Die Erde könnte die gesamte Weltbevölkerung — einschließlich aller Tiere — problemlos ernähren. Aber mit Nahrungsmitteln kann man Geld verdienen, die Lebensmittelbranche ist die größte und mächtigste Industrie des gesamten Planeten. Je mehr Einfluß die Konzerne auf unsere Essgewohnheiten haben, je mehr die Landwirtschaft und damit die Nahrungsmittelerzeugung industrialisiert und standardisiert wird, desto mehr lässt sich verdienen, desto größer werden Macht und Einfluß der Marktteilnehmer. Aus dem marktwirtschaftlichen Gesetz des stetigen Wachstums hat sich für die Nahrungsmittelerzeugung ergeben, dass Pestizide, Genveränderungen, Monokulturen und Massentierhaltung zu angeblich unabdingbaren Faktoren geworden sind, denen auch die kleinsten Bauern in den abgelegensten Winkeln der Welt unterworfen werden - die Patentierung von Saatgut macht es möglich. Wenn wir uns also hier und heute dazu entscheiden im Supermarkt ein Schnitzel oder ein Steak zu kaufen, bewirken wir damit unter anderem, dass irgendwo auf der Welt ein Kind hungrig ins Bett gehen muss, weil seine Tagesration Getreide ins Ausland verkauft wurde, wo sie dazu dient Schweine zu füttern, die in engen Käfigen meterhoch übereinander stehen und ihr gesamtes Leben in einem Fäkalienregen der Tiere über ihnen stehen. Band 2 beschäftigt sich mit den Auswirkungen unseres Konsumverhaltens auf die Nahrungsmittelerzeugung in der ganzen Welt, hinterfragt wie die Marketingmaschinerie der Lebensmittelindustrie den Verbrauchern immer ungesündere Produkte schmackhaft macht und wie deren Erzeugung immer mehr Ressourcen sinnlos verschwendet. So werden für die Erzeugung von einem Kilo ungesunden und stark belasteten Fleisches 16 Kilo Getreide verbrauch — von all dem Wasser, dem erzeugten Methan und Kot und dem Transport rund um die Welt einmal abgesehen.
Bioactives in Fruit
Author: Margot Skinner, Denise Hunter
Publisher: John Wiley & Sons
For centuries we have known that fruit is important for health, but we are only just beginning to fully understand why. Bioactives in Fruit: Health Benefits and Functional Foods aims to summarise some of our current knowledge on the bioactive compounds that are associated with the health benefits of specific fruits with a strong emphasis on the validation of health benefits by human intervention trials. Reflecting the current interest in food and health, the book includes strategies to retain and enhance the bioactives in fruit through breeding, growing conditions, fruit storage, processing into ingredients and production of functional foods. To accomplish this task authors with expertise in biology, chemistry, pharmacology, food science, nutrition, medicine, and horticulture have contributed. They come from universities, government and industry funded research institutes and biotechnology and food companies in Europe, the United States, Asia and New Zealand to give the book a broad perspective. This book, describing fruit bioactives, their health benefits when consumed as a food and related topics regarding their development into fresh or processed functional foods, will be of use to postgraduate students, researchers, functional food product developers, food regulators and anyone who has curiosity about why fruit is good for you. The information contained within will provide plant breeders with new targets for the development of value-added horticultural products, and will also provide nutritionists and dieticians with a useful resource for developing strategies to assist in preventing or slowing disease onset or severity. Bioactives in Fruit: Health Benefits and Functional Foods is a major resource which will be required reading for anyone working in the fields of health and functional foods.

Author: Dr. Josh Axe
Doctor of Natural Medicine and wellness authority Dr. Josh Axe delivers a groundbreaking, indispensable guide for understanding, diagnosing, and treating one of the most discussed yet little-understood health conditions: leaky gut syndrome. Do you have a leaky gut? For 80% of the population the answer is “yes”—and most people don’t even realize it. Leaky gut syndrome is the root cause of a litany of ailments, including: chronic inflammation, allergies, autoimmune diseases, hypothyroidism, adrenal fatigue, diabetes, and even arthritis. To keep us in good health, our gut relies on maintaining a symbiotic relationship with trillions of microorganisms that live in our digestive tract. When our digestive system is out of whack, serious health problems can manifest and our intestinal walls can develop microscopic holes, allowing undigested food particles, bacteria, and toxins to seep into the bloodstream. This condition is known as leaky gut syndrome. In Eat Dirt, Dr. Josh Axe explains that what we regard as modern “improvements” to our food supply—including refrigeration, sanitation, and modified grains—have damaged our intestinal health. In fact, the same organisms in soil that allow plants and animals to flourish are the ones we need for gut health. In Eat Dirt, Dr. Axe explains that it’s essential to get a little “dirty” in our daily lives in order to support our gut bacteria and prevent leaky gut syndrome. Dr. Axe offers simple ways to get these needed microbes, from incorporating local honey and bee pollen into your diet to forgoing hand sanitizers and even ingesting a little probiotic-rich soil. Because leaky gut manifests differently in every individual, Dr. Axe also identifies the five main “gut types” and offers customizable plans—including diet, supplement, and lifestyle recommendations—to dramatically improve gut health in just thirty days. With a simple diet plan, recipes, and practical advice, Eat Dirt will help readers restore gut health and eliminate leaky gut for good.
