“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.”
This ground-breaking, online certificate program expands upon the best selling books The China Study and Whole and is designed to help you understand the role of diet in everyday health and healing. The program is based on Dr. Campbell’s lectures, experience and decades of research. Lectures by Caldwell Esselstyn, MD, John McDougall, MD, and many other experts are also included.

In this three-course series, reductionist “nutrient-by-nutrient” approaches to nutrition are questioned, and the “wholistic” point of view is advanced by Dr. Campbell. Students are trained to think critically about information on diet, health, and disease and to ask questions such as: ‘Is this information based on scientific evidence or is it incomplete and unreliable?’ Students practice relaying scientific information through written assignments, instructor feedback, and interactions with peers in the course. Students also gauge what they have learned with no-pressure quizzes.
