Let Thy Food Be Thy Medicine. Plants and Modern Medicine. 2012. illus. 197 p. gr8vo. Hardcover.

Are herbal medicines effective? Will the cure to cancer eventually come from a newly discovered plant which dwells in the Amazon basin? Will medicines ever become affordable and available to the neediest? How will there be enough food to keep up with an ever-increasing world population? Written with these issues in mind, the publication is a response to the current flood of conflicting information regarding the use of plants for both consumption and medicinal purposes. The author addresses the myths and popular beliefs surrounding the application of plants in human health, revealing both their truths and inaccuracies, and provides an overview of the technologies scientists are using to further their research. The book covers herbal medicines, functional and biofortified foods, plants and antibiotics, edible vaccines, and organic versus genetically modified foods, discussing each from a scientific standpoint.
