Chronic disease, economic disparity, social injustice, and climate change. These are significant problems — but wouldn’t it be great if there was ONE solution to them all? According to Dr. Mark Hyman, there is.
The solution is food.
Today on The Marie Forleo Podcast you’ll hear about Mark’s new book, Food Fix, and the science-based ways we can save our health, society, and — most importantly — the planet. You’re probably familiar with Dr. Mark Hyman. He’s the man behind the pegan diet and 12 (yes, 12!) New York Times bestselling books about nutrition, functional medicine, and integrative health, including the renowned 10 Day Detox Diet.
Mark says that Food Fix is the most important book he’s ever written.
And for good reason. Sixty percent of Americans are living with chronic disease — a skyrocketing trend Mark noticed during his 30 years as a practicing family physician. We’re talking 11 million preventable deaths per year.
When Dr. Hyman dug into why this was happening, he realized this influx of chronic disease stemmed from the food we eat. Here’s where it gets interesting. Mark says people aren’t choosing unhealthy foods because they’re lazy or incompetent. It goes much deeper than that.Our most powerful tool to reverse the global epidemic of chronic disease, heal the environment, reverse climate change, and poverty and social injustice, reform politics, and revive economies is food. @drmarkhyman Click To Tweet
The food we eat is a direct result of a broken food system and corrupt political food policies.
These policies have caused a chain reaction — affecting the economy, and the health of our planet. Mark says we have an important decision to make. We can reverse all of these problems, but we have to change the way we think about, eat, and grow our food. If you’re ready to feel healthier and save the planet, listen to this episode ASAP.
