Former President Achieves High School Weight

ROCHESTER, N.Y., July 28, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- In a recent interview with Wolf Blitzer, President Clinton spoke of a "plant-based" diet popularized in The China Study, a popular health book by T. Colin Campbell PhD and Thomas Campbell MD. A far cry from his infamous diet of hamburgers and fries while in office, The China Study advocates a plant-based diet and no dairy.

Sales of the book are approaching the 700,000 mark. A fixture high on the Amazon list, it has been on the overall top 100 best seller list for over a year and on the Health, Mind & Body category for an astonishing 1686+ days http://videostorage.prnewswire.com/storage2/photos/CHINA-STUDY.jpg

Dr. Campbell, Professor Emeritus in Nutritional Biochemistry at Cornell University wrote the China Study after working on The China Project, the most comprehensive study of health and nutrition ever conducted. Thomas Campbell II MD, is in his second year of residency for Family Medicine while T. Colin Campbell maintains a robust lecture schedule.

Drawing on the project findings in rural China, but going far beyond those findings, The China Study details the connection between nutrition and heart disease, diabetes and cancer, among other diseases. The New York Times recognized the study 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."

Unlike numerous fad diets or health plans that enjoy a brief window of success, The China Study has enjoyed a steadily growing audience of individuals concerned with long term health reinforced by the most researched health and diet book ever. T. Colin Campbell has appeared on Larry King, the Bill Maher show and numerous other TV and radio programs along with his busy lecture schedule.
