Just wanted to let you all in on a new book that I’ve been reading! I’m a nutrition junkie and I love to read new materials on the variety of diets, effects of diet on health including diseases and cancer and the China Study has been so informative thus far.
Although I am not done with this book yet, it is very scientific based, I think it could be an important book for everyone to read! Basically, the premise of the book is based on numerous (more than 350) studies conducted that show a link between a high protein diet and the incidence of heart disease and cancer. Basically, the higher protein diet one has (meaning meat, not vegetable protein) can make a person more susceptible to cancer or heart disease in terms of progression of the diseases, the growth of tumors, etc. The authors of the book include so many studies, charts, and information that it is a lot to get through. But, before I finish the book, I wanted to give you all a heads up and let you know about this book. I’ve been enjoying it so far although some of it scares me (especially the implications regarding dairy consumption). I’ll give you my full review soon!
-Has anyone read the China Study, if so, what do you think?
