Disease Proof

Interview With The China Study Author

Last month Steve Prussak of Raw Vegan Radio interviewed Dr. Colin T. Campbell author of The China Study, click here for the audio. The landmark China Study, often referenced on this blog and Dr. Fuhrman’s books, documents the correlation between disease and the consumption of animal products throughout China.

Prussak’s hour-long interview is a must-listen for those interested in learning more about the benefits of a plant-based diet; especially its usage in preventing conditions like heart disease, diabetes, cancer, and obesity. Here are a few quotes to wet your appetite:
“We’ve had inklings and pretty good evidence to show, for example, that consuming vegetables and fruits and grains could help to prevent heart disease. And then it came about that also in the more recent years it was shown also to be associated with prevention of cancer as well.”

“It turns out that plant-based diets not only help to prevent these major diseases, these chronic degenerative diseases like cancer and heart disease, but also consuming that kind of diet, low in fat, low in salt, low in sugar, consuming that kind of diet also can be used to keep under control diabetes, and it can be used to control obesity to a great extent if its done right. Certainly a lot safer way to keep bodyweight down than the really rather silly Atkins nonsense that crept into our vernacular over the last few years.”

“A hundred-percent plant-based diet is the way to go.”
