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.More

A Real Eye Opener!
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.
Eat to Live. Same concept and Author. Another great read!
Easy to listen to. Nice tone and pace.
I wanted to once I started, but I mostly listen to audio in the car so I broke it up in a few days.
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!
Loved this book!! So glad I found this.
I loved loved loved this book. I bought it on Amazon and then downloaded the audible. Dr Fuhrman is very convincing, educating, and encouraging. I loved his straight foward easy to understand presentation. He tends to be quite redundant but that is okay with me because it helped me to retain the information much much better. I also loved the narrators voice and especially the way she says "beans" and "cheese". But I digress. Very easy to listen to. I am putting this book to work for my family immediately.
