From the Back Cover
Food shopping should be fun, but these days it’s downright confusing. Just
trying to eat well and make healthy and nutritious meals for our families has
gotten more and more complicated. Hormones, pesticides, antibiotics, mad cow
disease, genetic modification - what impact do these issues have on our diet,
our health, our waterways, our soil? How can the average person sift through
confusing labeling, conflicting news reports, and unfamiliar terminology in
order to select foods that are truly healthy and nutritious?
With The Organic Food Guide, Steve Meyerowitz, aka “Sproutman,” author of nine
other books on diet and nutrition, guides you through this maze of tough health
issues and new food choices. He steers you to healthier foods and shows you how
to find the bargains, too.
