Revered nutrition and health expert, PBS personality, and bestselling author of Eat to Live, Super Immunity, and The End of Diabetes, Dr. Joel Fuhrman, delivers a hard-hitting, culture-shifting examination of the role fast and processed food plays in our nation’s health crisis and offers a program to help us discover a lasting solution, including a two-week meal plan and eighty recipes.

We’re eating our way to discomfort, unhappiness, disease, and premature death. Processed and fake foods have become the primary source of calories in the United States—a trend that is growing across the developed world. While these “Frankenfoods” efficiently feed the majority of our citizens, they do not contain the sustaining biological and chemical properties of food produced in nature. This fast-food solution is causing a fast-food genocide that is shaping our bodies and our futures, Joel Fuhrman, MD, warns.

Eating these unhealthy foods make us fatter and profoundly affects our brains, behaviors, and even our genetic makeup, leaving us helpless to social forces that will keep us eating fast food forever, he explains. They create an avalanche of harmful problems—chronic disease, lowered intelligence levels, and attention deficits that are intrinsically linked to poverty, reduced educational and occupational opportunities, and even increased drug addiction, violence, and crime.

An urgent call to action, Fast Food Genocide also provides a clear and very achievable solution. While food can destroy the world, it can also heal it. We must take back control of our diet—by eating specific natural ingredients in a balanced way—and in doing so, our right to a healthy, long life. “Greater knowledge leads to a solution; a solution to your personal health issues and a solution for our society,?” Dr. Fuhrman writes. “But it starts with you.”

Quotes & Awards

  • “Dr. Fuhrman connects the dots not only between food and our obesity and diabetes epidemic but food and almost everything that’s wrong with our society…Should be required reading for every member of Congress and anyone who cares about social justice.”

    Mark Hyman, MD, New York Times bestselling author

  • “Joel Fuhrman has long been a leader in nutritional medicine, and now he puts his expertise to work for those who need it most. With his guidance, we can turn the tide on our most critical health problems.”

    Neal Barnard, MD, New York Times bestselling author

  • “Is it fair to label fast food a genocide? Fuhrman says, ‘Yes,’ as he cites the dictionary definition, ‘the deliberate destruction of an entire race or nation,’ and ticks off the ways ‘fast-food malnutrition’ causes weight gain and chronic inflammation. Fuhrman calls on readers to eat foods in their unprocessed states and to beware of additives…After reading his passionate case for why we need to eat leafy greens rather than relying on supplements, health-conscious eaters will find much to validate their beliefs.”
