American scientist T. Colin Campbell, along with his son Thomas M. Campbell II, studies the relationship between diet and disease, and the book becomes a best seller. We understand why. Father and son try to verify some of the thesis always supported by natural medicine: that genetics is not the predominant factor in the genesis of diseases? That obsessive control of fats, carbohydrates, cholesterol and omega-3 does not result in good health? That breast cancer is related to an altered hormonal situation caused by food; that dairy consumption increases the risk of prostate cancer? That the antioxidants contained in fruits and vegetables are related to a better mental performance in the elderly? That various types of cancer are related to excessive consumption of animal protein?
Reading it critically can be interesting.
