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.
“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.”
“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.”
