Re: Whats in Your Genes? Human Threads Linking Genetics and Genealogy eBook
In this seventh full length book, the author brings to the reader the reasons for finding your ancestors by linking the human threads of your genes and your genetics. The theme of the first part of the book discloses how our ancestors are important today with a focus on the risks and benefits in our modern day health care system.
Vast information is now available for individuals to research and learn about their genetic heritage on the internet. With the knowledge of how genes, genomics, and genealogy are intertwined into personalized medicine may appear before you are ready. Learn what you can do when things go wrong with the poor practice of medicine by many of the physicians in our country. Legal issues in medicine are addressed with an up to date interview by a leading personal injury attorney which will help you solve any issues you have on the table with the complaints with treatment of your illnesses or injuries
There are many common diseases and conditions besides heart disease that are explained with any hereditary influence including how nutrition and aging effect disease. Supplements and vitamins are generally not prescriptive but many physicians ask you to name all medications and supplements as there are problems associated with their interactions. There are many adverse events from treatments and drugs, namely antibiotic issues and infection control with your DNA mutations. The FDA brings to the attention of medical professionals with daily recalls of drugs and medical devices. The outlook for hospital and surgical adverse events is also at the forefront of problems within our American system of health care.
There is a price for surviving the issue of cancer and the usual treatments using chemotherapy and radiation almost exclusively in the United States; other global efforts are discussed bringing the reader to question why our system of clinical trials is not using exclusively targeted therapy which would reduce the adversities of chemotherapy (namely the long term effects of Neuropathy), for example IV Cisplatin, that often kills cancerous tissues and tumors but three times as much of our good tissues leaving patients with toxicity that may never go away leaving the victims as survivors with nerve and tissue damage in the feet, legs and ears.
Our progress in the health care system in America today is based on the not new, but the newly discovered or new understanding of cell biology of humans with new therapies based on genetics. By understanding biomarkers and mutations in our genes, some inherited but some due to the environment (epigenetics), the reader will see the possibilities and the benefits of medical treatments based on your genetic testing.
The closing chapters explain the authors four brushes with death and disfigurement from adverse reactions to medical treatment in her story of survival. Other survivor stories are related throughout the book with their adverse reactions to treatment, some good .and some for ill. The author, in her research quest for the answers of how and why errors were made in these survivors stories, you can learn how to find from these experiences the right medical help with words of wisdom and lessons learned from the medical aspects of the hazards of health care in America.
