NEW 2016 EDITION INCLUDES NEW RESEARCH ON HBOT AS A GENE THERAPY TO TREAT TRAUMATIC BRAIN INJURY (TBI) AND OTHER DISORDERS. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) is based on a simple idea—that oxygen can be used therapeutically for a wide range of conditions where tissues have been damaged by oxygen deprivation. Inspiring and informative, The Oxygen Revolution, Third Edition is the comprehensive, definitive guide to the miracle of hyperbaric oxygen therapy. HBOT directly affects the body at the genetic level, affecting over 8,000 individual genes—those responsible for healing, growth, and anti-inflammation. Dr. Paul G. Harch’s research and clinical practice has shown that this noninvasive and painless treatment can help those suffering from brain injury or such diseases as: - Stroke - Autism and other learning disabilities - Cerebral palsy and other birth injuries - Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, multiple sclerosis, and other degenerative neurological diseases - Emergency situations requiring resuscitation, such as cardiac arrest, carbon monoxide poisoning, or near drowning For those affected by these seemingly “hopeless” diseases, there is finally hope in a proven solution: HBOT. From the Trade Paperback edition.

Im going to piss you off, hopefully, in a good way so you can use the energy creatively and help me fight the fire that has been growing ever so steadily in our nation. The title of this book, The Fire Watchers is a metaphor referencing the lack of continuum of care for our mentally ill and substance-addled folks, often one and the same person. Much of my focus is on the veterans returning from harms way in various parts of the world. They have a high rate of mental illnessPTSD (Post- [delayed, sometimes for months or years] traumatic stress disorder} and other maladies like major depression, bi-polar affective disorder, and TBI (traumatic brain injuries). There are many effective treatments for these issues that are not being used as frequently or as effectively as they should. Why not? I will document and discuss major reasons why much of our treatment services delivery system is flawed and, in many places, broken. We need a major effort in this country to repair whats broken. I will take us through, step by step, ways in which we can all work together to provide an efficient, less costly, and model system that rivals any in the world.

BANG is an eyewitness account of the evolution of the universe from the Big Bang to the present. This book is really twofold. On the one hand, the popular science part tells the story of the universe, from the BigBang through the formation of the solar system to the present state of planet Earth; on the other hand, the more philosophic part recounts the peculiarities of humans and their main current problems, suggesting possible solutions all from a detached Quark's point of view.The chapters can be read in numerical sequence (which also reflects the chronological sequence) but for ease of reading chapter 4 is printed first. It describes the main differences between humans and other animals including their abnormal sexual behaviour. The book makes easy bedtime reading.

Free Radicals in Biology and Medicine has become a classic text in the field of free radical and antioxidant research. Now in its fifth edition, the book has been comprehensively rewritten and updated whilst maintaining the clarity of its predecessors. Two new chapters discuss 'in vivo' and 'dietary' antioxidants, the first emphasising the role of peroxiredoxins and integrated defence mechanisms which allow useful roles for ROS, and the second containing new information on the role of fruits, vegetables, and vitamins in health and disease. This new edition also contains expanded coverage of the mechanisms of oxidative damage to lipids, DNA, and proteins (and the repair of such damage), and the roles played by reactive species in signal transduction, cell survival, death, human reproduction, defence mechanisms of animals and plants against pathogens, and other important biological events. The methodologies available to measure reactive species and oxidative damage (and their potential pitfalls) have been fully updated, as have the topics of phagocyte ROS production, NADPH oxidase enzymes, and toxicology. There is a detailed and critical evaluation of the role of free radicals and other reactive species in human diseases, especially cancer, cardiovascular, chronic inflammatory and neurodegenerative diseases. New aspects of ageing are discussed in the context of the free radical theory of ageing. This book is recommended as a comprehensive introduction to the field for students, educators, clinicians, and researchers. It will also be an invaluable companion to all those interested in the role of free radicals in the life and biomedical sciences.

