The scientific evidence in favor of a whole food, plant-based lifestyle has never been stronger. And yet today’s healthcare system limps along. In the United States, nearly 18% of the national budget is spent on healthcare. That’s three times more than in 1960. But what has this spending gained? More drugs, more side effects; increasing rates of preventable diseases, including type 2 diabetes, obesity and hypertension; so many lives lost. If this was your personal business, would you be satisfied with the return on your investment?
Meanwhile, ordinary people lack access to useful information about nutrition—an entire market thrives on your confusion. Here’s a quick and easy 10-day diet for you! A magic pill for you! A book, a blog, a social media savior. Of course, not everyone is a fraud. But how can you spot the difference?
At the T. Colin Campbell Center for Nutrition Studies, we believe that you have the right to better health and better information. We advocate for evidence-based education and resources. The cornerstone of this education is our Plant-Based Nutrition Certificate program in partnership with eCornell featuring lectures from over 20 MDs, PhDs, RDs, RNs and more. We also offer a wide variety of plant-based resources through our website including hundreds of articles, recipes, videos and more.
We believe that your health belongs to you, as does the power of clearer thinking and stronger action. We are here to help you find that power.
