The China Study is an extremely popular book that came out in 2005 by professor T.Colin Campbell. The book contains Campbell’s conclusions about his research into the relationhip between food and health.
Here’s where my China Study Criticism begins. You can sum the book up as saying that protein is bad, animal protein is horrible for you, vegans eat the best and you can live forever and get every vitamin possible from plants.
Vegans and vegetarians use this book to show that their ways are healthier than every other possible way to live. The only people that really argue for The China Study are vegans.
The book uses hand picked, one sided data to prove the authors point. Little known fact, Campbell is associated with Physicians for Responsible Medicine, which is a vegan group!
Anyone with a research background knows that Campbell is just spinning the research to support his personal beliefs.For example, Campbell goes on and on about the health benefits of Vitamin D, yet he tells you that you shouldn’t eat foods that contain any cholesterol. Well you need cholesterol to synthesize Vitamin D.
Another China Study Criticism that I have is the suggestion that we all should consume high carbohydrate diets. High carbohydrate diets have been linked to multiple diseases from type 2 diabetes to high blood pressure to heart attacks to cancer. So how he can recommend such a low protein, high carbohydrate diet is beyond me.
Listen, as I’ve said before. I believe in eating grass fed beef. I 100% trust and enjoy grass fed beef and meat from La Cense, which was the 1st USDA approved grass fed program to use non hormone treated cattle, no antibiotics, no animal by-products or growth hormone.
