I Just Interviewed T. Colin Campbell


Robyn Openshaw - Sep 08, 2010 - This Post May Contain Affiliate Links


Normally I blog in the morning. Not this morning, because I got Mercola’s newsletter lambasting T. Colin Campbell, PhD, of Cornell University, and his massive study known as the Oxford/Cornell China Project.

I threw everything on my schedule to the wind today and have spent hours writing a response to the Mercola newsletter. We will invariably deal with hundreds of emails about it so I want to respond to it immediately. I hope to have that blog entry and newsletter ready to go out by morning.

In my research, I spoke at length with Dr. Campbell on the phone.   Apart from the details and questions we discussed, all of which will be reflected in my report tomorrow, I learned something interesting.

A venerable Hollywood group with very prestigious directors has produced a movie called Forks Over Knives, about the careers and research and lives of Caldwell Esselstyn, M.D., and Colin Campbell, PhD. Both were raised with meat-intensive diets on farms, and their long and lettered careers intersected early on.

The pre-screenings have been sold out. I would fly to a screening if given a chance! It comes out in theaters next March. If we haven’t all been able to see it, maybe I can arrange a screening at the GreenSmoothieGirl retreat April 21-23.

    The debate will be around for a while. I’ve been trying to follow it with some success. The anti-campbell people totally spammed the internet with this “Denise Minger debunks the China Study stuff”. I think there were about 40 of them on Paleo websites, Weston Price and others. essentially a giant PR campaign.

    The fact that she is an English major and an independent blogger bothers me, especially when others have pointed out that she made some serious errors in her critique before sending it out to the world. Since I have no idea how to interpret data myself it all just makes me confused.

    I don’t know if she is associated with the WPF. They (WPF) have an entire section of papers on their website for vegetarians about why you shouldn’t be a vegetarian. To me that looks a little nefarious, especially when they have logos on their website promoting grass fed beef and wild fish, among other things. Is it any surprise that an organization telling people to eat liver, raw milk, cream cheese, meat and seafood would totally be at odds with Dr. Campbell?

    Mercola may mean well, but he sure sells a lot of stuff on his website. That doesn’t look too good for a serious professional.
