In this episode, Mark Hyman, M.D., director of the Cleveland Clinic Center for Functional Medicine and the author of Food Fix, discusses that if we can fix the food system, we can solve many big problems—namely the chronic disease/obesity epidemic, the rising costs of healthcare, as well as the big problems facing the environment. Mark first briefly lays out the health consequences of processed food with a focus on the gut microbiome. From there, Mark discusses the environmental consequences of industrial farming and lays out how we can affect change on the individual level, through policy and regulations, and perhaps most importantly through regenerative agriculture. Additionally, Mark talks about the potential health risks of consuming GMO foods, herbicides, and other chemicals used in industrial farming as well as the environmental consequences, such as the loss of soil, caused by those same fertilizers and methods of farming. We discuss: The negative consequences of the existing food environment [3:25]; What makes processed food so unhealthy? [9:00]; The gut microbiome: Inflammation from gut permeability and how to measure gut health [18:30]; Steps to fixing a bad gut—The Five R’s [24:30]; Some staggering health statistics, and which races might be more genetically susceptible [27:15]; An argument for government regulations and policies to fight back against a massive food industry with unlimited resources (and what we can learn from the tobacco story) [29:00]; Industrial farming and climate change: The degradation of soil and use of fertilizer [41:45]; Regenerative agriculture: Could it be the answer to food waste, our health problems, and the environment? [51:45]; Comparing the Impossible Burger to regeneratively raised beef [1:06:00]; GMO and Roundup—The potential health risks of consuming GMO foods sprayed with Roundup (glyphosate) and other herbicides and pesticides [1:08:15]; How the livelihood of farmers are being affected by big ag companies and the current industrial farming system [1:16:30]; The loss of biodiversity in our food, and what “organic” really means [1:19:00]; What can people do on the individual level to protect themselves as well as affect change to the toxic food system? [1:25:00]; What role does the USDA play in this “toxic” food environment and how do we fix it? [1:30:15]; The top 3 changes Mark would make if he was “food czar” [1:35:15]; Mark’s rebuttal against the argument that it’s best for the environment if we stop farming animals and move to a fully plant-based diet (and his argument for “agriculture 2.0") [1:36:30]; What is Mark’s overall mission with the work that he’s doing? [1:40:30]; Bread in the US vs. Europe: Why does bread (and wheat products) taste different and potentially cause less health problems in Europe versus the US? [1:42:00]; and More.

In honor of Dr. Hyman’s upcoming book, Food Fix (foodfixbook.com), out on February 25th we are sharing a recent interview he did on Feel Better, Live More with Dr. Rangan Chatterjee.***Why We Need To Fix Our Food System with Mark HymanIs it possible to create a food system that promotes health, not disease? One that regenerates ecosystems, reverses climate change and ensures no one, least of all the poorest in society, is endangered?My guest on this week’s podcast believes it is. He is functional medicine doctor and New York Times bestselling author, Dr Mark Hyman. Mark and I talk about everything from how processed food is addictive by design, to the powerful role good nutrition, from real food, could have in hospitals, schools and prisons. We discuss why soil depletion from intensive farming is one of the biggest drivers of climate change – and why that vegan burger may not be the environmentally friendly option.Despite the serious subject matter of this conversation, I’m sure you’ll come away feeling hopeful. Mark doesn’t simply highlight the problems we’re facing. He identifies the ‘fix’, providing practical, positive solutions. It’s a call to action that we can all do our bit to answer.Show notes available at drchatterjee.com/98Follow me on instagram.com/drchatterjee/Follow me on facebook.com/DrChatterjee/Follow me on twitter.com/drchatterjeeukDISCLAIMER: The content in the podcast and on this webpage is not intended to constitute or be a substitute for professional medical advice, diagnosis, or treatment.

Mark Hyman is one of the foremost practitioners of functional medicine, one of its earliest advocates, and is certainly one of its best spokesmen. On this episode of Health Theory with Tom Bilyeu, Mark Hyman explains the rationale behind functional medicine and describes its most important features. He also gives detailed advice on improving the diet, talks about what it means to say that food is information, and discusses the connection between the body, mind, gut and brain.  Get a copy of Mark's new book "Food Fix" here: https://amzn.to/38mWyY8 SHOW NOTES: What does it mean to say the body is an ecosystem?

It’s time we stopped thinking about the way we eat only in terms of our health—we need to recognize the global impact of food. We need to eat in a way that combines good science with common sense. We need to not just include our health in the equation but also the biodiversity of the planet and our ability to grow food for future generations. So how do we do that? We’ve all been told we should go vegan to save the planet, but even if you don’t eat animals conventional agriculture kills 7 billion animals a year through habitat destruction. Not to mention, massive amounts of greenhouse gases are emitted to produce processed soy foods even if you completely avoid beef. Then people preach Paleo or keto but eat lots of factory-farmed meat, which also produces massive amounts of greenhouse gases, and is not something you want to put in your body. Our food system is fundamentally flawed. That’s why I wrote my new book Food Fix that just hit shelves yesterday! To share all the solutions for creating a food system that helps both our bodies and the planet thrive. I’m really excited to tell you more about it. This week on The Doctor’s Farmacy we’re sharing part two of the conversation we started last week, with my good friend and business partner Dhru Purohit as the host. We dig into the problems that led me to write Food Fix and how we can all take action starting today. This episode is brought to you by Joovv and ButcherBox.I recently discovered Joovv, a red light therapy device.

