The revised version was released by Little Brown in January 2011.  His recent works include Super Immunity and Disease-Proof Your Child and has had published a total of 7 books on human nutrition to date.


Dr. Fuhrman is actively involved in scientific research in human nutrition. His discoveries on food addiction and human hunger were published in the scientific journal, Nutrition Journal, in November 2011 entitled, The Changing Perception of Hunger on a High Nutrient Density Diet.  Dr. Fuhrman is the research director of the Nutritional Research Project - a project of the National Health Association.  Dr. Fuhrman is on the board of directors of the American College of Lifestyle Medicine.  He is also a member of the Whole Foods Market scientific advisory board.

Review:

“Dr. Fuhrman's powerful and practical guidelines apply for conditions ranging from the common cold to serious heart problems. This program provides an alternative to the costly and all-to-common side effects of surgery and drugs.” ―Andrew Nicholson, M.D., Director of Preventive Medicine, Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine

“By individually tailoring nutrition plans based on a case-by-case basis, Fuhrman has treated hundreds of patients with rheumatoid arthritis successfully.” ―Vegetarian Times

“This is where the future of medicine should be heading.” ―Ronald Cridland, M.D.

“This is neither alternative medicine nor conservative medicine, but rather progressive medicine. Dr. Fuhrman's approach offers individuals suffering from [chronic] diseases the only real chance for a meaningful cure. I have been fortunate to observe many of these outcomes firsthand and can testify to the power of this approach for certain diseases.” ―James Craner, M.D., M.P.H.

“Dr. Fuhrman's book is revolutionary. It shows clearly and unmistakably the way to recover health, and could change the prevailing way of treating disease.” ―Theodore Coumentakis, M.D.

“If you are lucky, you will read Dr. Furhman's book before you have subjected yourself to medications and medical procedures. This book is for those who want to take charge over their health and well-being, and for those who want to embark on a journey toward a more satisfying life.” ―Don Jeret, M.D.

“I know that every health seeker in America will want to read this book. It provides a working knowledge of vital information that is currently known to relatively few people. Share it with those you love.” ―John Pilla, M.D.
