Most of the processed foods on supermarket shelves (75%!) contain genetically engineered ingredients. These foods range from soda to soup, crackers to condiments, and their long-term effects on human health and ecology are still unknown. Public concern has been steadily intensifying. The GMO Deception, the new book from the Council for Responsible Genetics, gathers the best, most thought-provoking essays by the leading scientists, science writers and public health advocates on this subject. They address such questions as:

  • Are GM foods safe and healthy for us?
  • Will GM food solve world hunger?
  • Who controls the power structure of food production?
  • Are GM foods ecologically safe and sustainable?
  • Why is it so difficult to get GM foods labeled in the United States?
  • What kinds of regulations and policies should be instituted?
  • How is seed biodiversity, of lack thereof, affecting developing countries?
  • Should animals be genetically modified for food?
  • How are other countries handling GM crops?

This definitive book encourages us to think about the social, environmental and moral ramifications of where this particular branch of biotechnology is taking us, and what we should do about it.

Plastic is everywhere we look. Our computers and children's toys are made out of it, and our water and slices of American cheese are packaged in it. But why is there so much and what is it doing to our bodies? Is it possible to use less plastic and be happier and healthier?

In Plastic Purge, ecologist Michael SanClements has put together the most up-to-date and scientifically backed information available to explain how plastics release toxins into your body and the effect they have on your health (and that of your children). Both approachable and engaging, Plastic Purge provides easy-to-follow advice for how to use less plastic, thereby reaping the benefits such as eating a healthier diet and living with less clutter. Dividing plastics into three separate categories, SanClements shows you how to embrace the good (items such as your phone or medical equipment), avoid the bad (food storage containers and toys that contain toxic chemicals), and use less of the ugly (single-use plastic that's just plain wasteful).

With the help of Michael SanClements’s Plastic Purge, you and your family will develop easy habits to live healthier and happier lives.

Around the globe most people get their calories from “annual” agriculture: plants that grow fast for one season, produce lots of seeds, then die. Every single human society that has relied on annual crops for staple foods has collapsed. Restoration Agriculture explains how we can have all of the benefits of natural, perennial ecosystems and create agricultural systems that imitate nature in form and function while still providing for our food, building, fuel and many other needs … in your own backyard, farm or ranch. This book, based on real-world practices, presents an alternative to the agriculture system of eradication and offers exciting hope for our future.
