1. Our Toxic Legacy How Lead, Mercury, Arsenic, And Cadmium Harm Our Health (Large Print 16pt) - Beatrice Trum Hunter

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: £24.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

Lead, mercury, arsenic, and cadmium are major toxic metals. All are environmental pollutants that can inflict harm on humans and other living creatures as well as adversely affect our air, water, soil, and food supply. Two of them-lead and mercury-are neurotoxins. They can poison not only us but also our progeny developing in the womb. The other two-arsenic and cadmium-have some carcinogenic forms. All four metals can break down the body's basic functions.

Metal toxicity is more prevalent than commonly recognized. If we regularly eat certain fish or foods and beverages sweetened with high-fructose corn syrup, have amalgam dental fillings, drink contaminated tap water, take over-the-counter drugs, or use lipstick or hair dye, chances are that our bodies have already accumulated significant amounts of toxic metals. These poisonous substances are present in hundreds of other everyday consumer products. And if we work in certain industries or in agriculture, chronic exposure is inevitable.

Our Toxic Legacy describes the unique characteristics of each of these four major toxic metals and identifies the likely sources of our exposures. It offers in-depth, evidence- based information on subtle as well as serious health problems each metal induces, methods to test for its presence, and therapies to rid it from our bodies. Equally important, the book demonstrates the failures of the federal government to enforce even weak safety standards-themselves formulated to accommodate economic interests rather than for protection of public health-and offers new and important information on what we can do to help limit these toxic metals in our environment. Our Toxic Legacy shows that, while much remains to be done, we can take measures now to protect.

Herman Jackson never thought his past would catch up with him, least of all via a murdered Vietnam veteran named Charlie Victor. Jackson used to run a bookie operation in Detroit, but his bail bond business in St. Paul is much safer. And if Charlie Victor wasn't his best client, he was at least a steady one, paying his bonding fee out of a secret stash he called his frag box. Then Charlie is beaten to death on a public street in broad daylight. Strangely, he leaves behind a will naming Jackson as his sole heir. Jackson wants justice for Charlie, who had become something of a friend. But with plenty of money problems of his own, he also wants the box of cash. Unfortunately, Charlie's killers want it, too, and the race is on. Jackson will traverse the dark alleys of St. Paul's Railroad Island, the snowbound Minnesota Iron Range, and finally an abandoned tunnel under St. Paul. But every step reveals another layer of protection and another set of lies Jackson has told, including the ones he told himself....

9. Politics with Purpose Occasional Observations on Public and Private Life (Large Print 16pt) - Lindsay Tanner

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: £24.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

'We cannot blame particular individuals for modern Labor's malaise, because it is part of a systemic global phenomenon. We are all under the sway of politics without purpose. And politics without purpose is pointless.' Nothing could better sum up Lindsay Tanner's forthright attitude to politics and the public interest than these resounding sentences from the concluding section of Politics with Purpose. In a parliamentary career spanning 18 years, culminating in his position as the minister for finance and deregulation in the Rudd - Gillard governments, Lindsay Tanner always talked straight, and was always worth reading or listening to. Now we can see why. In this edited selection of his press articles, speeches, and occasional essays from 1990 to 2012, Tanner discusses a range of major subjects: Labor's problems and prospects; globalisation and its discontents; the family ties that bind; facing up to important values; the need for compassion; and lessons from his own life. Some pieces are short and lighthearted; others are longer and deeply serious. But whether the subject matter is economic, political, or personal, his range of interests and insights is remarkable. Lindsay Tanner's thoughtfulness and humanity are evident on every page, demonstrating once again what the nation lost when he departed from national politics.

11. Final Appeal Anatomy of a Frame (Large Print 16pt) - Colin Thatcher

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: £24.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

On May 7, 1984, Colin Thatcher was convicted of killing his ex - wife JoAnn Wilson the previous year, and was sentenced to life in prison. The murder and the trial provoked a national media frenzy, and the once - prominent Saskatchewan politician was cast nationwide as a villain, the subject of numerous books and a CBC movie. Though Thatcher claimed innocence and his children agreed, few believed him.
Now having served his 22 - year sentence, Colin Thatcher offers his own account of what happened from the time of the murder up until his release from prison. Denied full disclosure during his trial, Thatcher now offers it to the public with evidence not seen in the trial, legal documents and personal correspondence. Part memoir, part crime expos , Final Appeal goes behind the bureaucratic red tape, ultimately questioning the public's faith in local law enforcement, the mainstream media, and the administration of justice in Canada.

12. Bayou Underground Tracing the Mythical Roots of American Popular Music (Large Print 16pt) - Dave Thompson

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: £19.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

The Bayou is a world of its own - a marshy, sometimes treacherous, oft - times sinister land of creeping darkness and living shadows, secret legends and vivid mythology. It is that darkness and those shadows that permeate Bayou Underground, the first study of the Louisiana music scene ever to leave behind the bright lights of big city New Orleans, and plunge instead into the wilderness that not only surrounds the Big Easy, but which stretches for hundreds of miles on either side, from Houston, Texas, to Mobile, Alabama. Bayou Underground explores the music of the region from the House of the Rising Sun to gator hunting with Amos Moses (the one - armed Cajun backwoodsman created by country songwriter Jerry Reed) to artists like Bo Diddley, Nick Cave, Bob Dylan, and Creedence Clearwater Revival, who were influenced by unsung heroes of the Bayou. In Bayou Underground, the people and the cultures that have called the bayou home are unearthed through their words and lives, but most of all through the music that has, over the last century, either arisen from the swamplands themselves, or been drawn from fellow visitors to the region, as they seek to set down for posterity the emotions, dreams, and enchantments that the area instilled in them. Part social history, part epic travelogue, and partly a lament for a way of life that has now all but disappeared, Bayou Underground is the gripping story of American music's forgotten childhood, and the parentage it barely even knows about. By comparison, the Big Easy had it easy.
