Nhan đề: Terrors of the table : the curious history of nutrition / Walter Gratzer Số phân loại : 613.209 W103; Đặc điểm vật lý: ix, 288Tr : Minh họa ; 24 cm
*Tóm tắt : Gratzer recounts this history with characteristic crispness and verve. The book teems with colorful personalities, a veritable who's who of medical history, and highlights the brilliant flashes of insight as well as the sadly mistaken leaps of logic in the centuries-long effort to understand how the body uses food. We see the ingenious experiments used to reveal the workings of the stomach, the chemical analyses that uncovered the nature of proteins, carbohydrates, and vitamins, and the slow recognition that malnutrition lay behind such terrible diseases as scurvy, rickets, beriberi, and pellagra. Along the way, we read about the invention of the tin can (which originally had to be opened with a hammer and chisel), learn why ancient Egyptians had thicker skulls than Persians, and find out about today's fads and fancy diets--some dangerous, others just daft .

Nhan đề: Clean : a history of personal hygiene and purity / Virginia Smith Số phân loại : 613.409 V313; Đặc điểm vật lý: viii, 457 tr. : ill. ; 21 cm
*Tóm tắt : Subconscious cleanliness has been with us since the first cell ejected a foreign invader. Even at the earliest stages of human development, our bodies produced pleasure-giving chemical opiates when things smelled or felt clean, inducing us to do things like bathing and removing dirty clothes. The need to be clean led directly to socialization, as we turned to our fellows for help with those hard to reach spots. In Eurasia during the Bronze Age, an emerging hierarchy of wealthy elites turned their love of grooming into an explosion of the cosmetic and luxury goods industry, greatly effecting the culture and economy of a vast area and leading to advances in chemistry and medicine .

*Tóm tắt : The current political climate adds a whole new element of risk for executives traveling abroad. Personal security can no longer be taken for granted. Terrorism & Personal Security equips executives and government officials with the tools and knowledge to lower their risks on foreign soil. During his eight years with the CIA, William "Mac" Epps taught government executives how to lower their profile as a government official and minimize their chances of a terrorist attack. In this insightful new book, Epps provides an overview of terrorists - why they do what they do, their methods, how they operate - to help readers understand the threat so they can prepare to travel safely. Both practical and thorough, the book explains how to decrease the risk of attack, what to do if you are attacked, and how to survive in a hostage situation. Timely and enlightening, International Terrorism & Personal Security is an excellent resource for senior executives and government officials at all levels. .

It was so good I couldn't put it down: I read it until two in the morning and couldn't get up in time to do my paper round! ...essential for all teenagers and their parents' BL (15) `a hilariously funny but basically serious health education text' Journal of the Institute of Health Education This book is intended for teenagers, parents, teachers .
