Closing the Food Gap: Resetting the Table in the Land of Plenty

Interview with Mark Winne, author of Closing the Food Gap:  Resetting the Table in the Land of Plenty.  

Closing the Food Gap exposes America's dangerous dietary split: from patrons of food pantries, bodegas, and convenience stores to the more comfortable classes who increasingly seek out organic and local products. Calling largely on his own experience in food activism, and mixing in surprisingly witty observations, Mark Winne ultimately envisions realistic partnerships in which family farms and impoverished communities come together to get healthy, locally produced food onto everyone's table.


"Closing the Food Gap reveals the chasm between the two foodsystems of America-the one for the poor and the one for everyone else. Mark Winne offers compelling solutions for making local, organic, and highly nutritious food available to everyone. It's heartening to find a book that successfully blends a passion for sustainable living with compassion for the poor."
-Dr. Jane Goodall, DBE, founder of thhe Jane Goodall Institute and UN Messenger of Peace

On today's show, Dr David Naimon presents an interview with Dr. Michael Roizen, author of You: Being Beautiful

 While the world seems to revolve around the superficial elements of beauty, beauty is actually precisely perceived, purposeful, and rooted in hard science. External beauty is our brain’s barometer for measuring health. And research indicates that external beauty influences personality and behavior.

Yet beauty is much more than how we look.   It’s about how we feel and how we define our lives. In You: Being Beautiful Drs. Roizen and Oz provide detailed, innovative, and visual explanations about how beauty and the body work, and then give easy and actionable pieces of advice to help us nudge our beauty (inner and outer) to its maximum potential.

Comfortably Numb: How Psychiatry is Medicating a Nation

Sun, 11/23/2008

 Dr. David Naimon hosts an Interview with Charles Barber about his book "Comfortably Numb: How Psychiatry is Medicating a Nation."  Barber explores the ways pharmaceutical companies exert pressure on Americans to medicate themselves, how America has come to account for 66% of the global consumption of antidepressants,  and how without an industry to promote them, non-pharmaceutical approaches that have the potential to help millions, are tragically overlooked.

Large drug companies use various means to create an artificial need for their expensive (and highly profitable) products, then rush in to fill the orders.  Drug marketers intentionally blur the distinction between everyday problems and what used to be considered serious mental illness in such a way that people under the daily stress of modern life can be easily persuaded that a quick fix for stress lies in a pill bottle.  Direct-to-Consumer advertising plays a large role, as well as the time and expense related to non-drug therapeutic options, in convincing consumers to request medication in cases that just 10 years ago would have considered drugs to be inappropriate treatments.

 

Charles Barber was educated at Harvard and Columbia and worked for ten years in New York City shelters for the homeless mentally ill.  His book COMFORTABLY NUMB: How Psychiatry is Medicating a Nation, was released in 2008 to national media attention, including appearances on The Early Show and Fresh Air. His work has appeared in the The Washington Post, The New York Times, The Nation and Scientific American Mind. He has taught nonfiction writing at Wesleyan University. He is currently a senior executive at The Connection, an innovative social services agency, and a lecturer in psychiatry at the Yale University School of Medicine. He lives in Connecticut with his family.
