Summary

Summary

Why, despite the many advances in science and technology over the past few decades, does our health only seem to be getting worse? Why, despite so much time and energy spent studying the foods we eat, are we more confused than ever about nutrition—what good nutrition looks like, and what it can do for our health?

Colin Campbell’s first book, The China Study—with 3 million copies sold (and growing!)—laid out the exhaustive evidence for the whole foods, plant-based diet as the healthiest way to eat. His New York Times bestselling follow-up, Whole, addressed the widespread scientific emphasis on reductionism that has kept our focus on the discrete behaviors of individual vitamins and nutrients in the foods we eat, rather than diet’s synergistic effects on health.

Now, in The Future of Nutrition: An Insider’s Look at the Science, Why We Keep Getting It Wrong, and How to Start Getting It Right, Campbell takes on the institution of nutrition itself: the history of how we got locked in to focusing on “disease care” over health care; the widespread impact of our reverence of animal protein on our interpretation of scientific evidence; the way even well-meaning organizations can limit what science is and is not taken seriously; and what we can do to ensure the future of nutrition is different than its past.

The Future of Nutrition offers a fascinating deep-dive behind the curtain of the field of nutrition—with implications both for our health and for the practice of science itself.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“After reading this book, the truth of wholism and living at one with nature became much more than well-documented science. Everything came together as a whole and made music. This book had a huge impact on me. I think it will change many lives for the better.” Daniel Domb, cello soloist with the New York Philharmonic, Boston Pops, Chicago Symphony, and National Symphony
“Our health and our lives depend on us acting on the tipping point evidence that Dr. Campbell provides. He exposes the bribery and graft that occurs hidden from us and uses our own tax dollars to deliberately mislead us, the American public…All is not lost yet, but only if enough of us implement the calls to action that Dr. Campbell outlines.” Ruth Heidrich, PhD, WFPB Ironman triathlete and author of A Race For Life
“The Future of Nutrition is Campbell’s magnum opus and will leave you rethinking how you discuss healthy eating, what you hear about dietary guidelines, and what’s in your next bite. This is a must-read for everyone who is serious about nutrition.” William W. Li, MD, New York Times bestselling author and president and medical director of the Angiogenesis Foundation
“Dr. Campbell serves up a sweeping historical survey of the literature on diet and health, brilliantly exploring the institutional biases that have long confused consumers and subverted the science as to the power of evidence-based nutrition to prevent and treat disease. Couldn’t put the book down!” Michael Greger, MD, New York Times bestselling author
“T. Colin Campbell’s latest masterpiece on whole food, plant-based nutrition is a must-read for anybody interested in understanding health, cancer, and how a proven lifestyle has become so controversial.” David Feinberg, MD, head of Google Health
