How Science, History, and Culture Drive Our Obsession with Weight--and What We Can Do about It
Author: Harriet Brown
Pubpsher: Hachette UK
Over the past twenty-five years, our quest for thinness has morphed into a relentless obsession with weight and body image. In our culture, "fat" has become a four-letter word. Or, as Lance Armstrong said to the wife of a former teammate, "I called you crazy. I called you a bitch. But I never called you fat." How did we get to this place where the worst insult you can hurl at someone is "fat"? Where women and girls (and increasingly men and boys) will diet, purge, overeat, undereat, and berate themselves and others, all in the name of being thin? As a science journalist, Harriet Brown has explored this collective longing and fixation from an objective perspective; as a mother, wife, and woman with "weight issues," she has struggled to understand it on a personal level. Now, in Body of Truth, Brown systematically unpacks what's been offered as "truth" about weight and health. Starting with the four biggest lies, Brown shows how research has been manipulated; how the medical profession is complicit in keeping us in the dark; how big pharma and big, empty promises equal big, big dollars; how much of what we know (or think we know) about health and weight is wrong. And how all of those affect all of us every day, whether we know it or not. The quest for health and wellness has never been more urgent, yet most of us continue to buy into fad diets and unattainable body ideals, unaware of the damage we're doing to ourselves. Through interviews, research, and her own experience, Brown not only gives us the real story on weight, health, and beauty, but also offers concrete suggestions for how each of us can sort through the lies and misconceptions and make peace with and for ourselves.
Danger Surrounds Her. . . A nurse in the tough South Bronx, pretty Dana Molloy has always sacrificed her happiness to care for others. Now, on the eve of a much-deserved vacation, a drive-by shooting leaves her wounded and a teenager dead. When officials ignore the crime, Dana is mad as hell, determined to get action, and right up in the face of Bronx homicide detective Jonathan Stone. . . Desire Tempts Her. . . It's a face Dana can't resist, even though it belongs to the last type of man she ever thought she'd fall for--a cop. Despite her intentions to distance herself from him emotionally, Dana feels the pull of an attraction that is at once both mutual and compelling. But when someone tries to run her down, she turns to Jonathan for both his protection and to find out who really wants her dead. . . Can Love Save Her? But the answers she seeks are more complicated than anyone expects. As the sins of the past and the sordidness of the present collide on the mean streets, the path before Dana may lead to Jonathan's arms--or to the wrong place, the wrong time, and the hands of a killer.

He also finds that Lena Muller is not the young woman either he or her parents thought her to be - and that he is searching for a harsher truth than he dared imagine ...

Dr. Phineas Parkhurst Quimby (1802-1866) was a lifelong resident of Belfast, ME and a clockmaker, by trade. From the late 1840s until the time of his transition, he wrote down his own particular philosophical, psychological and metaphysical views on life, death, health, religion and the mind. His early studies of hypnosis, then called mesmerism, led him later on to develop his unique method of healing for both mental and physical affirmities. Proud of his New England heritage, passionate in his love of liberty and equality for all, outspoken in his admonitions against what he considered aristocracy and priestcraft, empathetic toward the sick and suffering, he recorded his experiences, experiments and case studies of his own life journey's explorations into humanity and spirituality, in order to leave behind, for us, what he found, for himself, to be universally applicable truths, for the benefit of all mankind. For this reason, he wrote this book. (Hardcover Edition) (700 pages)

The translations of both Lanfranc's and Guitmund's works make this volume an important study in the history of the development of eucharistic theology.
