            Women are twice as likely as men to be diagnosed with Alzheimer's Disease, and women are far more likely than men to suffer from anxiety, depression, migraines, brain injuries and strokes. The XX Brain reveals groundbreaking research showing that women's brains age distinctly fro...m men's, due mostly to the decline of a key brain-protective hormone: estrogen. Until now, medical research has focused on 'bikini medicine', assuming that women are essentially men with breasts and tubes. The XX Brain reveals how the two powerful X chromosomes that distinguish women from men impact women's brains first and foremost. Taking on all aspects of women's health, including brain fog, memory lapses, depression, stress, insomnia, hormonal imbalances, and the increased risk of dementia, Dr. Mosconi introduces cutting-edge, evidence-based approaches to protect the female brain, including diet and lifestyle strategies proven to work for women. She also examines the controversies about soy and hormonal replacement therapy, the perils of environmental toxins, and gut health. Luckily, it is never too late to take care of yourself. The XX Brain gives women the first plan to address the unique risks and strengths of the female brain for optimal, lifelong brain health.

            The Swedish bestseller that will revolutionise the way you treat your skin. Beautiful, healthy skin is a holy grail for teens with acne and adults with wrinkles alike, and multi-step beauty routines are all the rage. But we know surprisingly little about our largest organ. If we ...knew more, perhaps we wouldn't spend huge amounts of money on products without proven effects. And maybe we'd be more careful about what ingredients they contain. Think drinking water will replenish your skin? Think again. More products, better skin? Nope. And an expensive product doesn't guarantee reliable results. You don't need to cleanse your skin in the morning; in fact, too much cleansing can be damaging. Toner is redundant, natural products are not always best, and bacteria are not the enemy - and that's just the beginning! The Scandinavian Skincare Bible is the first comprehensive guide to skincare that also teaches you about the ingredients of skincare products. By the end of this book, you'll know exactly what it is you're putting on your skin, and which ingredients to look for, and look out for. Using cutting-edge research about the skin's microbiome, as well as the relationship between gut health and skin, The Scandinavian Skincare Bible challenges how we look at skincare today. By revealing the science behind skincare and exposing commercial tricks, Gillbro empowers us to lay the foundation for healthy skin.

            In reality, trauma impacts all of us and many people just don't realise that traumatic experience is the basis of a lot of their unhappiness. The value of understanding ourselves is not always clear in relation to how we interact with others, how we treat ourselves or how we find... our best balance in order to feel that life is fun, enriching and fulfilling. You've heard of Maslow's 'Hierarchy of Needs' - all practical needs for survival. Our primary emotional need is for connection. Our connections as children denote our connective capacity as adults. Author, psychologist and trauma specialist Kerry Howard believes that our challenges as human beings all centre around a central theme: our childhood issues. These issues are at the basis of all of our health challenges in our lives. In The Trouble with Trauma, Kerry brings together the differing elements of trauma in one place incorporating biology, neurology, psychology, physiology and epigenetics to consider the reason that trauma causes physical and psychological changes in our bodies and what we can do to resolve them. Kerry peppers the book with her experiences in applying this information to her own life and with her clients. This book comes from a place of practical experience and credibility across all forms of personal transformation. Kerry provides down-to-earth advice on every aspect of the life-review process and provides a practical framework for understanding how trauma impacts our lives and what we can do to resolve it. The Trouble With Trauma is the answer for those people who have always wanted to be truly happy, focused on their health and satisfied in their bodies, who seek to gain a supportive network of friends and family and healthy relationships.

            A new crop of chemicals is radically changing the recreational-drug landscape. Known as Novel Psychoactive Substances (NPS), these chemicals include replacements for known drugs like cocaine, ecstasy, marijuana, and heroin. They are synthetic, made in a laboratory, and are much m...ore potent than traditional drugs - and, all too often, they are tragically lethal. Fentanyl, Inc. is the first deep-dive investigation of a hazardous illicit industry that has created a worldwide epidemic, ravaging communities and overwhelming and confounding the government agencies that are challenged to combat it. Drugs like fentanyl, with arcane acronyms like 4-ANPP, K2, and NBOMe, were all originally developed in legitimate laboratories for proper medicinal purposes. Their formulas were then hijacked by rogue chemists, largely in China but increasingly in other places, too, who change their molecular structures to stay ahead of the law, a process that makes the drugs' effects impossible to predict. Westhoff has infiltrated this shadowy world. In Fentanyl, Inc., he recounts how he tracked down a mysterious drug baron in New Zealand who unintentionally sparked one aspect of the synthetic-drug revolution. He visits the shady factories in China from which these drugs emanate, providing startling and original reporting on how China's vast chemical industry operates. He chronicles the lives of addicts and dealers, families of victims, law enforcement officers, and underground drug-awareness organisers in the U.S. and Europe. Together, they provide the shocking full picture of a calamity we are only just beginning to understand. And yet from its depths, as Westhoff relates, are emerging new strategies that may provide essential long-term solutions to the drug crisis that has affected so many.

            Understanding how the brain grows and changes through the stages of life is key to health and wellbeing. This is not a book about the differences between male and female brains, nor a book using neuroscience to explain gender-specific behaviours, the 'battle of the sexes' or 'Mar...s-Venus' stereotypes. This is a book about what happens inside the brains and bodies of women as they move through the phases of life, and the unique - and often misunderstood - effects of female biology and hormones. Dr McKay give insights into brain development during infancy, childhood and the teenage years (including the onset of puberty) and also takes a look at mental health as well as the ageing brain. The book weaves together findings from the research lab, case studies and interviews with neuroscientists and other researchers working in the disciplines of neuroendocrinology, brain development, brain health and ageing. This comprehensive guide explores the brain during significant life stages, including: In utero Childhood Puberty The Menstrual Cycle The Teenage Brain Depression and Anxiety Pregnancy and Motherhood Menopause The Ageing Brain

            An anthropologist visits the frontiers of the next scientific revolution to ask- whose values are guiding gene editing experiments, and what are the implications for humanity? At a conference in Hong Kong in November 2018, Dr He Jiankui announced that he had created the first gen...etically modified babies - twin girls named Lulu and Nana - sending shockwaves around the world. A year later, a Chinese court sentenced Dr He to three years in prison for 'illegal medical practice'. As scientists elsewhere start to catch up with China's vast genetic research program, gene editing is fuelling an innovation economy that threatens to widen racial and economic inequality. Fundamental questions about science, health and social justice are at stake. Who gets access to gene editing technologies? As countries around the globe, from the United States to Indonesia, loosen regulations, can we shape research agendas to promote an ethical and fair society? In The Mutant Project, Eben Kirksey takes us on a groundbreaking journey to meet the key scientists, lobbyists and entrepreneurs who are bringing cutting-edge genetic modification tools like CRISPR to your local clinic. He also ventures beyond the scientific echo chamber, talking to disabled scholars, doctors, hackers, activists and chronically ill patients who have alternative visions of a future shaped by genetic engineering.
