The China Study by T. Colin Campbell and Thomas M. Campbell II

If you want to know more about how the food you eat affects your health, you should read this book.

If you're even remotely concerned about your own health and that of your loved ones, you should read this book.

If you're tired of feeling tired, and sick of feeling sick, you should read this book.

This is one of the best books I've ever read in regards to diet and health. I've been involved in the health industry for almost ten years, and have seen many cases of seriously sick people. Even knowing what I knew then — that fruits and vegetables were good for you, and seeing this knowledge applied to heal the afflicted right before my eyes — never stopped me from eating animal foods.

These ailing individuals are people with diabetes and cancer, people who lost their sight and their hearing, people with heart diseases and obesity. I've seen them all being healed with the power of this knowledge. They've regained their sight, their hearing, they're more active and slim, they're cancer-free, and don't have to use as much insulin as before.

And still I did not change my eating habits, because I didn't see myself having any serious health problems that would require me to watch what I eat.

But after reading The China Study, which examines more than 350 variables of health and nutrition with surveys from 6,500 adults in more than 2,500 counties across China and Taiwan, I decided that I want to change my lifestyle. I want to be healthier, I want to feel better, I want to be more active.

I realized that eating well is important for everyone, not just people who are sick. The China Study makes a convincing link between proper nutrition and health as it persuasively questions the effectiveness of other dietary programs such as the Atkins diet. It also made me realize how much more important it is to prevent diseases, and maintain a healthy body which won't break down as you get older.

We all accept that we're going to face senility, absent-mindedness, and have a weaker body as we get older, but the truth is, we don't have to. We don't have to face pain and helplessness. We can all live a good, long life and be healthy enough to enjoy all it has to offer.

Read the book, you'll be glad you did.
