It's Why You're AliveBook - 2013
The Black Death. Yellow Fever. Smallpox. History is full of gruesome pandemics, and surviving those pandemics has shaped our society and way of life. Every person today is alive because of an ancestor who survived and surviving our current and new pandemics, like SARS, AIDS, bird flu or a new and unknown disease, will determine our future. "Pandemic Survival" presents in depth information about past and current illnesses; the evolution of medicine and its pioneers; cures and treatments; strange rituals and superstitions; and what we are doing to prevent future pandemics. Full of delightfully gross details about symptoms and fascinating facts about bizarre superstitious behaviors, this book is sure to interest even the most squeamish of readers.
