On Pandemics: Deadly Diseases from Bubonic Plague to Coronavirus Audiobook

On Pandemics: Deadly Diseases from Bubonic Plague to Coronavirus

Author: David Waltner-Toews Narrator: David Godfrey Release Date: May 2020

Authored by a leading epidemiologist, this engrossing book answers our questions about animal diseases that jump to humans-called zoonoses-including what attracts them to humans, why they have become more common in recent history, and how we can keep them at bay. Almost all pandemics and epidemics have been caused by diseases that come to us from animals, including SARS, Ebola, and-now-Covid-19. Epidemiologist, veterinarian, and ecosystem health specialist, David Waltner-Toews, gathers the latest research to profile dozens of illnesses in On Pandemics. Chapters are broken into short, dynamic explainers, each one tackling a different disease. Readers will discover: - Why zoonotic diseases jump from animals to humans-and why some decide to stick around for good. - How governments have responded to pandemics and epidemics throughout history, for better or for worse. - The role of climate change, industrialized farming, cultural practices, biodiversity loss, and globalization in making these diseases not only possible, but inevitable outcomes of our modern lifestyles. Coronaviruses, such as those that cause SARS and Covid-19, have made bats their home for centuries. Until SARS came along, we didn't know they were there, nor do we know how many other death-dealing viruses might be living undetected in wildlife. On Pandemics shows the greater impact of animal-borne diseases on our world, and encourages us to re-examine our role in pandemics, if not for our own health, then for the health of our planet. Published originally in 2007 as The Chickens Fight Back: Pandemic Panics and Deadly Diseases that Jump from Animals to Humans, this book has been updated in light of the COVID-19 pandemic.

цифры разрушительны. И никто не хочет об этом гово- рить. Более половины мужчин в этой стране в какой-то момент своей жизни страдают эректильной дисфунк- цией. Слишком много мужчин имеют диагноз рак простаты или проблемы с мочеиспусканием. Женщины также не уступают им в этих злободневных проблемах, связанных с сексуальным возбуждением, оргаз- мом или болью во время секса.

Fighting For Your Life: A Paramedic's Story - Real-life stories of heartbreak and hope from the fron Audiobook

Fighting For Your Life: A Paramedic's Story - Real-life stories of heartbreak and hope from the fron

Author: Lysa Walder Narrator: Emma Carter Release Date: April 2020

A teenage boy lies on the pavement, bleeding from a stab wound; a distraught mum watches, in mute shock, as her daughter suffers a terrifying fatal asthma attack; a young girl is gang-raped and her stricken boyfriend takes an overdose; a disturbed young man flings himself in front of a speeding train at the stroke of midnight on New Year's Eve. Few people can imagine living in a world where such situations are part of everyday life. Yet for veteran paramedic Lysa Walder, these and thousands of other emergency call outs are part of a day's work: scenes of tragedy, heroism loss and horror - but also stories of triumph and humour. Lysa has been a paramedic for over twenty years, working for the London Ambulance service - the world's biggest and busiest free service - for much of that time. Here, she reveals what it's really like to work in a job that brings paramedic teams face-to-face with death - and destiny - every day.

Borrowing Life: How Scientists, Surgeons, and a War Hero Made the First Successful Organ Transplant

Author: Shelley Fraser Mickle Narrator: Tom Perkins Release Date: April 2020

Against a global backdrop of wartime suffering and postwar hope, Borrowing Life gathers the personal histories of the men and women behind the team that enabled and performed the modern medical miracle of the world's first successful organ transplant.

Drawing on the lives of these members of the Greatest Generation, Borrowing Life creates a compelling narrative that begins in wartime and tracks decades of the ups and downs, personal and professional, of these inspiring men and their achievements, which continue to benefit humankind in so many ways.

Contraception: A Concise History Audiobook

Contraception: A Concise History

Author: Donna J. Drucker Narrator: Christa Lewis Release Date: April 2020

The beginning of the modern contraceptive era began in 1882, when Dr. Aletta Jacobs opened the first birth control clinic in Amsterdam. The founding of this facility, and the clinical provision of contraception that it enabled, marked the moment when physicians started to take the prevention of pregnancy seriously as a medical concern. In this volume in the MIT Press Essential Knowledge series, Donna Drucker traces the history of modern contraception, outlining the development, manufacturing, and use of contraceptive methods from the opening of Dr. Jacobs's clinic to the present. Drucker approaches the subject from the perspective of reproductive justice: the right to have a child, the right not to have a child, and the right to parent children safely and healthily. Drucker describes contraceptive methods available before the pill, including the diaphragm and condom. She looks at the development and dissemination of the pill and its chemical descendants; describes technological developments in such non-hormonal contraceptives as the cervical cap and timing methods; and explains the concept of reproductive justice. Finally, Drucker considers the future of contraception-the adaptations of existing methods, new forms of distribution, and ongoing efforts needed to support contraceptive access worldwide.

Navigating Life with Chronic Pain Audiobook

Navigating Life with Chronic Pain

Author: Lindsay Zilliox, M.D., Robert A. Lavin, Ph.D., Sara Clayton, Ph.D. Narrator: Suzie Althens Release Date: April 2020

Navigating Life with Chronic Pain provides accessible, comprehensive, and up-to-date information about the challenges patients, family, and caregivers face when confronted by chronic pain. No two pain experiences are the same, so your chronic pain depends on where you have pain, how long you have experienced pain, and how the pain symptoms developed. Everyone needs a customized approach because pain symptoms, other medical conditions, past pain experiences, beliefs about pain, environment, ability to cope with the pain, and financial and social support (like family, friends, and caregivers) are different for every person. This book aims to provide clear and reliable information about chronic pain, including 'what' (definition), 'how' (pathophysiology), and 'why' (etiology). The authors expertly guide the listener through current approaches to diagnoses, including a review of diagnostic tests, as well as a comprehensive, integrated approach to chronic pain treatment. Through the use of patient stories, you get real-world experiences and advice on navigating the day-to-day challenges of chronic pain. You will learn how to take control of your chronic pain using a variety of tools, like behavioral, exercise and nutritional approaches, medications, alternative treatments (yoga and tai chi), and injections or surgery.

