Summary

If youre medically curious, then youll love the treasure trove of 
information that Dr. Larry Romane shares in this little book. 
 
This longtime ER doctor has always been surprised at how little people know about medical matters, but he knows that knowledge can be challenging to grasp when doctors call a heart attack an acute myocardial infarction and a simple toothache an anaerobic gingival abscess 
Romane cuts through that jargon to answer questions such as: 

Why is everyone getting diabetes? 
Are brand name medicines safer than generic versions? 
Do you need antibiotics for upper respiratory infections?
 

 
He also shares valuable insights, such as: A pound of fat contains about 3,500 caloriesso cutting 100 calories every day for a year would take off about ten pounds; X-rays may cause future DNA changes in a cell, leading to cancer decades in the future; and only about five percent of dog bites get infected versus sixty percent of cat bitesanother reason a dog is mans best friend. 

 
Youll be surprised by all the medical information you dont know  some of it quite useful  in R U Medically Curious?

    Becoming Spacefarers - Rescuing...

    What is a spacefaring society, and how do we get there from here? In addressing these questions,
    this book examines how partisanship and parochialism have hindered American space dreams in recent
    years, and demonstrates that the lessons we should have learned from U.S. history can put us on a more
    productive path. Instead of being stuck in Stage One space development (space as a training ground), we
    can move more quickly to Stage Two (Earth-Moon space as an industrial park) and eventually to Stage
    Three (human activity across the solar system). The keys to achieving this are routine proximity operations
    throughout Earth-Moon space, sustainable space infrastructure, and a new level of collaboration between
    the public and private sectors  not adventure trips to distant solar system destinations.
    In Becoming Spacefarers: Rescuing Americas Space Program, James A. Vedda, one of the most innovative
    space policy analysts working today, offers a no-nonsense account of the current doldrums of spacefl ight
    in the United States and how the nation might deal with it. He makes clear that we are in a crisis, that
    business as usual will not enable us to overcome it, and that it is not suffi cient to rest on past successes
    or to accept the present partisanship and parochialism. In addition to diagnosing the problems, Vedda
    also offers useful and in some cases provocative prescriptions for how Americans might untie the Gordian
    knot of current approaches to spacefl ight.

    Every human body carries a secret cargo: a huge population of microorganisms living in the mouth, on the skin, in the gut. They help digest our food. They make essential vitamins. They break down toxins and metabolise drugs. They exert an invisible influence on our hormones, our immune systems, perhaps even our brains.
    
    This is the human microbiome – a living, shifting system of previously unimagined importance and complexity.
    
    In this first book-length account of this new realm of human biology, award-winning science writer Jon Turney explores the microbiome in detail, charting its birth and development,  investigating how it works, and assessing its many implications for our health, including its potential to shed new light on conditions such as bowel diseases, cancer, allergies and asthma. He considers the potential impacts of our modern disinfectant and antibiotic obsessions, and ponders a future of designer microbiomes and mood-altering probiotics. 
    
    This book will make you think again about your relationship with your body, your habits – even your sense of who and what you are – as it reveals what it means to be a 21st century superorganism.

    The Rainforest Survivors -...

    Even in our hyper-connected world, there are tribes scattered across the far reaches of the globe who still live much the same way that their ancestors did thousands of years ago. Having had minimal contact with the outside world, these peoples currently live in harmony and unison with the environment around them. But as technology grows and the human population expands, the way of life of these tribes becomes increasingly threatened with every passing day.
    
    
    In The Rainforest Survivors, foreign correspondent Paul Raffaele recounts his time spent with three unique jungle tribes—the peace-loving Congo Pygmies, New Guinea’s tree-dwelling Korowai cannibals, and the Amazon’s ferocious Korubo. Over months spent living in these three communities, Raffaele experienced firsthand wisdom and mysterious rites forged over many millennia.
    
    
    Resonating with high adventure and remarkable characters, The Rainforest Survivors details the daily lives of these relatively unknown peoples and provides key political and environmental context, showing how outside forces are closing in on them and threatening to change forever their ways of life. Enthralling and unforgettable, this compelling book is the important portrait of indigenous peoples living the way they have for centuries.
