information that Dr. Larry Romane shares in this little book.

Romane cuts through that jargon to answer questions such as:

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.
