The RealAge Makeover: Take Years off Your Looks and Add Them to Your Life

In the last several years, Dr. Roizen and his team have learned much more about the aging process. The RealAge® Makeover makes sense of recent critical medical findings -- important new research on inflammation in your arteries, stress reduction, chronic disease management, hormone replacement therapy, and other choices you can make to keep aging at a distance. You'll also find the latest on vitamins and other supplements, which are age reducing, which are aging, and which ones to avoid if you are taking certain medications. Roizen then offers more than seventy ways to reduce or even prevent 80 percent of the diseases that make you feel older. For example, coffee or the right kind of chocolate in moderate amounts can help reduce inflammation, preserving your arteries, joints, and memory. But the wrong choice can lead to needless aging and loss of energy, such as taking too much Vitamin A. And The RealAge® Makeover tells you how much (in years) each choice is worth so you can make the choices that are meaningful to you. Learn more

Eat to Live: The Amazing Nutrient-Rich Program for Fast and Sustained Weight Loss, Revised Edition

Americans spend more than $40 billion annually on diets and weight-reducing programs, many of which work temporarily, fail, or may be dangerous. Fuhrman's nutrient-packed, healthful approach to nutrition combined with quick weight loss can be expressed in this equation, health=nutrients intake/calories intake. The more nutrient-heavy the intake, the less caloric and more healthy it is. Encouraging, engaging personal stories from Fuhrman's treatment of over more than 10,000 patients demonstrate his supposition that eating ever-larger portions of healthful, high-nutrient foods decreases desire for low-nutrient foods, loosening their addictive hold on people. Pictures work effectively in this newly revised update of a nutrition-weight control classic. Drawings show, for instance, the stomach-filling efficiency of 400 calories of high-nutrition intake versus 400 calories of high-fat and oil consumption, which leaves a nearly empty stomach hungry. With FAQs, glossary, end notes, and an index for user friendliness. Pass the eggplant! --Whitney Scott Learn more

Human Development


Human Embryology & Teratology, 3rd Edition

In the years since its first publication, O'Rahilly and Muller's Human Embryology and Teratology has been widely praised as an exceptional reference on normal and abnormal human prenatal development. This revised and expanded Third Edition offers more in-depth coverage of the central topics in human embryology and incorporates the latest data from ongoing embryological investigations. Learn more

The Embryonic Human Brain: An Atlas Of Developmental Stages

The new edition of The Embryonic Human Brain: An Atlas of Developmental Stages represents the integration of analysis of the serial sections of human embryos in the Carnegie collection with results of the latest ultrasound studies. It provides summaries of the morphological status of the brain at each stage of development, covering both normal and anomalous conditions. Preceding the atlas are several chapters that present historical aspects, techniques, and prenatal measurements, as well as an introduction to embryonic staging, and terminology accompanied by over definitions of key terms.

Human Embryology and Developmental Biology: With STUDENT CONSULT Online Access

"This is an excellent introduction to classical human embryology from a mechanistic and molecular viewpoint. It fills an important niche at a time when medical educators are faced with a conundrum. The genetic basis of disease and development are becoming more stressed in medicine at the same time that there is decreased coverage of classical embryology in the undergraduate medical curriculum, where it has been subjugated to a few lectures in most anatomy courses."

Atlas of Human Central Nervous System Development -5 Volume Set: The Human Brain During the Early First Trimester

This is the fifth and last Volume in the Atlas of Human Central Nervous System Development Series. It deals with human brain development during the early first trimester from the third through the seventh gestational weeks. Serial sections from 14 specimens are illustrated and annotated in detail, together with 3D reconstructions of the brains of eight specimens. Learn more

Atlas of Human Central Nervous System Development -5 Volume Set: The Human Brain During the Late First Trimester

The fourth volume in the Atlas of Human Central Nervous System Development series, The Human Brain During the Late First Trimester provides new information about features of the perinatal brain. It deals with brain development during the late first trimester (GW11-GW7.5). The major theme of this volume is the identification of stretches and patches (mosaics) of the NEP matrix along the hypertrophied telencephalic, diencephalic, mesencephalic, and rhombencephalic superventricles. Many putative migratory paths of young neurons on their way to their settling sites are also identified. In the younger specimens, the brain sections are presented as they are embedded in the skull and developing facial structures. The older specimens show the onset of development of some of the large fiber tracts. Learn more

Atlas of Human Central Nervous System Development -5 Volume Set: The Human Brain During the Second Trimester (v. 3)

The brain in the second trimester, the subject of Volume 3, is nearing anatomical maturity throughout the brainstem. In contrast, the neurogenesis and neuronal migration are still in progress in the cerebral cortex and cerebellum. Consequently, the authors chose to focus on the migration, sojourning, and settling of the neuronal populations belonging to these immature structures. Learn more
