China Project

China Project

The China Project is an ongoing extensive study that explores the correlation between disease epidemiology and dietary intake patterns in many provinces of China.

Funding and dates of the project

The study was jointly funded by the Universities of Oxford, Cornell and the Government of China. Professor T. Colin Campbell of Cornell led the first two major studies in the 1980s and 1990s.

Campbell's summary of the results of this and other studies appeared in his book The China Study. He claimed that the extensive research in the study showed that diseases of affluence are caused by Westernisation. He also claimed that vested Government, industry and medicine interests have suppressed the evidence that many prevalent diseases in the developed world are caused by excessive and harmful reliance on meat, dairy and processed food
