About the author (1985)

MICHIO KUSHI came to the United States shortly after World War II upon completing studies at Tokyo University. Since then he has lectured on macrobiotics, the meeting of East and West, traditional Oriental medicine, philosophy, and culture, and the realization of world peace and planetary harmony.
Mr. Kushi is the founder and president of the East West Foundation, Kushi Institute, Kushi Foundation, and Macrobiotics International. With his wife, Aveline, and several of his five children and five grandchildren, he resides in Brookline and Becket, Massachusetts.
ALEX JACK has written several books with Michio and Aveline Kushi including The Cancer-Prevention Diet, Diet for a Strong Heart, Aveline Kushi's Complete Guide to Macrobiotic Cooking for Health, Harmony, and Peace, Macrobiotic Diet, and One Peaceful World. A former editor-in-chief of East West
Journal, he travels and teaches in the United States and abroad.

Aveline Kushi, February 27, 1923 - July 3, 2001 Aveline Kushi was born Tomoko Yokoyama on February 27, 1923 in Yokota, Japan. She was a teacher during World War II, but left to join the World Government Association, an organization devoted to peace. It was while she was there that she changed her name to Aveline. In 1951, Kushi came to the United States to participate in a meeting of students who supported world government. She decided to stay and study at the University of Illinois and Columbia University. As a supporter of the macrobiotic movement, which is a push for people to eat grains and vegetables, but not meat, Kushi took it upon herself to make Americans aware of how full of artifice their food was. In the 60's Kushi moved to Boston with her husband and opened Erewhon, one of the first natural food stores introduced. Kushi wrote many cookbooks, such as "Aveline Kushi's Complete Guide to Macrobiotic Cooking for Health, Harmony and Peace" and "The Changing Seasons Cookbook," and taught cooking classes to those searching for a healthy lifestyle. She helped to make foods like soy sauce, miso and tofu popular. Kushi and her husband created the Kushi Foundation, the Kushi Institute and One Peaceful World, organizations dedicated to promoting macrobiotics. Aveline Kushi died on July 3 from cancer. She was 78.
