Book description
We generally believe that lines and wrinkles are an unavoidable part of the aging process. According to Nicholas Perricone, M.D., they are actually due to "inflammation" caused by poor nutrition, pollution, sunlight, irritating skin care treatments, and stress. In fact, this type of inflammation is more than just a beauty problem. This inflammation will damage the cells and organs in the body and also increases the likelihood of heart disease, cancer, diabetes, and arthritis. The good news is the Perricone Prescription Program can prevent and even reverse these problems. The program will not only produce visible improvement in the skin, it will improve your body's overall health and appearance. Dr. Perricone has developed his own patented s...

Dr. Weil has raised dispensing health advice to an art form. Instead of making his audience feel inadequate or guilty about bad habits, he seems to subconsciously convince readers to do better merely by presenting health facts in a non-threatening way. Healthy Aging is his most scientifically technical book yet (you'll learn all about enzymes like telomerase and cell division and the chemistry behind phytonutrients like indole-3-carbinol, and the connection between cancer and other degenerative diseases like diabetes) yet by far his most fascinating. His main mission here is to recommend "aging gracefully," which he considers accepting the process instead of fighting it. As the director of the country's leading integrative-medicine clinic (...

Book description
From a forlorn cemetery in Northern Michigan, an ethereal presence follows the author home. Years later, he returns to channel his perceptions of life and death through her... Kidnapped at the age of four by his father, Aaron Burke knows moments of great joy as his life progresses, but after the death of his wife, he cannot bear to look upon his children in whom he sees her face, and abandons them. Several years later, he falls to an inconsequential death. Shielded from contact with everything he ever cared about and stuck in a seemingly meaningless existence as a ghost, Aaron examines his role in life and recognizes within himself the patterns that created his own misery, then takes corrective measures.

Book description
Body Brokers is an audacious, disturbing, and compellingly written investigative exposé of a little known aspect of the “death care” world: the lucrative business of procuring, buying, and selling human cadavers and body parts.   Every year human corpses meant for anatomy classes, burial, or cremation find their way into the hands of a shadowy group of entrepreneurs who profit by buying and selling human remains. While the government has controls on organs and tissue meant for transplantation, these “body brokers” capitalize on the myriad other uses for dead bodies that receive no federal oversight whatsoever: commercial seminars to introduce new medical gadgetry; medical research studies and training cours...
