In The China Study, Dr. T. Colin Campbell details the connection between nutrition and heart disease, diabetes, and cancer. This Internationally Best Selling book also examines the source of nutritional confusion produced by powerful lobbies, government entities, and opportunistic scientists.
The New York Times has recognised the study the book is named after as the “Grand Prix of epidemiology” and the “most comprehensive large study ever undertaken of the relationship between diet and the risk of developing disease.”

This groundbreaking work, voted one of the top ten books of 2010 by VegNews Magazine, offers an absorbing look at why and how humans can so wholeheartedly devote themselves to certain animals and then allow others to suffer needlessly, especially those slaughtered for consumption.
Social psychologist Melanie Joy explores the many ways we numb ourselves and disconnect from our natural empathy for farmed animals. She coins the term "carnism" to describe the belief system that has conditioned us to eat certain animals and not others.
Controversial and challenging, this book will change the way you think about food forever.
The “sequel” to The China Study, this engaging book is equally as easy to read, and focuses on why eating whole plant foods has the beneficial effects that it does on our bodies, the science behind it, and the authors' musings on the industries that refuse to admit it.
Highly recommended for anyone who has already read The China Study or is just wanting more information on getting all the nutrients your body needs in the easiest way possible.
The first book to explore the unseen economic forces that drive our animal food system, and the strange ways these forces affect our spending, eating, health, prosperity, and longevity.
Among other things, consumers have largely lost the ability to decide for ourselves what—and how much—to eat. Instead, those decisions are made for us by meat and dairy producers who control our buying choices with artificially low prices, misleading messaging, and heavy control over legislation and regulation.
Learn what makes this bizarre system tick and how it can be fixed in this fascinating book.
Recommended for anyone wanting to know more about how these huge industries affect our lives, or anyone into finance or economics.

From the physician behind the wildly popular website NutritionFacts.org, this book reveals the groundbreaking scientific evidence behind the only diet proven to prevent and reverse many of the causes of disease-related death, a whole-foods vegan diet.
It examines the fifteen top causes of premature death in America and explains how nutritional and lifestyle interventions can trump prescription pills and other pharmaceutical and surgical approaches.
Full of practical, actionable advice and surprising, cutting-edge nutritional science, this book is the perfect reference guide for new or seasoned vegans who take their health seriously.
Many vegans can become frustrated and struggle to feel connected with meat eaters, and meat eaters can feel disconnected from vegans and vegetarians whose beliefs they don't fully understand and whose frustration may spill over into their interactions.
The good news is that relationship and communication breakdown among vegans and meat eaters is not inevitable, and it is reversible.
Recommended for anyone living with or in close relationships with non-vegans.
