More Information

The Pine Street Foundation is pleased to welcome Dr. T. Colin Campbell to Marin County to speak about his landmark China Study, one of the most comprehensive studies of nutrition ever conducted. Dr. Campbell's research findings have startling implications for diet, weight loss, and long-term health. The lecture will be facilitated by Dr. Lawrence H. Kushi, Associate Director for Etiology and Prevention Research at Kaiser Permanente. A question and answer period will follow.

ABOUT THE CHINA STUDY
The China Study conclusively demonstrates the link between nutrition and heart disease, diabetes, and cancer. Referred to as the "Grand Prix of epidemiology" by The New York Times, this study examines more than 350 variables of health and nutrition with surveys from 6,500 adults in 65 counties, representing 2,500 counties across rural China and Taiwan. While revealing that proper nutrition can have a dramatic effect on reducing and reversing heart disease, diabetes, cancer, and obesity, this study calls into question the practices of many of the current dietary programs, such as the Atkins diet, that enjoy widespread popularity in the West. The impact of the politics of nutrition and the efforts by food industry lobbyists on the creation and dissemination of public information on nutrition will also be discussed.

T. Colin Campbell, PhD, is the project director of the China-Oxford-Cornell Diet and Health Project (the China Study), a 20-year study of nutrition and health. He is a Jacob Gould Schurman Professor Emeritus of nutritional biochemistry at Cornell University.
