In 2005, T. Colin Campbell's The China Study showed that a diet based on whole, plant-based foods dramatically reduces your risk of a broad spectrum of diseases, including heart disease, obesity, diabetes, and cancer. Whole picks up where The China Study left off. While The China Study revealed what we should eat and provided the powerful empirical support for this answer, Whole answers the question of why. Why does a whole-food, plant-based diet provide optimal nutrition? Whole demonstrates how far the scientific reductionism of the nutrition orthodoxy has gotten off track and reveals the elegant wonders of the true holistic workings of nutrition, from the cellular level to the operation of the entire organism. Whole is a marvelous journey through cutting-edge thinking on nutrition, led by one of the masters of the science.
