Editorial Reviews

Review

"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

Format: Paperback
Over the last twenty thirty years I have read a number of books dealing with diet and the impact it has on our bodies and our planet. One of the first was John Robbins, Diet for a New America. Healthy Eating Health World picks up where books like Robbins' left off and offers a current, fact based perspective on this critically important topic. It clearly explains how the answer to so many of our own individual health problems and those of the earth on which we reside, can be solved simply by what we choose to eat.

Hicks raises all the right issues but does so in a way that is readily approachable and nonthreatening, even to members of the mainstream medical community, many of whom are not yet enlightened about the subject.

The book is exceptionally well written. I finished it in a few hours not because I am a speed reader but because it is a "great read." Although the topics covered address life and death decisions we make every day, the clever wording and subtle humor make reading it a pleasure.

I am buying copies to give as gifts to family, friends and business associates. I can't think of anything more valuable I could give people I care about.

I note the author's "Blinding Flash of the Obvious - in 2003." The author is a self-proclaimed "Big Picture Guy." He demonstrates this daily in his brief, focused blogs on healthy eating, healthy world on WordPress (hpjmh.com). This just-published book (Sept. '11) lets us have an excellent way to share his education on the huge benefits to health, health costs, environment, world hunger and animal treatment that result by switching to plant-based, whole-foods nutrition.

My family of four has been on this optimal nutrition for best human health program since Jan. 2003 (same year as Hick's "Blinding Flash"), after we all participated in Dr. John McDougall's 10-day "Total Health Solution" Clinic. I am 75 and have no known chronic diseases and do not take any medicines, not even statins, aspirin, and supplements (except for B12). Making the many changes has been an exciting, fun, rewarding journey.

To give a great boost to others to get on this worthy journey, gift them with Jim Hick's powerful educational and motivational 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 for me in understanding what good nutrition really is. It's not about being a vegetarian or a vegan. It's about what you DO eat, not 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.

I have been "into" nutrition and fitness for most of my life. I remember when "athletic supplementation was raw eggs, raw liver, hoffman wheat germ oil, brewers yeast and plenty of milk.

I am closing on 60 and still work out 1 to 2 times a day.....from weight lifting, pilates reformer, yoga to 3-4 sessions of P90X2 prior to dinner in the evening.

Over the years I was pulled in just about every direction that "nutrition-ism" has taken us. And over the years, the vast amount of clinical data disproving last year's important life-changing data makes your brain swirl. What is real when it comes to feeding a healthy body|????

Prior to reading this book I read (listened to on cd) "Wheat Belly". By reading the data in "Wheat Belly" one becomes very suspicious of putting whole wheat or any wheat based product in one's body. The data made excellent sense and I took some more wheat out of my diet. Not being a heavy wheat eater, it wasn't a big challenge.

But if one listens to "Healthy Eating" ...whole grains in the form of wheat become a health item! hmmmmmmmmmm, are these people cross checking each other's data at any point in time?

I have been a successful direct marketer for a quarter century and at one time I was a distributor for a company that had the exclusive rights to Dr Earl Mindell's nutritional products. During that phase Dr Mindell was heavily focused on the benefits of soy. So we added lots of soy to our diets. Soy is promoted as a healthy alternative to meat in Healthy Eating too...

However, most recent nutritional articles are steering us far far away from soy.

This will be short and sweet. Jim Hicks has written the most comprehensive survey of the arguments for every living soul to adopt a plant-based diet presently available. He covers it all. Health. Economic. Environmental. Ethical. It's all here in one very readable volume. My one quibble is that the Leaf program seems to detract from the main thrust of the book. I guess if people won't swallow the whole (no pun intended) story, then maybe less is better than none -- but not much better in terms of health. It is somewhat amazing that someone without a science or medical background was able to pull all of this together AND present it in a logical cogent manner.

I will be recommending Healthy Eating Healthy World to all of my patients. Now if we could just get our legislators to read it. Buy it today and a couple other copies for your family and friends.

BTW, for an excellent video introduction to the reasons to be a vegan, look at the You Tube piece entitled "Why Vegan." If you haven't watched this hour-long lecture to a college class, do so as soon as you can.

My congrats to Hicks for a long-needed summary superbly done!
