“Plan B 2.0“, by Lester R. Brown
Lester R. Brown, president of Earth Policy Institute, surveys the worldwide environmental devastation wrought by breakneck industrialization and the heedless, auto-centric, “throwaway economy. Fortunately, Brown says, “all the problems we face can be dealt with using existing technologies,” at a manageable cost. He spends most of the book exploring advances in sustainable agriculture, wildlife and resource conservation, renewable energy, hyper-efficient cars, mass transit and appliances, and recycling. Available in bookstores. www.earth-policy.org.

“Diet for a New America“, by John Robbins.
Robbins covers factory farming, health & nutrition, and the environmental benefits of vegetarian diets. The content has been meticulously researched, with Robbins offering dozens of pages of footnotes. If you’re looking for a book with solid, hard proof of how vegetarians easily get plenty of protein, why meat is the #1 killer in the U.S., or how badly farm animals are treated, you won’t do better than this volume. Diet for a New America has been credited with launching the second wave of vegetarianism in the U.S. when it was published (and nominated for a Pulitzer) in 1987. It’s still timely today. www.foodrevolution.org.
“The China Study“, by T. Colin Campbell, PhD and Thomas M. Campbell II.
Quoting David Klein, Publisher/Editor of Living Nutrition Magazine; “The China Study is the most important book on nutrition and health to come out in the last 75 years. Everyone should read it, and it should be the model for all nutritional programs taught at universities. The reading is engrossing if not astounding. The science is conclusive. Dr. Campbell’s integrity and commitment to truthful nutrition education shine through.
Center for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI) has been a strong advocate for nutrition and health, food safety, alcohol policy, and sound science since 1971. CSP is a consumer advocacy organization whose twin missions are to conduct innovative research and advocacy programs in health and nutrition, and to provide consumers with current, useful information about their health and well-being. www.cspinet.org.
The International Vegetarian Union (IVU) – founded in 1908 when the first World Vegetarian Congress was held in Dresden, Germany.

Official website of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPPC) the overall United Nation / World Meteorological Organization that is tracking and evaluating the threat. Their most recent assessment was published in 2007 and is identifies as “AR4”, i.e., their fourth report since 1988.
A great website run by a group of bona fide climatologists. They take topical subjects and analyze them effectively on a peer reviewed basis. More current than the IPCC website and less technical.

CHILDREN’S HEALTH DEFENSE
Their tag line: READ THE SCIENCE NOW
The Children’s Health Defense Team (spearheaded by Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.) is devoted to the health of people and our planet. Our mission is to end the childhood health epidemics by working aggressively to eliminate harmful exposures, hold those responsible accountable, and establish safeguards so this never happens again.
We do what we do for many reasons. Some of us have children who have been injured. Some of us have seen an injustice and feel the need to step in where others fear to tread. Some of us are focused on the demand for scientific integrity, others on improving the health of this, and future, generations. Some of us are eager to help any way we can. But the one thing we all share is our passionate belief that we have public health policies and practices that are harming our children. For the future good health of our children and planet, we call for more research and transparency. https://childrenshealthdefense.org/

“Politics in Healing“ by Daniel Haley
is a book with information about alternative treatments that have been intentionally withheld from public knowledge. It explains who has prevented the truth from being revealed and how they got away with it. A must read for people that wonder why “everyone” doesn’t know about this or that treatment option.
“Racketeering in Medicine“, The Suppression of Alternatives, by Dr. James P. Carter.
Exposes how Americans are being deprived of effective, economical treatments because those treatments are not highly profitable for surgeons and pharmaceutical companies.
“Living Proof“ by Michael Gearin-Tosh
is another book with a new twist regarding alternative treatments. Professor Gearin-Tosh of Oxford University In Oxford, England tears into the “diagnosis” that is given him by the expert oncologist’s in England and the U.S. His prognosis was quite grim, being diagnosed with an aggressive form of multiple myeloma. The best-case scenario he was given was a “possible” 3-year life extension with treatment (Chemo & radiation). This book was written 8 years after he received that news. He gives new interesting insight that reveals the great difference between the medical community’s definitions of common English words (diagnosis) and our traditional understanding of those words. The book also describes the treatments that he is using to assure his FAR longer than expected abundant life.
This book is a powerful and substantiated expose of the medical politics that prevents promising alternative cancer therapies from being implemented in the United States.
Harry Hoxsey claimed to cure cancer using herbal remedies, and thousands of patients swore that he healed them. His Texas clinic became the world’s largest privately owned cancer center with branches in seventeen states, and the value of its therapeutic treatments was upheld by two federal courts. The medical establishment branded Hoxsey the worst cancer quack of the century and forced his clinic to Tijuana, Mexico, where it continues to claim very high success rates.
When Healing Becomes a Crime exposes the overall failure of the War on Cancer, while revealing how yesterday’s “unorthodox” treatments are emerging as tomorrow’s medicine. It probes other promising unconventional cancer treatments that have also been condemned without investigation, delving deeply into the corrosive medical politics and powerful economic forces behind this suppression.
