" There are virtually no nutrients in animal-based foods that are not better provided by plants. Protein, fiber, vitamins, minerals—you name it, they've got it, along with major health benefits." The China Study ( Science based medicine) T. Campbell, PHD.
Have you read the China study?
Anyone who is thinking of going plant based or just needs more scientific evidence that diet dramatically reduces disease should read this.
I read it about six years ago and it was a pivotal moment for me turning vegetarian.
The book tells the story of the premier of China, who in the early 1970's was dying of cancer. In the grips of this terminal disease, he initiated a nationwide survey to collect information and a gain a better understanding of it. It was to be one of the largest comprehensive studies of human nutrition ever conducted, a monumental survey of death rates for 12 different kinds of cancer for more than 880 million citizens in 2,400 Chinese counties with data collected over a span of 20 years. The result was a colour coded map of where certain types of cancer were high and where they were non existent.
“People who ate the most animal-based foods got the most chronic disease. People who ate the most plant-based foods were the healthiest,” China study author, who grew up on a dairy farm.
The China Study examines the link between the consumption of animal products (including dairy) and chronic illnesses such as coronary heart disease, diabetes, breast cancer, prostate cancer, and bowel cancer.
In The China Study, T. Colin Campbell, PhD, and his son, Thomas M. Campbell II, MD, discuss and analyse the results from the study (and other influential nutrition research) and recommend their protocol for the best diet for long-term health.
Dr. Campbell says that in multiple, peer-reviewed animal studies, researchers discovered that they could actually turn the growth of cancer cells on and off by raising and lowering doses of casein, the main protein found in cow’s milk.
Food for thought...
In terms of skincare
(I am no Doctor but talk from experience), I personally believe meat and dairy are acidic and cause inflammatory skin reactions such as Acne and Eczema. I have seen a real transformation in my customers who have opted for a more alkaline diet in conjunction with natural, organic and healing skincare products.
