Publisher's Summary

From the number-one New York Times best-selling author of Eat to Live and The End of Diabetes, an unflinching, provocative exploration of how our food is killing us and the ways in which we are unwitting participants in an unprecedented and exploding health crisis.

Fast food is far more than just the burgers, fries, and burritos served at chain restaurants; it is also the toxic, human-engineered products found in every grocery store across America. These include: cold breakfast cereals; commercial and preserved (deli) meats and cheeses; sandwich breads and buns; chips, pretzels, and crackers; fried foods; energy bars; and soft drinks. Fast foods have become the primary source of calories in the United States and consequently the most far-reaching and destructive influence on our population. The indisputable truth is that our highly processed diet is the source of a national health crisis that is exploding into a genocide with unseen tragic implications.

Heart attacks, strokes, cancer, obesity, ADHD, autism, allergies, and autoimmune diseases all have the same root cause - our addiction to toxic ingredients. New York Times best-selling author, board-certified physician, nutritional researcher, and leading voice in the health field Joel Fuhrman, MD, explains why the problem of poor nutrition is deeper, more serious, and more pervasive than anyone imagined.

Fast Food Genocide draws on 25 years of clinical experience and research to confront our fundamental beliefs about the impact of what we eat. This book identifies issues at the heart of our country's most urgent problems. Fast food kills, but it also perpetuates bigotry and derails the American dream of equal opportunity and happiness for all. It leaves behind a wake of destruction creating millions of medically dependent and sickly people burdened with poor-quality lives.

The solution hiding in plain sight - a nutrient dense, healthful diet - can save lives and enable humans to reach their intellectual potential and achieve successful and fulfilling lives. Dr. Fuhrman offers a life-changing, scientifically sound approach that can alter American history and perhaps save your life in the process.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

Informative!

Informative book on how fast foods and processed foods are killing us. Dr. F has updated much of the data from his previous books, based on new studies and findings. That is the part that I appreciate the most in this book.

Excellent Information

This book was almost more historical than nutritional, in an excellent informative way! I have suggested to many of my friends and family that they read this book. I believe it should be used in schools during the nutrition courses. Very glad I purchased!

Everyone needs to read this book

I didn’t know it was this bad! I’ve been a fan of Dr. Fuhrman for many years, and I lost 67 pounds on Eat to Live, but I put back on about 20 over the years. Sadly, I slipped back into fast food. You will be impressed and horrified by the dangers of fast food and will avoid it like the plague it is. Thanks, Dr. Fuhrman for saving lives.

Nothing new

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

Lots of threats on junk food. Nothing new. Prefer all his previous books which are very positive. Main thread though out book is junk food will kill us. Correct, we already know that.

Would you ever listen to anything by Joel Fuhrman and Robert Phillips again?

If Phillips is announcing. No thanks

Did the narration match the pace of the story?

no. would have preferred listening to Joel Fuhrman. Phillips sounds more like a news caster lacking passion. Sounds more like news story. Fuhrman is the best speaker for his own books.

Do you think Fast Food Genocide needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

no. The book isf a threat about info we all know. Same angle used when someone tries to sell water filters. Selling fear gets very boring.

Any additional comments?

I'd probably like book more if Fuhrman did announcing. Only reason I tried this audio is I have a free credit. Back to Reading
