I tend to believe him, but it's just too depressing reading about all the foods that are not good for me but that I love. Maybe another time I'll get through it.

Thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. Was a bit surprised at how little time the China Study itself makes up of the book (a short section midway through). Sure, there are a few things that I wonder about - like why is a vegan diet any better than a low animal product diet? I think his broad points are accurate and I agree with his assessment of "fad" diets. He keeps things simple and bangs the drum (perhaps too much!) on the whole-food, plant based diet. Worth a read and a good book to have in your bookshelf.… (mais)

This book had some interesting information, but he seemed to harp on the same points many different ways, such as how the powers that be in food and other commercial enterprises are so money hungry that they are harming us for their profit. I got the message early on and really didn't need the numerous examples and restatements. Other than that, he made some good points.

This book was very good; it cited its sources, was written so that the information was easy to understand, and has caused me to begin eliminating dairy and eggs from my diet (I was already vegetarian). I hope to live a long, healthy life, and I think the points made in here are well-documented (shame on selfish food and health businesses) and make a lot of sense!
