Science is divided on everything – Part Two

Science is divided on everything

I stand next to, and in respect of scientists bringing forth the research and clarity in preventing the non-communicable diseases that are killing so many of us far too young.

A touch of research

My research touch points include the following:

Credible and published proof

The scientific studies I cite have been used and confirmed by, among others:

  • Dr T. Colin Campbell, author, the Jacob Gould Schurman Professor Emeritus of Nutritional Biochemistry at Cornell University, and lead scientist in the 1980s China-Oxford-Cornell study on diet and disease, set up in 1983 by Cornell University, the University of Oxford and the Chinese Academy of Preventive Medicine.
