Foodconsumer.org released an interesting article focused on the findings of Dr. T. Colin Campbell.  Dr. Campbell is a co-author of the world reknowned book The China Study, an in depth 35 year research program on health and nutrition.  His findings have provoked many new studies, and provided important insights into several areas of the typical American diet and lifestyle.  One interesting dicovery from Dr. Campbell's clinical research was a strong connection between protein intake and cancer, more specifically milk protein. 

In one study, Dr. Campbell's team exposed rats to aflatoxin and then fed them with either a diet with 5 percent protein or a diet with 20 percent casein for 100 weeks.  100 weeks is often considered an entire life time for rats. All of those on the high casein diet died or nearly died from liver tumors at 100 weeks while all of those who were on the low protein diet were still "alive, active and thrifty, with sleek hair coats at 100 weeks."  Read the Full Story
