Martin Grassberger - THE INVISIBLE WEB OF LIFE

How microbiomes, ecological diversity and nutrition maintain our health

Best-selling author Martin Grassberger reveals new ways in which we can protect ourselves from harmful environmental influences.

How can we maintain our physical and mental health in these times of new pandemics, chronic illnesses, increasing urbanisation and constant media bombardment? Based on extensive ecological observations and taking into account the latest scientific insights in microbiome research, Grassberger draws conclusions on the fundamental reciprocal processes between us and our environment – and demonstrates how we can lead a good and healthy life, despite disconcerting developments. In “The Invisible Web Of Life”, Grassberger focuses on the human experience and explains how each individual can protect themselves, their children and the environment.

Martin Grassberger - Quiet Death

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

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 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.
