"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."
"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

Dr. Mark Hyman’s newest book is filled with facts I found shocking. Somehow, seeing the numbers in black and white makes them more jarring than just hearing them on a news report from the T. V. - “for every 10% of your diet that comes from processed food, your death risk increases by 14%” That one really floored me. Not so much for myself, but I’ve got younger members of my family who I’d venture to say devote far more than 10% of their diet to processed food. If that statistic is accurate, their future is dubious. My generation didn’t eat “processed” as a general rule and I’m in my last few laps. They, on the other hand, have miles to go...
Being the good doctor that he is, Hyman spends time discussing the effects of various health crises (obesity and all its co-morbidities, hunger, chronic disease) have on the global economy. These numbers are also staggering. When you read his extrapolation for the next 35 years, we’ll, it helped me understand the term “mind bending”, for the first time 😳
A good portion of the book looks at the government’s programs and agencies that over see food, big AG and big FOOD. These are massive institutions that hold political sway and determine the course of how and what we eat to a large extent. Hyman is not shy about casting a light on the job they’ve done, where and how they’ve failed and his suggestions for what we need to do to save the planet from sure demise.
There are lots of suggestions for how to fix things in this book. Recommendations are made for personal changes that will impact your own health, (and finances, btw), the health of your family and that of your immediate community. Then he gets global and suggests how the “Food Fix” at the local, regional, national and world wide levels will work, interact and impact the world.
Hyman identifies companies doing a good job, what they’re doing and how. This book is not just Chicken Little squawking about a falling sky; it’s problem identification with realistic resolution proposals. The writing is good, and at times felt like an espionage investigation. Hhhhmmm...📚
The 2015-2020 Dietary Guidelines for Americans includes the following text on page 32: "Strong evidence from mostly prospective cohort studies but also randomized controlled trials has shown that eating patterns that include lower intake of dietary cholesterol are associated with reduced risk of CVD."
Just above this text on the same page of the guidelines: "The Key Recommendation from the 2010 Dietary Guidelines to limit consumption of dietary cholesterol to 300 mg per day is not included in the 2015 edition, but this change does not suggest that dietary cholesterol is no longer important to consider when building healthy eating patterns. As recommended by the IOM, individuals should eat as little dietary cholesterol as possible while consuming a healthy eating pattern."
Since heart disease remains as a leading killer of Americans, errors of this sort are incredibly unfortunate for those families that may be impacted.
Thank you for this book Dr. Mark Hyman!
A great deal of research has been done on the food industry and how politics play a huge role in agriculture. Even though we all might have an idea of how the government and big food companies have ruined our health and our planet, I thought it was still worth reading. I enjoyed reading about poverty and racism (chapter IV)
I did not learn anything new about the plant-rich diet or what type of meat I should be eating. If you own any other Hyman's book, think of this book as a prequel to that book. This book isn't about what we should eat it's about why we eat the food we eat that's killing us and killing our planet

Food fix sounded like mostly about diet and meal plans but it's not
