July 19: The China Study Cookbook + Alzheimer’s Researcher Rudolph Tanzi, Ph.D. Chef Del Strouf, author of The Forks Over Knives Cookbook, returns with a new bestseller-to-be, The China Study Cookbook, using the principles from T. Colin Campbell’s landmark study as the basis for delicious, accessible recipes. We then meet Dr. Rudolph Tanzi, a member of the research team that identified the first Alzheimer’s gene and several subsequent ones. I learned about Dr. Tanzi in a book by Deepak Chopra, who noted that Tanzi learned that every animal who lives long enough is subject to Alzheimer’s pathology. The researcher went vegetarian that day and hasn’t looked back.
