This afternoon I realized something. I have been really confused lately regarding what is and what isn't good and healthy to eat. The narrative of diet and nutrition in this world and especially plentiful, overweight America presents so many opposing stories as truth. So I went to the book store today with the idea that I can start to correct my education on nutrition. I have been following my version of the ketogenic diet, and I wanted a book on it, so I didn't need to make stuff up based on a compelling documentary. No dice. There were no books on the keto diet, but what attracted my eyes was The China Study by Colin Campbell, a PhD who directed the most comprehensive study of diet, lifestyle, and disease ever done with humans in the history of biomedical research.

I have read up through the introduction and I gather that the thesis is going to be the following: major diseases can be prevented and reversed and longevity increased by massively reducing animal protein intake and increasing plant based foods.

I will keep you updated as I go along. It is a perfect season for fresh vegetables and fruits...
