Diet for a Poisoned Planet: How to Choose Safe Foods for You and Your Family|
by David Steinman (Author)
Like Silent Spring, Diet for a Poisoned Planet took on an entire industry and
went onto become a classic work of environmental writing. Now reissued in a new
millennium edition, the work's in-depth look at the contaminants in individual
food items is updated with the latest Total Diet Study findings.
A motivating book, Diet for a Poisoned Planet changes people viscerally.
Steinman tells his own story of fishing in the Santa Monica Bay as a child and
how he went on to testify before Congress as an expert witness on the
contamination of his own body by the fish he ate. The book is written by a true
expert who has been a member of a National Academy of Sciences committee to
advise Congress on seafood safety legislation.
