T. Colin Campbell Petitions Obama On Health Care

Below are excerpts from a recent blog entry by T. Colin Campbell, author of The China Study: The Most Comprehensive Study of Nutrition Ever Conducted. (He wrote this in October, before the election.)

Dr. Campbell is of the opinion that food, not drugs, should be the principal means to health:
"Drug activity is biologically targeted and opposes the natural order of things. Nutrition is biologically comprehensive and supports the natural order of things."

"The drug strategy depends on a yearning for acquisition of capital by the few. A nutrition strategy depends on a yearning for acquisition of health by the many."
- Health Care Made Real, Obama's Real Change, T. Colin Campbell, October 21, 2008.
What food? In this article Dr. Campbell champions the benefits of "reasonably intact and minimally processed plant-based foods." 1
1 In my mind, a "plant-based diet" is not a euphemism for a vegan diet. It refers to emphasis.
