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

            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.

            Dr Weekes is the invisible giant on whose shoulders many psychiatrists and psychologists now stand. Her extraordinary story has never been told because she was completely ignored by professionals in the field, who had had no answers to the anxiety state and no understanding of th...e scholarship that lay behind her work. Yet her books, which sold for a handful of dollars, worked. The mail from grateful readers was unceasing and unmanageable, and the media competed for interviews with her. Dr Weekes's approach to treating anxiety proved state-of-the-art, and her books still change lives. Her work benefitted tens of millions of people, according to one of the foremost experts in anxiety, Dr David Barlow. How was it that she came to have such a unique understanding of the anxiety state, which was an epidemic hiding in plain sight? Cracking the anxiety code was a long, isolated, individual mission. It started when a terrified young woman, about to earn her first doctorate, was standing on a London wharf in 1929 feeling she simply couldn't go on. It ended with her changing the trajectory of global treatment.

            Despite advances in health care, infectious microbes continue to be a formidable adversary to scientists and doctors. Vaccines and antibiotics, the mainstays of modern medicine, have not been able to conquer infectious microbes because of their amazing ability to adapt, evolve, a...nd spread to new places. Terrorism aside, one of the greatest dangers from infectious disease we face today is from a massive outbreak of drug-resistant microbes. Deadly Outbreaks recounts the scientific adventures of a special group of intrepid individuals who investigate these outbreaks around the world and figure out how to stop them. Part homicide detective, part physician, these medical investigators must view the problem from every angle, exhausting every possible source of contamination. Any data gathered in the field must be stripped of human sorrows and carefully analyzed into hard statistics. Author Dr. Alexandra Levitt is an expert on emerging diseases and other public health threats. Here she shares insider accounts she's collected that go behind the alarming headlines we've seen in the media: mysterious food poisonings, unexplained deaths at a children's hospital, a strange neurologic disease afflicting slaughterhouse workers, flocks of birds dropping dead out of the sky, and drug-resistant malaria running rampant in a refugee camp. Meet the resourceful investigators--doctors, veterinarians, and research scientists--and discover the truth behind these cases and more.
