Stuffed (Part 2 of 2)( Visual )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For most of the 20th century, North American food consumption was relatively stable, but the 1980s marked the beginning of a dramatic shift. We're eating, on average, 200 calories per day more than we did just thirty years ago. We're eating larger portions, and we're eating more often. What happened to bring about this sudden change? In this two-part series Jill Eisen explores the politics, economics and science of overeating. When it comes to food America is the land of plenty. Food is everywhere and the portions are humungous. It's no surprise that the US is ground zero for what's been called "the obesity epidemic." Canadians aren't far behind. It's no secret. We North American's have gotten fatter. But what's surprising is the just how fast it happened. For most of the 20th century, our average weight was fairly stable. Then suddenly, in 1980, something changed. By 2010, the average adult had gained a staggering 20 pounds, and obesity rates had skyrocketed. The usual suspects are eating too much and exercising too little. But why 1980? What happened to cause such a dramatic shift in the way we eat?

Sick people or sick societies?( Recording )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"We are healthier than ever before, and we live longer, but improvements in health are not distributed evenly. The rich outlive the middle classes, who outlive the poor. Swedes and Japanese live longer than Canadians, and Canadians, longer than Americans. Freelance journalist Jill Eisen discovers that the reasons have little to do with our health care systems"--Vive Le Canada website

2 editions published between 2005 and 2007 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Organic food has jumped from the margins to the mainstream and is now the fastest growing food category on supermarket shelves. What started as a social movement has become an industry with companies like General Mills, ConAgra and Kraft as major players. For some, this represents a victory for organics. Others worry that success will compromise the ideals of the movement. Jill Eisen looks at the past, present and future of organics

Christopher Alexander is one of the most innovative architects alive. He's also a severe critic of contemporary architecture.

Brains of babes( Recording )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The centuries-old Jesuit saying, "give me a child until he's 7 and I will show you the man", may be true in more ways than the Jesuits could have imagined. New research into brain development, human biology and behaviour is showing how early experience can affect our health and well-being for the rest of our lives. As Jill Eisen reports, even so-called "life-style' illnesses, like heart disease and diabetes, may have their roots in early childhood
The new green pharmacy by Jill Eisen( Recording )

2 editions published between 2002 and 2005 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Herbal remedies have been used for centuries to treat conditions of the mind and the body. With the rise of modern medicine, herbal treatments as folk medicine had largely disappeared. But today people are taking charge of their own health. Herbal remedies have moved from the back shelves of health food stores to become big business. Critics see this as a resurgence of the snake-oil salesman; others as a much needed alternative to prescription drugs."--Website
Have your meat and eat it too( Recording )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Meat eating has gotten a bad rap in recent years. It's blamed for everything from animal cruelty to global warming to swine flu and cancer. But Jill Eisen argues it's not meat that's the problem - it's the way we raise it. Most of our meat comes from mega-farms housing thousands of animals. Happily, there are alternatives that are humane, healthy and kind to the environment."
