Product Description

From Library Journal

"Is our nation's 'bread basket' becoming a dead basket?" The authors of this book contend that we are breaking down our soil ecosystem and that modern-day agriculture is out of sync with nature. Artificial soil produces artificial food. Today's mineral-deficient soil may be "one of the greatest original sources of disease." This book is divided into two uneven parts, with each author--Jensen is a nutritionist and Anderson an ecologist--responsible for a part. The book lacks footnotes, which would lend it more legitimacy, and it could be better focused on its main maessage of the interconnectedness of human and earth. But it asks questions, makes accusations, and suggests solutions that should be heard. Recommended for public health or nutrition collections in public libraries.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Book EVERYONE Should Read ! Jan. 28 2000
Empty Harvest clearly explains the link between the lack of minerals in our crop soils and the modern day diseases associated with mineral deficiencies (diabetes, heart disease, cancer, etc.). The author shows many excellent examples of how mankind is slowly destroying it's future by robbing the Earth of the very things that give us and support life itself.
Empty Harvest is a "wake-up call" for us to start changing our destructive ways, or poor physical and mental health and disease will dominate our lives into the 21st Century and beyond!
By following many of the guidelines in Empty Harvest (especially eating foods grown in nutrient rich soils & taking plant derived major & trace mineral supplements from organic sources), we can maintain or regain optimum health.
Anyone who thinks they are getting all the essential vitamins and minerals they need from the produce section at their local supermarket needs to read Empty Harvest TODAY!

5.0 out of 5 stars Easy to read, and to comprehend Dec 12 2000
This book is very profound. While browsing through the local bookstore, the title of the book jumped out at me and basically told me, "OK.. you will buy me".
I was psyched to read this book simply because of the title, even though when I skimmed through it in the store it looked great. This book is one of the best books I have read when it comes to every aspect of nutrition and health, all rolled into one. I was very impressed.
I agree with the authors views 100% on how man is killing man, and his advice on how to counteract the craziness is exceptional. I would recommend this book to anyone who stumbles upon this review.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another wake-up call May 9 2010
Though I do not subscribe to Jensen's low-fat recommendations in other publications (we evolved on saturated fat - I hardly think it suddenly became toxic, though the production of it has...) his commentary on the loss of nutrient density is thoughtful and profound - and certainly changes the chemistry of saturated fat - especially evident in the number of chronic illnesses and rise of infertility in North America. This ties in nicely with the work of Dr Weston A Price, Dr Henry Bieler, Gary Taubes, many others, and all the sustainable agriculture advocates we have in our midst. This awareness is critical if our species is to survive.

This book explains many aspects of nutrition and what we have done wrong over the years with our diets. I have never seen a book with more quality information and that information is exactly what we need to look at for the causes of many of the diseases we see today. I am a Doctor who deals a lot with nutrition and it is the best book I have ever read on the subject.
