Martin Grassberger - Quiet Death

Why we need an agricultural revolution if we want a healthy future

Environmental pollution, industrial agriculture and depletion of arable soil cause chronic illnesses. What can be done?

While the world population is rapidly heading for 8 billion, and more and more people want to enjoy a slice of prosperity, chronic illnesses are gradually spreading across all age groups and social classes. Warnings about imminent threats such as environmental pollution, soil depletion and loss of biodiversity largely go unheard. Human biologist and doctor Martin Grassberger demonstrates a direct link between the ruthless destruction of nature and the creeping epidemic of chronic illnesses. The insights are sobering, but Grassberger also indicates possible ways to remedy the current global health and environmental crisis. A highly relevant book!

Thomas Weber - A Good Day has 100 Points

... and other ways to change the world, day for day

We are living on borrowed time – the message has reached most people now. But is it much help to be told no-one should be consuming more than 6.8 kilos CO2 a day? How can we still have a satisfying life? This book provides concrete answers: “A good day has 100 points,” an open-source campaign has claimed, evaluating everything we do, every consequence of our daily lives, using a points system. The system is derived from academic research, which Thomas Weber has used as a basis for his book, thinking it through and applying it to daily life. He introduces initiatives such as ‘wwoofing’ and ‘foodsharing’, visits repair networks, and explains why we should be eating carp rather than tuna fish.

Thomas Stollenwerk - The Black and White Book of Milk

Milk is traditionally seen as a healthy staple food, especially in the western world. But its image has seen a significant shift in recent years. Since the cessation of EU milk quotas, the dairy industry has focused on increased production and on opening up new markets, especially in the Asian world. This expansion is leading to changes in the methods of animal husbandry. The rapid development divides milk producers into winners and losers of the restructuring. But what form of milk production do the farmers and consumers want? How healthy is milk in truth? And why is the milk market booming in the first place? What are the positive and negative aspects of this industry? Thomas Stollenwerk has written a factual book about milk that leaves no question unanswered.
