The idea of eating Plant-Based Foods for good health has been known for many centuries. In the The China Study: The Most Comprehensive Study of Nutrition Ever Conducted And the Startling Implications for Diet, Weight Loss, And Long-term Health, Dr. Campbell, cites writings from Socrates, which paraphrased say that “consuming animal foods will lead to a luxurious city of sickness and disease, where lawyers and doctors will become the norm”
Plato, also said, “We will eat animals at our own peril.” Even Hippocrates, the Father of Western Medicine said that a plant based diet was the way to prevent and treat disease. Campbell goes on to describe more historical knowledge of diet being an extremely important factor in disease prevention and overall good health. And he also asks how could we as a society forget or suppress these facts?
The book is a great read and has very convincing studies and evidence and testimonials about the drug companies and the government agencies working in tandem to manipulate and deceive the public. Because of their greed, power and control issues we have been given false and misleading information for years.
Essentially, the drug companies want us to be in the dark since they can only make money on the hospitals and drugs that only treat our symptoms and they can’t make any money telling us to eat our greens & fruits to get us back to a healthy lifestyle.
The book has many scary scenarios of cover ups and plots worthy of a Hollywood thriller and you’ll go away after reading this book, knowing that they are all true.
