“The Whole: Rethinking the Science of Nutrition”

I started reading Colin Campbell’s “The Whole: Rethinking the Science of Nutrition”. I previously read and was mesmerized by his, “The China Study”, it was great. I recommend both. I know “The China Study” is a Bad name for a book, but the content is fantastic.

 

With regard to “The Whole”, I have only read the first section, however it is clear he is very upset with the system and wants the truth to be known. He is upset because he says money interests have silenced the words of science and the strong and valid findings  showing nutrition is more powerful than any other method to promote health and treat disease. He says nutrition is being silenced because it does not support our established way of understanding how things work or our current paradigm. He makes it clear that nutrition findings are being challenged because it may do harm to how many make money today.

I am sharing a powerful part of the beginning. To start out he explains that if Whole Food Plant Based (WFPB) nutrition were a pill, what he says could be could be called “Eunutria”, its label would have this powerful list of scientifically proven effects:

  • Prevents 95% of all cancers including those caused by environmental toxins
  • Prevents nearly all heart attacks and strokes
  • Reverses even severe heart disease
  • Prevents and reverses type 2 diabetes so quickly and profoundly  that after 3 days it is dangerous to keep using insulin
  • Gets you to your ideal weight in a healthy sustainable way
  • Eliminates most migraines, acne, colds and flue, chronic pain and intestinal distress
  • Improves energy
  • Cures Erectile dysfunction
  • Slows and possibly reverses global warming
  • Reduces groundwater contamination
  • Ends the need for deforestation
  • Shuts down factory farms
  • Reduces malnutrition and dislocation among worlds poorest

It is results and information like this that has encouraged and motivated me to do my best to adopt a Whole Food Plant Based eating plan. By eating this way I can feel good about my choices because it is a way to use selfish, selfless, synergy to practice paneugenesis which means I contribute to comprehensive improvements by creating interactions so everyone and everything benefits.

Not only do I help everyone and everything benefit, it provides me with a good feeling for  doing something good, gives me energy and vitality and also helps prevent things I want to avoid. Why would I want to make any other choice with regard to food? What do you think? Let me know how you help everyone and everything benefit.

Be Well’r,
