The Future of Nutrition: An Insider's Look at the Science... | 15 CE
From the coauthor of The China Study and author of the New York Times bestselling follow-up, Whole.
T. Colin Campbell cuts through the noise with an in-depth analysis of our historical relationship to the food we eat, the source of our present information overload, and what our current path means for the future—both for individual health and society as a whole.
Author Dr. Campbell takes on the institution of nutrition itself, unpacking:
Why the institutional emphasis on individual nutrients (instead of whole foods) as a means to explain nutrition has had catastrophic consequences
How our reverence for “high quality” animal protein has distorted our understanding of cholesterol, saturated fat, unsaturated fat, environmental carcinogens, and more
Why mainstream food and nutrient recommendations and public policy favor corporate interests over that of personal and planetary health
How we can ensure that public nutrition literacy can prevent and treat personal illness more effectively and economically
The Future of Nutrition offers a fascinating deep-dive behind the curtain of the field of nutrition—with implications both for our health and for the practice of science itself.
