November’s McDougall Program Attendees Meet T. Colin Campbell, PhD

 You Will Have the Same Opportunity February 3 to 5, 2006


"One who cares about choosing the right food to eat, also cares about their own health, the health of their friends and family, the health of their society and even the health of the planet itself."


T. Colin Campbell, PhD
Jacob Gould Schurman Professor Emeritus of Nutritional Biochemistry at Cornell University

Participants of the November 2005 Live-in McDougall Program in Santa Rosa, CA had the special opportunity to meet T. Colin Campbell, PhD, author of the national best-selling book, the China Study, and his wife, Karen Campbell. 

Raised on a dairy farm, Dr. Campbell eventually became the world’s most recognized nutritionist—and an opponent of the big food industries. 

Over many years Dr. Campbell’s research has focused on how eating protein, and especially dairy protein, encourages cancer growth. He has spent decades working on national and international food and health policies, and publishing hundreds of scientific papers. Many years ago Dr. Campbell became aware of the deplorable state of nutrition research and policy making, and the resulting public information in the U.S.  Information produced by the food industry, and their allies in the government, confuses and cheats members of the public out of their health by selling them on the importance and safety of meat and dairy products.


Dr. Campbell is best known for his research in rural China and Taiwan -- research that surveyed a total of 170 villages to determine the relationships of diet and lifestyle to common diseases. This work became known as the China Study (published in 1990), and is regarded as the most comprehensive study of diet, lifestyle and disease ever completed.  The New York Times called the China Study “the Grand Prix of Human Epidemiology.” This landmark research shows that even small increases in the consumption of animal-based foods are associated with an important increased risk of disease.



The recently published book (2004), The China Study, by Dr. Campbell and his son Thomas M. Campbell II, has become an instant national best-seller, and is one of the few books on Dr. McDougall’s highly recommended list.  (Dr. McDougall and Dr. Campbell have been friends and have worked together to change the way people think about food for more than 15 years.)

You have a chance to get to know this nutritional pioneer by spending the weekend of February 3 to 5, 2006 at the McDougall Clinic in Santa Rosa, CA.  In addition to Dr. Campbell, speakers at this “Advanced Study Weekend” will include several other well-known experts, such as Jeffrey Novick, RD, from the Pritikin Program, and, of course, all your favorite members of the McDougall staff will be there.  Cost is $395 pp (includes education and meals—room charges extra).  Sign up by calling (800) 941-7111 or (707) 538-8609 or write
