Closing the Food Gap: Resetting the Table in the Land of Plenty

Interview with Mark Winne, author of Closing the Food Gap:  Resetting the Table in the Land of Plenty.  

Closing the Food Gap exposes America's dangerous dietary split: from patrons of food pantries, bodegas, and convenience stores to the more comfortable classes who increasingly seek out organic and local products. Calling largely on his own experience in food activism, and mixing in surprisingly witty observations, Mark Winne ultimately envisions realistic partnerships in which family farms and impoverished communities come together to get healthy, locally produced food onto everyone's table.


"Closing the Food Gap reveals the chasm between the two foodsystems of America-the one for the poor and the one for everyone else. Mark Winne offers compelling solutions for making local, organic, and highly nutritious food available to everyone. It's heartening to find a book that successfully blends a passion for sustainable living with compassion for the poor."
-Dr. Jane Goodall, DBE, founder of thhe Jane Goodall Institute and UN Messenger of Peace

 Dr. David Naimon talks with Dr. D. Lindsey Berkson, the author of Healthy Digestion the Natural Way: Preventing and Healing Heartburn, Constipation, Gas, Diarrhea, Inflammatory Bowel and Gallbladder Diseases.

A complete guide to healing your digestive problems, once and for all—safely, inexpensively, naturally.  Good digestion is fundamental to good health, and even such common problems as chronic heartburn and gas can have harmful effects on virtually every cell in your body. Quick fixes such as over-the-counter and prescription medications don’t address the real causes of the problems: they only mask symptoms. Nature, on the other hand, offers a variety of gentle, readily available remedies that not only treat underlying digestive problems but also help to promote overall well-being. Learn about natural solutions and how to put them to work for you in Healthy Digestion the Natural Way. Dr. D. Lindsey Berkson clearly and simply explains the normal digestive processes and what can happen to interfere with them.
