NEW YORK, August 23, 2016—Dr. Mehmet Oz, America’s leading authority on health and well-being, will publish a book with Scribner in spring 2017. Titled Food Can Fix It, this ground-breaking guide will show readers how food can be transformative medicine with the power to change their health, looks, and even their happiness. Readers and viewers continually turn to his bestselling magazine, Dr. Oz The Good Life, and Emmy-Award winning daily television show, The Dr. Oz Show, to learn how the body works and ways to fuel it deliciously. Now this comprehensive book, Dr. Oz’s first in ten years, gives them a game plan for living well every day. Food Can Fix It will cover heart disease, fatigue, sleeplessness, pain, brain fog, inflammation, and much more. Filled with full-color photographs, the book also offers a 21-day meal plan and easy recipes. An audio edition will be released simultaneously by Simon & Schuster Audio.
“When you walk into a grocery store, you’re really walking into a pharmacy,” says Oz. “The power of food to heal is well proven—using it wisely can help fix many of the most common ailments that plague us.”
“In addition to being an eminent physician, Dr. Oz is a world-class communicator in any medium he chooses—from books to magazines and television—who has inspired millions to take charge of their health and their lives,” said Carolyn Reidy, President and CEO of Simon & Schuster, Inc. “We are delighted for the opportunity to again bring to readers worldwide his winning combination of groundbreaking medical information and accessible, practical plans and advice that will help them achieve healing, health and happiness.”
“Dr. Oz writes about harnessing the healing power of food with unmatched authority and warmth,” said Scribner Executive Editor Shannon Welch. “This book will be a boon to anyone who wants to live a healthier life.”
Welch acquired world and audio rights from Jacqueline Deval, Publisher of Hearst Books, a division of Hearst Magazines.
