Food Fix

by Mark Hyman

Overview

The way we eat is having negative effects on the planet – and the damage we're doing to the planet negatively affects how we eat. But what can we do to change this? In Mark Hyman's Food Fix: How to Save Our Health, Our Economy, Our Communities, and Our Planet – One Bite at a Time, we learn about the origins of the food industry crisis and what we can do about it. The health costs of increasing cases of illness due to the food we eat are becoming increasingly harder to ignore. Over the next 35 years, experts estimate that the cost of ill health in the U.S. alone will be over $95 trillion. The so-called 'industrialized diet' has spread around across the globe, and the cost of this in healthcare could be in the astronomical. But it doesn't stop there. Hyman seeks to highlight how the unsustainable way we eat is resulting in increased CO2 emissions and dying ecosystems, offering up advice to help turn the tide.
