Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Put good food on your table, put good products in your home, plant a tree, drive a cool car, stop being toxic—these are five of the 10 simplistic but generally sensible bromides espoused by health magazine publisher Steinman. He's earnest, sometimes even bombastic, about how an army of "green patriots" can individually and incrementally confront global warming by embracing a "carbon-neutral" lifestyle. The "good food" chapter harrowingly recounts a visit to California's Central Valley—the most productive agricultural land in the United States but also the site of pesticides and poisoned water that have sickened generations of farm workers. However, his solution—to buy locally, eat organically and patronize food producers who emphasize organic products—is still out of reach for most Americans. A chapter on the importance of trees in combating global warming starts with the big picture of Costa Rica's remarkable commitment to reforestation before narrowing its focus to a list of manufacturers providing recycled papers. The ethic of every-little-thing-helps infuses the book—the author even counsels such micro-acts as unplugging unused appliances that draw "standby" power. A lengthy resource guide provides tips on everything from organic food deliveries and eco-friendly furniture to recycled toothbrushes. (Jan.)

From Booklist

Steinman, founder of Freedom Press and publisher of Healthy Living magazine, draws the connection between personal health and a healthy environment, argues that global warming is a greater threat to national security than terrorism, and avers that a "sound environmental policy" will enhance our standing in the world and strengthen our economy. He rants a bit in the opening pages but soon settles down to solid journalism and practical advice for lowering our society's dependence on fossil fuels, suggesting we each become a "green patriot" living as "carbon-neutral" and nontoxic a life as possible. Inquisitive, outspoken, and down-to-earth, Steinman tells harrowing tales about families who have suffered severe illness caused by exposure to pesticides and other environmental chemicals, then switches gears to profile green entrepreneurs and organic farmers and recommend a slew of Earth-friendly products. Although many reports on the state of the biosphere leave readers feeling helpless, Steinman motivates and empowers. Donna Seaman

More About the Author

David Steinman is the acclaimed environmentalist, health consumer advocate and author who founded the Green Patriotism movement. His major books include Diet for a Poisoned Planet (1990), The Safe Shopper's Bible (1995), Living Healthy in a Toxic World (1996), and Safe Trip to Eden: Ten Steps to Save the Planet Earth from the Global Warming Meltdown (2007), the book that introduces the concept of Green Patriotism.

In 1986, Steinman testified before Congress as an expert witness on the levels of chemical contaminants in the blood of fishermen and women eating locally caught fish from the Santa Monica Bay. His landmark human blood study, published in the Journal of Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry, led to the historic local movement to clean up the Santa Monica Bay. From 1989 to 1991, Steinman represented the public interest as a member on the safe seafood committee of the National Academy of Sciences' Institute of Medicine where he advised Congress on safe seafood legislation and coauthored Seafood Safety (National Academy Press, 1991).

Since 1996, Steinman has been an advisory board member for The Green Guide Institute, a national non-profit, organization for consumer research and information run by Wendy Gordon Rockefeller. In 1997, Steinman founded Freedom Press, a publishing house for environmental and health books and magazines, and he is editor-in-chief of the popular national magazine The Doctors' Prescription for Healthy Living.

In 2000, Steinman served as Chairman of Citizens for Health, a national nonprofit consumer advocacy group known as the voice of the natural health consumer.

Since Diet was published in 1990, Steinman has been a popular consumer health advocate in the media on TV, radio and in the press. He has won awards for his reporting from the California Newspaper Publishers Association, the Sierra Club, and the Society of Professional Journalists ('Best of the West: Environment and Natural Resources Reporting').

David Steinman is married with three children and lives in California.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The book was what I was looking for in terms of what I could do as an individual to simplify my life and lighten the load that is facing our planet today. It has joined a whole shelf full of books that range from how to Simplify all the way to raising back yard livestock. Education and information is the key to change and I feel that I have taken the first step in changing my life for the better.
