Book Review: Eat Right For Your Type Hype

By Sally Eauclaire Osborne June 14th, 2006

Comments

Eating according to your blood type seems to be the hottest idea in nutrition today. Despite negative reviews in nearly every mainstream publication - nearly all of whom have proclaimed the diet to be "no bloody good" - Eat Right 4 Your Type by Peter J. D'Adamo, N.D. (Putnam, 1996) has become a bestseller. MORE...

Book Review: The Fluoride Deception by Christopher Bryson

By Claire Darling March 23rd, 2006

Comments

One of the attractions of exploring the Weston A. Price nutritional principles is the happy frenzy of touting butter’s benefits to friends and family. There is a real joy in sharing kefir cultures, sauerkraut tricks and new soup recipes. Introducing loved ones to the idea that they (and their trusted doctors) have been duped by industry is a decidedly less agreeable aspect of our expanding awareness. MORE...

Book Review: Gentle Birth, Gentle Mothering by Sarah J Buckley

By Joanne Hay February 4th, 2006

While driving home from dropping kids at school I was following a talk back discussion on Radio National about the pressures of modern family living; particularly the supposed tussle between loving one's children and loving one's partner. One women spoke about being in love with her husband and her children and how unusual this is amongst her friends. This was followed by a rash of callers declaring to be 'in love' with one's children was a nonsense. MORE...

Book Review: Nutrition and Physical Degeneration by Weston A Price

By Sally Fallon November 29th, 2005

Comments

More than sixty years ago, a Cleveland dentist named Weston A. Price decided to embark on a series of unique investigations that would engage his attention and energies for the next ten years. Possessed of an inquiring mind and a spiritual nature, Price was disturbed by what he found when he looked into the mouths of his patients. Rarely did an examination of an adult client reveal anything but rampant decay, often accompanied by serious problems elsewhere in the body such as arthritis, osteoporosis, diabetes, intestinal complaints and chronic fatigue. (They called it neurasthenia in Price's day.) But it was the dentition of younger patients that gave him most cause for concern. He observed that crowded, crooked teeth were becoming more and more common, along with what Price called "facial deformities"--overbites, narrowed faces, underdevelopment of the nose, lack of well-defined cheekbones and pinched nostrils.

Book Review : Nourishing Traditions By Sally Fallon and Mary G. Enig, PhD

If you only owned one recipe book, this would be it. It is a wonderful source of recipes, true to their traditional heritage and sourced from all over the world. It is also very contraversial in terms of the modern nutritional hegemony. If you're 'eating healthy' and aren't getting the positive changes in your health you desire, then perhaps the knowledge guiding you is incorrect. MORE...

Book Review : Stolen Harvest by Vandana Shiva

By Sally Fallon September 27th, 2005

Comment

"Over the past two decades every issue I have been engaged in as an ecological activist and organic intellectual has revealed that what the industrial economy calls 'growth' is really a form of theft from nature and people. . . . in agriculture as much as in forestry, the growth illusion hides theft from nature and the poor, masking the creation of scarcity as growth." So begins this extraordinary book, subtitled The Hijacking of the Global Food Supply, on the conflict between local food production and global capital. In seven elegant chapters, Indian writer and activist Vandana Shiva delineates how "the resources of the Third World poor are being stolen to generate profits for giant corporations." MORE...
