From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Eat to Live and The End of Diabetes, an unflinching, provocative exploration of how our food is killing us and the ways in which we are unwitting participants in an unprecedented and exploding health crisis.

Fast food is far more than just the burgers, fries, and burritos served at chain restaurants; it is also the toxic, human-engineered products found in every grocery store across America. These include: cold breakfast cereals; commercial and preserved (deli) meats and cheeses; sandwich breads and buns; chips, pretzels, and crackers; fried foods; energy bars; and soft drinks. Fast foods have become the primary source of calories in the United States and consequently the most far-reaching and destructive influence on our population. The indisputable truth is that our highly processed diet is the source of a national health crisis that is exploding into a genocide with unseen tragic implications.

Heart attacks, strokes, cancer, obesity, ADHD, autism, allergies, and autoimmune diseases all have the same root cause – our addiction to toxic ingredients. New York Times bestselling author, board-certified physician, nutritional researcher, and leading voice in the health field Joel Fuhrman, M.D., explains why the problem of poor nutrition is deeper, more serious, and more pervasive than anyone imagined.

Fast Food Genocide draws on twenty-five years of clinical experience and research to confront our fundamental beliefs about the impact of what we eat. This book identifies issues at the heart of our country’s most urgent problems. Fast food kills, but it also perpetuates bigotry and derails the American dream of equal opportunity and happiness for all. It leaves behind a wake of destruction creating millions of medically dependent and sickly people burdened with poor-quality lives.

The solution hiding in plain sight — a nutrientdense healthful diet — can save lives and enable humans to reach their intellectual potential and achieve successful and fulfilling lives. Dr. Fuhrman offers a life-changing, scientifically sound approach that can alter American history and perhaps save your life in the process.

Quotes & Awards

  • “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

  • “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

  • “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.”
