Empty Harvest puts together a sober picture of how interconnected man is to the earth, and how this connection is being destroyed link-by-link. While looking at the better-known manmade disasters, such as the "greenhouse effect," the indiscriminate use of toxic pesticides, and the wholesale destruction of the world's forests, it clearly focuses on the existing dangers inherent in our agricultural system. It provides startling new information about problems that have been hidden from the general public - the demineralization of our soil, the declining nutritional values of our food supply, the resulting weakening of our bodies' immune systems, and much more. Empty Harvest is a groundbreaking book that examines just what the total problem represents.

Reviews

“In a day when it is cheap and easy to be a doomsday prophet, Empty Harvest shines like a bright beacon of hope and ecological sanity. While exposing the dire consequences of thinking we can grow healthy food with poisons, this excellent book defines positive alternatives, and demonstrates their power to restore us to true health.”
-- John Robbins, Author of Diet for a New America

“To think that human disease may simply reflect the quality of earth’s topsoil is awe-inspiring…. When a physician considers the causes of his patient’s illness, it is too easy to blame a symptom. Reaching out for the quality of food consumed may be much closer to the cause of the disease. Anderson and Jensen lay out a picture of an Empty Harvest and propose constructive strategies to turn our emptiness around.”
-- Jonathan Collins, MD, Editor-in-Chief, Townsend Letter for Doctors
