Podcast #92: Dr. T. Colin Campbell: Protein, Cancer & COVID-19

December 7, 2020

In this episode of the Ordinary Vegan Podcast, I talk with a man who needs no introduction. His name is Dr. T. Colin Campbell and one of the most famous people in the plant-based movement.

Dr. T. Colin Campbell, PhD has dedicated his life to the science of human health for more than 60 years. His primary focus is on the association between diet and disease, particularly cancer. Although largely known for the China Study–one of the most comprehensive studies of health and nutrition ever conducted, and recognized by The New York Times as the “Grand Prix of epidemiology”–Dr. Campbell’s profound impact also includes extensive involvement in education, public policy, and laboratory research. He also wrote the bestselling book Whole, and The Low-Carb Fraud. 

Several documentary films feature Dr. Campbell and his research, including Forks Over Knives, Eating You Alive, Food Matters, and PlantPure Nation. Furthermore, he has delivered hundreds of lectures around the world and  is the founder of the T. Colin Campbell Center for Nutrition Studies and the online Plant-Based Nutrition Certificate in partnership with eCornell.

Dr. T. Colin Campbell has dedicated his career to proving that a chronic diagnosis doesn’t have to be a death sentence and that prevention, even reversal, is possible.

Today, Dr. Campbell shares the evidence he’s accumulated over a lifetime of research to show that making the switch to a whole foods plant-based diet is the most effective way to protect yourself from COVID-19 and prevent chronic conditions along with:

  • Why some people are skeptical about science
  • How much plant protein do we need
  • Dr. T. Colin Campbell's extensive research on viruses including hepatitis B and liver cancer
  • How nutrients control cancer
  • Turning cancer on with animal protein
  • COVID-19 and nutrition in a pandemic
  • The China Study
  • Forks over Knives Documentary
