While it might not qualify as light summer reading, The China Study is definitely a page-turner. Dr. T. Colin Campbell, Professor Emeritus of Nutritional Biochemistry at Cornell University, presents the exhaustive findings of his research, examining more than 350 variables of health and nutrition. With surveys from 6,500 adults in 65 counties, representing 2,500 counties across rural China and Taiwan, his study aims to connect the dots between nutrition and heart disease, diabetes and cancer. Campbell concludes that proper nutrition can have a dramatic effect on reducing and reversing these ailments as well as obesity. In addition, he includes a whole section entitled "Why You Haven't Heard This Before," which throws light on the tremendous impact that special interest groups have on the information that makes it into the public realm.
