"Although many are aware that pharmaceutical industry lobbyists influence policy decisions, few know the full consequences. This book is enlightening.

Publisher: Columbia University Press
The Risks of Prescription Drugs tackles critical questions about the pharmaceutical industry and the privatization of risk. To what extent does the FDA protect the public from serious side effects and disasters? What is the effect of giving the private sector and markets a greater role and reducing public oversight? This volume considers whether current rules and incentives put patients' health at greater risk, the effect of the expansion of disease categories, the industry's justification of high U.S. prices, and the underlying shifts in the burden or risk borne by individuals in the world of pharmaceuticals. "Although many are aware that pharmaceutical industry lobbyists influence policy decisions, few know the full consequences. This book is enlightening." Jill Quadagno, author of The Transformation of Old Age Security "Clear, concise, and unflinching, this book provides consumers with tools for self-defense and concerned citizens with a road map for rebalancing American medicine." John Abramson, author of Overdosed America: The Broken Promise of American Medicine "This book introduces important debates on pharmaceutical promotion and marketing, needed drug evaluation and regulation, professional conflicts of interest, and increased medicalization of behavior. It explores important trends and policy questions that all engaged citizens should consider." David Mechanic, author of The Truth About Health Care: Why Reform is not Working in America

**Please note - this is a novella-length piece of fiction (about 20 thousand words)** “I had a surge of kinship the first time I saw the manor, perhaps because we’d both seen better days.” It is 1947. Asharton Manor, once one of the most beautiful stately homes in the West Country, is now a convalescent home for former soldiers. Escaping the devastation of post-war London is Vivian Holt, who moves to the nearby village and begins to volunteer as a nurse’s aide at the manor. Mourning the death of her soldier husband, Vivian finds solace in her new friendship with one of the older patients, Norman Winter, someone who has served his country in both world wars. Slowly, Vivian’s heart begins to heal, only to be torn apart when she arrives for work one day to be told that Norman is dead. It seems a straightforward death, but is it? Why did a particular photograph disappear from Norman’s possessions after his death? Who is the sinister figure who keeps following Vivian? Suspicion and doubts begin to grow and when another death occurs, Vivian begins to realise that the war may be over but the real battle is just beginning… A Prescription for Death is the second in the Asharton Manor Mysteries series: a four part series of novellas spanning the twentieth century. Each standalone story uses Asharton Manor as the backdrop to a devious and twisting crime mystery, from bestselling crime writer Celina Grace, author of The Kate Redman Mysteries.

This groundbreaking book explains prognosis from the perspective of doctors, examining why physicians are reluctant to predict the future, how doctors use prognosis, the symbolism it contains, and the emotional difficulties it involves. Drawing on his experiences as a doctor and sociologist, Nicholas Christakis interviewed scores of physicians and searched dozens of medical textbooks and medical school curricula for discussions of prognosis in an attempt to get to the core of this nebulous medical issue that, despite its importance, is only partially understood and rarely discussed. "Highly recommended for everyone from patients wrestling with their personal prognosis to any medical practitioner touched by this bioethical dilemma."—Library Journal, starred review "[T]he first full general discussion of prognosis ever written. . . . [A] manifesto for a form of prognosis that's equal parts prediction-an assessment of likely outcomes based on statistical averages-and prophecy, an intuition of what lies ahead."—Jeff Sharlet, Chicago Reader "[S]ophisticated, extraordinarily well supported, and compelling. . . . [Christakis] argues forcefully that the profession must take responsibility for the current widespread avoidance of prognosis and change the present culture. This prophet is one whose advice we would do well to heed."—James Tulsky, M.D., New England Journal of Medicine

On December 18, 2009, Marcy Layman woke up to excruciating abdominal pain, and I rushed her to Swedish Emergency in Issaquah, Washington. After an hour of blood tests and ultrasound treatments, I was instructed to take her to a Swedish hospital in downtown Seattle. Three hours of testing later, we were given the news that Marcy had contracted stage IV inoperable pancreatic cancer and had three to six months to live. This journal will take you on a two-year spiritual, medical, nutritional, emotional, and, in some cases, humorous journey while we were finding stronger love and friendship between ourselves and the search for a cure for this insidious disease. Marcys courageous fight against this apocalyptic disease and casting away the Grim Reapers shadow that crossed our doorstep on seven different occasions have inspired a plethora of people. Some people walk through the world and never see it. Marcy was not one of those people. She was interesting and always curious to learn new things. She was funny, loving, and truly creativethe most cherished and giving friend that God, for some reason, saw fit to bless us with. We always question why we were so lucky, and she was absolutely devoted to her family. Marcy didnt just talk her religionshe lived it. For the next twenty-five months, there were fifty chemo treatments; different drugs, both pharmaceutical and naturopathic; and natural remedies from the Middle East, including teas, mushroom, and spices. No rock was left unturned; no treatment or drug was not explored as an option; we educated ourselves about the disease and all the cures and contacted the top cancer institutes in the country, exploring any and all options possible. In the two-plus years that I was Marcys caregiver, there were a lot of rhetorical questions that I asked and had in my mind as I found out there were answerssome of which I liked and some I didnt like. I immediately started to look for answers for what this disease was and why it contracted my lovely bride. I looked for cures over and beyond what the doctors told us and tried to explore every option possible. There is a multitude of questions about cancer, and in this book, you will find many answers. We knew one thing, thoughdeath was not an option!

Most cancer research dollars have been wasted by asking the wrong questions, looking in the wrong places, and recycling the same failed approaches while expecting different results. Conventional cancer treatments damage health, cause new cancers, lower the quality of life, and decrease the chances of survival. In fact, most people who die from cancer are not dying from cancer, but from their treatments! That's the bad news. Here's the good news: We can end the cancer epidemic. In Never Fear Cancer Again, readers will gain a revolutionary new understanding of health and disease and will come to understand that cancer is a biological process that can be turned on and off, not something that can be surgically removed or destroyed with radiation or toxic chemicals. So whether cancer has already been diagnosed or if prevention is the concern, it is possible to turn off the wayward production of these malfunctioning cells once and for all by reading this book and implementing its strategies. The key to any disease has one simple cause: malfunctioning cells that are created by either deficiency or toxicity. By switching off the malfunctioning cells, you switch off the cancer. Never Fear Cancer Again guides readers along six pathways that cause deficiency or toxicity at the cellular level: nutritional path, genetic path, medical path, toxin path, physical path, and the psychological path. By making key lifestyle changes, people truly have the power to take control of cancer and transform their health. This radically different, yet holistic approach restored author Raymond Francis back to health just as it has helped thousands of others, many of whom were told they had no other options or that their cancer was incurable. Take back your health with this book and never fear cancer again.
