            Women are twice as likely as men to be diagnosed with Alzheimer's Disease, and women are far more likely than men to suffer from anxiety, depression, migraines, brain injuries and strokes. The XX Brain reveals groundbreaking research showing that women's brains age distinctly fro...m men's, due mostly to the decline of a key brain-protective hormone: estrogen. Until now, medical research has focused on 'bikini medicine', assuming that women are essentially men with breasts and tubes. The XX Brain reveals how the two powerful X chromosomes that distinguish women from men impact women's brains first and foremost. Taking on all aspects of women's health, including brain fog, memory lapses, depression, stress, insomnia, hormonal imbalances, and the increased risk of dementia, Dr. Mosconi introduces cutting-edge, evidence-based approaches to protect the female brain, including diet and lifestyle strategies proven to work for women. She also examines the controversies about soy and hormonal replacement therapy, the perils of environmental toxins, and gut health. Luckily, it is never too late to take care of yourself. The XX Brain gives women the first plan to address the unique risks and strengths of the female brain for optimal, lifelong brain health.

            This is the story of a family led to confront a crisis they had never foreseen. Aged eleven, their eldest daughter has stopped eating and speaking. Alongside diagnoses of autism and selective mutism, her parents slowly become aware of another source for her distress: her imperill...ed future on a rapidly heating planet. Steered by her determination to understand the truth, the family begins to see the deep connections between their own and the planet's suffering. Against forces that try to silence them, disparaging them for being different, they discover ways to strengthen, heal, and act in the world. And then one day, fifteen-year-old Greta decides to go on strike.

            Greta is eleven years old, and she has stopped eating. She has stopped talking. And she has become fixated on the horrors of the climate crisis, which creep into news bulletins each night. Her parents grapple desperately, hopelessly, to make her better; her sister takes a turn fo...r the worse; day by day, their family life begins to unravel. Four years later, Greta sits outside Swedish Parliament. Her parents watch on as she eats vegan pad thai and chats with a journalist. She is ready for what's coming next, and so are they. They have allowed her to skip school. They have changed their habits. They have quit their jobs, and they have joined their daughter in her fight for the living planet - a fight which will change the world, and save their family. Scenes from the Heart is the remarkable true story of two parents and two daughters, who together have transformed the way we think and talk about our earth. Revealing the intimate, hitherto unseen impact of climate change on our children's and our own mental health, it is a passionate rallying cry for us all to wake up and see things differently - and then join them in the struggle for ourselves and our living planet.

            One doctor's testament to the importance of listening - truly listening - to women and their medical experiences of pregnancy and childbirth. Although there are countless books aimed at expectant mothers and fathers, on subjects from prenatal nutrition to birthing methods, there ...is a lack of works that attempt to illuminate, unpack, and chronicle the complex, potentially life-and-death truth of this fundamental human experience. High Risk fills that gap. From an expert in maternal-foetal medicine - the subspecialty of obstetrics that concerns high-risk pregnancies - here is a timely and unflinching account of all that pregnancy, labour, and birth can entail. As an outspoken champion of women's health, a mother of four, and a humane, wry, and altogether remarkable writer, Dr Chavi Eve Karkowsky tells of miracles and joy, but also of challenge and loss - illustrating the complexity of reproduction and the health services that surround it. With historical insight and journalistic verve, she unpacks what is involved for women, for a family, and for us as a society, and explores what's at risk when these aspects of life remain clouded in mystery and misinformation.

            How proteins, machine learning and molecular chemistry can teach us about the complexities of human behaviour and the world around us How do we understand the people around us? How do we recognise people's motivations, their behaviour, or even their facial expressions? And, when ...do we learn the social cues that dictate human behaviour? Diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder at the age of eight, Camilla Pang struggled to understand the world around her and the way people worked. Desperate for a solution, Camilla asked her mother if there was an instruction manual for humans that she could consult. But, without the blueprint to life she was hoping for, Camilla began to create her own. Now armed with a PhD in Bioinformatics, Camilla dismantles our obscure social customs and identifies what it really means to be human using her unique expertise and a language she knows best: science. Through a set of scientific principles, this book examines life's everyday interactions including: - Decisions and the route we take to make them; - Conflict and how we can avoid it; - Relationships and how we establish them; - Etiquette and how we conform to it. Explaining Humans is an original and incisive exploration of human nature and the strangeness of social norms, written from the outside looking in. Camilla's unique perspective of the world, in turn, tells us so much about ourselves - about who we are and why we do it - and is a fascinating guide on how to lead a more connected, happier life.

            Knowing which health checks and tests to get when can prevent illness, head off problems, and even save your life. This easy-to-use guide explains all the common health tests so that you can understand and manage your wellbeing. When you've had a test, how often do you understand... what the results really mean for your health and your lifestyle? You've probably heard of good cholesterol and bad cholesterol, but what does that mean? And what can you do if you're told your bad cholesterol is high? Why are there two figures to show your blood pressure? Is weight gain hereditary? Be proactive in managing your health by learning more about how your health is measured. Discover what factors influence medical tests, and what lifestyle changes you can make to keep fit and healthy for longer. Explore the variety of tests and screenings you may undergo at a doctor's or workplace health assessment - find out what is tested, why it is tested, and what the results mean. Clear, jargon-free text will highlight the lifestyle changes that you can make to bolster your health. The book first looks at which tests to get when and which factors, including family history and lifestyle, affect your health. It goes on to explain the tests that everyone might undergo; tests specific to age or gender; and specialist tests, such as DNA analysis. The final chapter deals with practical changes you can make to keep you fitter and healthier for longer. There is also a chart for creating a record of your test results. Body MOT is the only visual guide to explain all common medical tests, what the results mean, and what you can do to improve them and take preventative measures so you can minimise the risks and maximise your health.
