Whether planning a long weekend in Mexico or an African safari, travelers need current and practical information on protecting their health in foreign countries. Staying Healthy Abroad gives straightforward and easy-to-follow recommendations for those traveling for pleasure, study, business, or volunteer work; for short- or long-term stays; and to destinations ranging from rural areas to large cities, in both developing and industrialized nations. Observing that risk is determined less by where you go than by what you do, physician and educator Christopher Sanford provides succinct overviews and commonsense advice on how to prevent communicable diseases, malaria and other mosquito-borne illnesses, and travelers� diarrhea; avoid traffic and water accidents; and evaluate post-trip symptoms; and addresses many other concerns. His emphasis is on ailments and injuries that travelers are most likely to encounter, because �if something occurs less frequently than one-in-a-million, it probably isn�t going to happen to you.� Staying Healthy Abroad also covers concerns unique to women, men, children, LGBTQ individuals, and travelers with chronic illnesses. International travel can be a business requirement, a study-abroad opportunity, an exciting adventure, or a quick getaway outside the normal routine. The majority of health and safety risks for travelers can be avoided with sensible pre-travel precautions, such as immunizations, and attention to safe behavior while away. From altitude sickness to Zika virus, the clear and concise information in Staying Healthy Abroad helps make global travel less stressful and more enjoyable.

Dr. Bryce Wylde, one of Canada's most popular and respected health care practitioners, gives us individualized step-by-step treatment plans to fight disease and stay healthy. In The Antioxidant Prescription, homeopathic doctor and nutritionist Bryce Wylde addresses what science has discovered to be the true underlying cause of disease: free radicals. These deadly little molecules have many causes, from injury and stress to environmental toxins, genetic predisposition and even the natural by-products of your body's metabolism. Free radicals cause oxidation, a process that damages cells and can lead to rapid aging, heart disease, Alzheimer's and even cancer. We all make free radicals. Some people, however, produce them at alarming levels, and those who do are almost certain to battle disease and live shorter, unhealthier lives. Luckily, free radical damage can be avoided. Antioxidants stop free radicals form damaging other cells in your body and protect you against disease. With The Antioxidant Prescription, Dr. Wylde enables you to recognize the warning signs of free radical damage and make an accurate assessment of your body's free radical load. He'll introduce you to the medical testing available to determine whether you will benefit from high dose antioxidant therapy as well as the new research around mind over health matters. With his help, you will be able to design and implement a customized antioxidant plan based on your age, lifestyle, environment, stress levels and medical history. As always, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. With The Antioxidant Prescription you'll be equipped with tools to take preventive action against conditions that lurk within your genetic code. This book is the perfect prescription for lasting health. From the Hardcover edition.

The Side Effects of Drugs Annual was first published in 1977. It has been published continuously since then, as a yearly update to the encyclopaedic volume Meyler's Side Effects of Drugs. Each new Annual provides clinicians and medical investigators with a reliable and critical yearly survey of new data and trends in the area of Adverse Drug Reactions and Interactions. An international team of specialists have contributed to the Annuals by selecting from each year's publications all that is truly new and informative, by critically interpreting it, and by pointing out whatever is misleading. The use of the book is enhanced by separate indexes, allowing the reader to enter the text via the drug name, adverse effect, or drug interaction. Special features of the Annuals are the Side Effects of Drugs Essay, usually written by a guest author, and the special reviews: short articles, within the different chapters, that give extra attention to topics of current interest. The Essay in Annual 27 is entitled 'The General Practice Research Database' (by Dr. H. Jick) and there is a Historical Essay entitled 'Louis Lewin - Meyler's Predecessor' (by Dr. J.K. Aronson). The special reviews in this volume include, among others: The effects of NSAIDs on blood pressure Risks of inhaled corticosteroids in children Leukotriene receptor antagonists and Churg-Strauss syndrome Amiodarone and thyroid disease Surveillance of adverse events following immunization Smallpox vaccination Safety aspects of folic acid Inhibitors of topoisomerase I and topoisomerase II Liver damage from kava kava
