by the research results gathered from so many reputable research organisations and that this has not been more widely disseminated to the public and, more surprisingly, that the results have not made it into public policy after so very long.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

It's a long book so I couldn't listen to it all in one sitting but I was very eager to get back to it each time.

Any additional comments?

Due to the heavy focus on research results, it's not the kind of book I would have the patience to trudge through reading, but I thoroughly enjoyed it as an audio book.
