“What I liked about the course was that it was not only focused on nutrition, but also environment, life style, animal treatment and all the toxins in our world. Everything works and affects us together as a whole.”
Overall health and risk of degenerative disease are inextricably linked to dietary practice. This innovative online certificate program expands upon the ground-breaking book The China Study, and is designed to help you understand the role of diet in healing and managing disease. Learn the basis for dietary causes of chronic degenerative diseases, and clinical solutions for reducing risk. Uncover practical applications of a whole foods, plant-based diet and the positive effect it could have on our health care systems and society. Each course is based on the lectures and research of Dr. T. Colin Campbell. Also included are guest lectures from experts in the field, including Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn, M.D., Dr. John McDougall, M.D., Dr. Antonia Demas, Ph.D., Dr. Matthew Lederman, M.D., Dr. Doug Lisle, Ph.D., and more.

Topics in this three-course series include the troubled state of health and healthcare in America, fundamentals of nutrition, research and findings from the China Project and an examination of current nutrition research practices and methodology. Students will emerge from the series able to approach nutrition from the “wholistic” point of view advanced by Dr. Campbell, and able to evaluate with more confidence the conflicting messages about healthy diets coming at us every day from the media.
