Dr. Fuhrman presents the fascinating science that demonstrates how the current epidemic of adult cancers and other diseases is most closely linked to what we eat in the first quarter of life. He explains how a nutrient-rich diet increases a child's resistance to common childhood illnesses like asthma, ear infections, and allergies.

Additionally, Dr. Fuhrman illustrates how eating his nutrient-rich diet during childhood is the most powerful weapon against developing cancer, cardiovascular disease, and autoimmune disorders in the future.

Disease-Proof Your Child provides nutrient-rich dietary recommendations for children, and even offers guidelines and recipes that get even the pickiest eaters to enjoy healthy food. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Shayla | 2/10/2014

    " What do you say about a book that changed your life...(and I'm not being dramatic... it really did). I recommend everyone read this, whether you have kids or not, whether they're little or all-growed-up. Fantastic advice and information for anyone. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rachel | 2/9/2014

    " This really made me stop and think about what I'm feeding my kids. As a result, I've made a commitment to ditch the processed foods while we're at home, and to implement more of a grazing diet for them. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Shelly | 2/9/2014

    " EVERY parent should read this book. Seriously. It has definitely changed the way I view food and what I will be feeding my children from now on. Much easier read than The China Study, with the same basic information. And I love the case examples he gave to drive the points home. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Katrina | 2/1/2014

    " I haven't read every word of this yet, but already I can tell you that every parent should read it. Although, it's pretty extreme (he says to get all the sugar out of your house), he definitely knows what he's talking about. He basically takes the same principles from "Eat to Live" and applies it to children. Great resource! And he includes quite a few kid friendly recipes. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kate | 1/30/2014

    " Loving this book so far! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christina | 1/29/2014

    " An important book for parents to read. I appreciate Dr. Furhman's honest, educated information on hazards for our children. I never knew why organic was supposedly better, it just seemed like another marketing scheme to me. Now I know it has more nutrients. I practice many of the positive eating habits in the book, but my family does not, and I worry about them. I hope to add this to a family night activity sometime soon. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lindy | 1/20/2014

    " Really made me think about the way we eat, and the many bad habits we have. Almost makes a person want to go vegan.....ALMOST!! While I didn't agree with everything in here, there was a lot of good I got out of it. Now...where to start making changes? "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Melodie | 1/16/2014

    " EVERY parent should read this book. Every PERSON should read this book. The recipes at the back are a nice bonus too. :) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lisa | 12/28/2013

    " This was a very insightful health book. It gives great ideas in preparing healthy meals for our children and learning about immune building foods. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Leah Sayre | 12/4/2013

    " Very eye opening. I will never feed my child or myself the same again! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brittanie | 11/24/2013

    " I absolutely loved this book! My grandfather was a chiropractor and believed many of the same principles. It has also answered many of my questions on what to feed my children. This was one of those life-changing books. We are now a healthier family. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Aubri | 11/22/2013

    " I agree with the mission here, but come on....no cheese? no white flour? no FRENCH FRIES!!!?!??? no cold cereal? And the recipes....yuck! Sorry! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Roxanne Nichols | 7/31/2013

    " it is great to know that kid's tastebuds can be changed (although 8-15 samples per food can be a long time). i have a non-veggie kid at home and this gives me the courage to re-establish some more healthy eating habits at home (i even got my husband on board with it) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Charlotte | 7/8/2013

    " I really like the idea of this book. It's very motivating to me to cut as much junk out of our lives as I can and put in lots of good stuff. It's still hard to do, but everytime I read about it, I get more inspired to try it and do it as much as I can. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Robin | 2/19/2013

    " I highly recommend this to moms. It goes hand in hand with the new program our family is doing and although we are not forcing our boys to eat this way - there is a lot of great information but the recipes I like better are on fatfreevegan.com. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tricia | 11/7/2012

    " Same concepts as Eat to Live - no need to read both. Just a good reminder to make sure the whole family is eating a nutrient rich diet. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Teanne | 12/18/2011

    " Definitely getting my husband and 12 year old to read this. Cancer and other diseases start now for children but you can prevent them by feeding your kids well (but that is probably not what you think it is). "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amy | 11/15/2011

    " I wish I had read this before my first child was born. Joel's series of books have sparked a major change in our household eating habits and I couldn't be happier! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kathleen | 6/11/2011

    " Loved this book. Very educational on the topic of food, whats in the foods we eat, and what it does to our bodies. I loved the ideas I got for good things to feel not only my children but myself as well. It changed our perspective on food a few years ago and has stuck with us. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Patricia | 5/18/2011

    " It was very good at explaining why you need to feed your children differently. So many of the problems I have as an adult are due to the way I ate as a child. We will be incorporating some of the suggestions for our family. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Chelsea | 4/5/2011

    " I've discovered that even with Dr Fuhrman, I have at least one issue with every diet book I've read. I guess I really like what he says, I just really don't like him. Good to read though. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Shayla | 1/25/2011

    " What do you say about a book that changed your life...(and I'm not being dramatic... it really did). I recommend everyone read this, whether you have kids or not, whether they're little or all-growed-up. Fantastic advice and information for anyone. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lindy | 12/31/2010

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jennifer | 10/17/2010

    " Awesome book. Everyone who cares about keeping their kids healthy should read it. Awfully repetitive, though. (He really wants those main ideas to stick!) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kathleen | 6/28/2010

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jami | 6/16/2010

    " Man, if I could feed my family things that would help them stay healthy and get over colds rather than going to the dr. and getting antibiotics I would for sure do it! I worry about anything that could weaken immune systems because that is what Crohn's is - an auto immune disorder. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Shelly | 4/28/2010

    " EVERY parent should read this book. Seriously. It has definitely changed the way I view food and what I will be feeding my children from now on. Much easier read than The China Study, with the same basic information. And I love the case examples he gave to drive the points home. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Alfajirikali | 4/14/2010

    " Scary! Thought provoking, though difficult to incorporate when the most basic aim is to ensure folks aren't missing a major article of clothing when they arrive at school (preferably on time). "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Robin | 3/3/2010

    " I highly recommend this to moms. It goes hand in hand with the new program our family is doing and although we are not forcing our boys to eat this way - there is a lot of great information but the recipes I like better are on fatfreevegan.com. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jen | 11/13/2009

    " will really change the way you feed your kids. Maybe not in every way shape or form that he thinks you should... but it really makes you think twice about a few things. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amy | 11/9/2009

    " This book made me very uncomfortable because I suspect Dr. Fuhrman is right about what diet is most healthy for my family, but I doubt my willingness/ability to implement the drastic changes he suggests. Still, this book has inspired me to makes some healthy adjustments and I like that. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Emily | 11/6/2009

    " Another really good book I wish I had read before having kids. Much of the same info from "Eat to Live" but more geared towards children and a lot easier to read. "
