Publisher's Summary

Help to transform the planet in crisis with this indispensable guide to healthy, ethical, and economically sustainable food from number-one New York Times best-selling author Mark Hyman, MD

"Read this book if you're ready to change the world." (Tim Ryan, US Representative)

Food is our most powerful tool to reverse the global epidemic of chronic disease, heal the environment, reform politics, and revive economies. What we eat has tremendous implications not just for our waistlines, but also for the planet, society, and the global economy. What we do to our bodies, we do to the planet; and what we do to the planet, we do to our bodies.

In Food Fix, number-one best-selling author Mark Hyman explains how our food and agriculture policies are corrupted by money and lobbies that drive our biggest global crises: the spread of obesity and food-related chronic disease, climate change, poverty, violence, educational achievement gaps, and more.

Pairing the latest developments in nutritional and environmental science with an unflinching look at the dark realities of the global food system and the policies that make it possible, Food Fix is a hard-hitting manifesto that will change the way you think about - and eat - food forever, and will provide solutions for citizens, businesses, and policy makers to create a healthier world, society, and planet.

Critic Reviews

"Our global food system has produced an unhealthy planet, thanks to the food industry's push for unsustainable ultra-processed food. Food Fix highlights the need to focus on what we put on our plates as a way to improve our diets, our health, and the health of the planet." (Barry M. Popkin, PhD, W. R. Kenan, Jr., Distinguished Professor of Nutrition, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill)

"Dr. Hyman is a modern-day Hippocrates, a pied piper with a clarion call to heal ourselves with healthy food and good habits, as well to rethink and realign our food system to support greater health in the world. His voice is at once fresh, powerful, informed, passionate, and encouraging, and his book a must read for us all." (Walter Robb, Stonewall Robb Advisors, former co-CEO of Whole Foods Market)

"Mark Hyman may be our leading physician social visionary. In his most important book yet, he shows how our food economy could be reshaped to make us more prosperous and, more important, healthier." (Lawrence H. Summers)

The world needs this!

Thank you Dr. Mark Hyman for your insightful book. My son and I listened on audible during carpool. Great insight to the way our health is being so impacted by the state of our agricultural, economic and political choices. Let’s make a difference and turn this around! So grateful for you passion towards this cause!

Holy Political Agenda Batman!

If you're looking for yet another person's political opinion to be impressed on you, this is the book for you! If you wandered on to this book hoping to find some more answers on ways to be healthy - run! Run as fast as you can! You're in for long, slogging chapters on current politics that are yet another opinion of a particular point of view that is very one sided in answers to some extremely complex issues. I gave it two stars simply because I do agree with eating a whole foods diet...

The most life changing book you will ever read! Read Now. Please

This is metaphysically CREATOR GIVEN into Hyman’s spirit, to our spirits. This is Nobel prize in Literature worthy. I’m a little jealous. But even more great full and empowered.

Repetitive but warranted

This book has a few refrains. As a member of the choir, I had felt like I was in a loop a few times. That said, the book is important and all important messages require redundancy.

The chapter on social and discrimination issues around food, from corporate malfeasance and food deserts, was powerful. It personally helped me refocus my work in the field.

I am also looking for ways to help young people become more mindful about food supply chains and the opportunities and responsibilities in them. Again, this book is helpful for that mission as well.

if you're concerned about yourself, your community, our nation, and our world, this book is a must. Whatever our differences, we all have to eat and live here. Those matters are becoming more pressing every moment we live.

Great Information

This book has really opened my eyes needless to say. I listened dr Dr.Hymans book after listening to The End To Mental Illness by Dr.Amen. This book gives a in-depth look into not only our corrupt food system but government and government policies regarding out food as well. READ THIS BOOK! It will change your life and hopefully your carbon foot print. I plan on buying the book just to have it in my library so I can take more in-depth notes and bookmark my favorite parts.
