Gary Null and Barbara Seaman
Nutritionist and natural-living advocate GARY NULL's film documentaries on the politics of health have won awards around the world, and his daily and weekly radio broadcasts educate millions on nutrition-based approaches to wellness and disease prevention. His books have allowed readers of all ages to know there are alternatives to the often-harmful prevailing medical practices of conventional Western medicine. Null is one of the very few lifelong defenders of America’s fundamental right to stay informed and healthy.
An author, women's health activist, and energizing influence on hundreds of younger writers and organizers for nearly half a century, the legendary BARBARA SEAMAN (1935-2008) persistently challenged the medical establishment and pharmaceutical companies by exposing their drive for profit at the expense of women. After her first three books, the New York Times wrote that she had "triggered a revolution, fostering a willingness among women to take issues of health into their own hands." As Barbara Ehrenreich wrote about the publication of her first book, The Doctors' Case Against the Pill (1969): "For many of us, women's liberation began at that moment." Seaman was a founding advisory board member of and key advisor to Seven Stories Press.
