Al fine di usufruire dei contenuti multimediali di questo eBook in formato epub3 si consiglia la lettura e l'ascolto su computer e/o tablet. Una nuova versione di The China Study! Una versione digitale in cui è possibile leggere il testo integrale del libro e anche vedere e ascoltare il dott. T. Colin Campbell stesso che ne spiega alcune parti fondamentali. Un “mix” tra libro e parti del Dvd pensato per venire incontro alle esigenze di chi ama sia leggere ma anche vedere e ascoltare applicando quanto la moderna tecnologia ora permette di fare. In questo nuovo formato, è possibile scorrere l'intero libro e ascoltare T. Colin Campbell che puntualizza su parecchi argomenti tra cui: - le proteine - l'atlante del cancro - gli otto principi dell'alimentazione corretta - gli integratori vitaminici - malattie della povertà e del benessere - livelli di colesterolo e malattia - grassi e cancro al seno - cancro alla prostata - la visione olistica del nostro benessere I contenuti sono quelli che hanno reso The China Study il più importante studio epidemiologico mai realizzato, durato 27 anni e realizzato in collaborazione con varie università. T. Colin Campbell, assieme al figlio Thomas M. Campbell II, mette in relazione alimentazione e salute, giungendo a conclusioni sorprendenti. Alcune delle tesi fondamentali da sempre sostenute dalla medicina naturale sono verificate e testate: • la genetica non è il fattore predominante nella genesi delle malattie • il controllo ossessivo di grassi, carboidrati, colesterolo e omega-3 non dà come risultato una buona salute • farmaci e chirurgia non curano le malattie di cui siamo affetti • i medici non sanno esattamente cosa consigliare per rimanere in buona salute • solo con la dieta e lo stile di vita si può guarire dalle malattie cardiache • il cancro al seno è correlato a una situazione ormonale alterata che è determinata dal cibo che mangiamo • il consumo di latticini aumenta il rischio di cancro alla prostata • gli antiossidanti contenuti in frutta e vegetali sono correlati a una migliore performance mentale nella terza età • vari tipi di cancro sono correlati al consumo eccessivo di proteine animali The China Study è una ricerca approfondita, non una semplice teoria, le cui conclusioni, se applicate, salverebbero la vita a milioni di persone.

For decades, that question has fascinated a small circle of impassioned doctors and researchers—and now, their life-changing research is making headlines in the hit documentary Forks Over Knives. Their answer? Eat a whole-foods, plant-based diet—it could save your life. It may overturn most of the diet advice you’ve heard—but the experts behind Forks Over Knives aren’t afraid to make waves.

Now, as Forks Over Knives is introducing more people than ever before to the plant-based way to health, this accessible guide provides the information you need to adopt and maintain a plant-based diet.
