n Barbara Nutrition Studies CertPlant-Based Nutrition Certificate – T. Colin Campbell Foundation – T. Colin Campbell, Ph.D.

Based on the work of Dr. T. Colin Campbell (The China Study) and a variety of leading experts in the field. This course gave me insight into the facts and science behind a whole food, plant-based lifestyle. Reductionist “nutrient-by-nutrient” approaches to nutrition were questioned, and the “wholistic” point of view is advanced by Dr. Campbell. This knowledge that can be used in life, work, or practice to more fully explain and better educate others on the role of diet in everyday health and healing. I received knowledge and understanding of… the role of nutrition in the development of chronic disease, physiological reasons we are drawn to foods that do not support health, environmental consequences of our food choices, the impact of industry on both science and public policy, common misconceptions about protein, fat, carbohydrates, and supplements, the rational for whole food, plant-based nutrition and more!

“There is a great deal of debate among medical professionals, in the media, and in many of the popular books people are reading today as to what constitutes a healthy diet. However, examination of the scientific evidence shows that what constitutes a healthy diet is not actually subject to debate.” Pamela A. Popper, Ph.D., N.D
