While most people seems understand the phrase:
What You Eat is What You Are
--meaning if one chooses a healthful diet,
one would have a healthy and strong body
and vice versa.
But, very few people truely appreciate,
simply, how a plant-based diet links to good health
actually, how meat brings disasters (sometimes irreversible!)
to our body.
Many a time, under-informed friends of mine,
would ask for the evidences for the above statements.
I usually refer them to
one of the best nutrition books in modern time:
The China Study by Prof Colin Campbell
This is also the book, I routinely quote in my vegetarian seminars;
telling my audiences how too much meat protein could turn on
oncogenes (cancer causing genes) and how milk actually is a devil
instead of the much-portraited calcium-supplementing angel image!
Everyone seriously should have a copy of this book at home,
if one ever serious take good nutrition to their hearts.
