  • The Tree of Life & Origin of Species

    by Philip Bruce Heywood
    More a reference tool than a bedside read, this is nonetheless a very readable work. Heywood examines the existing explanations of the origin of the universe against a backdrop of the first chapters of the Bible— the creation accounts of Genesis— and skillfully shows the scientific facts underlying what many in scientific and educational fields have written off as mere fable. Heywood does this by introducing facts and posing questions for which he then proffers a variety of answers, allowing ... more

  • Fixing Food: An FDA Insider Unravels the Myths and the Solutions

    by Richard Williams
    FIXING FOOD tells the stories of what really happens inside the FDA. Through these stories, I explain why one out of every six Americans gets food poisoning every year (CDC).

It also discusses why two thirds of us are overweight or obese and why, by 2030, despite FDA’s nutrition labeling, one out of every two Americans is expected to be obese.[1] To solve these problems, ... more
