letter: "I am writing on behalf of The Campbell Foundation in support
of the work of T. Colin Campbell, Ph.D., Jacob Gould Schurman
Professor Emeritus at Cornell University, researcher in nutritional
biochemistry, and author of The China Study. The China Study
documents the findings from The China Project, the most comprehensive
research study ever conducted on the relationship between diet and
"The Campbell Foundation is initiating a new project designed to
chronicle the stories of individuals who attribute their success in
arresting, reversing and/or living with serious disease, particularly
cancer, cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes or MS at least in
part to the consumption of a plant-based diet. The project focuses on
these diseases, but is not limited to them. Any account of treating
disease with diet is welcomed.
"All of Dr. Campbell's research points to the benefits of a plant-
based diet and the dangers of the over consumption of animal protein,
including red meat, pork, poultry, fish, and dairy. To support Dr.
Campbell's work, we endeavor to create a library of accurate and
personal accounts by those who have used plant-based nutrition to
inhibit disease. These accounts will be aggregated and made available
to the public to serve as a reference material for patients,
physicians, researchers and anyone else who may need it. As well as
to create this reference resource, the intention is also to collect a
critical mass of information that may pave the way for further study.
The more information we are able to gather, the greater impact we
"We seek to gather tens of thousands of accounts. If you had a
positive experience using plant-based diet as medicine, your story
would prove invaluable to our project. If you know of others with
compelling stories regarding foods' use as medicine, please share
this letter with them. Should you be willing to participate, I invite
you to contact me without delay. Please contact Micaela Cook at
Thank you for your participation."
