Ozone-friendly, recyclable, zero-waste, elimination of toxic chemicals - such environmental ideals are believed to offer solutions to the environmental crisis. Where do these ideals come from? Is the environmental debate communicating the right problems? Eco-Facts and Eco-Fiction examines serious errors in perceptions about human and environmental health. Drawing on a wealth of everyday examples of local and global concerns, the author explains basic concepts and observations relating to the environment. Removing fear of science and technology and eliminating wrong perceptions lead to a more informed understanding of the environment as a science, a philosophy, and a lifestyle. By revealing the flaws in today's environmental vocabulary, this book stresses the urgent need for a common language in the environmental debate. Such a common language encourages the effective communication between environmental science and environmental decision-making that is essential for finding solutions to environmental problems.

Why Nobody Believes The Numbers

Why Nobody Believes the Numbers introduces a unique viewpoint to population health outcomes measurement: Results/ROIs should be presented as they are, not as we wish they would be. This viewpoint contrasts sharply with vendor/promoter/consultant claims along two very important dimensions: (1) Why Nobody Believes presents outcomes/ROIs achievable right here on this very planet… (2) …calculated using actual data rather than controlled substances. Indeed, nowhere in healthcare is it possible to find such sharply contrasting worldviews, methodologies, and grips on reality. Why Nobody Believes the Numbers includes 12 case studies of vendors, carriers, and consultants who were apparently playing hooky the day their teacher covered fifth-grade math, as told by an author whose argument style can be so persuasive that he was once able to convince a resort to sell him a timeshare. The book's lesson: no need to believe what your vendor tells you -- instead you can estimate your own savings using “ingredients you already have in your kitchen.” Don't be intimidated just because you lack a PhD in biostatistics, or even a Masters, Bachelor's, high-school equivalency diploma or up-to-date inspection sticker. Why Nobody Believes the Numbers explains how to determine if the ROIs are real...and why they usually aren't. You'll learn how to: Figure out whether you are "moving the needle" or just crediting a program with changes that would have happened anyway Judge whether the ROIs your vendors report are plausible or even arithmetically possible Synthesize all these insights into RFPs and contracts that truly hold vendors accountable for results

Turmeric is a traditional herbal remedy that has been used for centuries and in recent years has been hailed as a “miracle cure” for a range of illnesses from arthritis to auto-immune disease. Penelope Ody, one of Britain’s leading herbalists, draws on the extensive scientific studies that have appeared on curcuminoids (one of the many chemical constituents of turmeric) in one of the most authoritative book on turmeric currently available. In Turmeric Penelope Ody provides a history of turmeric and its therapeutic role. From its cultivation to its traditional use in Chinese and Ayurvedic medicine to its centrality to the Asian diet (including some recipes, since many will be familiar with turmeric as a culinary spice). Turmeric has been used medicinally in South Asia for more than 4,000 years; today its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties are well established and may be helpful for a host of illnesses, from arthritis and diabetes to Alzheimer’s and heart disease. Penelope Ody investigates this ancient remedy’s suitability for twenty- first century ailments separating the hysteria about its benefits from a realistic evaluation into how it can help to improve any reader’s health.
