Drawing on findings from leading health researchers as well as conversations with both chemical and organic farmers from coast to coast, Maria Rodale's Organic Manifesto irrefutably outlines the unacceptably high cost of chemical farming on our health and our environment. She traces the genesis of chemical farming and the rise of the immense companies that profit from it, bringing to light the government's role in allowing such practices to flourish. She further explains that modern organic farming would not only help reverse climate change by reducing harmful carbon emissions and soil depletion, but would also improve the quality of the food we eat, reduce diseases from asthma to cancer, and ensure a better quality of life in farming communities nationwide.
For every parent wondering how best to safeguard the health and safety of her children; for every environmentalist in search of a solution to the worsening crisis that afflicts our land, air, and waters; for every shopper who questions whether it is worth it to pay more for organic, Maria Rodale offers straightforward answers and a single, definitive course of action: we must demand organic now.
This enlightening book by Originator and Founder of Rodale's, is printed on recycled, acid-free paper.
Maria Rodale grew up on the first organic farm in America started by her grandfather JI Rodale. Today she proudly lives nearby in the Pennsylvania countryside, right where so much locally grown food comes from and right in the midst of nature, which inspires her daily. Due to her day job—CEO of Rodale Inc., the largest independent publisher in America—she spend lots of time in New York City, where she gets her fix of culture and urban energy. But more than anything, she loves to come home, where she spends plenty of time in the kitchen, talking, eating, cooking simple, good meals, and enjoying the company of family and friends—including three daughters born in three different decades. Between it all, she’s a writer, cook, organic enthusiast, romance-novel lover, and major music fan who does yoga.
