The China Study - de relatie tussen
dierlijk eiwit en onze welvaartziekten
De meest uitgebreide studie ooit gedaan
naar het ontstaan en de preventie van kanker, hart & vaatziekten, diabetes en vele
andere ziektes en gebreken. Het boek dat antwoord geeft op brandende vragen van mensen die
een ziekte vrezen en hoe men dit kan voorkomen. In de zeventiger jaren werden met behulp
van 650.000 mensen in kaart gebracht welke kankersoorten er heersten onder 880 miljoen
mensen in China. Aan de hand van deze gegevens startte men in 1983 met de China Study in
65 districten van China.

Dierlijk dieet (zuivel/kanker)
Celebrated Cornell professor T. Colin
Campbell discusses his decades of NIH-funded research which show that meat and dairy
promote cancer growth and a plant-based (vegan) diet can prevent and even reverse cancer.
Covers the Oxford-Cornell-China Study which the New York Times called "the Grand Prix
of epidemiological studies."
Special dierlijke eiwit arm dieet
ipv medicijnen bij suikerziekte
Canadese en Amerikaanse onderzoekers van de
Universiteit van Toronto, George Washington en Noord Carolina hebben 99 personen gevraagd
mee te doen aan een onderzoek (1).
Groep 1 at geen vlees, vis, gevogelte,
zeevruchten, eieren, melk of overige melkprodukten.
Groep 2 hield zich aan een dieet,
voorgeschreven door de Amerikaanse Diabetes Associatie.
Na 22 weken kon 43 % van Groep 1 de
hoeveelheid medicijnen (waaronder insuline) verminderen of zelfs stoppen. De
cholesterolwaarden waren lager en er was sprake van een gewichtsverlies van 6,5 kilo. Van
Groep 2 was dit maar 26 % en een gewichtsverlies van 3,1 kilo.
De onderzoekers denken dat dit positieve
resultaat van Groep 1 ontstaat door het innemen van minder ijzer en diverse soorten vet.
Groep 1 bevestigt dat deze manier van eten gemakkelijk vol te houden is; caloriŽn hoeven
niet geteld te worden. De onderzoekers hopen dan ook dat diabetici eerst gaan proberen hun
eetgewoonten te veranderen in plaats van direct medicijnen te gaan gebruiken.

Data China Studie
Data van de China Studie waaruit een
relatie blijkt tussen inname van dierlijk eiwit en kanker/hart- en vaatziekten
The data from the China Project suggest
that what we have come to consider as "normal" illnesses of aging are really not
normal. In fact, these findings indicate that the vast majority perhaps 80 to 90%of all
cancers, cardiovascular diseases, and other forms of degenerative illness can be
prevented, at least until very old age, simply by adopting a plant-based diet.
In China, we found people whose diets
ranged from being very low in fat (6% of calories) and almost entirely made up of foods of
plant origin, to diets that contained significant amounts of animal products and even much
higher amounts of fat (24% of calories). Dietary protein also varies across China. When we
compare people on diets that are virtually nil in animal protein with those for whom
animal protein is upwards of 20 to 30% of the total protein intake, the cholesterol levels
go, on average, from around 90 mg per 100 ml to about 170 mg per 100 ml (see chart,
below). Such an increase in cholesterol is associated with the emergence of the cancers
and heart disease that increasingly plague the world's developed nations
The China Study: the Most
Comprehensive Study of Nutrition
Ever Conducted and the Startling Implications For Diet, Weight Loss and Long-Term Health
The study involved 65 counties in 24
different provinces of China. Most of the counties were in rural areas where people lived
in the same area all their lives and ate food produced locally. Those living in rural
communities and consuming mostly plant protein had fewer chronic diseases that those who
lived in communities where more animal protein is available.
In rural China 9 to 10% of total calories
comes from protein, yet only 10% of that amount is derived from animal foods. In contrast
the American diet features 15 to 16% of calories from protein with 80% of that from animal
foods. The rural Chinese were less likely to die from the diseases of affluence (cancer,
diabetes, and heart disease) than diseases of poverty (pneumonia, parasitic disease,
tuberculosis, diseases associated with pregnancy, and others). Campbell says that diseases
of affluence might be more appropriately named "diseases of nutritional
extravagance" because they are tied into eating habits.
The dairy industry would definitely like to
silence Campbell who has announced results from an earlier study he conducted in the
Philippines that showed children consuming high protein diets were most likely to get
liver cancer. Included in this high protein diet were milk products.
China Study II: Switch to Western diet may
bring Western-type diseases
The long-term health benefits to Chinese
and other Asian people who have traditionally existed on a primarily plant-based diet
might be lost as more people in Asia switch to a Western-style diet that is rich in
That conclusion is being drawn by some
scientists after reviewing results from the latest survey of diets, lifestyles and disease
mortality among Chinese populations -- this one comparing current dietary habits in Taiwan
and mainland China -- and measuring them against a time when fewer meat and dairy products
were available in rural China.
Plasma cholesterol in the 90-170 milligrams
per deciliter range is positively associated with most cancer mortality rates. Plasma
cholesterol is positively associated with animal protein intake and inversely associated
with plant protein intake.
Breast cancer is associated with dietary fat
(which is associated with animal protein intake) and inversely with age at menarche (women
who reach puberty at younger ages have a greater risk of breast cancer).