Sex, Lies, and Menopause: The Shocking Truth About Synthetic Hormones and the Benefits of Natural Al Audiobook

Sex, Lies, and Menopause: The Shocking Truth About Synthetic Hormones and the Benefits of Natural Al

Author: T.S. Wiley Narrator: Coleen Marlo Release Date: April 2020

In this revolutionary work-a landmark that signals the true beginning of feminist medicine-a doctor, a philosopher, and a scientist prove that by postponing marriage and motherhood, women have accelerated the aging process, resulting in earlier menopause and, ultimately for thousands, earlier death. In Sex, Lies, and Menopause, T. S. Wiley, Julie Taguchi, MD, and Bent Formby, PhD, offer strong evidence that the use of synthetic hormones leads to cancer and advise women to turn to natural hormone-replacement therapy-derived from plants, not drugs-to help them elevate their estrogen level for greater energy, libido, and intellectual capacity. Provocative, empowering, and scientifically sound, Sex, Lies, and Menopause addresses the inherent benefits of natural progesterone, reveals the lies advanced by the medical and drug establishments, and challenges women to demand a medical future where their health comes first. The research presented in Sex, Lies, and Menopause will at last allow women to create their own plan of action to put themselves safely on the path to better health and hormonal balance at any stage of life.

Make America Healthy Again: How Bad Behavior and Big Government Caused a Trillion-Dollar Crisis Audiobook

Make America Healthy Again: How Bad Behavior and Big Government Caused a Trillion-Dollar Crisis

Author: Nicole Saphier Narrator: Emily Durante Release Date: April 2020

If Americans want to know why their health care is so costly and getting costlier, they need only look in the mirror. Americans are notoriously unhealthy—we eat too much, drink too much, and sit too much. When roughly 80 percent of cardiovascular disease and 40 percent of all cancer cases could be prevented by simple lifestyle changes, it is time to take a deeper look at the problem and ask who is truly responsible. Consider that:  ·         After seventy years of innovation, heart disease and cancer remain the top two causes of death in the United States. ·         In 1960, health care spending was 5 percent of America's GDP; today, it is 17.5 percent. ·         The government spends over $1 trillion annually on health care. ·         Nearly one in five American deaths is associated with poor diets. ·        Simply reducing sodium intake by 1,200 mg per day could save up to $20 billion a year in medical costs.   In Make America Healthy Again, Nicole Saphier, a Memorial Sloan Kettering physician, nationally recognized patient advocate, and media personality, reveals how individual negligence and big government incompetence have destroyed America’s health care system. Combining historical events, economic trends, and essential lifestyle advice, with her unique perspective, she offers concrete solutions to address this epic problem. We don’t need socialized medicine—we need to take better care of ourselves. By getting healthier and adopting preventative measures, Saphier believes, we can reduce the astronomical costs of treatment and improve overall care. The only way to lower medical costs for everyone is to stop incentivizing bad health decisions. Policies such as the Affordable Care Act and single-payer plans ignore something crucial to lowering the overall financial burden: personal responsibility. We can no longer expect doctors and the government to fix illnesses we have the power to prevent. Regardless of which health policy is adopted, our nation will flounder unless we take action. It is up to the American people to make America healthy again. Supplemental enhancement PDF accompanies the audiobook.

Biography of Resistance: The Epic Battle Between People and Pathogens Audiobook

Biography of Resistance: The Epic Battle Between People and Pathogens

Author: Muhammad H. Zaman Narrator: Kyle Tait Release Date: April 2020

Award-winning Boston University educator and researcher Muhammad H. Zaman provides a chilling look at the rise of antibiotic-resistant superbugs, explaining how we got here and what we must do to address this growing global health crisis. In September 2016, a woman in Nevada became the first known case in the U.S. of a person who died of an infection resistant to every antibiotic available. Her death is the worst nightmare of infectious disease doctors and public health professionals. While bacteria live within us and are essential for our health, some strains can kill us. As bacteria continue to mutate, becoming increasingly resistant to known antibiotics, we are likely to face a public health crisis of unimaginable proportions. “It will be like the great plague of the middle ages, the influenza pandemic of 1918, the AIDS crisis of the 1990s, and the Ebola epidemic of 2014 all combined into a single threat,” Muhammad H. Zaman warns. The Biography of Resistance is Zaman’s riveting and timely look at why and how microbes are becoming superbugs. It is a story of science and evolution that looks to history, culture, attitudes and our own individual choices and collective human behavior. Following the trail of resistant bacteria from previously uncontacted tribes in the Amazon to the isolated islands in the Arctic, from the urban slums of Karachi to the wilderness of the Australian outback, Zaman examines the myriad factors contributing to this unfolding health crisis—including war, greed, natural disasters, and germophobia—to the culprits driving it: pharmaceutical companies, farmers, industrialists, doctors, governments, and ordinary people, all whose choices are pushing us closer to catastrophe. Joining the ranks of acclaimed works like Microbe Hunters, The Emperor of All Maladies, and Spillover, A Biography of Resistance is a riveting and chilling tale from a natural storyteller on the front lines, and a clarion call to address the biggest public health threat of our time.
