There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later. Colon Campbell, in his book WHOLE, provides information, based on his extensive nutrition research, what to eat to be in good health. He believes that a diet of whole; plant- based foods WFPB , rather than animal-based diet, will keep us healthy; longevity is in our hands.
In fact, I haven't even graduated from Elementary School. Based on my empirical life, I believe that eating whole plant-based foods is essential and even critical to stay healthy. Under the Nazi occupation of Poland in , at the age of 13, I was forbidden to attend school. I was put behind barbed wire in forced labor and concentration camps, where I was beaten, wounded, and starved, for three years.
I never received any medical treatment. The German doctors, instead of treating the ill captives, ill-treated them. Some physical and mental scars stay for the rest of my life.
In May , when the Russian Army liberated me I weighed 80 pounds, a skeleton. The Russian military doctors gave me a thorough examination and predicted my life expectancy to be no more than two years.
I was a teenager then. Seventy years later, I am here at the age of eighty-nine. For many years after the war, I was a sickly young man. The most troubling ailment, for many years, was my inability to digest common staples of food such as meat and dairy products.
My stomach rejected and ejected the meals that I prepared or was served. Many Holocaust survivors died soon after the war when it became difficult, and even harmful, for their digestive system to assimilate the normal food their bodies were weaned off during the war. Their metabolism, attuned to calories a day, could not handle an intake of "normal" food. In the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp, fourteen thousand survivors died shortly after having been liberated by the British Army. For many years, I had been seeking and getting medical treatment.
Different diagnoses and a variety of medications were prescribed which did not provide much relief. In a coworker, Jacob Grabois, told me: Perhaps if you adopt my lifestyle it might help you, as it has helped me. That garden yielded a crop of almost all the basic foods that the Grabois family needed.
No fertilizers were used; just big compost dumpster, at one corner of the garden, contributed to the fertile soil. While savoring a delicious vegetarian meal, Jacob Grabois told me what has motivated him to embrace a healthy life style. As a young student in France, he became very concerned about his health and his life expectancy.
Since his father and his siblings died of cancer, He fretted that the same fate awaited him. He studied the causes of diseases and eventually adopted a whole food plant- based diet. I embraced Grabois' diet and it seems to have worked well, for me. At the age of 43, I replaced meat, fish, and most dairy products with whole food plant-based diet.
My health had drastically improved. Currently, I don't take any prescription drugs. This might be one reason that I am still here. Side effects of prescription drugs kill more people than traffic accidents. Like Dr Campbell, I had no financial interest; I just felt a moral obligation to share my life story; narrated in my autobiography From a Name to a Number. I learn from reading what I can from whom I can. I am a vivid evidence that WFPB is indeed the optimal human diet; it corroborates the validity of Dr.
Keep on mind, that the world's farmers produce enough calories today to feed nine billion people a healthy, 2. More than two-thirds of the world's agricultural land is used to grow feed for livestock. You might also consider what Albert Einstein had said: The gist of T. Colin Campbell's new book, Whole, is this. Eight years later, why hasn't that information and perspective broken through to more widespread awareness?
Why hasn't your doctor or dietitian told you about it, or heard of it, or given it serious consideration? Why haven't school lunches changed across the board? Three p-words permeate Campbell's thesis here: Power and profits drive the big businesses of livestock and processed food, Campbell argues.
More controversially perhaps, Campbell also argues that profit motives fuel the chase for pills, patents, and procedures in "health care" or as Campbell calls it, the "disease care" industries of pharmaceuticals, hospitals, and medical practitioners. Registered dietitians may be compromised too, as their influential trade association, the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, receives major funding from the junk food business including Coca-Cola, Hershey, PepsiCo, Mars, and Unilever that covers several major ice cream brands , as well as the National Cattlemen's Beef Association and the National Dairy Council, among others.
That's a big argument, and Campbell states it earnestly. He looks at, "all the political maneuvering and financial pressure Don't the health sciences uphold an objective space where research like Campbell's can get a proper hearing among fair-minded truth seekers?
