The Beautiful Cure: Harnessing Your Body's Natural Defences [9781784702212]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review

SHORTLISTED FOR THE ROYAL SOCIETY SCIENCE BOOK PRIZE

Our immune system is one of the great marvels of nature - and it holds the key to human health. Here, Professor Daniel Davis charts the ground-breaking scientific quest to understand how it fights disease and enables the body to heal itself. He explains how it is affected by stress, sleep, age and our state of mind, and reveals how all of this knowledge is now unlocking a revolutionary approach to medicine and well-being.

The Beautiful Cure tells a dramatic story of detective work and discovery, of puzzles solved and of the mysteries that remain, of lives sacrificed and saved. It presents a revelatory new understanding of the human body - and what it takes to be healthy. 

`Thrilling... Reads like the best kind of adventure story' STEPHEN FRY

`Wonderful...recounts in exceptionally clear and sympathetic prose how research into the immune system has resulted in a health revolution' HENRY MARSH, New Statesman

AUTHOR: Daniel M. Davis is Professor of Immunology at the University of Manchester. His research, using super-resolution microscopy to study immune cell biology, was listed in Discover magazine as one of the top 100 breakthroughs of the year. His previous book, The Compatibility Gene, was longlisted for the 2014 Royal Society Winton Science Book Prize, shortlisted for the Society of Biology Book Prize and described by Bill Bryson in the Guardian's Books of the Year as `elegantly written and unexpectedly gripping'. He is also the author of over 120 academic papers, collectively cited over 10,000 times, including articles in Nature, Science and Scientific American.
