Plant Powered Metro New York invites you to read and discuss The China Study by T. Colin Campbell, PhD, and Thomas Campbell, MD (revised and expanded edition, 2016). Later in the hour, we will be joined live by Dr. Campbell senior for a Q&A, as we mark his 90th birthday and his tremendous contributions to the field of nutrition science!

The science is clear. The results are unmistakable. You can dramatically reduce your risk of cancer, heart disease, and diabetes just by changing your diet. More than 30 years ago, nutrition researcher T. Colin Campbell and his team at Cornell, in partnership with teams in China and England, embarked upon the China Project, the most comprehensive study ever undertaken of the relationship between diet and the risk of developing disease. What they found, when combined with findings in Dr. Campbell’s laboratory, opened their eyes to the dangers of a diet high in animal protein and the unparalleled health benefits of a whole foods, plant-based diet.

Our book club is facilitated by Lynn Diamond, PPMNY's Associate Network Director, this month together with Leah Stolar, PPMNY Lifestyle Mentor, who will share a brief review of the book’s contents to fuel our discussion. We can encourage you to read as much of the book as possible to contribute to a lively conversation!

Event access is by donation or free to anyone unable to contribute. Please choose the option that fits you best and join us! Registrants will receive a Zoom link on the day of the event.
