Talking About Single Payer

Talking About Single Payer

By James F. Burdick

By controlling expenses that do not help patients, a single payer system will simplify our health care system, improve the quality of care, and provide savings that far exceed the cost of extending coverage to every American.

Johns Hopkins transplant surgeon Dr. James Burdick outlines a viable approach to improving health care delivery to cover every American. Quality will be improved while costs will be lowered, ending the misery and grievances plaguing U.S. health care today.

The essence of the plan is to empower a transparent, apolitical national public-private Doctors Board to independently oversee care using a new approach to monitor quality.  Joined with a convenient national electronic medical record system, this unique single payer system will free doctors to deal with each patient individually.  With these innovations, Dr. Burdick’s plan also limits market influences and politics in medical decisions so that each patient can receive care appropriate to their personal medical needs.

Thirty interviews with a broad range of authorities provide startling new insights about the adoption of a single payer structure for American health care. These expert opinions complement Dr. Burdick's own clinical and Federal experience as a leader in overseeing the country's organ transplantation program.

Through these unique initiatives, Dr. Burdick provides commonsense solutions to the political and social challenges currently anchoring American health care to costly and medically inferior practices.  Such progress, Dr. Burdick predicts, is more possible now than ever before. The time is right for single payer!

The Art of Fermentation

The Art of Fermentation

By Sandor Ellix Katz

Winner of the 2013 James Beard Foundation Book Award for Reference and Scholarship, and a New York Times bestseller, The Art of Fermentation is the most comprehensive guide to do-it-yourself home fermentation ever published. Sandor Katz presents the concepts and processes behind fermentation in ways that are simple enough to guide a reader through their first experience making sauerkraut or yogurt, and in-depth enough to provide greater understanding and insight for experienced practitioners.

While Katz expertly contextualizes fermentation in terms of biological and cultural evolution, health and nutrition, and even economics, this is primarily a compendium of practical information—how the processes work; parameters for safety; techniques for effective preservation; troubleshooting; and more.

With two-color illustrations and extended resources, this book provides essential wisdom for cooks, homesteaders, farmers, gleaners, foragers, and food lovers of any kind who want to develop a deeper understanding and appreciation for arguably the oldest form of food preservation, and part of the roots of culture itself.

Readers will find detailed information on fermenting vegetables; sugars into alcohol (meads, wines, and ciders); sour tonic beverages; milk; grains and starchy tubers; beers (and other grain-based alcoholic beverages); beans; seeds; nuts; fish; meat; and eggs, as well as growing mold cultures, using fermentation in agriculture, art, and energy production, and considerations for commercial enterprises. Sandor Katz has introduced what will undoubtedly remain a classic in food literature, and is the first—and only—of its kind.
