Books helping organic grow: What Your Food Ate
In their latest book, David and Anne tackle the question scientifically: “Is my health affected not only by what I eat but by HOW it is produced?”
“David Montgomery has a knack for writing books that help the organic movement grow…” Read Linley's letter about the soon-to-be-released What Your Food Ate discussion with David Montgomery in this week's letter:
David Montgomery has a knack for writing books that help the organic movement grow.
He has a wonderful talent for taking a simple claim (like when your farmer says, “Healthy soils make healthy animals and healthy people”) and backing it with reams of peer-reviewed research and historical context.
In his first book, Dirt: The Erosion of Civilizations…
David brought us on an agricultural journey through time and taught us how we must avoid the mistakes of the past if we are to survive into the future. Just how many people can the earth support in perpetuity?
In The Hidden Half of Nature…
David Montgomery and Anne Bikle took us on a ride in their magic school bus to the rhizosphere so we could visualize how it resembles our gut turned inside out! They not only explored what foods bring us health, but explained why we should reframe the question to, “How do I foster a healthy microbiome?”
In Growing a Revolution…
David explored the ecological crises caused by agriculture and tells stories of the farmers showing us a better way. How do we shift our method of food production to one that is truly sustainable?
And now, in What Your Food Ate (published this week: June 21, 2022)…
David and Anne tackle the question scientifically:
- “Is my health affected not only by what I eat but by HOW it is produced?”
- “And if the answer is yes, how do we know this to be true?”
Fifty pages of peer-reviewed resources are synthesized, and David and Anne tell us we are just scratching the surface.
