Soil and Your Health
by Beatrice Trum Hunter

$5.95 - Softcover -122 pages

Healthy Soil is Vital to Your Health

Hardly a day passes without a new headline about the effects of global warning, species loss, and other distressing environmental news. Some experts caution that we have only one generation of time to reverse conditions in our polluted environment, or we shall experience irreversible damage. Many people feel that the problems are on such a vast scale, are so complex and overwhelming, that individual efforts are futile. They are wrong.

In Soil and Your Health, eminent health writer and environmentalist Beatrice Trum Hunter discusses the natural resource that grows our fruits and vegetables. The quality of food depends on the quality of the soil in which it is grown. Is organically produced food superior to conventionally grown food? How do earthworms and trace minerals benefit soil and the food and feed grown on it? How do intentionally applied fertilizers, pesticides and sludge as well as inadvertent contaminants affect soil? Hunter responds to the mounting soil quality crisis with hopeful answers and measures beginning in our own gardens and farms.
