Unsavory Truth

Marion Nestle
Authors:
Marion Nestle

Whenever we turn on the TV, flip a page in a magazine, or glance at a flyer in the grocery store, we are constantly bombarded with nutritional advice. Almond products can boost your memory! Milk helps build up your bones! Cereal is part of a doctor-approved balanced breakfast for growing girls and boys! Study after study tells us what we should eat, how much, and when. Words like "superfood" and "guilt free" convince us that we're making the right choice when we pluck an item off the shelf and head for the checkout line. We count on nutrition science to guide us through the overwhelming choices in our local grocery store and helps us make the best decisions for our health.Except it often doesn't. Many of these studies we rely on to make decisions are not funded by unbiased third parties-they're actually funded by companies seeking to buoy their own products. As renowned food expert Marion Nestle reveals in Unsavory Truth, most nutrition societies, committees, and departments are actually in the food industry's pocket. Whether it's a study claiming moderate exercise is enough to cancel out the calories in sugary sodas (backed by Coca-Cola) or a report about how blueberries can reduce the risk of erectile dysfunction (backed by the US Highbush Blueberry Council), the food industry has learned how to turn selective disclosure and partisan probes into major profit. Like Big Pharma has corrupted medical science, so Big Food has corrupted nutrition. In a nation where more than two-thirds of adults and one-third of children are considered overweight or obese, it's never been more important to put our public health first. With stricter legislation for food companies and researchers, stricter policies for societies and journals, and better consumer education, Nestle argues that we have a fighting chance to get our country's nutrition back on track.With riveting prose and unmatched investigative rigor, Unsavory Truth reveals how big food companies took over nutrition science-and how we can take it back.

Stop Mass Hysteria

Michael Savage
Authors:
Michael Savage

In his new book, MASS HYSTERIA, #1 NYT bestselling author Michael Savage calls out the mass hysteria mongers and their methods, and shows Americans that we must look to history to understand the present, and avoid repeating the mistakes of the past.The defeat of "shoo-in" Hillary Clinton and the entire Democrat state has caused fractures in the Centrist, Left, Progressive, and Socialist factions of the party that have spread to the larger population. They are so hostile, so full of violent rage, that they cannot reason or converse. It is a phenomenon we have seen before in America. It is called mass hysteria. Thanks to social media and the corrupt mainstream media, the reach is so large it is an unprecedented "mass hysteria bubble." Michael Savage will discuss the cycles of mass hysteria that have roused the public for and against blocs of people or enterprises, beginning with the revolution of 1776, the Civil War and Reconstruction, the Red Scare from the 30s - 50s, the Silent Majority vs. the Hippies, the anti-nuclear movement of the 1970s-1980s which probably set energy independence back fifty years, and more. All of those different movements have one thing in common: hate was hatched. It was nurtured from dislike to vocal mass hysteria. Savage says that to slow or even break this insidious cycle, we must delve into the unspoken reality that there are always puppet masters behind these outcries, men and women who convince the gullible masses that indoctrination is truth. While exposing these forces in the past Savage will, more importantly, unmask the individuals in the present who are generating this mass hysteria...and why.

Heavens on Earth

Michael Shermer
Authors:
Michael Shermer

A scientific exploration into humanity's obsession with the afterlife and the quest for immortality from the bestselling author and sceptic Michael ShermerIn his most ambitious work yet, Shermer sets out to discover what drives humans' belief in life after death. For millennia, the awareness of our own mortality and failings has led to religions concocting comforting notions of an afterlife, of heaven and hell, utopias and dystopias, and of the perfectibility of human nature.Heavens on Earth explores the numerous manifestations of the afterlife - a place where souls might go after the death of the physical body. Religious leaders have toiled to make sense of this place that a surprisingly high percentage of people believe exists, but from which no one has ever returned to report what it is really like.This is one of the most profound questions of the human condition and has long driven philosophers and theologians to try to understand the meaning and purpose of life for mortal beings, and how we can transcend mortality. Shermer details recent scientific attempts to achieve immortality by radical life extentionists, extropians, transhumanists, cryonicists and mind-uploaders, along with utopians who have attempted to create heaven on earth. Heavens on Earth concludes with an uplifting paean to purpose and progress and what we can do in the here-and-now, whether or not there is a hereafter.

