            How is it that a baboon and a blob of slime mould instinctively know what to eat, yet humans can't seem to figure it out? When and why did we lose the basic knowledge to intuit what foods our body needs, and in what proportions?

            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.

            A breakthrough method-grounded in almost 100 years of scientific research-to master all types of diabetes by reversing insulin resistance. In Mastering Diabetes, Cyrus Khambatta, PhD and Robby Barbaro, MPH, explain why the current medical advice to eat a low-carbohydrate, high-fa...t diet improves short-term blood glucose control but increases the long-term risk for chronic diseases like cancer, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, chronic kidney disease, and fatty liver disease. The creators of the popular Mastering Diabetes Method lay out a step-by-step plan proven to reverse insulin resistance-the root cause of blood glucose variability-in people with type 1 and 1.5 diabetes, type 2 diabetes, prediabetes, and gestational diabetes, while maximizing your life expectancy. Armed with more than 36 years of personal experience living with type 1 diabetes, the authors teach you how to eat carbohydrate-rich whole foods like mangoes, potatoes, and quinoa while decreasing your blood glucose and medication requirements. With more than 30 delicious, filling, and nutrient-dense recipes and backed by cutting-edge nutritional science, Mastering Diabetes will help you maximize your insulin sensitivity, attain your ideal body weight, improve your digestive health, gain energy, live an active life, and feel amazing!
