            The mental health crisis is caused by a modern-day phenomenon - the world is moving faster than human evolution. We've been outpaced. And as the world changes, so do the damn rules. The game of life's difficult enough, but if you're playing by the old rules, you're doomed to fini...sh amongst the also-rans. To do more than survive - to thrive and come alive - you need to ditch the tired old wisdom. For example: You only live once. Really? The truth is that you only die once. You get to live every single day. You just need to know how. #YODO comprises 30 'rules' that just are. Learn them, apply them and live by them because, best of all, they just work.

            Award-winning investigative reporter Brian Deer reveals the shocking truth behind the rise of Andrew Wakefield ? the so-called father of the anti-vaccine movement. In February 1998, a then-unknown British doctor, Andrew Wakefield, published an explosive scientific paper in a top ...medical journal, The Lancet. Researching twelve developmentally challenged children, he claimed to have found evidence that MMR, the lifesaving three-in-one vaccine against measles, mumps, and rubella, was causing a frightening 'new syndrome' of autism and bowel disease. As a result, a generation of young parents were terrified, and vaccination rates plummeted. In The Doctor Who Fooled the World, Brian Deer cuts to the heart of the most damaging medical conspiracy of our time. The only journalist to crack Wakefield's secrets, Deer explains how he gained legal access to patients' records, uncovering the truth about their histories and diagnoses, His landmark fifteen-year inquiry saw Wakefield struck from the medical register, his research retracted, and his claims about MMR dubbed 'an elaborate fraud'. In this riveting detective story, Deer lays bare the rigged research, secret business schemes, and financial and commercial conflicts of interest that lay behind Wakefield's original false claims - and the continuing smear campaigns that have aimed to keep the truth hidden. Now resurrected in the United States, Wakefield dominates a broader international anti-vaccine campaign, exporting his claims everywhere. Alarmingly, widespread outbreaks of measles have returned to threaten children's health. As before, the facts don't fit the story, but that hasn't got in the way of Wakefield's new campaign.

            Genes - we all have them and we're all affected by them, often in unknown ways. Whether directly inherited or modified by our environment, genes control or significantly influence almost every aspect of our lives, from the success of our conception and the development of our sexu...al characteristics, to the colour of our skin, hair, and eyes; our height and weight; our health; and, unfortunately, an untold number of diseases. For many, the first time that genetics truly matters to them is in a doctor's office as they learn about a condition that may affect them, their unborn children, or even their wider family. Yet from the first laborious survey of the human genome twenty years ago to the commercial machines that now sequence 6,000 genomes per year, a revolution is taking place in medicine. Navigating this world of heartbreaking uncertainties, tantalising possibilities, and thorny questions of morality is Professor Edwin Kirk, a rare doctor who works both in the lab and with patients, and who has over two decades of experience. In The Genes That Make Us, he explains everything you need to know with clarity, insight, and great humanity.

            While the government and nutritional agencies still spout the failed mantra of calorie reduction, doctors treating diabetes and obesity are experiencing extraordinary results among patients cutting out carbs; a diet which has the essential benefit of allowing you to lose weight w...ithout leaving you feeling hungry, one of the biggest reasons diets fail. With forensic journalistic rigour and in compelling prose, Taubes analyses the bad science behind our nutritional dogma that has brought us to a diabetic and obesity crisis. He shows that weight gain is driven by genetic, hormonal factors - and not 'gluttony' as is so commonly the underlying suggestion - citing compelling evidence that people with the propensity to fatten more easily than the lean among us can be helped by a low carbohydrate diet, diets discredited in the 70s and 80s as 'fads'. This groundbreaking read offers hope to anyone wishing to prevent or reserve diabetes or obesity - as well as anyone wanting to eat more healthily - and will fundamentally change our habits around food forever.
