This exhaustive presentation of the findings from The China Study conclusively demonstrates the link between nutrition and heart disease, diabetes and cancer. Referred to as the “Grand Prix of epidemiology” by the New York Times, this study reveals the dramatic effect proper nutrition can have on reducing and reversing these ailments as well as obesity and calls into question the practices of many of the current dietary programs, such as the Atkins diet, that enjoy widespread popularity in the western world.
