The global food production system is responsible for a quarter of the world's total greenhouse gas emissions caused by humans. The food we waste accounts for 8 to 10% of those emissions, and we could feed an extra 2.4 billion people with everything that gets thrown away.

This book is a guide to eating healthily for yourself as well as for the planet; it features over 60 recipes created by PJ Taste, a catering company who have always put sustainability at the heart of their business, which are designed to offer information and inspiration for finding a balance that benefits your body and its environment.

While government and nutritional agencies still spout the failed mantra of calorie reduction, doctors treating diabetes and obesity are experiencing extraordinary results among patients cutting out carbs; a diet which has the essential benefit of allowing you to lose weight without ever feeling hungry. With forensic journalistic rigour and in compelling prose, world authority Gary Taubes analyses the bad science behind our nutritional dogma. He shows that weight gain is driven by genetic, hormonal factors - and not overeating or 'gluttony' as is commonly the underlying suggestion - citing compelling evidence that people with the propensity to fatten easily can be helped best by a low carbohydrate high fat diet. This groundbreaking read offers hope to anyone wishing to prevent or reverse diabetes or obesity - as well as anyone wanting to eat more healthily - and will fundamentally change our habits around food forever.

Theo Krause gains speed as he drops into a ravine on a remote Colorado mountain biking trail. Rounding a bend, his bike hits an awkward bump, hidden by the shadows, that catapults him head first into an aspen tree, splintering his neck. Staring at the sky, paralyzed, he thinks, "This is where I will die." A mountain rescue team races in while a helicopter crew positions for a dangerous airlift. Hours later and five hundred miles away, Theo's mother takes a phone call. The news is devastating. Her son will never walk again. Finding Theo is a father's raw account of his son's courageous battle for life. It is also a deeper story of discovery about the people whose lives became interwoven with Theo's: the son of an Iranian immigrant who found him beside the trail, medical professionals-one, the sister of a Columbine High School massacre victim-and the cast of friends who guarded his soul. Long after the last page turns, Finding Theo provokes questions about the meaning of "miracle" and the way the world was made to work.
Lycopene is a potent antioxidant carotenoid found in fruits and vegetables; particularly high amounts exist in red tomatoes. It is not an essential nutrient for humans, but can be a potential therapeutic agent for preventing several human diseases. Since the publication of the previous book on lycopene, extensive advances have been made with respect to the role of lycopene and tomatoes in human health. Whereas the initial focus of research was on cancer, Lycopene and Tomatoes in Human Nutrition and Health represents the next major step in documenting advances in understanding the chemistry, bioavailability, metabolism; mechanisms of action of lycopene; and its role in preventing human diseases other than cancer as discussed in the various chapters of the book. The book includes chapters that discuss genetic polymorphisms; and lycopene's relationship to cardiovascular diseases, cardiometabolic diseases, bone health, and other health disorders including male infertility, skin diseases, respiratory disorders and neurodegenerative diseases. The book includes information addressing regulatory aspects of natural health products and, in particular lycopene, presenting industrial insights. The contents of the book are selected carefully to provide the readers with the most current information available on lycopene and tomato bioactives.
