Heart disease was the biggest pandemic of the twentieth century and remains the number one killer in developed countries. Yet there is still no concensus about its course.

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

Tales out of school an inside look at universities ( Recording )
1 edition published in 1995 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
It was a nice idea: communities of thinkers sharing their knowledge and, in so doing, benefiting the entire nation. But at Canadian universities, the contemplative life is running scared. Chasing it are interest groups waving social agendas, politicians demanding "accountability" and business people insisting on job training. To critics, academic jargon is evasion, sabbaticals are theft, and tenure is a scandal. Small classes, well-stocked libraries and generous research grants are becoming only fond memories

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."
