The Reading List

When I began writing this blog I thought it seemed a bit counterproductive to encourage friends to stock up on tons of environmental health books, but then I remembered that we have the choice to borrow these books from the library, download them onto our e-readers, or even to buy used copies! So for those of you who are interested in learning more about the issues (or if you're just plain dissatisfied with how few posts I manage to sneak in each month...), I've compiled a short, basic, and diverse reading list. Any of these books or guides would also work well as holiday gifts for the burgeoning health nuts, environmentalists, green investors, or naturalchemysts in your life. (For gifts, I suggest pairing any of the books with the Planet Earth DVD set...) And please, if your favorite isn't on here, share it with us!
