This kind of information saved my life when I first started reading about it 20+ years ago. I was hospitalized with a life-threatening colon blockage. I was told I would need to be on medication the rest of my life. After reading some of Dr. McDougalls's books, I was blown away how with easily my doom and gloom illness evaporated.

In my humble opinion, Dr. McDougall ought to win the Nobel Prize. He has been way ahead of his time (at least in this country) for many years. His latest book addresses some of our most common illnesses and diseases and how you can easily doctor yourself to good health. The book is an easy read and covers any question you might have from what goes into your mouth all the way through to when it comes out. Though I consider myself well-educated, I learned new things. Especially helpful was the part on how to decide if you need a colonoscopy, something the over-50 crowd is being pushed to consume. I only wish books like these were required reading for educators, all health care professionals and children. In addition to helping you rid yourself of some of the major illnesses of our time, if you follow the good doctor's advice, you'll just plain feel better.

I have no connection to the author, other than I think this is the best advice money can buy. It's bound to save you at least one doctor's office visit, or more. And maybe even some costly, totally unnecessary surgery.

"The food you put into your body is the single most powerful factor that determines your health and well being." - Dr. John A. McDougall, MD

This challenging theme underlies all of Dr. McDougall's writings. Genetics and one's exercise habits are important, but for most people most of the time, the food you eat trumps everything else in determining your overall health. In this book Dr. Mcdougall focuses on how food affects the health of the body's digestive system.

This book takes you on a tour of your digestive system starting with your mouth, and progressing through your esophagus, stomach, liver, gallbladder and bowels. Dr. McDougal discusses the major conditions/diseases that afflict each of these organs. He explains through his own experience and scientific research how poor diet creates the problems most commonly suffered, and how a change in diet can relieve these problems. He also explains how problems in one particular area, the bowels, can trigger problems throughout the entire digestive system.

This book is for you if you suffer from any one or more of the following digestive conditions/diseases: bad breath, tooth decay, acid reflux - GERD, indigestion, ulcers, gallstones, liver chirrhosis, appendicitis, diverticulitis, IBS, constipation, hemorrhoids, vericose veins, hiatus hernia, colitis, colin polyps. Dr. McDougall explains that a healthy person shouldn't suffer from these conditions. But if you do, a change in diet will usually be sufficient to eliminate or greatly reduce the problem.

Dr. McDougall advocates a low-fat, plant based vegan diet as the simple solution to these commonly suffered digestive conditions and diseases. This simple solution sounds startling in our era of high-tech medical treatment, drugs and surgery.

This is an excellent book for how the digestive system works and how we mess it up at times. The book supports a diet that is high in fiber, low in fat, and contains no animal proteins.

The only thing missing is the usual recipes to get you started. Still, you can always pick up the McDougall Quick and Easy Cookbook.

I've followed McDougall's program for 15 years...and many people ask how I'm able to stay so fit and healthy. I'm certain I've converted at least 20 others...but there are at least 20 others who started and can't seem to stay on the program. They think it's too hard.
To me, it's easy. Just eat the RIGHT things, and don't worry about how much you eat. If you have a big appetite, it's no problem! Tell people you are under doctor's orders at restaurants or parties.
I'd much rather trade in the fats, meats, and cheeses for ideal weight and good health. I'm over age 55 and I don't take any medications or diet pills -- and I eat as much as I want. My blood pressure, other tests are normal. I wear a size 8, which is smaller than I was at age 35.
I real all McDougall's books because they educate and inspire me. Go to his website, read the forum there. Great information.

It's funny The China Study book attracted over 100 reviews that share the discovery of what Dr. McDougall started to write over 20 years ago about the health benefits of fat-free vegan eating.

I agree with the previous review that Dr. McDougall should be awarded the Nobel prize for his contribution to educating people of the right healthful diet.

I have most of his books and keep re-reading them all the time. Digestive Tune-up gave me a better insight into the entire process.

I have been following the McDougall program for 2 years now, before I was a vegetarian + using the traditional Chinese medicine recommendations but I was in the search of the complete system and I was lucky to find it in McDougall books.

Having experienced the best offers of low-fat vegan myself I started to speak about the advantages of the vegan food with co-workers and even strangers and it's hard to convince them, most of them just laugh at me and say they will die if they only eat whole grains and vegetables. It's also really hard to find vegan food for lunch. Thanks to the rightfoods.com from Dr. McDougall's new website I can have good cup food for lunch, delicious and convenient!

I love Dr.McDougall program and his books. I feel awaken and blessed after I began following this lifestyle. I enjoy vegan food and my body is so happy with it.
