Publisher's Summary

Dr. Fuhrman presents the fascinating science that demonstrates how the current epidemic of adult cancers and other diseases is most closely linked to what we eat in the first quarter of life. He explains how a nutrient-rich diet increases a child's resistance to common childhood illnesses like asthma, ear infections, and allergies. Additionally, Dr. Fuhrman illustrates how eating his nutrient-rich diet during childhood is the most powerful weapon against developing cancer, cardiovascular disease, and autoimmune disorders in the future. Disease-Proof Your Child provides nutrient-rich dietary recommendations for children, and even offers guidelines and recipes that get even the pickiest eaters to enjoy healthy food.

"A timely response to America's health care crisis. The time to effectively institute healthy nutrition is during childhood. Dr. Joel Fuhrman provides solutions for children, parents, and physicians." (Caldwell B. Esselstyn, Jr., M.D., Preventive Cardiology, Cleveland Clinic Foundation)
"Dr. Fuhrman's latest book couldn't have come at a better time given the epidemic of obesity, cancer, diabetes, and heart disease which is reaching earlier and earlier into the lives of our children. It is destined to take its place among the most important child-rearing books ever written." (Mark A. Huberman, President, National Health Association)

A Real Eye Opener!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes! This book changed the way I looked at how I planned and made an effort to feed my kids. Processed is not always easier and just because they are kids they do not need to eat Junk.

What other book might you compare Disease-Proof Your Child to and why?

Eat to Live. Same concept and Author. Another great read!

What about Marie Caliendo’s performance did you like?

Easy to listen to. Nice tone and pace.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I wanted to once I started, but I mostly listen to audio in the car so I broke it up in a few days.

Any additional comments?

Once you read (listen) to this, it will change the way you think about nutrition. It is amazing to me that some of the issues children have (even ear infections) can be caused by poor nutrition. I really like how the author states that we are designed to be healthy.

If you are at all concerned about the amount of disease that is around us and want to give your family the best chance of not having to deal with that, I highly recommend this book.

There of course may be some things you do not agree with or fully get on board with but the general message is one that I think everyone can get something out of!

Easy listen and applicable to life.

The content in this book was simplified in comparison to the "parent" version. I would say that even if you don't have kids, I'd still recommend reading it. It was easy to understand and apply to real life, and it made sense as to why you would apply the concepts.
