            Eating Disorders: What Everyone Needs to Know (R) (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

            By Walsh, B. Timothy; Attia, Evelyn; Glasofer, Deborah R.

            Eating disorders are potentially life-threatening psychiatric illnesses commonly accompanied by serious medical problems. They typically appear during adolescence or early adulthood, a time when young people are heading to college or interviewing for a first job. Many people reco...ver fully from eating disorders, but others become chronically ill, and symptoms can continue into middle age and beyond. Written by leading authorities in eating disorders research and treatment, Eating Disorders: What Everyone Needs to Know answers common questions about eating disorders, including anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, and binge eating disorder, as well as a newly described condition, avoidant/restrictive food intake disorder (ARFID). Practical yet authoritative, the book defines the eating disorders, explains what we know about them based on the latest science, and describes how treatment works. Importantly, the book dispels common myths about eating disorders, such as the notion that they occur only amongst the affluent, that they affect only girls and women, or that they simply result from environmental factors such as the fashion industry and society's obsession with thinness. In reality, as the book explains, there is substantial evidence that eating disorders are brain-based illnesses that do not discriminate, and that they have been around for a very long time. Eating Disorders: What Everyone Needs to Know is essential reading for those seeking authoritative and current information about these often misunderstood illnesses.

            Can't sleep? Who better to deliver the recipe for a peaceful night based on groundbreaking sleep science than the bestselling author of The Fast 800, The Clever Guts Diet and The 8-week Blood Sugar Diet. Getting a good night's sleep can improve your mood, cut your risk of depress...ion, help you fight chronic disease, keep you slim and even improve your memory; so why is it that so many of us don't prioritise the necessary 7-8 hours a night? In Fast Asleep, Dr Michael Mosley brings together the latest science to explain exactly what happens to us when we sleep and why it is so important that we get enough of it. Prone to insomnia, he has taken part in numerous sleep experiments and tested every sleep remedy going. He explains why so many of us struggle with sleep, what works and what doesn't and shares his own myth-busting programme to help you achieve a good night's rest. Along with fascinating case studies, 50 delicious, sleep-promoting recipes and menu plans by his wife Dr Clare Bailey, this book explains why gut health and meal times matter, explores the science of dreaming and reveals tips and tricks to help you not just to sleep better but to reduce stress levels and feel happier and healthier in general.

            A thrilling, fact-packed journey of discovery through the body's immune system. The human body is like an exceedingly well-fortified castle, defended by billions of soldiers essential in protecting us from disease. This hidden army is our immune system, and without it we could no...t survive the eternal war between us and our microscopic enemies. In Immune, Catherine Carver provides an entertaining, intriguing, and accessible account of the body's defenses against disease. Immune explores the incredible arsenal that lives within us--how it knows what to attack and what to defend, and how it kills everything from the common cold to the plague bacterium. We see what happens when the immune system turns on us, and conversely how impossible life is without its protection. We learn how diseases try to evade the immune system, how they exploit vulnerabilities and even subvert it to their own advantage, and we discover how scientists are designing new drugs to harness the power of the system to advance medicine in the 21st century. Some of the topics explored include why are so many people allergic to cats, but so few to hamsters? Do transplants ever reject their new bodies? What is pus? How does your body develop new weapons for new enemies? Why is cancer so hard for our immune system to fight? How does our immune system remember? Why did the 1918 flu pandemic kill mainly young, healthy people? Why did the 2009 swine flu outbreak lead to a spike in sleep disorders? Can we smell someone else's immune system, and does that help us subconsciously decide who we fall in love with? Drawing on everything from ancient Egyptian medical texts to cutting-edge medical science, the book takes readers on an adventure packed with weird and wonderful facts about their own defense mechanisms, making this both informative and great fun to read.
