BIOGRAPHY



 

Ross brings a lifetime of professional experience in fields related to the preservation of good health. A former chairperson of the Department of Biochemistry, McMaster University Medical Faculty, Hamilton, Ontario, Ross graduated from The University of Toronto in chemistry, and earned his Ph.D. in nutritional biochemistry from Cambridge University.

He combines his expertise in human biochemistry, nutrition, food technology, and the health effects of environmental toxicology into a practical approach that gives people new insights into food and how it affects their health.

In addition to doing original scientific research, Ross has written over 200 articles for magazines and newspapers. He and his wife, Anne Jones Hall, M.A., C.N.S, published a widely-acclaimed newsletter on nutrition and health for health professionals.

Ross' government service has included being an advisor to the Canadian Minister of the Environment and co-Chair of the Human Health Committee of the International Joint Commission. This committee is concerned with the impacts of pesticide residues and industrial contaminants on the health of the 35 million people living around the Great Lakes. He also served on a National Academy of Sciences committee, studying the health and safety issues of nitrites used in food preservation.

Ross is author of:
Food For Nought: The Decline in Nutrition
Health and the Global Environment
The Unofficial Guide to Smart Nutrition

 He regularly comments on food-health issues on radio and television.

Anne and Ross live among the Green Mountains of Southern Vermont.
