The body machine
How much do you really know about your body? Do you understand the ways in which it develops and functions? Do you know all the things that can go wrong with it and why they do? Have you the most up-to-date information on medical treatments for bodies not working as they should?
The Body Machine is a completely current report of everything science knows about the body, from why we need sleep to what kinds of research doctors are doing on the control of chronic pain, from what makes hair turn grey to how human fertility may be significantly improved in the years to come.
