T. Colin Campbell Blogs

T. Colin Campbell, author of the popular The China Study: The Most Comprehensive Study of Nutrition Ever Conducted and the Startling Implications for Diet, Weight Loss and Long-term Health, has started a blog on The Huffington Post.

Here's his first post:

The China Study

I agree with much that he says here. A few choice statements:
"The use of nutrient supplements is not about nutrition but about pharmacology."

"We consume the wrong food, we get sick and we die but not before we consume buckets of pills to pave our way to the promise land, while filling the wallets of those who produce such things."

"Though there are many things to scream about, the one that needs a good loud yell is the so-called debate by politicians about who has the best health care plan. They all talk about who's going to pay the bill as if this is going to solve the problem while none talk seriously about how to improve health."
He doesn't discuss diet specifics here, but it's no secret where Campbell falls on the spectrum of diets. I still hold that there's no one diet that's best for everyone.