For those at risk for liver cancer (for
example, because of chronic infection with hepatitis B virus) increasing intakes of
animal-based foods and/or increasing concentrations of plasma cholesterol are associated
with a higher disease risk.
Cardiovascular diseases are associated with
lower intakes of green vegetables and higher concentrations of apo-B (a form of so-called
bad blood cholesterol) which is associated with increasing intakes of animal protein and
decreasing intakes of plant protein.
Colorectal cancers are consistently
inversely associated with intakes of 14 different dietary fiber fractions (although only
one is statistically significant). Stomach cancer is inversely associated with green
vegetable intake and plasma concentrations of beta-carotene and vitamin C obtained only
from plant-based foods.
Western-type diseases, in the aggregate, are
highly significantly correlated with increasing concentrations of plasma cholesterol,
which are associated in turn with increasing intakes of animal-based foods.
Analyses of data from the China studies by
his collaborators and others, Campbell told the epidemiology symposium, is leading to
policy recommendations. He mentioned three:
The greater the variety of plant-based foods
in the diet, the greater the benefit. Variety insures broader coverage of known and
unknown nutrient needs.
Provided there is plant food variety,
quality and quantity, a healthful and nutritionally complete diet can be attained without
The closer the food is to its native state
-- with minimal heating, salting and processing -- the greater will be the benefit.
Even today, as the low-carb craze sweeps
the nation, two-thirds of adults are still obese and children are being diagnosed with
Type II diabetes, typically an adult disease, at an alarming rate. If
were eating healthier, why are Americans stricken with heart disease as much as we
were 30 years ago?
In The China Study, T. Colin Campbell,
Ph.D., details the connection between nutrition and heart disease, diabetes and cancer.
The report also examines the source of nutritional confusion produced by powerful lobbies,
government entities, and opportunistic scientists. The New York Times has recognized the
study (China-Oxford-Cornell Diet and Health Project) as the Grand Prix of
epidemiology and the most comprehensive large study ever undertaken of the
relationship between diet and the risk of developing disease.
After a long career in research and
policy-making, I have decided to step out of the system. I have decided to
disclose why Americans are so confused, said Dr. Campbell. As a taxpayer who
foots the bill for research and health policy in America, you deserve to know that many of
the common notions you have been told about food, health and disease are wrong.
I propose to do nothing less than redefine what we think of as good nutrition. You
need to know the truth about food, and why eating the right way can save your life.
Early in his career as a researcher with
MIT and Virginia Tech, Dr. Campbell worked to promote better health by eating more meat,
milk and eggs -- high-quality animal protein It was an obvious sequel to my
own life on the farm and I was happy to believe that the American diet was the best in the
He later was a researcher on a project in
the Philippines working with malnourished children. The project became an investigation
for Dr. Campbell, as to why so many Filipino children were being diagnosed with liver
cancer, predominately an adult disease. The primary goal of the project was to ensure that
the children were getting as much protein as possible.
In this project, however, I uncovered
a dark secret. Children who ate the highest protein diets were the ones most likely to get
liver cancer... He began to review other reports from around the world that
reflected the findings of his research in the Philippines.
Although it was heretical to say that
protein wasnt healthy, he started an in-depth study into the role of
nutrition, especially protein, in the cause of cancer.
The research project culminated in a
20-year partnership of Cornell University, Oxford University, and the Chinese Academy of
Preventive Medicine, a survey of diseases and lifestyle factors in rural China and Taiwan.
More commonly known as the China Study, this project eventually produced more than
8000 statistically significant associations between various dietary factors and
The findings? People who ate the most
animal-based foods got the most chronic disease People who ate the most plant-based
foods were the healthiest and tended to avoid chronic disease. These results could not be
ignored, said Dr. Campbell.
In The China Study, Dr. Campbell details
the connection between nutrition and heart disease, diabetes, and cancer, and also its
ability to reduce or reverse the risk or effects of these deadly illnesses. The China
Study also examines the source of nutritional confusion produced by powerful lobbies,
government entities, and irresponsible scientists.
The China Study is not a diet book.
Consumers are bombarded with conflicting messages regarding health and nutrition; the
market is flooded with popular titles like The Atkins Diet and The South Beach Diet. Dr.
Campbell cuts through the haze of misinformation and delivers an insightful message to
anyone living with cancer, diabetes, heart disease, obesity, and those concerned with the
effects of aging. Additionally, he challenges the validity of these low-carb fad diets and
issues a startling warning to their followers.
And what is the right diet? One rich in
fruit and vegetables and the powerful, disease-preventing anti-oxidants they contain, and
devoid of animal products - particularly animal protein. Colins experimental work
He found that cancer requires the right
conditions to grow and some elements of the diet provide exactly the right environment
while others slow cancer growth. He called them promoters and anti-promoters and cancer
flourishes only when there are more promoters than antis.
By looking at tiny groups of cells called
foci - the precursor cells to cancer - he found that their growth and development was
almost entirely dependent upon how much protein was consumed and that this growth could be
triggered or arrested by varying protein intake.
The protein that Colin used in his
experiments was casein - animal protein derived from milk and the more that was ingested,
the greater the cancer growth. When the same experiments were repeated with vegetable
protein, there was no increase in cancer growth regardless of how much protein was
