Ginger "The inescapable fact is that certain people are making an awful lot of money today selling foods that are unhealthy. They want you to keep eating the foods they sell, even though doing so degrades your life. They want you docile, compliant and ignorant. They do not want you informed, active and passionately alive, and they are quite willing to spend billions of dollars annually to accomplish their goals." This quote was at the forward of the book and Doctor Campbell went on to support every word in his analysis of the China Study. There are so many culprits in the food industry, but the biggest issue is our gullible behavior. "More people die because of the way they eat than by tobacco use, accidents or any other lifestyle or environmental factor." If we are to believe all the claims... animal protein is the worst possible thing we can eat, it is the cause of common cancers: Breast, Prostrate, Large Bowel (Colon and Rectal) It is the cause of out of control cholesterol which has become the broken hearts of the American lifestyle. Bottom line... this was a book filled with facts to support a plant based diet. A good read filled with supporting details through the entire read.