Here Campbell covers a lot of ground. Whole unpacks Campbell's frustration with food sciences that drive for answers in small elements of biochemistry, often dismissing or putting up stiff resistance to studies at the level of major dietary patterns, lifestyles, and community-level differences in health outcomes p.
Campbell knows from personal experience. He has contributed to food science both at the minute level of biochemistry, and also at the lifestyle and community levels like a medical sociologist would do, as The China Study makes clear.
Campbell's account in Whole may serve as vivid material for science studies. This is a field where sociologists and philosophers grapple with questions of how human foibles, careerism, and powerful interests sometimes distort and inhibit the advancement of science, and how new theories occasionally burst through to scientific acceptance despite formidable resistance. Campbell deploys the concept of scientific "paradigms" in food studies. Scientists cluster their investigations and share basic assumptions within a broad current of thought, or paradigm, the thinking goes, for as long as the prevailing paradigm seems productive, until one day the paradigm runs out of answers and gives way to challengers.
In our time, Campbell suggests, the paradigm in nutrition is that animal foods are healthy sources of key nutrients that call for microbiological research; and the paradigm in medicine is that disease is to be cured through pills and procedures that call for biochemistry in pharmaceuticals, biotechnological engineering, and surgical protocols.
Colin Campbell goes further, intimating that scientific grant makers should promote a more appropriate distribution of financial resources in health-related studies, in order to breed a research environment that would admit a variety of approaches, even if they contradict the main thrust p.
The China Study spells out the many health benefits of whole foods, plant-based eating in Campbell's view; and what is the research that brought him to believe that; and what's wrong with animal foods. Or, for a captivating show of it on your tv screen, you can see T. Eat fresh fruits and vegetables, preferably organic, in salads and soups, or lightly steamed. Use whole grains and nuts that have been prepared by soaking, sprouting or sour leavening to neutralize phytic acid and other anti-nutrients.
Include enzyme-enhanced lacto-fermented vegetables, fruits, beverages and condiments in your diet on a regular basis. Prepare homemade meat stocks from the bones of chicken, beef, lamb or fish and use liberally in soups and sauces. Use herb teas and coffee substitutes in moderation. Use filtered water for cooking and drinking. Use unrefined Celtic sea salt and a variety of herbs and spices for food interest and appetite stimulation.
Make your own salad dressing using either fresh lemon juice or raw vinegar, and extra virgin olive oil or sesame oil or a mix of the two. Grind the seeds and eat within 15min as they start to become rancid oxidized at that time limit.
Use natural sweeteners in moderation, such as raw honey, maple syrup, molasses, dehydrated cane sugar juice [rapadura, sucanat sugar cane natural date sugar ground dates ] and stevia powder. Use only unpasteurized wine or beer in strict moderation with meals. Cook only in stainless steel, cast iron, glass or good quality enamel. Use only natural supplements. Get plenty of sleep, exercise and natural light. Think positive thoughts and minimize stress. Don't eat commercially processed foods such as cookies, cakes, crackers, TV dinners, soft drinks, packaged sauce mixes, etc.
Avoid all refined sweeteners such as sugar, dextrose, glucose and high fructose corn syrup. Avoid white flour, white flour products and white rice. Avoid all hydrogenated or partially hydrogenated fats and oils.
Avoid all vegetable oils made from soy, corn, safflower, canola or cottonseed. Do not use polyunsaturated oils for cooking, sauteing or baking. Do not practice veganism; animal products provide vital nutrients not found in plant foods.

Avoid rancid and improperly prepared seeds, nuts and grains found in granolas, quick rise breads and extruded breakfast cereals, as they block mineral absorption and cause intestinal distress.
