The China Study: The Most Comprehensive Study of Nutrition Ever Conducted and the Startling Implications for Diet, Weight Loss and Long-term Health

Copertina anteriore
Wakefield Press, 2007 - 417 pagine
THE CHINA STUDY is not a diet book. It is a guide that cuts through the haze of misinformation and delivers an insightful message to anyone living with or at risk of cancer, diabetes, heart disease, obesity, Alzheimer's disease and/or osteoporosis. Part medical thriller, part governmental expose and part nutrition manual, THE CHINA STUDY is a page-turner that will change the way we eat, and ultimately, change our lives.
