An indispensable guide to food, our most powerful tool to reverse the global epidemic of chronic disease, heal the environment, reform politics, and revive economies, from #1 New York Times bestselling author Mark Hyman, MD — “Read this book if you’re ready to change the world” (Tim Ryan, US Representative).

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.



“Dr. Hyman deftly describes the web of destruction caused by our modern food system — and how to reverse the tide and save our health and planet. His most important book to date.”―Dariush Mozaffarian, MD, DrPH, Friedman School of Nutrition Science & Policy, Tufts University

“The revolution starts with what we put on our plates and into our bodies. But even before that, it starts with Food Fix. Read this book if you’re ready to change the world.”―Tim Ryan, US Representative (OH)

Food Fix is a wake up call, alerting us to the flawed food system that ensnares us all. Dr. Mark Hyman has not just the diagnosis but the remedies we need. I’m hoping his crucial message will give us a recipe that can fix our food.”
Daniel Goleman

“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

“Dr. Mark Hyman pulls no punches in this eye-opening journey through the food system, revealing the jungle behind the grocery aisle, farmer’s market, cafeteria, and anywhere we find food. While in his past books he helped us realize the joy and benefits of healthy eating, this book takes a deep dive into the hidden politics, vested corporate interests, and broken regulations that create confusion and distrust about what we are fed, both in terms of food and information. Food Fix argues that food inequities increase risks for chronic diseases, which contributes to social unrest, mental health disorders, educational inequities, and even violence and crime. The good news is that with each ugly reveal, Dr. Hyman proposes practical solutions. If you want to know what’s under the sheets of our food system and what needs to be done to repair the mess, read this book. If you are part of the problem: run — Food Fix is coming after you. I highly recommend the fascinating probe into the world behind our food.”―William W. Li, author of Eat to Beat Disease

“Our food system went to Dr. Mark Hyman for a check-up, and in Food Fix he diagnoses chronic influence-peddling, inflammation of the profit motive (the money-grubbing has metastasized), sclerosis of the lower politician, and a severely ruptured public interest. Read this book. Then take two actions and tweet him in the morning.”―Ken Cook, President and Co-founder, Environmental Working Group (EWG)

“Few issues are as important as the food the world grows, transports, wastes, and consumes, and few people can capture this picture, and can be as creative with solutions as Mark Hyman. This is a powerful call to arms.”
Kelly D. Brownell, PhD, Director of World FoodPolicy Center

Food Fix by Dr. Mark Hyman is a provocative yet transformational analysis of our food system, from farm to table. While some of the proposals to change our food system are controversial, the book represents one of the first substantive and thoughtful attempts to tie the often stove-piped subjects of food, medicine, health, and sustainable agriculture into a holistic approach to feed a hungry and healthy global population.”―Dan Glickman, Former Secretary of Agriculture (1995-2001)

“Dr. Mark Hyman brilliantly unmasks the corruption in our food system. Read this book to impact your health and the world around you.”―Vani Hari, author of The Food Babe Way

“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