Avoid canned, sprayed, waxed, bioengineered or irradiated fruits and vegetables. Avoid artificial food additives, especially MSG, hydrolyzed vegetable protein and aspartame, which are neurotoxins. Most soups, sauce and broth mixes and commercial condiments contain MSG, even if not so labeled. Avoid caffeine-containing beverages such as coffee, tea and soft drinks. For teabags, only seconds is necessary.
Avoid aluminum-containing foods such as commercial salt, baking powder and antacids. Do not use aluminum cookware or aluminum-containing deodorants. Do not drink fluoridated water. Avoid synthetic vitamins and foods containing them.
Do not drink distilled liquors. Do not use a microwave oven. It is our processed, sugar laden, non-nutritive, chemically loaded modern diet that is at the root of much of our modern diseases.
It can be reversed and you can do it yourself. Read this book, save your own health and life. I did, my husbands heart disease reversed, it works. In , I read a book that changed everything I thought I knew about nutrition - for all time; it is THE book of causative factors.
This past week, 9 years later, I decided, prompted by some discussions online and here, to re-read it: It's even more timely and prescient than ever. I was just as compelled then as now - more so, perhaps, after 10 years of reading and research of my own. I easily read pages in 4 nights. Price was a dentist who graduated from the University of Michigan dental school in As he got into the first two decades of his practice in the 20th century, he became increasingly alarmed at people with bad teeth, poorly formed palates, cavities, and deformations of the jaw - and with that, serious health problems.
He and his wife, beginning in , traveled around the world to 14 different countries to find how the health, elsewhere, corresponded with mainly modern Americans.
As well as studying the kept skulls of ancient Peruvians - nearly perfect palates and teeth. However, in those groups, where certain segments obtained "modern foods of commerce" - white flour, sugar, jams, vegetable fats, canned goods - their health suffered, tuberculosis became rampant, as well as serious birth defects, cavities, deformed jaws, crooked teeth, and a host of other degenerative conditions. There are hundreds of photos throughout, and the difference between those who ate their native foods, and those who had manufactured foods, is truly, jaw-dropping shocking.
Price documented his findings rigorously, thoroughly, with percentages and averages noted throughout. He also conducted numerous tests, curing several people of their health problems just by a change in food. The tests on vitamin A, D, butter, and minerals reveal some crucial findings and results. Animals with no vitamin A were born blind, or disfigured. There are several X-rays and photos that show the outcome of his tests.
He notes conditions of soils, contents and values of whole grains, grasses and how they affect the final outcome - results of the consumption of the food in humans and animals. What it all boils down to is chemistry. The closer a food is to its natural origins and source, the better the health. The further away from its origins it is, processing, poor nutrients in growth cycles, denaturing, the worse the effect.
In some of these cultures, no two young people were allowed to procreate unless they had undergone 6 months of concentrated nutrition to maximize the health of the conceived child. Price makes constant note of the "native wisdom" that had been passed down from generation to generation. He presents not just a few token cases but hundreds of them, across several thousands of miles - and it is startling how consistent the findings are from place to place. Though it was written in the s, it is nonetheless eerily prophetic of the ominous trends that punctuate modern technology, namely the changing nature of how humans and animals eat.
There is a "Twilight Zone" sense of foreboding as Dr. Price's research and findings unfold, chapter after chapter. What this book amounts to is a convincing, virtual warning on what is happening to the planet, to its food in all forms, and the humans and animals that inhabit it. I have no reservations about saying that this may be the most crucial piece of work on nutrition to ever have been written.
This book is a spectacular read; I can't even begin to cover the astonishing breadth and scope of it. It is also controversial: Though it does deal primarily with Dr. Price's research, findings and discoveries on nutrition and physical degeneration, there are so many rewards otherwise. This is a first-rate travelogue, superb cultural anthropological study, and an impressively thorough analysis of human behaviors. Moreover, Price is a wonderful writer, matter-of-factly genteel, dispassionate and duly concerned all at once.
There is a compassionate, keen kindness in his own being, and the generosity of spirit in wanting to do for the common good is evident throughout. See all reviews. See all customer images.
