Food Fix

How to Save Our Health, Our Economy, Our Communities, and Our Planet--One Bite at a Time

How to grow, produce, and consume food to resolve the world’s health, environmental, social, and economic crises, from #1 New York Times bestselling author Mark Hyman, MD.

Our most powerful tool to reverse the global epidemic of chronic disease, heal the environment, reform politics, and revive economies is food. 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, #1 bestselling 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.

Praise

"An authoritative, illuminating account of how greed and cynicism have poisoned our food and devastated our minds, our bodies, and our planet, paired with inspiring examples of how we can reverse the damage, restore our health, and heal our world. Food Fix is profoundly disturbing and vitally important."
James S. Gordon, MD, psychiatrist and author of The Transformation
"In spite of daily breakthroughs in medicine, we continue to see an increase in cancers, heart disease, and other chronic conditions. It's time to consider not just what we eat, but how it's farmed and how we are using our land in the process. Food Fix gives us an outline of what we need to consider to both fulfill our needs and preserve our planet."
Governor Christine Todd Whitman, former Administrator of the EPA
"Food Fix shines a light on what is happening with our food system while sharing ways for readers to make a real change. Dr. Hyman's book inspires us to set out on a path to improve our personal health and, at the same time, the health of our planet."—Gisele Bündchen, author of Lessons: My Path to a Meaningful Life and global environmentalist
"If you're overwhelmed by the scale of the world's problems, and wondering what you can do in your own life to start, Food Fix is for you. Dr. Hyman deftly connects the dots between education, health, climate science, and the food we eat every day, showing that the choices we make about the food we put on our plates have consequences that ripple around the world."—Arianna Huffington, founder and CEO of Thrive Global
"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
"Mark Hyman has been teaching us how to eat healthier, feel better, and live longer for years. While nutrition is still a major focus in Food Fix, he also encourages us to think about how our food is produced, prepared, and purchased. I highly recommend it. It is a great read."—Ann M. Veneman, Former Secretary of Agriculture
"A tour de force read that exposes how food and food systems are at the center of our most pressing problems, impacting the health of people, our environment, and even our national security. Food Fix boldly demonstrates how changing what -- and how -- we eat can literally change the world."—Bill Frist, MD, Former Majority Leader US Senate
"In an increasingly polarized and anxious world, Food Fix is a beacon of hope and inspiration, serving up a pragmatic and clear-eyed assessment of where we are, and how changing the way we eat and think about food, can take us where we need to go."—Deepak Chopra
"Dr. Hyman's diagnostic skills are on full display in this brilliant book. He's connected the pandemic of chronic human disease with the many expressions of our environmental crisis, for which his urgent prescription is regenerative agriculture. Reading this book should give all of us great hope for personal and planetary healing, and thank you, Mark, for shining your light on our path forward."—Tom Newmark, Chairman of The Carbon Underground and past Chair of Greenpeace Fund US
"Dr. Hyman's provocative perspective on the power of food to fix us and our planet is an influential read."—Mehmet Oz, MD
"It may have occurred to you that you need to change your diet, for your own health or the planet's. This volume will give you both a nudge in that direction, and some straightforward guidance for getting underway!"—Bill McKibben, author of Falter
"Dr. Hyman is a unique leader in the food world, building bridges between disparate viewpoints, creating connections between different worlds, and using this to construct an original plan for how we can all move forward towards better health, not only for ourselves but also for the planet. Food Fix ranges masterfully across different fields, offering, ultimately, a sense of hope and an inspiring vision for the future."—Nina Teicholz, author of The Big Fat Surprise
"Food Fix is a brilliantly researched feast of facts about the most critically overlooked cause of chronic disease, global warming, and environmental degradation. It is also the Fix, demonstrating that the food sector is an astonishing yet overlooked basis for transforming agriculture, health care, mental illness, biodiversity loss, education, and economic well-being. It is a rare book, a momentous work that will inform and improve the lives of every reader, society, and country."—Paul Hawken, editor of Drawdown
