A few years ago a book that detailed the connection between nutrition and many of today’s killer diseases was published. For a work of its nature, the publisher expected to sell no more than a few thousand copies then see it fade into obscurity.
Well the publisher was proven wrong and The China Study became an international best-seller and has since moved some 400,000 copies!
Hailed as the “Grand Prix of epidemiology” by The New York Times, its message – that proper nutrition is the way towards long-term health – is one whose time has come.
The VSS team is thoroughly excited to finally have its author, Professor T. Colin Campbell, in Singapore! (You see we tried a few years ago but failed to secure the necessary funding, so you can imagine how delighted we are this time around!)
So we hope you’ll make a date with us on Sat. 18 July 2pm. Ticket prices have been kept very reasonable so that as many as possible will be able to hear this life-changing message.
Please find more details below and we hope to see you on the 18th!
The VSS Team
For more than 40 years, Dr. T. Colin Campbell has been at the forefront of nutrition research. His crowning achievement, the China Project, has been called the most comprehensive study of health and nutrition ever conducted.
The culmination of a 20-year partnership of Cornell University, Oxford University and the Chinese Academy of Preventive Medicine, the study examines more than 350 variables of health and nutrition with surveys from 6,500 adults in more than 2,500 counties across China and Taiwan. The results, summarized in Professor Campbell’s book, The China Study, suggest that:
- a strong link exists between nutrition and heart disease, diabetes, cancer and other life-threatening illnesses
- proper nutrition can have a dramatic effect on reducing and reversing these ailments as well as curbing obesity
- our current eating practices need urgent and dramatic change
