With so many fad diets out there – from Atkins and South Beach to the Paleo/Caveman Diet, it can be hard to tell the difference between proper nutrition and plain old marketing hype. So where do we turn for reliable information? Unfortunately, most medical doctors get less than five hours of nutrition education over the course of their careers, and the FDA’s daily recommendations for nutrition (under the RDA, or Recommended Daily Allowance) have kept the U.S. ranked #1 in health care costs but a mere #38 in health worldwide.

To separate fact from fiction, we met with T. Colin Campbell, Ph.D. Professor Emeritus of nutrition at Cornell, and his Center for Nutrition Studies in Ithaca, New York. Arguably the top expert in the world on nutrition, Dr. Campbell has spent over 50 years researching the impact of diet on health and disease and has authored New York Times’ bestsellers like The China Study and Whole. Through his 6-week intensive certificate course on plant-based nutrition, he has helped thousands debunk the top nutrition myths and gain a better understanding of how adopting whole food, plant-based diet can ensure the sustainability of both people and the planet. Watch this episode to learn why.
