We are seeing an ever-increasing burden of chronic disease, primarily driven by our food and food system. This is perpetuated by agricultural, food and health care policies that don’t support health. We need to rethink disease and reimagine a food system and a health care system the protects health, unburdens the economy from the weight of obesity and chronic disease, protects the environment, helps reverse climate change and creates a nation of healthy children and citizens. This podcast is a place for deep conversations about the critical issues of our time in the space of health, wellness, food and politics. New episodes are released every Wednesday morning.

||CleanMiriam Horn on Why Big Farmers are Not Always the Bad Guys||This week I sit down with Miriam Horn of the Environmental Defense Fund and New York Times-best selling author.

Very informative. Cant wait to hear more!
Mark Gets It!!
I have always enjoyed Dr Hyman’s common sense approach to reversing the obesity plague. This episode is sooo enlightening and empowering. Keep up the great work. The tide is turning!!
Thankful for Dr. Hyman
Dr. Hyman first turned me around regarding the calorie in calorie out BS a couple years ago during his webinar series in 2016. He introduced many of us to the concept of the ketogenic diet and the wonders of fat! I’m glad his first podcast introduces the topic of addiction to processed food and sugar. You have to deal with that first or none of these great low carb high fat concepts matter. Dr. Hyman, please interview Dr. Glenn Livingston of “Never Binge Again” free e-book fame on Amazon, if you can. His techniques are nothing short of a miracle. Thank you for your podcast.
