Life Support: Three Nurses on the Front Lines

By Gordon, Suzanne; Fagin, Claire M. [Introduction]

New York: Little, Brown and Company, 1997-03-12. Hardcover. Very Good/Very Good. light edge wear to boards and jacket; previous owners' inscriptions on ffep; Health care systems often seem hobbled by rules and scrubbed clean of personality. Life Support displays their warmer, messier human side by trailing three outspoken nurses on their rounds. One works with cancer patients, another with homebound elderly, while a third mediates between patients and families, doctors and nurses. Between glimpses of large and small life dramas, author Suzanne Gordon (Prisoners of Men's Dreams) considers prejudice and ignorance about nursing. Does lack of ambition or intelligence bar nurses from medical school? Why is their care denigrated, while doctors are elevated? How will sweeping changes in health care affect them and, ultimately, us? Her responses are provocative and far-ranging.

Grain Brain: The Surprising Truth about Wheat, Carbs, and Sugar--Your Brain's Silent Killers

And not just unhealthy carbs like sugar and white bread but healthy carbs, too. That's right: whole grains, brown rice, even certain fruits are destroying your brain, causing: * dementia * ADHD * anxiety * insomnia * chronic headaches * depression In GRAIN BRAIN, David Perlmutter, MD, explains what happens when the brain encounters common carbs like wheat and fructose (the natural sugar found in fruit) and why an extremely low-carb, high-fat diet is ideal. He debunks beliefs about antioxidants, demonstrates how we can take control of the "master switches" in our DNA and offers an in-depth look at some of our most pernicious maladies, explaining how all of these can be remedied without drugs. The book offers a 30-day plan to a healthier brain - with daily menus, recipes and supplement recommendations. With anecdotes based on Dr. Perlmutter's work, scientific research and more, GRAIN BRAIN teaches us how we can take control of our brain health and change our lives forever.

When it comes to your longevity and quality of life, understanding your internal systems gives you the power, authority, and ability to live a healthier, younger, and better life. "You: The Owner's Manual" challenges your preconceived notions about how the human body works and ages, then takes you on a tour through all of the highways, back roads, and landmarks inside of you. After taking a quiz that tests your body of knowledge, you'll learn about all of your blood-pumping, food-digesting, and keys-remembering systems and organs.
