In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, I’m excited to bring back a guest who regularly appears on Bulletproof Radio because of his functional medicine expertise and his contributions to the health of people around the world. He’s always innovating and pushing boundaries of what’s possible for human wellness.
Dr. Mark Hyman is a practicing family physician and an internationally recognized leader, speaker, and educator. He’s also a 12-time New York Times best-selling author. But it’s his brand-new book, “Food Fix: How to Save Our Health, Our Economy, Our Communities, and Our Planet—One Bite at a Time” that he says is the most important one he’s ever written.
“Wait a minute,” Dr. Hyman says. “If food is not only making people sick, it’s also destroying our environment. It’s causing climate change. It’s causing social injustice. It’s threatening our kids’ academic performance in school, their future productivity and success, our global competitiveness, and our national security because kids are too fat or unfit to fight, leading to poverty, mental illness, violence.”
As you listen, you’ll find out why Dr. Hyman is:
- invested in the health and economic impact of our food system;
- working to save our food environment; and
- taking on the many inequalities and injustices of our modern food industry.
