Publishers Description
50 inspirational essays from the heart and soul of "Prevention" magazine
Finding Love, Hope, and Joy in Everyday Life
In times of uncertainty and unease, we all yearn for a touchstone of comfort and calm that reminds us of what is real. Ardie Rodale provides such reassurance to millions of "Prevention" readers in her monthly column, "Reflections." Collected here for the first time are 50 of Ardie's most beloved essays, chronicling her insights on the harmony of nature and the healing power of the human spirit. Ardie's simple wisdom and grace show us a world in which it is still possible to honor those treasured moments that bind us together, make us stronger, give us hope, and inspire us to thrive in the face of adversity.
We draw courage from Ardie's peaceful wisdom as we discover how she has transformed many tragic experiences-- bouts with cancer and other serious illnesses, the loss of her son to AIDS, the shock of her husband's premature death-- into a tender strength that floods her heart with gratitude and allows her to weather the worst of storms. Through it all, Ardie has remained in awe of the wonders of life, and her lessons about transforming pain into healing are an especially welcome comfort in today's uncertain world.

Get this BOOK Back in Print PLEASE!!!!  Apr 1, 2004
This is one of the best books I've read in a long time on the subject of environmental wellness. I recommend it to every person I know that has a child! It frustrates me that this book is hard to find. It's simple enough for the average consumer. It teaches alot-- Important stuff. When my friend told me his daughter has cancer, I urged him to read this book in order to protect her environment while she heals and make her future environment SAFE. PLEASE get this book back on this site with unlimited availability!
Highly recommended, very useful  Jan 2, 2003
I will have to admit that on my first glance at this book, written by two doctors and a public health expert, I felt overwhelmed by its checklists and inspection suggestions to use in our home. Did I really want to know if our home was toxic? Did I want to know if my son's school was a safe place for him to be? I wasn't sure at first, but as is typical for me and other moms I know, my parental guilt got the best of me and I sat down to read this amazingly interesting book.

The environmental checklist at the back of the book proved to be more than just another thing to do; it helped me to focus in on areas of our home where we are at risk of being exposed to toxins.

Did you know, for example, that magic markers that contain xylene can cause your child to experience headaches, dizziness, confusion, and balance and breathing problems? Scented markers can be dangerous in addition because they encourage children to taste them.

The book does contain some good news. For example, olive oil can be effective in treating head lice, therefore avoiding the potential dangers of the more caustic over-the-counter head lice treatments.

Forget about creating a germ free kitchen or bathroom - it can't be done. Using antibacterial, germ killing, sterilizing sprays will rarely result in a germ free environment, even if that were something one would wish to do. Using toxic cleaners simply replaces the germs with a synthetic chemical hazard. Overuse of such products can actually increase the potency of germs that can rise up and revolt against the products themselves. For disinfecting, simple "green" products work and are safe, or a homemade solution of ¼ cup of bleach to a gallon of water will suffice.

I was further surprised to learn that commercial peanut butter might be better for your child than the ground peanut version. This is largely because there are government regulations limiting the amount of aflatoxin, a naturally occurring toxin produced by mold that contaminates peanuts. A child who eats a product with high levels of aflatoxin may develop liver failure. Some fresh ground peanut butters tested at natural food stores were found to have levels higher than the government standards of this dangerous substance.

Raising Healthy Children in a Toxic World has now joined the other reference books that sit on my kitchen counter for a quick thumb through when needed. I recommend other parents add it to their bookshelves as well.
