Maria Rodale is an amazing and utterly down-to-earth woman. She is CEO and Chairman of Rodale Inc. and a tremendous champion of organic. In this book, Maria sheds new light on the state of 21st-century farming — bolstering her position that chemical-free farming may be the single most effective tool we have to protect our environment and, even more importantly, our health.
Marion Nestle is another mind we love. Her work has been the inspiration for so many of today's food influencers: she's the original! What to Eat has become the definitive guide to making healthy and informed choices about food. As Marion takes us through each supermarket section — produce, dairy, meat, fish — she explains the issues, cutting through foodie jargon and complicated nutrition labels and debunking the misleading health claims made by big food companies.
