I have been wating a long time for this interview!
What a thrill! What a treat! Dr. T Colin Campbell was with me on the Awesome Vegans Podcast! Working my best with the Gods of technology, Dr. T. Collin Campbell joined me remotely from the Science of Spirituality International Meditation Center in the Chicagoland area. The Center puts on the annual Veggie Fest every August which attracts over 40,000 and is one of the largest in the country. Veggie Fest will take place on August 10 and 11 this year and I will be doing cooking demonstrations on both days. Join me!
Dr. Campbell visited the center in June to give a talk to over 1500 people who were interested in learning more about a plant-based diet. His book, The China Study, documents his ground breaking research which is a main factor in today’s growing plant-based health movement. In The China Study, Dr. Campbell studied 65 counties in China comparing the health outcomes of those who ate primarily whole food plant-based diets and those who ate animal-based products. From the research, he determined that food, specifically animal-based foods, and not genetics, is the source of a multitude of diseases. Campbell cites casein, the protein in dairy, as being one of the worst culprits of all.
Dr. Campbell lays down nutritional nuggets in this podcast that everyone should hear. I know you will find this interview truly eye-opening and informative.
To attend this year’s Veggie Fest in Lisle, IL on August 10 and 11, visit Veggie Fest Chicago.com. And be sure to come and say hello to me. I will be doing cooking demonstrations on both days at 2:30p. I look forward to seeing you there!
