Drawing on the newest health research as well as conversations with chemical and organic farmers, Maria Rodale outlines irrefutably the unacceptably high cost of chemical farming on our health and our environment. She traces the rise of chemical farming - and companies that profit from it - and brings to how government policies impede organic farming. She further explains that modern organic farming would not only help reverse climate change but would also improve the quality of the food we eat, reduce disease from asthma to cancer, and ensure a better quality of life in farming communities nationwide.

For every parent wondering how best to safeguard the health of her children; for every shopper who questions whether it is worth it to pay more for organic; for anyone concerned about our land, air, and water, Maria Rodale offers straightforward answers and a definite course of action: Go organic now.
