About the Book
Book description

Dr. T. Colin Campbell, the author of The China Study and New York Times bestseller Whole, returns with a book examining the shortcomings and confusion within the nutrition industry and outlining steps to improve. In Colin Campbell's newest book, he takes on the institution of nutrition: the history of how we got locked into focusing on “disease care” over health care; the widespread impact of our reverence of animal protein on our interpretation of scientific evidence; the way even well-meaning organizations can limit what science is and is not taken seriously; and what we can do to ensure the future of nutrition is different than its past. The Future of Nutrition offers a fascinating deep-dive behind the curtain of the field of nutrition—with implications both for our health and for the practice of science itself. ebook icon Audio book icon
