Hydroponics for the Home: Basic Hydroponic Gardening
by C.D. Shelton
Hydroponics and hydroponic gardening is becoming more of the norm as the population grows and arable land becomes more precious. Less land to work with and more people to feed means that traditional practices of growing food will exist with newer food production methods. One innovative solution is hydroponic food production or a hydroponics growing system where soil is no longer needed to grow plants. Soil acts as a water and mineral nutrient reservoir, but other than acting as a reservoir, soil is not essential for a plant to grow.

This hydroponics for beginners eBook will address the issue of basic hydroponics and how to develop a small plant growth environment using just water and a few minerals.

Food Additives: What to Avoid
by C.D. Shelton
Food additives are substances added to processed foods to preserve flavor or enhance their taste and/or appearance. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) currently lists 3,000 food additives that are approved for food use. Some are labeled generally recognized as safe (GRAS), while some food additives may still threaten our health. There is really very little government oversight for many food additives and ingredients in our food supply.

This eBook will highlight common food additives and possible side effects. The 10 worst food additives and where they are found, along with foods to avoid that are highly processed containing preservatives, chemicals, fillers, and artificial colors and flavors. There are even "Bizarre" facts you will discover about what goes into your favorite meals at local fast food restaurants from human hair, sand, and soil fertilizer to name a few.
