Book Overview
Thorough and unique, this record focuses on developing strategies for the prevention of noninfectious diseases. Discussing a number of ailments--including, coronary heart disease, osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, osteoporosis, asthma, and varicose veins--this meticulous account utilizes chaos theory and complexity theory to form hypotheses about the causes of these nonlinear diseases and argues that medicine has previously failed in applying these theories.
