Drawing on the very latest science and his own genetic research at the University of Cambridge, Dr. Giles Yeo has written the seminal "anti-diet" diet book. Exploring the history of our food, debunking marketing nonsense, detoxifying diet advice, and confronting the advocates of clean eating, Giles translates his pioneering research into an engaging, must-read study of the human appetite. In a post-truth world, Gene Eating cuts straight to the data-driven facts. Only by understanding the physiology of our bodies, their hormonal functions, and their caloric needs can we overcome the misinformation of modern dieting trends, empower ourselves to make better decisions, and achieve healthy relationships with food, our bodies, and our weight. Inspiring and revelatory, filled with lively anecdotes and fascinating details, Gene Eating is an urgent and essential book that will change the way we eat." -- Provided by publisher.
THE GREAT PRETENDER THE UNDERCOVER MISSION THAT CHANGED OUR UNDERSTANDING OF MADNESS
by Cahalan, Susannah, author, narrator.
CDBK 362.21 CAH
"For centuries, doctors have struggled to define mental illness--how do you diagnose it, how do you treat it, how do you even know what it is? In search of an answer, in the 1970s a Stanford psychologist named David Rosenhan and seven other people--sane, normal, well-adjusted members of society--went undercover into asylums around America to test the legitimacy of psychiatry's labels. Forced to remain inside until they'd "proven" themselves sane, all eight emerged with alarming diagnoses and even more troubling stories of their treatment. Rosenhan's watershed study broke open the field of psychiatry, closing down institutions and changing mental health diagnosis forever. But, as Cahalan's explosive new research shows, very little in this saga is exactly as it seems. What really happened behind those closed asylum doors, and what does it mean for our understanding of mental illness today?" -- Provided by publisher.
