<h2>DISCOVER THE NO B.S. GUIDE TO ALKALINE FOODS FOR EASY WEIGHT LOSS, REBALANCING YOUR PH NATURALLY, & TRANSFORMING YOUR HEALTH!</h2><br /><br />This book contains proven steps and strategies on how to successfully adopt the alkaline diet into your lifestyle. This guide will teach you the biology behind the alkaline diet, how acidic foods damage your cells, how the diet can heal your body, and how to shop for and cook with alkaline ingredients. <br /><br />Here is an inescapable fact: modern eating habits deprive your body of essential nutrients that keep your immune system functioning and your muscles strong. More than eighty percent of adults are magnesium deficient, and seventy- five percent of adults are calcium deficient. When your cells are exposed to too much acid, it makes it impossible for your body to absorb these vital nutrients, resulting in: muscle spasms and aches, kidney stones, depression, memory loss, high blood pressure, anxiety, fatigue, insomnia, and many more disorders and diseases. <br /><br />The alkaline diet cleanses your body of excess acid, heals your cells, and rebalances your pH levels so that you can live a happy and healthy life. <br /><br /><h2>Inside this book, you will Learn:</h2><br />- What is an Alkaline Diet?<br />- Health Benefits of the Alkaline Diet<br />- The Complete Alkaline Shopping List and Foods to Avoid <br />- Is Your Body Too Acidic?<br />- 31 Day All—Inclusive Alkaline Diet Plan <br />- and Much, Much More!<br /><br /><h2><b>So Go Ahead!

<P>Regenerative Engineering and Developmental Biology: Principles and Applications examines cutting-edge developments in the field of regenerative engineering. Specific attention is given to activities that embrace the importance of integrating developmental biology and tissue engineering, and how this can move beyond repairing damage to body parts to instead regenerate tissues and organs. The text furthermore focusses on the five legs of the field of regenerative engineering, including: materials, developmental biology, stem cells, physics, and clinical translation. This book was written by leading developmental biologists; each chapter examines the processes that these biologists study and how they can be advanced by using the tools available in tissue engineering/biomaterials. Individual chapters are complete with concluding remarks and thoughts on the future of regenerative engineering. A list of references is also provided to aid the reader with further research. Ultimately, this book achieves two goals. The first encourages the biomedical community to think about how inducing regeneration is an engineering problem. The second goal highlights the discoveries with animal regeneration and how these processes can be engineered to regenerate body parts. <I>Regenerative Engineering and Developmental Biology: Principles and Applications</I> was written with undergraduate and graduate-level biomedical engineering students and biomedical professionals in mind. </P>

I am inspired to compile this e-booklet of “What is genome editing? Facts about genome editing…” a technique of manipulating genes as it is holding a great promise but needs rules for its use from safety and ethical point of view!<br /> Genome editing is the deliberate alteration of a selected DNA sequence in a living cell. <br /> A strand of DNA is cut at a specific point and naturally existing cellular repair mechanisms, then fix the broken DNA strands. <br /> The way they are repaired can affect gene function and new DNA sequences can be delivered when the DNA is cut and act as templates for generating an altered sequence. <br /> Genome editing techniques can be used to delete sections of DNA or alter how a gene functions: for example, by changing a variant that may give rise to disease to one that functions normally.<br />It has been used:<br />•To Treat Disease- such as MRSA and simple genetic conditions such as Muscular Dystrophy and Hemophilia<br />•For Biotechnology use in Agriculture to genetically modify crops to improve their yields and resistance to disease and <br /> drought, as well as to genetically modify cattle that don’t have horns.<br />•For Research- to change the DNA in cells or organisms to understand their biology and how they work <br /> An attempt has been made to discuss briefly the aforesaid topics in the form of FAQ for my enthusiastic readers!<br /> ..........

Dr Paterson examines the origins of the therapeutic use of occupation in psychiatric and physical medicine in Europe , the influence of Scotland in the professionalisation of the field in the USA and Canada, and the impact of two world wars and the establishment of the National Health Service. She analyses the pivotal role of doctors in the development of the profession, the background of the pioneer Scottish occupational therapists, the foundation and development of the professional organisation, and occupational therapy education. The story of occupational therapy in Scotland from 1900 to 1960 is set within the context of the history of medicine and political, economic, social and cultural factors, as well as the wider history of occupational therapy in the UK and North America. The final chapter is a synopsis of developments 1960 to 2009.<br /><br />This book is based on extensive original archival and oral history research by the author, who herself enjoyed a successful career in occupational therapy. She has produced an account of interest to all those concerned with occupational therapy, as well as histories of medicine, health professions, disability, therapeutic use of crafts and creativity, and women's employment.

A First Course in Systems Biology is an introduction for advanced undergraduate and graduate students to the growing field of systems biology. Its main focus is the development of computational models and their applications to diverse biological systems. The book begins with the fundamentals of modeling, then reviews features of the molecular inventories that bring biological systems to life and discusses case studies that represent some of the frontiers in systems biology and synthetic biology. In this way, it provides the reader with a comprehensive background and access to methods for executing standard systems biology tasks, understanding the modern literature, and launching into specialized courses or projects that address biological questions using theoretical and computational means.<br /><br />New topics in this edition include: default modules for model design, limit cycles and chaos, parameter estimation in Excel, model representations of gene regulation through transcription factors, derivation of the Michaelis-Menten rate law from the original conceptual model, different types of inhibition, hysteresis, a model of differentiation, system adaptation to persistent signals, nonlinear nullclines, PBPK models, and elementary modes.<br /><br />The format is a combination of instructional text and references to primary literature, complemented by sets of small-scale exercises that enable hands-on experience, and large-scale, often open-ended questions for further reflection.

