Details: Product Description 2020 Foreword Indie Award Winner in the “Health” Category From the coauthor of The China Study and author of the New York Times bestselling follow-up, Whole Despite extensive research and overwhelming public information on nutrition and health science, we are more confused than ever—about the foods we eat, what good nutrition looks like, and what it can do for our health. In The Future of Nutrition, T. Colin Campbell cuts through the noise with an in-depth analysis of our historical relationship to the food we eat, the source of our present information overload, and what our current path means for the future—both for individual health and society as a whole. In these pages, Campbell takes on the institution of nutrition itself, unpacking: • Why the institutional emphasis on individual nutrients (instead of whole foods) as a means to explain nutrition has had catastrophic consequences • How our reverence for "high quality" animal protein has distorted our understanding of cholesterol, saturated fat, unsaturated fat, environmental carcinogens, and more • Why mainstream food and nutrient recommendations and public policy favor corporate interests over that of personal and planetary health • How we can ensure that public nutrition literacy can prevent and treat personal illness more effectively and economically 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. Review “This brilliant book delivers the normally elusive motivation to adjust stubborn eating habits for the better. Dramatic changes to health and fitness followed for me and, eventually, reluctant family members. One of whom recovered from cancer. None of the most famous and trendy books on diet and nutrition I had read previously came close to delivering such a lasting impact. I feel like Dr. Campbell just released us from a prison of ill health and ignorance into which we had unwittingly locked ourselves. Sixty years of the most sophisticated research ever conducted places Dr. Campbell firmly at the top of the credibility pyramid. With a direct yet dignified voice, he also answers the burning question: Why have we never heard this before? The answer will astonish as well as encourage every reader.” —Paul F. Sontrop, former agribusiness professional "Just finished this book and can't stop talking about it to whomever will listen to me. It is fantastic. Colin Campbell's latest masterpiece on whole food, plant-based (WFPB) nutrition is a must read for anybody interested in understanding health, cancer, and how a proven lifestyle has become so controversial. Campbell sets the tone for how WFPB can guide us toward optimal living." —David Feinberg, MD, head of Google Health "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, bestselling author of How Not to Die "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 and wants a unique behind-the-scenes understanding of a foe-ridden field through the eyes of a pioneer." —William W. Li, MD, New York Times bestselling author of Eat to Beat Disease and president and medical director of the Angiogenesis Foundation "Dr. Campbell, the pioneering researcher whose earlier published findings in The China Study on the benefits of plant-based versus animal-based foods ‘fired the shot heard round the world,' does it again in The Future of Nutrition. This book is a must-read for many reasons, the main one being that our health an
