This book is one of the best books I have ever read on nutrition and health. It is completely unbiassed in its approach and has studies to back up all of its findings. It reinforced and expanded on much of what I already knew about how we are manipulated by the food and pharmaceutical industries. We cannot rely on even the government to inform us honestly about what is good for us and bad for us. We must educate ourselves if we want to live a long and healthy and happy life. Here's to all of you who, not only read this book but also implement and follow it's guidelines. May you live a long and happy and healthy life.

I didn't want to read "another diet book." I could literally open a diet book store with all the books I have bought about that subject. But a friend shoved this book into my hands and said I must read it, and so after letting it sit by my bedside for several weeks, I looked to see if I could get it on Audible, and sure enough it was here. I started reading and listening simultaneously . She told me it would change my life, and so it did.
It is not a diet book so much as a treatise on what different foods do for us, or do TO us. It came at the right time for me as I had taken an unexplainable hiatus from pretty much a lifelong habit of eating healthy and my health was starting to suffer.
It gets a little technical in parts but frankly, I've read so many books about food and nutrition that I could cut through all that pretty fast.
So here I am, eating better than I ever have, and planning on doing it for the rest of my life. I don't have that many years left, being as they say, a Senior Citizen, but I don't want to live even one of my remaining days sick. This is the only book I've read on the subject that makes complete sense to me. Dr. Campbell summed up how to do it on one page. It is so easy to follow. If everyone would eat this way and get adequate exercise, illness would be radically reduced on this planet.

I am glad that audible is providing exposure to this vital information. Both scientific and clearly explained.

I found that the level in which the data was explained meant that whether you are a nutrition expert or a layperson the content and topics were relevant and clear.
How has this been kept under wraps for so long? Especially as there are so many high protein diets out there.

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.

Just brilliant. Loved it from start to finish. I wish I knew of it sooner.
