Has anyone read the China Study? It¬ís a fairly new book and if your still thinking that eating flesh foods, (those of you who go off raw and decide you need eggs and cheese) and that you need more protein or are concerned about the protein your getting you really may want to read this book. It¬ís a hard book to skim through because if you don¬ít read the studies you don¬ít get the full effect, but its not a difficult book to read. Although this is stuff that most of us know, the man who wrote it is one of the leading health researchers and was the scientist who discovered aflatoxin (the toxin found in peanuts). If your new to all this and still wondering about protein or for those of you who already know this, its just really one of the best books ive read since John Robbins Diet for a New America, it just puts it into perspective and gives you the facts and information to back up what you may already know. You can find it anywhere, its pretty popular right now.
Thanks a bunch for passing this along, Alissa. :) I'm adding it to my wish list. I've been trying to read as much as I can about things like this.
Does Campbell mention if the Casein fed to the rats was raw? And was it a Casein derivitive or actual milk? I ask this because my studys demonstarte this to be a HUGE factor as to the health of anything. Cook something or isolate something and then load an animal up with it and of course it will be bad for them!
I cant help but point out that baby rats seem to do just fine feeding on their mothers natural milk, which presumably has casein balanced within the milk, and they grow up just fine.

He is much against testing anything in isolation. He's against supplements because they cause more harm than good, beta carotene, as an example. He is for whole plant-based foods. The whole is better than the separate sum of the parts.
