Traditional nutrition information is focused on the effects of individual nutrients. For example, this is the way that nutrition is studied (one nutrient at a time), the way that the information is told to the public (as in recommended daily allowances), the way that foods are judged (as in food composition tables) and the way that nutrition is often marketed (as in nutrient supplements). This is not the way that nutrition is most effective in creating health. When nutrition is practiced as a lifestyle, as in the consumption of whole plant based foods--without adding back fat, sugar, salt and other fortifications but supplemented with proper physical activity, adequate hydration and sunshine exposure--not only are most diseases prevented but also this same diet can be used to treat (yes, treat) diseases. The results are proving to be substantial and there is nothing in medical practice that comes close to the effectiveness of this practice of creating and maintaining health. About Colin Campbell T.
