Wholesome Nutrition For Mind, Body and Microflora: The Goal of Lacto-Vegetarianism
by B.T. and Yamuna Lingappa

Former Holy Cross Professor B.T. Lingappa and his wife, Yamuna Lingappa, are the co-authors of Wholesome Nutrition For Mind, Body and Microflora: The Goal of Lacto-Vegetarianism (Ecobiology Foundation International, 1992), a book that interprets a century of scientific work on human nutrition from a novel, holistic, evolutionary perspective. The authors illuminate a path away from the problem of overnutrition in industrialized countries and undernutrition in the developing world in the form of a single dietary standard that can improve the health of peoples around the world while maintaining the ecology of the human body. The book includes samples of Udipi cuisine, a vegetarian fare of great antiquity. 

B.T. Lingappa and Yamuna Lingappa have published articles in international scientific journals and have taught courses in human nutrition. The Lingappas have two sons and a daughter and reside in Worcester, Mass.

The Ethics of the Ordinary in Healthcare
by John Abbott Worthley '66

John Abbott Worthley '66 is the author of The Ethics of the Ordinary in Healthcare (Health Administration Press, 1997) which focuses on the everyday ethical dilemmas encountered by healthcare executives. The daily, ordinary routine of healthcare delivery and the power wielded throughout that routine by healthcare professionals-doctors, nurses, managers, technicians-is the focus of readings drawn from various disciplines and case studies. Worthley designed the book to be descriptive, rather than prescriptive, of the reality of power, values, and control in the daily routine of healthcare management and delivery. 

The author of six books and several articles on various aspects of public service management and policy, Worthley is internationally active in the field of professional ethics. He has done consulting work for hospitals, state and local government health departments, and home care agencies, and health-related corporations.
