    From the cover I somehow didn't expect this book to be as substantial as it turned out to be It's full of fascinating clearly presented information I especially enjoyed the chapter on plant toxins presented in a gently humorous ton

    I was excited to read this book but found myself bored by many of the topics Johnson lingers on and had to force myself to finish it For example first fifth of the book was about naturalmidwife births versus hospital births I thought

    Award winning journalist Nathanael Johnson was raised by two radical hippie parents who insisted on homebirth and outlawed refined sugar in their house throughout his childhood As he grew up Johnson found himself skeptical of the superiority claims of his parents' organic lifestyle while retaining that lingering fondness and sense of comfort

    This book is entertaining and well researched If the cover appeals to you so will the entire book

    I really enjoyed the take this author has on natural vs technological issues He was raised by hippies and is drawn to natural approaches but also understands science and wants to take the best of that into account His agonizing and searching also coincided with his beginning a family and so issues of birth nutrition and immunizations were very timely for him I am overjoyed to see a book by an author that doesn't reject

    35 stars rounded up This books is made up of previously written essays that were put together and elaborated on to form a book Each chapter represents a new idea and is connected with the underlying theme of technological vs all natural Don't read this book looking for answers be prepared to think for yourself Johnson does a good job of prov

In this age of climate change killer germs and obesity it's easy to feel as if we've fallen out of synch with the global ecosystem This ecological anxiety has polarized a new generation of Americans many are drawn to natural solutions and organic lifestyles while others rally around high tech development and industrial efficiencies Johnson argues that both views when taken to extremes can be harmful even deadlyJ. From the cover I somehow didn t expect this book to be as substantial as it turned out to be It s full of fascinating clearly presented information I especially enjoyed the chapter on plant toxins presented in a gently humorous tone Striking the correct balance between shrilly smug skepticism peruse any atheism forum online for an example of the tone and wide eyed hippified tree hugging compassion is tricky and I believe Johnson has pulled it off flawlesslyIf you can hear a but coming it s true I am tired of finding so many typos in finished books I know the publishers are broke and it seems like they re trying to replace live editors with spell check but as any college student would tell you spell check is no substitute for actual human attention It s especially jarring and intrusive in a book which emphasizes the human touch

REVIEW All Natural

All Natural

Ohnson raised in the crunchy granola epicenter of Nevada City California lovingly and rigorously scrutinizes his family's all natural mindset a uest that brings him into the worlds of an outlaw midwife radical doctors renegade farmers and one hermit forester Along the way he uncovers paradoxes at the heart of our ecological condition Why even as medicine improves are we becoming less healthy Why are American wom. Award winning journalist Nathanael Johnson was raised by two radical hippie parents who insisted on homebirth and outlawed refined sugar in their house throughout his childhood As he grew up Johnson found himself skeptical of the superiority claims of his parents organic lifestyle while retaining that lingering fondness and sense of comfortwholesomeness associated with it It is with this disposition towards all natural products and practices yet strong desire for irrefutable scientific proof that Johnson delves into the opposing approaches to such topics as diet childbirth germs and healingJudging by its subtitle All Natural at first appears to be an attack on organic food herbal remedies wildlife conservation efforts and every other current counter culture movement but Johnson s research is actually very well balanced if not virtually unbiased He spends adeuate time not just on each topic but also on each viewpoint raw milk v pastuerization natural birth v Caesarean grass fed cattle v grain fed etcUsing historical examples and reasonable conclusions drawn from up to date and reputable studies Johnson presents the pros and cons of each subject as well as demystifying any lingering myths on either side eg studies fail to show that sugar makes kids hyper or that it weakens the immune system and in just the last decade the Caesarean rate had increased from 22 percent to 32 percent yet experts said that there had been no corresponding improvement in the health of mothers or babiesNot surprisingly then is Johnson s conclusion that too much of either extreme is bad and in some instances even harmful although he does appear to lean slightly towards his upbringing with the comment It s not so terrible when the all natural right brained reflex guides us toward phony alternative medical practitioners or overpriced groceries but I m concerned with the problems that arise when the technological left brained gaze fixes tenaciously on a perceived problem while ignoring any larger systematic problems that may exist His persistent middle of the road inconclusiveness can feel too safe or evasive at times as it rarely offers any workable suggestions an exception to this is his proposed real legislation for agriculture although even this is an unfortunately unrealistic expectation but the logic behind this ambiguity is both sound and welcome Besides Johnson readily admits that his intentions in trying to unravel the confusion surrounding technology and nature is not to convince but to wonder Although filled with facts and very suggestive test results the only enlightenment that Johnson offers is in exposing just how unenlightened we really are in matters of nutrition biology and the environment Both total reliance onunwavering trust in or stubborn dismissal of either argument is missing part of the picture Johnson deduces and should instead be weighed on an individual basis instead of a one size fits all philosophy This might seem like a cop out but it just might also be the most rational approach out there
