ABOUt HEALTHY EATING, HEALTHY WORLD
What’s good for you is also good for our planet. Heart disease and diabetes are completely preventable and even reversible for most people today by changing diet and lifestyle. This book shows you how.

Healthy Eating, Healthy World: Unleashing the Power of Plant-Based Nutrition is a powerful and eloquently written book that explores the dynamic physical, mental, social, and economic changes we experience with the adoption of a whole food, plant-based diet. Author J. Morris Hicks tells us why a plant-based diet is the single best choice we can make for ourselves, but also for the planet. Unlike other books that focus on the health benefits of a diet comprising mostly of whole plant food, Hicks takes this idea to the next level by also addressing environmental concerns, poverty levels, health care costs, and the energy crisis.
With the foreword by Dr. T. Colin Campbell and his son, Nelson Campbell, Healthy Eating, Healthy World aims to change the lives of millions of people by empowering them with knowledge and passion to take charge of their own health.
A former senior corporate executive with Ralph Lauren in New York, J. Morris Hicks has always focused on the “big picture” when analyzing any issue. In 2002, after becoming curious about our “optimal diet,” he began an intensive study of what we eat from a global perspective — discovering many startling issues and opportunities along the way.
Leveraging his expertise in making complex things simple, he is now delivering his powerful message in his book, on his daily blog, and in public speaking engagements — embarking on his new career as a writer, speaker, blogger, and consultant — promoting health, hope, and harmony on planet Earth.
