Survival of the Sickest: A Medical Maverick Discovers Why We Need Disease by Sharon Moalem

Was diabetes evolutions response to the last Ice Age? Did a deadly genetic disease help our ancestors survive the bubonic plagues of Europe? Will a visit to the tanning salon help lower your cholesterol? Why do we age? Why are some people immune to HIV? Can your genes be turned on -- or off?

Dr. Sharon Moalem turns our current understanding of illness on its head and challenges us to fundamentally change the way we think about our bodies, our health, and our relationship to just about every other living thing on earth, from plants and animals to insects and bacteria.

Through a fresh and engaging examination of our evolutionary history, Dr. Moalem reveals how many of the conditions that are diseases today actually gave our ancestors a leg up in the survival sweepstakes. When the option is a long life with a disease or a short one without it, evolution opts for disease almost every time.

Everything from the climate our ancestors lived in to the crops they planted and ate to their beverage of choice can be seen in our genetic inheritance. But Survival of the Sickest doesnt stop there. It goes on to demonstrate just how little modern medicine really understands about human health, and offers a new way of thinking that can help all of us live longer, healthier lives..

Sharon Moalem — Survival of the Sickest Audiobook. This was a superb book for any type of healthcare nonprofessional like me in understanding what the physiology, history, philosophy, and scientific research of human medication has to do with. For me it unscrambled the complication about where we are at in the field of medicine. All of us get sick and all of us like understanding. A really enlightening read. I discovered a great deal particularly concerning hereditary scientific research. Genetic research study is currently in vogue today specifically in cancer cells study.
