The study also gave insights into the difference in disease rates with other countries. For example, American men have a seventeen times higher death risk from coronary heart disease than rural Chinese men! And this is just one of 8,000+ statistically significant findings. The China Study book gives a clear and solid overview of the key findings of the population study.

The remainder of the book discusses various other related studies, a critical view of modern scientific research and there is a nice chart with an overview of all the foods that are good, bad or that should be eaten in moderation. The China Study book could also be seen as the complete encyclopedia of Whole Food Plant Based nutrition!
