Many edible plants considered exotic in the Western world are actually quite mainstream in other cultures. While some of these plants are only encountered in ethnic food markets or during travels to foreign lands, many are now finding their way onto supermarket shelves. Top 100 Exotic Food Plants provides comprehensive coverage of tropical and semitropical food plants, reviewing scientific and technological information as well as their culinary uses. Wide-ranging in scope, this volume’s coverage includes plants that produce fruits, vegetables, spices, culinary herbs, nuts, and extracts. A user-friendly format enables readers to easily locate information on botanical and agricultural aspects, economic and social importance, food uses, storage, preparation, and potential toxicity. The book also contains an introductory chapter that reviews important historical, economic, geopolitical, health, environmental, and ethical considerations associated with exotic food plants. Thoroughly referenced with more than 2000 literature citations, this book is enhanced by more than 200 drawings, many chosen from historical art of extraordinary quality. This timely volume also highlights previously obscure edible plants that have recently become prominent as a result of sensationalistic media reports stemming from their inherently entertaining or socially controversial natures. Some of these plants include the acai berry, kava, hemp, and opium poppy. A scholarly yet accessible presentation, the book is filled with numerous memorable, fascinating, and humorous facts, making it an entertaining and stimulating read that will appeal to a broad audience.

Many North American plants have characteristics that are especially promising for creating varieties needed to expand food production, and there are excellent prospects of generating new economically competitive crops from these natives. The inadequacy of current crops to meet the food demands of the world’s huge, growing population makes the potential of indigenous North American food plants even more significant. These plants can also generate crops that are more compatible with the ecology of the world, and many also have inherent health benefits. Presenting detailed scholarship, a thoroughly accessible style, and numerous entertaining anecdotes, North American Cornucopia: Top 100 Indigenous Food Plants is a full-color book dedicated to the most important 100 native food plants of North America north of Mexico that have achieved commercial success or have substantial market potential. The introductory chapter reviews the historical development of North American indigenous crops and factors bearing on their future economic success. The rest of the book consists of 100 chapters, each dedicated to a particular crop. The book employs a user-friendly chapter format that presents the material in sections offering in-depth coverage of each plant. The first section of each chapter provides information on the scientific and English names of the plants, followed by a section on the geography and ecology of the wild forms, accompanied by a map showing the North American distribution. A section entitled "Plant Portrait" comprises a basic description of the plant, its history, and its economic and social importance. This is followed by "Culinary Portrait," concerned with food uses and culinary vocabulary. The chapters then provide an analysis of the economic future of each crop, discuss notable and interesting scientific or technological observations and accomplishments, and present extensive references.

Die meisten aller frühzeitigen Todesfälle lassen sich verhindern - und zwar, so überraschend es klingen mag, durch einfache Änderungen der eigenen Lebens- und Ernährungsweise. Dr. Michael Greger, international renommierter Arzt, Ernährungswissenschaftler und Gründer des Online-Informationsportals Nutritionfacts.org, lüftet in seinem weltweit aussergewöhnlich erfolgreichen Beststeller das am besten gehütete Geheimnis der Medizin: Wenn die Grundbedingungen stimmen, kann sich der menschliche Körper selbst heilen. In How Not To Die analysiert Greger die häufigsten 15 Todesursachen der westlichen Welt, zu denen z. B. Herzerkrankungen, Krebs, Diabetes, Bluthochdruck und Parkinson zählen, und erläutert auf Basis der neuesten wissenschaftlichen Forschungsergebnisse, wie diese verhindert, in ihrer Entstehung aufgehalten oder sogar rückgängig gemacht werden können. Darüber hinaus erklärt er auf verständliche und enorm fesselnde, aber stets wissenschaftlich fundierte Weise, welche Lebensmittel besonders wertvoll und gesund für die verschiedenen Organe und Funktionen des menschlichen Körpers sind, und wie diese am besten kombiniert und verzehrt werden können. Sein "Tägliches Dutzend" fasst in einer so übersichtlichen wie praktischen Checkliste alle die Lebensmittel zusammen, die eine optimale Gesundheit unterstützen. Dieses Buch ist ein Muss für alle, die ihre gesundheitliche Zukunft selbstbestimmt und gut informiert in die eigenen Hände nehmen möchten. "Mit Abstand das beste Buch, dass ich je über Ernährung und Diäten gelesen habe." Dan Buettner, Bestseller-Autor der "The Blue Zones"
