Now Maria Rodale, chairman of Rodale, sheds new light on the state of 21st century farming. She examines the unholy alliances that have formed between the chemical companies that produce fertilizer and genetically altered seeds, the agricultural educational system that is virtually subsidized by those same companies, and the government

    The Organic Manifesto will convert anyone who is on the fence about the benefits of organic food and farming. Maria Rodale’s well researched and easy-to-read manifesto is an articulate outpouring of convincing information that makes you want to stand firm and demand organic. She writes about the origins of conventional farming, why it’s so toxic for the planet and our bodies, and why chemicals aren’t necessary to produce an abundance of healthy food. She explains how organic farming mitigates global warming, produces the tastiest and most nutritious foods, and why a shift to organic is essential to creating a sustainable future. Maria’s passion pours off every page and is contagious. This is a wonderful and important book that everyone should read!

    I grew up in the 60′s and 70′s with my Mom’s strong opinion on organics and everything natural. I continued that approach to eating up to about 2006 where I spent about 3 years eating what others eat.

    I gained weight – 25% body weight increased! Diabetes, fatigue, growths on my thyroids and behavior alterations. I found that a large part of the issue was associated with MSG. However, that did not fix everything.

    This book provided an easy read to the problems of eating mass produced foods and the chemicals that can be found in and on them. It details how these chemicals enter our bodies and what they do to them.

    This was the other piece of the puzzle I was missing and I am so glad to have a book that I can easily read while gaining meaningful facts in quantities.

    I highly recommend this book for anyone not feeling quit right and wants to investigate more about the source of the potential problems.

    As she says, the solution is easy, go organic! After reading this book, you will probably never eat anything that is not organic again!

    I hadn’t thought much about the organic vs conventional/chemical debate. Organic seemed like a nice option if you can afford it but not really something to get too fussed about. When a friend gave me this book it totally turned that perspective on its head. I had no idea what actually went into the farming we take for granted but the research Maria Rodale has collected in this book was shocking. I’m writing this three days later and I still haven’t been able to stop thinking about it. This isn’t about more nutrients or feeling better about supporting your local farmer, this is about the health of my family and our country. This book will be the one that changes how you see the world, it did for me.

    Every American should read this book, to see what your leaders are hiding from you. As we could win the battle against cigarettes we can win against toxins in our food! Do this for yourself and your family, read this book, try to make better food choices and let your voice heard!

    This book is a qucik read, that doesn’t get lost in deep scientific details, but gives references if you have a science background and would like to further read up on current reserach.

    This is a must read. It is really enlightening even to someone that didn’t need to be convinced of why organic is good. I wish Organic didn’t need to be called organic. All other food should have to be labeled, Chemical. The why of the whole chemical thing is sad and somewhat daunting. But it’s one person at a time, we can do this.