The way we grow food now is destroying our ability to grow it in the future. And the way we’re growing it now is making us sicker and more broke than ever before. Food is our #1 killer, even more so than smoking and guns.Our government supports the overproduction of the top crops for processed foods—corn, soy, and wheat—and Big Food reaps the benefits by turning them into sugary, starchy, highly addictive foods that cause chronic diseases. Diseases that are killing us and could be prevented.This all comes down to our food system. The way food is grown, transported, processed, consumed, and wasted in our country is contributing to these problems and so much more—especially some of our most urgent ones like climate change. That’s why I wrote my new book Food Fix: How to Save Our Health, Our Economy, Our Communities, and Our Planet—One Bite at a Time. And today on The Doctor’s Farmacy I’m excited to trade places and be the interviewee with my good friend, business partner, and host of The Broken Brain Podcast, Dhru Purohit. When I got very sick decades ago, I took on the mission to use Functional Medicine to help myself and my patients get over needless suffering. There are so many things we can do to prevent unnecessary health struggles and related deaths, and food is one of the most powerful.This episode is brought to you by Thrive Market.

U.S. taxpayers are footing the bill for the growing of processed foods (through agricultural subsidies for the raw materials of processed food—namely wheat, corn, and soy), and for providing the poor quality processed food and soda to the poor (through our food stamps program). Yet the federal government has repeatedly denied cities and states the right to enact basic policy reform measures, despite evidence to show that incentivizing healthy food and disincentivizing unhealthy food has been proven effective. And it is not just bureaucrats who have opposed policy change. Many anti-hunger groups and national food banks, like the Food Research Action Center, or FRAC, have used their political influence to resist efforts to ban sugary drinks from the food stamp program, or SNAP. In this mini-epissode, Dr. Hyman examines three government agencies that are promoting unhealthy foods and how a change in food policy could shift our health and the health of our communities and planet.

Sales are going down for soda and processed food in the US and Europe, but they're dramatically rising in Asia, Africa, Latin America, and the Middle East, and it's not by accident. It's by design. The globalization of our processed industrial food has allowed Big Food and Big Agriculture to flood the world with disease causing products. Food companies are transforming local diets, uprooting healthy traditional foods that people have been eating for centuries, and replacing them with ultra-processed frankenfoods. It's a huge problem. Dr. Hyman dives in to the topic of globalized junk food and much more in this mini-episode. You can also learn more about these topics in Dr. Hyman's new book, Food Fix. www.foodfixbook.com

Today we are joined by psychiatrist/physician and host of the Fundamental Health podcast, Dr. Paul Saladino. Dr. Saladino tells us about his journey through the world of nutrition as a curious, health-conscious individual, culminating ultimately in his adoption of the carnivore diet. We discuss the benefits of elimination diets and evaluate the healthfulness of various plant foods in depth. In addition, we discuss the connection between the gut and the brain.
You are the creator of your mind, body, and universe. Our experience of the world, our identity, and our physical reality are based on our learned perceptions. But when we get aware of our own awareness and ask ourselves some important questions, we can break down false beliefs of our own experience in this life to end suffering and find infinite joy and possibility. If this sounds pretty deep, it is. But as my guest on this week’s episode of The Doctor’s Farmacy explains it can actually be quite simple. Dr. Deepak Chopra is the founder of The Chopra Foundation, a non-profit entity for research on wellbeing and humanitarianism, and Chopra Global, a modern-day health company at the intersection of science and spirituality, is a world-renowned pioneer in integrative medicine and personal transformation. Chopra is a Clinical Professor of Family Medicine and Public Health at the University of California, San Diego.

Fish is one of the most nutritious food sources on the planet, especially when it comes to protein. But I’m usually scared to eat it. That’s because some seafood is at risk for toxicity that can harm our health, not to mention certain aquaculture methods are contributing to declining populations and even the acidification of our oceans. It’s not all bad, but it is complex. There are several important things we should think about in order to reap the health benefits from fish and act as environmental stewards at the same time. To better understand seafood I sat down to talk with Paul Greenberg for this week’s episode of The Doctor’s Farmacy. Paul is the bestselling author of Four Fish, American Catch, and The Omega Principle. A regular contributor to the New York Times and many other publications, Mr. Greenberg is the writer-in-residence at the Safina Center, a Pew Fellow in Marine Conservation and the recipient of a James Beard Award for Writing and Literature. He appears frequently on American and international radio and television programs and is the featured correspondent and co-writer of the 2017 PBS Frontline documentary The Fish On My Plate which, along with his TED talk, has reached millions of viewers.This episode is brought to you by ButcherBox.