<b>"What's more American than Corn Flakes?" —Bing Crosby<br /><br /></b>From the much admired medical historian (“Markel shows just how compelling the medical history can be”—Andrea Barrett) and author of <i>An Anatomy of Addiction</i> (“Absorbing, vivid”—Sherwin Nuland, <i>The New York Times Book Review</i>, front page)—the story of America’s empire builders: John and Will Kellogg.<br /> <br />John Harvey Kellogg was one of America’s most beloved physicians; a best-selling author, lecturer, and health-magazine publisher; founder of the Battle Creek Sanitarium; and patron saint of the pursuit of wellness. His youngest brother, Will, was the founder of the Battle Creek Toasted Corn Flake Company, which revolutionized the mass production of food and what we eat for breakfast.<br /> <br />In <i>The Kelloggs, </i>Howard Markel tells the sweeping saga of these two extraordinary men, whose lifelong competition and enmity toward one another changed America’s notion of health and wellness from the mid-nineteenth to the mid-twentieth centuries, and who helped change the course of American medicine, nutrition, wellness, and diet.<br /> <br />The Kelloggs were of Puritan stock, a family that came to the shores of New England in the mid-seventeenth century, that became one of the biggest in the county, and then renounced it all for the religious calling of Ellen Harmon White, a self-proclaimed prophetess, and James White, whose new Seventh-day Adventist theology was based on Christian principles and sound body, mind, and hygiene rules—Ellen called it “health reform.”<br /> <br />The Whites groomed the young John Kellogg for a central role in the Seventh-day Adventist Church and sent him to America’s finest Medical College. Kellogg’s main medical focus—and America’s number one malady: indigestion (Walt Whitman described it as “the great American evil”).<br /> <br />Markel gives us the life and times of the Kellogg brothers of Battle Creek: Dr. John Harvey Kellogg and his world-famous Battle Creek Sanitarium medical center, spa, and grand hotel attracted thousands actively pursuing health and well-being. Among the guests: Mary Todd Lincoln, Amelia Earhart, Booker T. Washington, Johnny Weissmuller, Dale Carnegie, Sojourner Truth, Henry Ford, John D. Rockefeller, Jr., and George Bernard Shaw. And the presidents he advised: Taft, Harding, Hoover, and Roosevelt, with first lady Eleanor. The brothers Kellogg experimented on malt, wheat, and corn meal, and, tinkering with special ovens and toasting devices, came up with a ready-to-eat, easily digested cereal they called Corn Flakes.<br /> <br />As Markel chronicles the Kelloggs’ fascinating, <i>Magnificent Ambersons–</i>like ascent into the pantheon of American industrialists, we see the cast changes in American social mores that took shape in diet, health, medicine, philanthropy, and food manufacturing during seven decades—changing the lives of millions and helping to shape our industrial age.

<p><strong>A<em> New York Times</em>, <em>USA Today, </em>and<em> Wall Street Journal</em> Bestseller!</strong></p><p>"<strong>the glowing ghosts of the radium girls haunt us still</strong>."—NPR Books </p><p><em>The incredible true story of the women who fought America’s Undark danger</em></p><p>The Curies’ newly discovered element of radium makes gleaming headlines across the nation as the fresh face of beauty, and wonder drug of the medical community. From body lotion to tonic water, the popular new element shines bright in the otherwise dark years of the First World War.</p><p>Meanwhile, hundreds of girls toil amidst the glowing dust of the radium-dial factories. The glittering chemical covers their bodies from head to toe; they light up the night like industrious fireflies. With such a coveted job, these “shining girls” are the luckiest alive — until they begin to fall mysteriously ill.</p><p>But the factories that once offered golden opportunities are now ignoring all claims of the gruesome side effects, and the women’s cries of corruption. And as the fatal poison of the radium takes hold, the brave shining girls find themselves embroiled in one of the biggest scandals of America’s early 20th century, and in a groundbreaking battle for workers’ rights that will echo for centuries to come. </p><p>Written with a sparkling voice and breakneck pace, <em>The Radium Girls</em> fully illuminates the inspiring young women exposed to the “wonder” substance of radium, and their awe-inspiring strength in the face of almost impossible circumstances. Their courage and tenacity led to life-changing regulations, research into nuclear bombing, and ultimately saved hundreds of thousands of lives...</p>

<b><b>Now an HBO® Film starring Oprah Winfrey and Rose Byrne</b><br><br>#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER<br></b><br>Her name was Henrietta Lacks, but scientists know her as HeLa. She was a poor black tobacco farmer whose cells—taken without her knowledge in 1951—became one of the most important tools in medicine, vital for developing the polio vaccine, cloning, gene mapping, and more. Henrietta's cells have been bought and sold by the billions, yet she remains virtually unknown, and her family can't afford health insurance. This phenomenal New York Times bestseller tells a riveting story of the collision between ethics, race, and medicine; of scientific discovery and faith healing; and of a daughter consumed with questions about the mother she never knew.