Authors:
Michael Savage

The "Godfather of Trumpmania," Michael Savage, examines the initial appointments, speeches, tweets and history of Donald Trump and offers his insights and analysis. The man many consider to be the determining factor in driving Trump over the finish line by motivating millions of undecideds and the "Deplorables," who would have otherwise sat out the election, provides a crucial first look at the early direction of the Trump presidency.Savage has waged a twenty-five year war on the radio to save America's borders, language and culture from a progressive onslaught that is already turning Europe into a socialist, multiculturalist nightmare, where violent gangs of radical Islamic refugees terrorize defenseless citizens on a daily basis.While most in the chattering classes around the world dismissed Trump's campaign, conservative radio icon Dr. Michael Savage championed Trump's platform and helped him galvanize the support of disaffected middle Americans left behind by the globalist central planners in their distant capitol.Savage's army of listeners on The Savage Nation was instrumental in electing Donald Trump to take the fight to Washington. But electoral victory was only the beginning. Trump now has an even bigger challenge in delivering on the promises he made to millions of American voters.He faces relentless opposition from special interests in both parties who stand to lose trillions if Trump's America First policies become the law of the land.Dr. Michael Savage has been on the front line of this fight for decades and knows what Trump and his administration are up against. He lays out a path to victory for the new, conservative American revolutionaries in Trump's War.

Hands Off My Gun

Dana Loesch
Authors:
Dana Loesch

In HANDS OFF MY GUN, Dana Loesch - co-founder of the Tea Party in St Louis, 2012 winner of Accuracy in Media's Grassroots Journalism Award and Nielsen-rated one of the top 16 most powerful mothers online - tells the hard truth and pulls no punches as she speaks out powerfully in defense of our right to bear arms and against those who would take it (and our guns) away.Dana Loesch has established herself as a fearless and fiery spokeswoman for conservative points of view on issues across the board, none more strongly or with more intelligence, fervor and personal passion than gun control. In HANDS OFF MY GUN, Loesch backs up her opinions with research that makes a brilliant case against those on the left who want not only to further reign in owning and buying guns, but to prepare for taking them away altogether.First, Loesch lays the groundwork by looking into the background of the Second Amendment itself. She digs deep into historical documents, showing exactly why the Founding Fathers insisted it be part of the Bill of Rights. Next she draws a frightening picture of what all-out gun confiscation (aka 'The Grab') would actually mean for law-abiding gun owning women, who would lose the only effective defense they have against rape and sexual assault. Finally, she exposes the despicable fear-mongering of the mainstream media and hypocritical liberals as they use tragic events to play on our sympathies every chance they get, chipping away at our resolve by portraying pro-gun citizens and organisations as out-of-touch, pro-violence and often racist. She debunks their propaganda and delivers practical tips for skewering every left-wing argument they offer. In HANDS OFF MY GUN, Dana Loesch delivers the essential how-to manual for every Second Amendment supporter, providing a fact-based understanding of why we were given our gun rights, what it would look like if we lost them, and how we can protect them for future generations.

The Crash of 2016: The Plot to Destroy America--and What We Can Do to Stop It

Thom Hartmann
Authors:
Thom Hartmann

In THE CRASH OF 2016, Thom Hartmann describes a country not on the road to collapse, but in the midst of an economic implosion that could make the Great Depression seem like child's play. Our once-enlightened American political and economic systems have been manipulated to ensure the success of only a fraction of the population at the expense of the rest of us, a "for the rich, by the rich" system that is turning our Democracy into an ancient feudal kingdom and leading to policies that only benefit the highest bidder. A backlash is now palpable-against the banksters, oligarchs, and economic royalists like Milton Friedman, Lewis F. Powell, Alan Greenspan, Ronald Reagan, Jude Wannitsky, Roger Ailes, the Koch brothers, and others who have plunged our nation into economic chaos and social instability. But like the previous crashes of 1770, 1856, and 1929, the Crash of 2016 will give us the chance to once again embrace the moral motive over the profit motive, and to rebuild an economic model that has always yielded great success. Thoroughly researched and passionately argued, in THE CRASH OF 2016 Hartmann assures us that if the right reforms are enacted we can avert disaster and make our nation whole again.

The Believing Brain

Michael Shermer
Authors:
Michael Shermer

Synthesizing thirty years of research, psychologist and science historian, Michael Shermer upends the traditional thinking about how humans form beliefs about the world. Simply put, beliefs come first and explanations for beliefs follow. The brain, Shermer argues, is a belief engine. Using sensory data that flow in through the senses, the brain naturally looks for and finds patterns - and then infuses those patterns with meaning, forming beliefs. Once beliefs are formed, our brains subconsciously seek out confirmatory evidence in support of those beliefs, which accelerates the process of reinforcing them, and round and round the process goes in a positive-feedback loop.In The Believing Brain, Shermer provides countless real-world examples of how this process operates, from politics, economics, and religion to conspiracy theories, the supernatural, and the paranormal. Ultimately, he demonstrates why science is the best tool ever devised to determine whether or not our belief matches reality.
