Mark Hyman, MD, is the founder and director of The UltraWellness Center, the Head of Strategy and Innovation of the Cleveland Clinic Center for Functional Medicine, a twelve-time New York Timesbest-selling author, and Board President for Clinical Affairs for The Institute for Functional Medicine. His previous books include: Food: What the Heck Should I Eat?; Eat Fat, Get Thin; The Blood Sugar Solution; and The Blood Sugar Solution 10-Day Detox Diet.

  • "Food Fixis 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

Food is our most powerful tool to reverse the global epidemic of chronic disease, heal the environment, reform politics, and revive economies. 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, 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 Fixis 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.

Paul Hawken starts ecological businesses, writes about nature and commerce, and consults with heads of state and CEOs on climatic, economic and ecological regeneration. Companies he created include Erewhon, Smith & Hawken, and OneSun Solar (now called Energy Everywhere). He is the author of eight books including: The Next Economy, Growing a Business, The Ecology of Commerce, Blessed Unrest, and Drawdown: The Most Comprehensive Plan Ever Proposed to Reverse Global Warming. He is the founder of Project Drawdown, which worked with over two hundred scholars, students, scientists, researchers, and activists to map, measure, and model the one hundred most substantive solutions that can cumulatively reverse global warming by reducing and sequestering greenhouse gases. Drawdownis currently being taught in every grade level from 4thgrade on up to MIT graduate school, published in 14 languages and is used and referred to by heads of state. His forthcoming book is entitled Regeneration: Ending the Climate Crisis in One Generation.
