"According to veterinarian and journalist Mark Walters, we are contributing to--if not overtly causing--some of the scariest epidemics of our time. Through human stories and cutting-edge science, Walters explores the origins of seven diseases: Mad Cow Disease, HIV/AIDS, Salmonella DT104, Lyme Disease, Hantavirus, West Nile, and new strains of flu. He shows that they originate from manipulation of the environment, from emitting carbon and clear-cutting forests to feeding naturally herbivorous cows "recycled animal protein." Readers will both learn how today's plagues first developed and discover patterns that could help prevent the diseases of tomorrow"--Provided by publisher.
