Product Description Food is our body's fuel, and when we are ill, what we eat becomes even more important.Choosing particular foods and avoiding others can help your body fight your symptoms, and Minna Rose's Cooking for Health series of cookbooks are designed to help you in your quest for better health. The Low-Oxalate Cookbook is a delicious introduction to a low-oxalate diet. With details of which foods to embrace and what to avoid, you are sure to find a new favourite meal within its pages.Oxalates are organic acids, found in most vegetables and fruits, which hinder the absorption of calcium. A low-oxalate diet can therefore help people who suffer from osteoporosis and kidney stones to manage their condition. Oxalates may also be a contributing factor in the pain of fibromyalgia, and again a low-oxalate diet may help. Having suffered from fibromyalgia for many years, Minna Rose has created this 'recipe book for pain', refusing to compromise on flavour and creating delicious meals using only foods low in oxalates. Each recipe comes with detailed instructions and mouth-watering photography, as well as ideas of how to use any leftovers - many of which are delicious recipes in their own right. Fresh and nutritious food is very important for a healthy life, just as tasty food, shared in good company, is essential for a happy and enjoyable life. Minna Rose's cookbooks combine the two in over twenty recipes, all of which are easy to follow and recreate. Minna Rose's cookbooks are popular in both the UK and US, as well as around the world, and as a US pint is a very different measurement to a pint in the UK (1 UK pint = 1.2 US pints), the measurements are given in metric to avoid any confusion and ensure that everyone can follow her recipes and expect the same tasty results.

#492 Flint Water Crisis This week we dig into the Flint water crisis: what happened, how it got so bad, what turned the tide, what's still left to do, and the mix of science, politics, and activism that are still needed to finish pulling Flint out of the crisis. We spend the hour with Dr Mona Hanna-Attisha, a physician, scientist, activist, the founder and director of the Pediatric Public Health Initiative, and author of the book "What the Eyes Don't See: A Story of Crisis, Resistance, and Hope in an American City".
