Negli ultimi decenni si è dedicata un'attenzione crescente agli effetti negativi dell'inquinamento e dell'impiego di sostanze nocive nei processi di produzione industriale. L'esposizione ai metalli pesanti tocca non solo l'uomo, ma tutto ciò che lo circonda. L'accumulo di essi nel corpo umano è spesso causa di disfunzioni a carico di vari organi, che possono degenerare in patologie talvolta anche molto gravi. Naturalmente non possiamo vivere sotto una campana di vetro, ma possiamo cercare di limitare il danno, riducendo l'esposizione e adottando alcune semplici regole capaci di difenderci da questi killer insidiosi e silenti. Questo manuale, rivolto a tutti coloro che vogliono migliorare la qualità della propria vita, individua le varie fonti di intossicazione, indica le specifiche alimentari e fitoterapiche utili per disintossicarsi, ed è completato da tre dizionari di agevole consultazione.

In the virtual future, you must organize to survive At any hour of the day or night, millions of people around the globe are engrossed in multiplayer online games, questing and battling to win virtual "gold," jewels, and precious artifacts. Meanwhile, others seek to exploit this vast shadow economy, running electronic sweatshops in the world's poorest countries, where countless "gold farmers," bound to their work by abusive contracts and physical threats, harvest virtual treasure for their employers to sell to First World gamers who are willing to spend real money to skip straight to higher-level gameplay. Mala is a brilliant 15-year-old from rural India whose leadership skills in virtual combat have earned her the title of "General Robotwalla." In Shenzen, heart of China's industrial boom, Matthew is defying his former bosses to build his own successful gold-farming team. Leonard, who calls himself Wei-Dong, lives in Southern California, but spends his nights fighting virtual battles alongside his buddies in Asia, a world away. All of these young people, and more, will become entangled with the mysterious young woman called Big Sister Nor, who will use her experience, her knowledge of history, and her connections with real-world organizers to build them into a movement that can challenge the status quo. The ruthless forces arrayed against them are willing to use any means to protect their power—including blackmail, extortion, infiltration, violence, and even murder. To survive, Big Sister's people must out-think the system. This will lead them to devise a plan to crash the economy of every virtual world at once—a Ponzi scheme combined with a brilliant hack that ends up being the biggest, funnest game of all. Imbued with the same lively, subversive spirit and thrilling storytelling that made LITTLE BROTHER an international sensation, FOR THE WIN is a prophetic and inspiring call-to-arms for a new generation At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.

Chelation therapy, based on the intravenous infusion of EDTA, is a highly effective treatment for atherosclerotic cardiovasular disease. Saftey and effectivenss are well documented in clinical studies, all of which to date are supportive of this therapy, and there are no studies showing lack of effectiveness. A strong case is made for the use of this safe, efficacious, and inexpensive therapy before resorting to surgery and other risky and invasive treatments. In this newly revised and extensively updated edition of what has come to be regarded as the definitive textbook on the subject, renowned chelation expert Elmer M. Cranton, M.D., presents the work of the world's leading experts in chelation therapy. "This therapy has been proven effective over and over again in clinical practice," says Dr. Cranton. "More than one million patients have recieved more than twenty million infusions with no serious or lasting adverse effects." In his foreword, Nobel Prize winner Dr. Linus Pauling states, "EDTA chelation therapy makes good sense to me as a chemist and medical researcher. It has a rational scientific basis, and the evidence for clinical benefit seems to be quite strong." Here in a single volume you will learn everything you need to know to responsibly administer and advocate chelation therapy. You will find a coherent scientific rationale, clinical trials demonstating effectiveness, guidelines for saftey, detailed protocols for administration, and techniques for pre- and post-treatment laboratory evalutaion.

"Heidi Strengell shows that by tapping into the wellsprings of the gothic to reveal contemporary phobias, Stephen King invokes the abnormal and repressed sexuality of the vampire, the hubris of Frankenstein, the split identity of the werewolf, the domestic melodrama of the ghost tale. Drawing on myths and fairy tales, he creates characters who, like the heroic Roland the Gunslinger and the villainous Randall Flagg, may either reinforce or subvert the reader's childlike faith in society. And in a manner of the naturalist tradition, he reinforces a tension between the free will of the individual and the daunting hand of fate."--Jacket.
