`The China Study: Startling Implications for Diet, Weight-Loss and Long-term Health` is the definitive resource for anyone considering a plant-based diet and, because of this, more than a half million people have picked up the book.
With the Hispanic community struggling with obesity rates like never before--for instance, Hispanic girls have 2-3 times the risk of having a high body mass index (BMI) than Caucasian girls of the same age--a plant-based diet can improve the health of an entire culture. This and many other facts nearly demand a release of `The China Study` Spanish-translation edition.
