Publisher Description

Harness the power of a nutrient-rich diet to ensure a lifetime free of illness and full of health!

In his private practice, Joel Fuhrman, M.D. helps families transform their eating habits and recover their health. His nutrient-rich eating plan can have a significant impact on your child's resistance to dangerous infections, and a dramatic effect on reducing the occurrence of illnesses like asthma, ear infections, and allergies. Dr. Fuhrman explains how you can make sure your children are eating right to maintain a healthy mind and body, and how eating certain foods and avoiding others can positively impact your child's IQ and success in school.

He also presents the fascinating science that demonstrates that the current epidemic of adult cancers and other diseases is closely linked to what we eat in the first quarter of life. Eating well in our early years may enable us to win the war on cancer. Bolstered by this scientific evidence, he helps you do everything you can to protect your child against developing diabetes, cardiovascular disease, autoimmune diseases, and cancer through a solid nutritional groundwork.

Featuring easy-to-prepare, kid-friendly recipes that will satisfy even the pickiest eaters, Disease-Proof Your Child will help your whole family will learn to establish life-long healthful eating habits.

Great information!

This information is well researched and very much needed in today's society. Every parent should read this book. I would even suggest that any person THINKING about wanting to be a parent should read this book to give their child the absolute best start that they possibly can. You can start even before conception. This book has well founded information and suggestions and is not fanatical or unrealistic. You can tell Dr. Fuhrman has children of his own. This is obvious in his flexible approach to food. Some of the information seems a bit redundant throughout, but it is perhaps needed since the general public is not getting the point. All people need real food nutrition to thrive. I can't say enough good things about this book. Worth more than every penny! You won't regret buying it, taking the time to read it or applying it. Hopefully more people will do all three!
