Overview

Imagine that the New York Times tomorrow released some amazing news. A health treatment has been discovered that literally cures most forms of heart disease. But not just that. This treatment has a dramatic impact on most of the diseases Westerners face, including cancer, obesity, autoimmune diseases, diabetes, osteoporosis, Alzheimer's, and many many others. And this treatment is so inexpensive to administer that two-thirds of the medical establishment can be shut down as no longer serving any useful function.

It's really too much to believe, isn't it? But there's more.

This treatment has miraculous implications for the environment. By applying this treatment, we can eliminate the largest source of global warming, and dramatically reduce the waste that is polluting our water supply. We'll also dramatically improve the health and animal population of our oceans and seas.

And there's more.

By applying this treatment, we'll dramatically increase the supply of arable land, lowering the cost food and allowing us to feed everyone on this planet. Starvation can become a thing of the past.

And one last thing.

This treatment also has enormous moral implications, allowing us to eliminate almost all of the pain and suffering we are inflicting on the animals, most of which is hidden away from view, but is morally repulsive to anyone exposed to this suffering.

Now what if I told you that we don't have to wait for tomorrow's New York Times, that this treatment has been found, and that the amount of scientific data supporting the claims I just made is overwhelming. The "miracle" treatment is simple. It's eating a whole grain, plant-based diet.

Skeptical?

I'm not surprised.

But by the end of this book you'll be exposed to the overwhelming amount of evidence that supports every claim made above. You'll also get to hear the counterarguments made by skeptics and you'll get to decide for yourself whether these claims are true.

It's my hope that by the end of this book you'll be convinced and join our movement. You may just save your life and the planet in the bargain.

This revolutionary book is Healthy People, Healthy Planet: Unleashing the Power of Plant-based Nutrition by J. Morris Hicks, and it is th book that finally tackles all compelling reasons for adopting a plant-based diet -- from the environment to solving the world's hunger crisis. Additionally, T. Colin Campbell, acclaimed author of the bestselling book The China Study, provides a riveting foreword to Healthy People, Healthy Planet.

After reading this book, it'll be nearly impossible to ignore the truth: people were not meant to eat animals or animal products, and the time has come to stop.

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

--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)
