NEW YORK, July 11, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- The pioneer who inspired physicians to understand how diet plays a role in chronic disease and healing, Dr. T. Colin Campbell, is being championed by another medical innovator, renowned otolaryngologist Dr. Jamie Koufman. She has created an online petition with the hope of gathering enough signatures to show the Nobel Committee the importance of Dr. Campbell's work, which will encourage his nomination for the Nobel Prize in Medicine.
As an international authority on the diagnosis and treatment of acid reflux, Dr. Koufman created the website, http://drcampbell4nobel.org/, to help nominate Dr. Campbell. As the foremost scientist of the China-Cornell-Oxford Project on diet and disease and author of The China Study. It was Dr. Campbell's work — which shows that people who ate a whole food, plant-based diet can prevent and reverse the development of most common chronic diseases — that inspired Dr. Koufman to change the diets of her patients, leading to dramatically improved health outcomes.
Dr. Campbell is the unquestionable pioneering leader proving the link between the Western diet and chronic diseases including diabetes, heart disease, and cancer. Dr. Koufman believes that by Dr. Campbell winning the Nobel Prize in Medicine, there would be a paradigm shift of global proportions in the health care and food industries.
For almost three decades, Dr. Koufman's groundbreaking research has focused on acid reflux as it affects the voice and respiratory tract. Dr. Koufman is the Founder and Director of the Voice Institute of New York, and she has been listed as a Top Doctors in America every year since 1994. She has written a series of four books about acid reflux including the New York Times best-seller, Dropping Acid: The Reflux Diet Cookbook & Cure.
