The title of a new book by John Kelly, MD—Dublin, Ireland
I first learned of this important new book from Dr. T. Colin Campbell in late December 2014, immediately downloaded the Kindle version from Amazon and read it the next day. Why is this book so important?
Because it validates with human beings—the animal protein and cancer connection discovered by Dr. Campbell in the laboratory several decades ago. That connection is described succinctly in this quote from the book’s preface:
[Dr. T. Colin] Campbell’s careful experiments indicated one bald conclusion: that the favourite food of cancer cells happens to be animal protein; ergo, reduction or elimination of animal protein in the human diet stops cancer cell growth.
Fortunately, I learned about this powerful little book while in the early stages of writing my second book, the 4Leaf Guide to Vibrant Health, that I co-authored with Kerry Graff, MD. From the manuscript of our new book, Dr. Kelly’s work is well represented:
If only our mainstream authorities would heed the game-changing scientific and clinical findings of T. Colin Campbell, PhD and John Kelly, MD in the two incredibly revealing books referenced here.
Dr. Campbell provided the scientific foundation in the early nineties and presented his compelling findings in his best-selling 2005 book, The China Study. The most alarming information about cancer was that it was strongly associated with the consumption of animal protein. In the lab, Campbell was able to “turn cancer on and off,” simply by adjusting the level of animal protein in the diet up or down.
Long before getting to know Campbell, Dr. Kelly read The China Study, and decided to test out the findings on his human patients in Ireland. The results were astounding. Almost every patient in many dozens of cases was able to basically starve their cancer—resulting in the slowing, arresting or reversal of this horrible disease.
In 2014, he went public with their stories in his powerful book described here. His book, along with The China Study, appear on our Reading List in Chapter 27. You (and your doctor) should definitely read them both.
From another book review. What Kelly has to say about the medical profession, dominated by consultants who rarely look beyond their own highly specialised areas, is telling.
But it is his exposure of the refusal of specialists to take on board this new way of treating cancer – or even to consider it – that makes this such an important book. Book review: The Dublin doctor who is beating cancer

The Bottom Line. Sadly, it’s all about money, power, ego and control when it comes to mainstream medicine. But it’s time for that to change. I will close with Dr. Kelly’s humanitarian appeal for that change in this paragraph from Chapter 8 in his book.
“I’m no fool. I understand the implications are colossal – in terms of new treatment approaches to one of the major illnesses, in terms of the food industry, in terms of the pharmaceutical industry, in terms of medical institutional regimes. But the facts must be faced and the coordinated follow-up studies and readjustments in care must be made. Because, finally, it isn’t a medical, or an economic, or a political issue. It is a humanitarian cause.” — John Kelly, MD
Final Note. I first mentioned this book in my last blogpost of 2014. 2015—Long Overdue Breakthrough Year. Hopefully, it may help us turn that long-awaited corner as we move away from “disease management” and on toward true health promotion. A few of my earlier cancer blogs provided here:

- 6-11-13 What’s FOOD got to do with cancer?
- 5-1-13 Cancer. Too much hoopla. Not much help.
