What's In Our Food?


Book ONE: Food



I've been wild about nature since I can remember. Working with GreenPeace after the Exxon Valdez spill was my first job with an environmental mission. Since and far before then, I've always strived to do what  I can to protect and learn from nature. My background includes a degree in ecology from College of the Atlantic in Bar Harbor, Maine, living in Alaska, and teaching elementary school in Chicago as well as  New Zealand. 


The vision for this book arrived nearly 30 years ago after  my parents fought and lost to cancer. I was intent to learn as much I could about disease--why and how disease happens, and what if anything we can do to prevent it or heal from it. Cause and effect.


What I found time and time again is that most diseases can be traced back to causes, in particular human-made problems in the environment--particularly in our food and water. Based on this idea, the Green Handbook was created to help You keep everyone you love healthy and protected, safe and sound.

I hope you find this book helpful.
