            Welcome to a revolution in the science of human health... This book takes us to the frontier of medical research and reveals stunning recent advances that are changing our understanding of how human body works, how we combat and prevent disease and how we understand what it means... to be human. We see how super-resolution nano-scopes are revealing hitherto hidden operations within our cells and opening up new new ways of manipulating the immune system; how human embryos can now be preserved alive long enough to see how genetic abnormalities can be corrected during the early stages of foetal development; how light is being used to excite pathways in the brain allowing us to understand and manipulate thoughts and feelings; how our rapidly increasing understanding of the microbiome is radically changing every aspect of human biology... These and many more astonishing discoveries are related as gripping dramas of discovery by an award-winning scientist at the very forefront of this adventure.

            Plague of Corruption: Restoring Faith in the Promise of Science (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

            #1 on Amazon Charts, New York Times Bestseller, USA Today Bestseller-Over 100,000 Copies in Print! Kent Heckenlively and Judy Mikovits are the new dynamic duo fighting corruption in science. -Ben Garrison, America's #1 political satirist Dr. Judy Mikovits is a modern-day Rosalind... Franklin, a brilliant researcher shaking up the old boys' club of science with her groundbreaking discoveries. And like many women who have trespassed into the world of men, she uncovered decades-old secrets that many would prefer to stay buried. From her doctoral thesis, which changed the treatment of HIV-AIDS, saving the lives of millions, including basketball great Magic Johnson, to her spectacular discovery of a new family of human retroviruses, and her latest research which points to a new golden age of health, Dr. Mikovits has always been on the leading edge of science. With the brilliant wit one might expect if Erin Brockovich had a doctorate in molecular biology, Dr. Mikovits has seen the best and worst of science. When she was part of the research community that turned HIV-AIDS from a fatal disease into a manageable one, she saw science at its best. But when her investigations questioned whether the use of animal tissue in medical research were unleashing devastating plagues of chronic diseases, such as autism and chronic fatigue syndrome, she saw science at its worst. If her suspicions are correct, we are looking at a complete realignment of scientific practices, including how we study and treat human disease. Recounting her nearly four decades in science, including her collaboration of more than thirty-five years with Dr. Frank Ruscetti, one of the founders of the field of human retrovirology, this is a behind the scenes look at the issues and egos which will determine the future health of humanity.

            The COVID-19 pandemic was not inevitable. We could have stopped it, and we still can stop the next one. Preventable is an important and illuminating book on how politics shape our health. Drawing on the recent history of outbreaks, it examines the triggers behind global health cr...ises and why we so often get our response to them wrong. Comparing the spread of coronavirus in various parts of the world, Professor Devi Sridhar explores why countries such the US and the UK have-against expectations-suffered losses far worse than their poorer neighbours, and how the memory of other recent outbreaks led to very different outcomes in South Korea and West Africa. Combining science, politics, ethics and economics, it is a dazzling dissection of the global structures that determine our fate, and the deep-seated economic and social inequalities at their heart. Highlighting lessons learned from past and present, Sridhar sets out a vision for how we can better protect ourselves from the inevitable health crises to come. It is an urgent book that will challenge, outrage and inspire.
