His legacy, the China Project, is the most comprehensive study of health and nutrition ever conducted. Dr. Campbell is the Jacob Gould Schurman Professor Emeritus of Nutritional Biochemistry at Cornell University. He has more than seventy grant-years of peer-reviewed research funding and authored more than 300 research papers and coauthor of the bestselling the book, The China Study: Startling Implications for Diet, Weight Loss and Long-term Health.
He is the author of a new book titled “Whole.” He also was featured in the film and book “Forks Over Knives.”
Merry Brennan is the author of Peace Pilgrim: Walking Her Talk Against Hate
Imagine giving up everything you own and walking across the country…for 28 years? Meet Peace Pilgrim, who crossed the U.S. on foot seven times with only the clothes on her back and no money to spread her message of peace. She lived off the land and the kindness of those she met, sleeping outdoors, on cement floors, in parked cars and, once, on the front seat of a fire engine in Tombstone, Arizona. Whenever she ran into trouble – physical or verbal – her sole response was love. This joyful New Jersey native touched tens of thousands of lives, one step at a time.
Merry Brennan is a long-time professional writer and journalist, her work has appeared in dozens of publications since she sold her first piece of Highlights for Children when she was in high school. She wrote an environmental column for The Asbury Park Press for many years.
