Generation Extra Large
By Chris Woolston, Elaine Herscher, Lisa Tartamella
A new epidemic is gripping the world. You can see it in San Antonio and London, in Beijing and Tashkent: Far too many kids are far too fat, putting them on track to becoming the first generation in history to have a shorter life expectancy than their parents. And it's not their fault. It's not their parents' fault, either. It's not even entirely Ronald McDonald's fault, although it's time for him to wipe that smile off his face. Obesity is the biggest threat to our children's health today, and it's up to us to get serious about defending kids against it. Generation Extra Large reveals the cultural and economic causes of childhood obesity. It's not only television, video games and junk food. Parents work long hours that disrupt family eating and exercise. Schools compound the problem by lining the halls with soda machines, serving fast food and cutting back physical education and recess. Poverty plays a key role, with kids growing up in neighbourhoods where it's too dangerous to play and where unhealthy food is affordable and all too easy to get. But there is hope. Dedicated parents, educators, physicians, and community leaders are working to find creative, effective ways of helping our children slim down and stay healthy. The authors give voice to these crusaders, and provide checklists, interactive tests, and nutritional guides for concerned readers. Generation Extra Large explains why the epidemic has grown, reveals the consequences it has in store for our young people-and gives us tools to fight it.

By Ben Lilliston, Frances Moore Lapp, Ronnie Cummins
Stormy debates about genetically engineered (GE) food have raged throughout the world in recent years, and the issue is now more potent than ever. Seventy to eighty percent of processed foods now sold in supermarkets contain genetically engineered ingredients, and the trend is growing at a startling rate. This second, completely revised edition of Genetically Engineered Food is an all-in-one guide written specifically to help consumers educate themselves about the risks posed by GE foods. Ronnie Cummins and Ben Lilliston, both leading consumer advocates, provide comprehensive, up-to-the-minute, action-inspiring information, including how to identify GE foods, products to avoid, brands that are GE-free, and how to shop and act with a purpose. They discuss all of the ethical, environmental, and health arguments against GE food, how these foods are being regulated in the United States and abroad, and why consumers are right to oppose them. Genetically Engineered Foods is the first and still one of the few consumer-oriented guides addressing this important subject.
Good Cholesterol, Bad Cholesterol
By Anita Hirsch
High cholesterol is an important risk factor for heart disease, heart attack, and strokes. And although cholesterol screening is one of the most widely administered and evaluated blood tests, many people don't realize that our bodies require some cholesterol to function normally and remain confused about which cholesterol is the "good" one and which is the "bad." Now, in Good Cholesterol, Bad Cholesterol, Hirsch presents a clear, concise primer to all the varieties of this blood lipid, including HDL (high-density lipoprotein), LDL (low-density lipoprotein), VDL (very low density lipoprotein), and others, as well as the connection between the ways various types of fat affect cholesterol levels. Providing essential information about how cholesterol relates to heart disease, stroke, and other life-threatening medical conditions, this essential primer also provides guidance about how to manage your cholesterol levels,through diet, exercise, and stress management,for optimum, lifelong health.
