Science Makes It Clear, If You Want Good Health, Eat Plant-Based Foods

"Almost all of us in the United States will die of diseases of affluence. In our China Study we saw that nutrition has a very strong effect on these diseases. Plant-based foods are linked to lower blood cholesterol; animal-based foods are linked to higher blood cholesterol. Animal-based foods are linked to higher breast cancer rates; plant-based foods are linked to lower rates. Fiber and antioxidants from plants are linked to a lower risk of cancers of the digestive tract. Plant-based diets and active lifestyles result in a healthy weight, yet permit people to become big and strong. seemed that science was painting a clear, consistent picture: we can minimize our risk of contracting deadly diseases just by eating the right food."
