Increasingly, pharmaceuticals are available as the solutions to a wide range of human health problems and health risks, minor and major. This book portrays how pharmaceutical use is, at once, a solution to, and a difficulty for, everyday life. Exploring lived experiences of people at different stages of the life course and from different countries around the world, this collection highlights the benefits as well as the challenges of using medicines on an everyday basis. It raises questions about the expectations associated with the use of medications, the uncertainty about a condition or about the duration of a medicine regimen for it, the need to negotiate the stigma associated with a condition or a type of medicine, the need to access and pay for medicines and the need to schedule medicine use appropriately, and the need to manage medicines’ effects and side effects. The chapters include original empirical research, literature review and theoretical analysis, and convey the sociological and phenomenological complexity of ‘living pharmaceutical lives’. This book is of interest to all those studying and researching social pharmacy and the sociology of health and illness.

Weight stigma is so pervasive in our culture that it is often unnoticed, along with the harm that it causes. Health care is rife with anti-fat bias and discrimination against fat people, which compromises care and influences the training of new practitioners. This book explores how this happens and how we can change it. This interdisciplinary volume is grounded in a framework that challenges the dominant discourse that health in fat individuals must be improved through weight loss. The first part explores the negative impacts of bias, discrimination, and other harms by health care providers against fat individuals. The second part addresses how we can ‘fatten’ pedagogy for current and future health care providers, discussing how we can address anti-fat bias in education for health professionals and how alternative frameworks, such as Health at Every Size, can be successfully incorporated into training so that health outcomes for fat people improve. Examining what works and what fails in teaching health care providers to truly care for the health of fat individuals without further stigmatizing them or harming them, this book is for scholars and practitioners with an interest in fat studies and health education from a range of backgrounds, including medicine, nursing, social work, nutrition, physiotherapy, psychology, sociology, education and gender studies.

The questions addressed in the book revolve around the public nature of health as an asset and the rights associated with it, by drawing attention to sociology’s role in shedding light on current dynamics and understanding how they may change in the future. In the field of public health, significant empirical evidence points not only to the outcomes, clinical and otherwise, that extensive information can produce, but also to the urgent need to rethink the far from straightforward relationship between having this information and the ability to put it to effective use in tackling the problems it relates to. The book is intended for a broad audience of university researchers and students, particularly those involved in upper-level sociology and social policy programs. It will also be of interest to health care and social work policy-makers and practitioners who wish to gain a more detailed grasp of the dynamics of health care in order to approach its processes critically and improve their outcomes.

Diabetes is among the fastest growing diseases in the world. In the U.S. 1 in 3 adults over age 20 has high blood sugar and 1 in 4 adults over age 65 is fully diabetic. Yet, nearly every single person could avoid high blood and diabetes if they understood its real causes and Eat, Chew, Live provides exactly the new science & powerful inspiration to help people prevent this serious disease from altering their lives ”without drugs. Eat, Chew, Live offers a revolutionary new science-based explanation of what really happens in the body to cause high blood sugar. While traditional medicine blames the condition on insulin resistance, Dr. Poothullil disagrees, offering systematic proof of a far better biological explanation for it. According to him, diabetes is not a hormonal disease; in fact, he demonstrates that insulin resistance is not even logical. Instead, high blood sugar and diabetes are the result of over consumption, especially of grain-based carbohydrates that cause a normal bodily metabolism--cells burning fatty acids rather than glucose--to go haywire. When people understand this insight, everything about preventing high blood sugar and diabetes becomes clear. Eat, Chew, Live goes on to present three other revolutionary ideas to help people get in tune with their body's need for nutrition, their hunger and satisfaction signals, and the causes of their overeating. Dr. Poothullil's offers insightful and persuasive advice about why avoiding complex carbohydrates even whole grain and gluten free -- is the key to losing weight and preventing high blood sugar. He goes on to teach readers how to eat mindfully, chewing fully to enjoy and savor food. Many readers report that the book helped them lose weight, get in touch with their body, and reduce their diabetes medications significantly. Eat, Chew, Live is unlike other books on diabetes, as nearly every one accepts insulin resistance as the cause. Dr. Poothullil theory is a medically sound new approach to explaining high blood sugar and the implications are enormous for the entire medical approach to treating high blood sugar with medications rather than teaching people how to eat what they enjoy to lower blood sugar. Eat, Chew, Live may be one of the most important health books of the decade, as its 4 revolutionary ideas will save many lives.

According to publically released data [CLI XX], live cell assays are still an essential aspect of the pharmaceutical industry. In the sector of high throughput screening alone, live cell assays now constitute 50% of total use.

Cell assays include all methods of measurements on living cells. Confined for a long time to research laboratories, these emerging methods have, in recent years, found industrial applications that are increasingly varied and, from now on, regulatory. Based on the recent explosion of knowledge in cell biology, the measurement of living cells represents a new class of industry-oriented research tests, the applications of which continue to multiply (pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, environment, etc.). Cellular tests are now being positioned as new tools at the interface between chemical methods, which are often obsolete and not very informative, and methods using animal models, which are expensive, do not fit with human data and are widely discussed from an ethical perspective. Finally, the development of cell assays is currently being strengthened by their being put into regulatory application, particularly in Europe through the REACH (Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals) and cosmetic directives.
