Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

"Is our nation's 'bread basket' becoming a dead basket?" The authors of this book contend that we are breaking down our soil ecosystem and that modern-day agriculture is out of sync with nature. Artificial soil produces artificial food. Today's mineral-deficient soil may be "one of the greatest original sources of disease." This book is divided into two uneven parts, with each author--Jensen is a nutritionist and Anderson an ecologist--responsible for a part. The book lacks footnotes, which would lend it more legitimacy, and it could be better focused on its main maessage of the interconnectedness of human and earth. But it asks questions, makes accusations, and suggests solutions that should be heard. Recommended for public health or nutrition collections in public libraries.

Format: Paperback
Empty Harvest clearly explains the link between the lack of minerals in our crop soils and the modern day diseases associated with mineral deficiencies (diabetes, heart disease, cancer, etc.). The author shows many excellent examples of how mankind is slowly destroying it's future by robbing the Earth of the very things that give us and support life itself.
Empty Harvest is a "wake-up call" for us to start changing our destructive ways, or poor physical and mental health and disease will dominate our lives into the 21st Century and beyond!
By following many of the guidelines in Empty Harvest (especially eating foods grown in nutrient rich soils & taking plant derived major & trace mineral supplements from organic sources), we can maintain or regain optimum health.
Anyone who thinks they are getting all the essential vitamins and minerals they need from the produce section at their local supermarket needs to read Empty Harvest TODAY!

Format: Paperback
This book explains many aspects of nutrition and what we have done wrong over the years with our diets. I have never seen a book with more quality information and that information is exactly what we need to look at for the causes of many of the diseases we see today. I am a Doctor who deals a lot with nutrition and it is the best book I have ever read on the subject.

I just finished reading this book and have started to re-read it. I have been so touched by this book; it has tranformed my attitude and thoughts about my health, the earth and environment. I only hope that everyone who reads my review will read this book or, at least, consider an organic diet in support of preventative health and farmer's whose growing methods are replinishing the valuable topsoil and doing away with highly toxic chemicals. It is hard to believe what "modern society" has done to our planet and health in such a short amount of time. I hope that, one person at a time, we can undo the damage that has been done. A sincere Thank You to the late Bernard Jenson for such thorough and insightful research.

10 of 11 people found the following review helpful By CrazyHorseLady on January 5, 2007
Format: Paperback
This book has gotten me back into doing what I used to do: buying organic. It got expensive, the organic food store is an hour away... and I got lazy. This book woke me up again. It has also raised a desire in me to start my own garden. The information is mostly good, though maybe a little scattered.

There is a little bit too much eco-hysteria for my taste, and I don't worship "Mother Earth" either, but those views don't affect the useful information in the book. Some of the info might be outdated by now, so I'd recommend doing some more research before implementing some things (e.g., detoxification).

7 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Gary Greenfield on January 5, 2005
Format: Paperback
The premise of the book's subtitle - Understanding the Link Between Our Food, Our Immunity and Our Planet - got my attention. And, for the most part, the authors succeed in making their central point. They connect the dots between the quality of the soil, the harvest, our immune system, and our health. This level of holistic thinking is an important foundational piece of any conversation about the systems that are involved in creating personal and planetary health.

The two authors contribute separate sections of the book. Dr. Bernard Jenson is often eloquent and impassioned, and his photographs alone are a powerful testimonial to his ideas. Mark Anderson writes knowledgably about nutrition and provides interesting historical background on agricultural science and nutrition research - and the work of special interest groups to suppress unfavorable findings and individuals, and corporations who promote bogus notions. [Did you know that smoking cigarettes was once advertised as an aid to digestion? Yikes!]

On the whole, this book mostly lives up to its promise, but it does so somewhat unevenly. Most scientific material is explained and substantiated in some detail - vitamin C, candida albicans, calcium, and the symbiotic relationship between plants and soil. But other subjects receive such superficial treatment that they would have been better off omitted - the chapter on cleansing and detoxification is too general to be of real use to anybody considering implementing such a program.

The content and message of the book would have been better served with more skillful editing because the material often comes across as somewhat haphazardly organized, making it harder to reconnect the parts to the whole.
