Mentre llegeixes aquestes paraules, segur que has fet com a mínim una inspiració. Què ha entrat dins els teus pulmons? Literalment, trilions de substàncies; tan petites que ens passen desapercebudes, tan nombroses que en perdem el compte. Algunes, com l’oxigen, són prou conegudes; d’altres, com l’ozó, no ho són tant, però no per això tenen menys importància. Aquest llibre tracta sobre els elements que componen l’atmosfera, i ho fa d’una manera tan amena i amb un enfocament tan ampli que va més enllà de la mera descripció química per parlar d’història, ciència, tecnologia, indústria, medi ambient, salut, societat, i fins de l’univers mateix. Combinant el rigor científic amb exemples i anècdotes curioses, l’autor revela els secrets d’unes substàncies que ens fan viure i que ens poden enverinar, que ens són properes i alhora desconegudes, que formen, en definitiva, l’únic bé que compartim tots els éssers vius del planeta.

<b>From the best-selling author of <i>Why We Get Fat, </i>a groundbreaking, eye-opening exposé that makes the convincing case that sugar is the tobacco of the new millennium: backed by powerful lobbies, entrenched in our lives, and making us very sick.</b> <br /><br />Among Americans, diabetes is more prevalent today than ever; obesity is at epidemic proportions; nearly 10% of children are thought to have nonalcoholic fatty liver disease. And sugar is at the root of these, and other, critical society-wide, health-related problems. With his signature command of both science and straight talk, Gary Taubes delves into Americans' history with sugar: its uses as a preservative, as an additive in cigarettes, the contemporary overuse of high-fructose corn syrup. He explains what research has shown about our addiction to sweets. He clarifies the arguments against sugar, corrects misconceptions about the relationship between sugar and weight loss; and provides the perspective necessary to make informed decisions about sugar as individuals and as a society.<br /><br /><br /><i>From the Hardcover edition.</i>

<strong>From <em>New York Times </em>bestselling author Sam Kean comes incredible stories of science, history, finance, mythology, the arts, medicine, and more, as told by the Periodic Table. </strong></br></br> Why did Gandhi hate iodine (I, 53)? How did radium (Ra, 88) nearly ruin Marie Curie's reputation? And why is gallium (Ga, 31) the go-to element for laboratory pranksters?*<br /><br />The Periodic Table is a crowning scientific achievement, but it's also a treasure trove of adventure, betrayal, and obsession. These fascinating tales follow every element on the table as they play out their parts in human history, and in the lives of the (frequently) mad scientists who discovered them. THE DISAPPEARING SPOON masterfully fuses science with the classic lore of invention, investigation, and discovery--from the Big Bang through the end of time.</br></br> *Though solid at room temperature, gallium is a moldable metal that melts at 84 degrees Fahrenheit. A classic science prank is to mold gallium spoons, serve them with tea, and watch guests recoil as their utensils disappear.
