Harrowing headlines in the international media of the so-called flesh-eating bacteria strike fear in millions, especially when it attacks healthy, vibrant people like Aimee Copeland, who lost both hands, her left leg and right foot after she contracted the disease from a fall from a zip line. But despite the public’s fascination with this horrific infection, most people do not know the facts. Known in the medical community as necrotizing fasciitis or NF, the flesh-eating bacteria is often caused by the same bacterium that causes strep throat. Once set loose in the body, NF rapidly destroys tissue – sometimes at the rate of an inch per hour.

NF is the perfect storm of medical emergencies – surreptitious symptoms that mask themselves like a wolf in sheep’s clothing, with excruciating pain as the toxic bacteria tear lightning fast through the subcutaneous tissues, destroying everything in its wake. Amputation of limbs or death is common – sometimes overnight. And no one is safe. Everyone is at risk from newborns to the elderly. What’s more, NF is being caused increasingly by bacteria abundant in warm ocean waters, a microscopic monster called Vibrio Vulnificus, as well as by MRSA, an antibiotic-resistant threat that kills nearly 20,000 every year in the U.S. alone, and which has world leaders extremely alarmed.

Non-Fiction Medical – Defy Your DNA

Defy Your DNADefy Your DNA
How the New Gene Patch Personalized Medicines Will Help You Overcome Your Greatest Health Challenges
By Dr. Stephen B. Shrewsbury
Publisher: 10 Finger Press
ISBN: 978-1933174860
ASIN: B00D99V2R4
Pages: 244
Genre: Non-Fiction Medical
Formats available for review: print, pdf, kindle

Defy Your DNA is a book about a new type of medicine. Oligonucleotides (“gene patches”) are tiny snippets of synthetic DNA. With them we can harness a natural process (of alternative splicing) to fool the cell into making a missing protein. Without that protein, a lethal rare disease may occur. 1 in 10 citizens has a rare disease. Previously most of these “rare diseases” have been untreatable – but these gene patches bring hope at last to patients with these diseases. But that is only one of the ways these gene patches can work. And gene patches are only one of several amazing advances that are coming (first was approved in 2013 in the US) and that herald the Golden Age of Medicine!
