Growing a beard will lower the risk of cancer ; keeping a pet dog (as opposed to a cat) will increase the risk of breast cancer ; to be short sighted is to be intelligent ; shaving can make you sick ; death can be cured these are just some of the 100 unthinkable theories, cures and explanations from the world of medicine contained in this fascinating book. Based on the bizarre but much respected journal Medical Hypotheses, the book describes in an accessible style the work of medical researchers and practitioners from all over the world who were encouraged to think the unthinkable and to conceive ideas well beyond the restrictive confines of their laboratories. The result is a popular science book that is often stimulating, sometimes downright bizarre, but certainly never dull. Can death really be cured? Well, in theory, yes, through the chemical preservation of the brain.

Product Description:
Unusual book
Synopsis:
'Impossible', 'unthinkable', 'blasphemous'; 'outrageous' - just about every major theory and proposed advance in medicine or science has been dismissed in one of these ways, usually just before it turned out to be correct (and sometimes after too). So, here are some more theories, taken from the well-respected journal Medical Hypotheses: "Growing a beard will lower the risk of cancer"; "short-sighted people are more intelligent"; "shaving can make you sick"; "your pet dog increases the likelihood of breast cancer (but your pet cat won't)" and of course "death can be cured". This collection describes, in a witty and accessible style, the work of medical researchers and practitioners from all over the world who were encouraged to think the 'unthinkable', and the result is an engaging, stimulating - somewhat bizarre, but certainly never dull - popular science book that will show you (some of) the future. Death Can be Cured! Well, in theory...
