Overview


This book is all about the single most powerful move that humans can make to promote health, reduce obesity, lower the cost of health care, nurture our fragile environment, conserve our energy resources, feed the world's steadily growing population, and greatly reduce the suffering of animals in factory farms all over the world. As Dr. T. Colin Campbell says, "It turns out that if we eat the way that promotes the best health for ourselves, we also promote the best health for the planet."

Like a blinding flash of the obvious, the single most viable solution to all of these issues is an aggressive move in the direction of consuming much more whole, plant-based foods—not necessarily becoming vegetarian or vegan. This book clearly explains how and why we began eating the wrong food for our species and provides helpful guidelines for getting us back on the road to vibrant health and effortless weight-loss.

Fortunately, despite the incredible complexity of our current dilemma, the solution is refreshingly simple. It simply requires educating yourself, making better choices in what you eat, and then share all that you have learned with everyone you care about. There has never been anything more important in the history of the world.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"J. Morris Hicks has done us all a tremendous service. He has put together a simple, clear, and profoundly helpful guide to the extraordinarily powerful benefits of plant-strong nutrition. If you want to be healthy, read this amazing book. In a world hungry for hope, this book arrives at precisely the right time."
--John Robbins, bestselling author The Food Revolution and Diet For A New America

"Healthy Eating -- Healthy World is more than an eye-opening, fact-filled book about the causes of poor health. It is a map leading directly to the cure. In the process, it points the way toward solving the seemingly unrelated problems of environmental destruction and world hunger. It is sensible, direct, and right."
--Neal D. Barnard, MD, President, Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine

“What’s good for you is also good for our planet. Although heart disease and diabetes kill more people each year worldwide than all other diseases combined, these are completely preventable and even reversible for at least 95% of people today by changing our diet and lifestyle. This book shows you how.”
--Dean Ornish, M.D.; Founder, Preventive Medicine Research Institute; Clinical Professor of Medicine, University of California, San Francisco; and author of The Spectrum and Dr. Dean Ornish's Program for Reversing Heart Disease

Healthy Eating -- Healthy World is by far one of my favorite books. It is incredibly informative, well researched, and a must read for anyone who eats! It takes you on a journey towards adopting a plant-based diet in a way that isn’t overwhelming and provides much needed tips about eating this way for good.”
--Kim Barnouin, co-author of the #1 New York Times bestseller Skinny Bitch

“Poor nutrition is our leading cause of disease. Yet the biggest impediment to improving our health is that most people mistakenly believe they are eating a good diet. With the costs of disease out of control and threatening the economic health of our country, Healthy Eating -- Healthy World is a timely contribution, explaining in clear, easy-to-read language why our standard diet is making us sick, and how you can make simple choices that will improve your health, longevity and quality of life. This is a must-read book. Highly recommended!”
--Raymond Francis, M.Sc., (M.I.T.) scientist and bestselling author of Never Be Sick Again

“The same standard diet-style, rich in processed foods and animal products, and low in produce, that places people at high risk of heart attacks and cancers, is also rapidly destroying our environment. Healthy Eating -- Healthy World reports on critical information you must learn to help ourselves and our planet.”
--Joel Fuhrman, M.D., family physician and author of the bestselling Eat to Live

“J. Morris Hicks's world-changing book, Healthy Eating -- Healthy World, is compelling in transforming our health -- promoting dietary choices to be over 80% from whole plant foods. Not only will we restore our own fitness, vigor and happiness as we become healthier; we will be celebrating a world-wide paradigm shift by living in harmony with nature on our precious planet.”
--Alexandra Stoddard, author of bestselling Living a Beautiful Life and twenty-six other books

“Reading and implementing Healthy Eating -- Healthy World is the best prescription you will ever fill.”
--Howard F. Lyman, LL.D, author of Mad Cowboy

“In Healthy Eating -- Healthy World , the title tells it all, as author Jim Hicks masterfully resolves global challenges in a sensible, well-written, highly referenced must-read.”
--Caldwell B. Esselstyn, Jr., M.D., Director of Cardiovascular Disease Prevention and Reversal at the Wellness Institute of The Cleveland Clinic, and author of Prevent & Reverse Heart Disease

“We all know we should eat more fruits and vegetables -- with this book, we now know why. The authors make a well-documented case for why it is important for your personal health and why it is critical for the health of the planet. A compelling book; it is both informative and a pleasure to read!”
--Paul Allaire, Fortune 100 CEO (Xerox, 1990 - 1999)

"In Healthy Eating, his business mind shines with his exceptional ability to present a wealth of information in clear, precise prose.”
--VegNews, January/February 2012 issue

A former senior corporate executive with Ralph Lauren in New York, J. Morris Hicks has always focused on the "big picture" when analyzing any issue.

    If you're finally ready for change start with this book

    Easy to read, easy to understand, easy to get the big picture. If you are ready to make serious, positive, and lasting changes in your life that will improve your health and the planet and are trying to figure out how to do that - Read This Book. Mr. Hicks sends the message very clearly, making it easy to see that a plant-based diet is the right thing to do - for ourselves and our planet. I was already on the hunt to make some much needed changes to my current life-style and this book has been key forin understanding what good nutrition really is - FINALLY! It's not about being a vegetarian or a vegan. It's about what you DO eat, not just what you DON'T eat. I am unlearning what all of us have been taught throughout our entire lives of what constitutes "good nutrition". I was ready to make that paradigm shift and if you are too this book is for you.

    Good content, bad e-book disruption

    The nook version "cuts out" and puts you into the internet at page 52. I'll seek a refund tomorrow
