T. Colin Campbell

Maybe you have heard of him, maybe you recognize the names of his books, or have seen his videos or movies. He is the legend, T. Colin Campbell and he is a nutrition guru!

From Wikipedia.org:

T. Colin Campbell is an American biochemist who specializes in the effects of nutrition on long-term health. He is the Jacob Gould Schurman Professor Emeritus of Nutritional Biochemistry at Cornell University, the author of over 300 research papers, and the co-author of The China Study (2004), one of America's best-selling books about nutrition.[1] He also starred in the 2011 American documentary, Forks Over Knives.
Campbell was one of the lead scientists in the 1980s of the China-Oxford–Cornell study on diet and disease, set up in 1983 by Cornell University, the University of Oxford, and the Chinese Academy of Preventive Medicine to explore the relationship between nutrition and cancer, heart and metabolic diseases. The study was described by The New York Times as "the Grand Prix of epidemiology."[2]

Through his books The China Study and Whole, countless articles, and interviews Dr. Campbell has offered more than sufficient hands-on data that a plant-based diet offers many health benefits and aids in curing and proventing many of the diseases that plague Western culture today.  According to Dr. Campbell's research, diet and nutrition plays a huge part in conquering and provention of diabetes, thyroid diseases, obesity, heart conditions, cancers, infectious diseases, renal failure/diseases, and even some psychiatric conditions.

eCornell is currently offering a certification in Plant-Based Nutrition through the T. Colin Campbell Foundation, with the intent on introducing medical professionals, as well as the public, to the benefits of nutrition on health and disease prevention.
