              AUSTRALIA AND NEW ZEALAND EDITION This book charts the trajectory of the COVID-19 virus, from its emergence in China at the end of 2019 to its rapid worldwide spread. Based on the latest scientific discoveries, Dr Mosley gives you a detailed understanding of the secrets of this c...oronavirus, how it spreads, how it infects your body and how your immune system tries to fight back. Armed with the facts you'll be in a much better position to protect yourself and your family when the world begins to reopen. Dr Mosley also follows the work of leading doctors and virus researchers as they battle to find treatments and a safe and effective vaccine (ultimately, the only way to defeat the virus). Eating well, sleeping soundly, exercising and managing your stress are all critical for keeping your brain, body and immune system in the best possible shape over the coming months. These are areas where Dr Mosley is well known for his science-based and practical approach.

              An acclaimed medical expert and patient advocate offers an eye-opening look at many common and widely used medical interventions that are far more harmful than helpful. Modern medicine has significantly advanced in the last few decades as more informed practices, thorough researc...h, and incredible breakthroughs have made it possible to successfully treat and even eradicate many serious ailments. But while we have learned much that has changed our outlook and practices, we still rely on medical interventions that are vastly out of date and can adversely affect our health. It is an article of faith, for example, that finishing a course of antibiotics prevents the recurrence of illness, that sunscreens block harmful UV rays which cause skin cancer, and that all cancer-screening programs save lives. But do scientific studies back up such beliefs? In this game-changing book, infectious-disease expert and Rotavirus vaccine inventor Dr Offit highlights fifteen common medical interventions still recommended and practised by medical professionals, despite clear evidence that they are harmful - including the above examples, as well as the treatment of acid reflux in babies, the lowering of fevers, and the reliance on heart stents and knee surgery. By analysing what makes these practices so ineffective and harmful, and by presenting medical alternatives, Overkill gives patients invaluable information to help them ask their doctors better questions and to advocate for their own health.

Dr. Daniel Fenster guides the reader through a holistic self-therapy program as well as professional treatments to address issues such as chronic pain, insomnia, high blood pressure, GERD, and... more. Fascia is a single, interconnected web of tissue that runs from the top of your head to the bottoms of your feet. It surrounds every organ, every muscle, every bone, and every nerve fiber. And it has an astonishing range of functions. At Complete Wellness, New York City's #1 pain management clinic, director Dr. Daniel Fenster is using both high-tech and low-tech fascia therapies to change the lives of thousands of people for the better. With this book, you'll learn if you have fascia-related problems--and if so, how serious they are. If self-therapy is the right choice for you, Dr. Fenster outlines a simple, effective Fix Your Fascia Plan, a holistic program including stretching, foam rolling, destressing (meditation), fascia-friendly eating, hydration, and self-massage. Dr. Fenster also offers an insider's perspective on the most powerful tools in fascial manipulation: medical massage, acupuncture, cryotherapy, and trigger point therapy and trigger point injections.

              The Rules of Contagion: Why Things Spread - and Why They Stop (Trade Paperback / Paperback, Export / Airside)

              Why do some ideas take off - and others fail to spread? Why are some diseases predictable, and others swamped in uncertainty? And what about the outbreaks that never happen at all? A passenger getting on a plane in Hong Kong can spark an outbreak of flu in Mexico. Someone default...s on their mortgage in Florida, and a financial panic kindles in London. One individual can reach an audience of millions with a single tweet: we live in a world that's more connected than ever before. But even as we see our lives being shaped by the spread of ideas, trends - and even diseases - we sometimes struggle to grasp how it actually works. Outbreaks seem to be driven by randomness and hidden laws, and in order to understand them, we need to start thinking like mathematicians. Here, epidemiologist Adam Kucharski reveals how new mathematical approaches are transforming what we know about contagion - from the revolutionary initiatives that helped tackle gun violence in Chicago to the truth behind the spread of fake news. And along the way, he'll explain how happiness and depression can spread through our friendship networks, why some predictions go badly wrong (and that might not be a bad thing), and why most people are less popular than their friends.