We live in a toxic world. Environmental pollution and disease-causing germs assault us continually day after day. Our food is nutrient deficient and our water supply dangerously contaminated. People today are exposed to chemicals in far greater concentrations then were previous generations. Thousands of tons of man-made chemicals and industrial pollutants are poured into our environment and our food supply daily. With such a massive attack on our health we should all be sick from toxic overload. And we are! In no other time in the history of the world has degenerative disease been as prominent as it is today. Diseases that were rare or unheard of a century ago are now raging upon us like a plague. Millions are dying from diseases that were virtually unknown in the past. Experts tell us that by the time we reach middle age, each one of us will have already been affected by either cancer, cardiovascular disease, or some other serious degenerative condition. Conventional medicine has no sure cure. Drugs, surgery, and radiation treatments can be as dangerous and debilitating as the diseases they attempt to cure. Nature, however, has provided us with the solution. Our bodies are amazingly resilient. If the disease-causing toxins are removed, the body will heal itself. This book outlines the steps you need to take to thoroughly detoxify and cleanse your body from these disease-causing agents. You will also learn how to reduce your toxic exposure and how to strengthen your immune system. Through detoxification you will free yourself from the chains of pain, reverse degenerative conditions, gain more energy, feel and look younger, improve your memory, and be happier. Virtually all the diseases of modern society, including many infectious illnesses, can be avoided or even cured by sensible systematic detoxification. Although we live in a toxic world we can take control of our health. This book will show you how. “The Detox Book is highly recommended for health reference collections.” ―The Midwest Book Review “A comprehensive handbook of detoxification therapies... Chapters give extensive background information on each subject, reports of research, and precise, detailed instructions for self-administration...An encyclopedic look at how we can care for and cleanse our amazingly resilient bodies.” ―Booklist American Library Association “The Detox Book is an excellent primer on cleansing the body. It provides everything you need to know about detoxification, why you must detoxify, and how to get the best results. I highly recommend this down-to-earth and approachable book as the first step along your journey to health.” ―Michelle Cook, Health ‘N Vitality

Astrobiology of Earth

Astrobiology of Earth

View: 338

The study of life in our universe has been given the name 'astrobiology'. It is a relatively new subject, but not a new discipline since it brings together several mature fields of science including astronomy, geology, biology, and climatology. An understanding of the singular conditions that allowed the only example of life that we know exists to emerge and survive on our turbulent planet is essential if we are to seek answers to two fundamental questions facing humanity: will life (and especially human life) continue on Earth, and does life exist elsewhere in the universe? Astrobiology of Earth adopts a unique approach that differs from most texts in the field which focus on the possibility of extraterrestrial life. In contrast, the central theme of this book is the fortuitous combination of numerous cosmic factors that together produced the special environment which enabled the emergence, persistence and evolution of life on our own planet, culminating in humanity. This environment has been subject to constant and chaotic change during life's 3.6 billion year history. The geologically very recent appearance of humans and their effect on the biosphere is discussed in relation to its deterioration as well as climate change. The search for extraterrestrial life is considered with a view to the suggestion that humans may escape a depleted Earth by colonizing the universe. This book contributes to our understanding of astrobiology from the perspective of life on Earth and especially human welfare and survival. Astronomical and geological phenomena are related in turn to their biological relevance and impact. This introductory text assumes little or no prior knowledge of more specialized scientific fields and is designed for undergraduate and graduate level students taking related courses in departments of biology, earth science/geology, and environmental science. It will also serve as a useful biology primer for astronomy majors.

The Semantic Theory of Evolution

The Semantic Theory of Evolution

Author: Marcello Barbieri

Publisher: Routledge

ISBN: 9781000063653

Category: Science

Page: 196

View: 188

Originally published in 1985, The Semantic Theory of Evolution addresses the notion that life is not shaped by the single law of natural selection, but instead by a plurality of laws that resemble grammatical rules in language. This remarkable work presents a semantic theory centering on the concept of the ribotype. Supported by both sound facts and logical arguments, this analysis reaches beyond the established cadre of biological thought to unravel many of life’s mysteries and paradoxes, including the origin of the cell and the nucleus and the evolution of ribosomes.
