Overall health and risk of degenerative disease are inextricably linked to dietary practice.

Colin Campbell, Ph.D.
Topics in this three-course series include the troubled state of health and healthcare in America, fundamentals of nutrition, research and findings from The China Project and an examination of current nutrition research practices and methodology.

I feel truly privileged to be a part of this course at a time when we can use the knowledge to make a real difference in the world. Dr. Campbell's message is critical to our health, and the evidence presented in the course cannot be ignored. The information is easy to understand and communicate, my fellow students are brimming with enthusiasm, and our instructor is incredibly supportive. I can't wait for the next module.
Dr. Campbell's research and teachings, founded in solid science, have opened my eyes. I previously considered coronary artery disease to be a terminal illness on par with cancer. The data presented here has demonstrated that this process can not only be arrested, but in some cases reversed. I have personally adopted Dr. Campbell's dietary recommendations and am now passing the information from these studies on to my patients. Previously, after helping patients through their acute medical crisis, my best hope and advice was to modify their risk factors and hope for the best. I can now encourage them to adopt this regimen with a good prospect of having a significant impact on the course of their disease process.

I loved the vast variety of information provided in this class.....
Every day I couldn't wait to sign on to my computer to do the lectures, quizzes and join in the discussion boards! The class kept my interest because it was challenging and made me think. Even though I am already in the nutrition field I learned new information about the politics of food and how it affects the health of all Americans. I will spread this information to peers, medical team members and patients at my place of employment as well as passing it on to friends and family.
As a plant-based nutrition and cooking instructor for The Cancer Project, I found the Certificate in Plant-Based Nutrition to be a wonderful program. Theknowledge I gained from the program helped me understand on a molecular level how cancer forms in the body, how it reproduces and what we can do to stop it. Having that deeper understanding of the process helps me explain it to my students. And once they foster a true understanding of the process, they are much more likely to adjust to healthier eating habits. Understanding the process is more powerful than referring to obscure studies that may or may not point to cancer growth - it is definitive. Skepticism runs high when promoting a plant-based diet, so this program has also brought me much needed credibility.
