The China Study Myths
Includes Video of Presenter!
Denise Minger: The China Study: Fact or Fallacy? The China Study is often cited as "proof" of the harmfulness of animal products and the superiority of a vegan diet. Yet despite boasting the title "Grand Prix of epidemiology," this large-scale study has been widely misinterpreted and distorted. This lecture examines what the original China Study data really says about diet patterns and health, and also explores the real reasons vegetarian and vegan diets appear beneficial in population studies.
Denise Minger is a Portland-based writer, teacher, and nutrition blogger currently working on her first book, "Death by Food Pyramid." Her website, RawFoodSOS.com, aims to dispel nutrition myths and reexamine conventional beliefs about food. In 2010, Minger's reanalysis of China Study data received widespread publicity in the health community and sparked a public debate with T. Colin Campbell, author of "The China Study."
