      For Immediate Release: February 1, 2005
      The Peninsula Macrobiotic Community (http://peninsulamacro.org)
      Presents

      CHALLENGING THE STATUS QUO. THE MISUNDERSTOOD ROLE OF NUTRITION IN
      HEALTH, MEDICINE, AND SOCIETY.

      A Lecture by T. Colin Campbell, PhD, Project Director of the China
      Study and the Jacob Gould Schurman Professor Emeritus of Nutritional
      Biochemistry at Cornell University

      Dr. Campbell will draw on his numerous experiences to critique the way
      nutrition is corrupted by special interests and largely ignored by the
      health establishment, despite the fact that nutrition, if practiced
      and taught correctly, has unmatched potential to correct our troubling
      health trends.

      Dr. Campbell, with his son Tom, is the author of the recently
      published book The China Study: The Most Comprehensive Study of
      Nutrition Ever Conducted and the Startling Implications for Diet,
      Weight Loss and Long-Term Health (see http://www.thechinastudy.com).
      The New York Times has recognized the study (known formally as the
      China-Oxford-Cornell Diet and Health Project, a 20 year partnership
      which surveyed diseases and lifestyle factors in rural China and
      Taiwan) as the "Grand Prix of epidemiology." In The China Study, Dr.
      Campbell details the connection between nutrition and heart disease,
      diabetes, and cancer, and also its ability to reduce or reverse the
      risk or effects of these deadly illnesses. For an excerpt from the
      Introduction, visit
      http://www.thechinastudy.com/PDFs/ChinaStudy_Excerpt.pdf .

      For more than 40 years, Dr. Campbell has been active in experimental
      nutrition research and policy development, has authored more than 300
      research papers, and has participated in many national and
      international diet and health policy reports.
