Anatomy professor David Bainbridge applies the science of evolutionary biology and psychology to look at women’s bodies in our ancestral past, our self-image-obsessed present, and our surgically enhanced future.Few things are as tantalizing as a woman’s curves…and yet, humans are the only mammals on earth whose females have curvy bodies. Why? And what does this unique body shape mean for us? In Curvology, researcher David Bainbridge uses his scientific know-how to get to the bottom of this anatomical mystery and to explore the social and psychological consequences of our cultural fixation with curves and fat.B
All microbes, including bacteria, viruses, and fungi, can be classified and identified by matching a few peptides known to be unique to each organism. Identifying Microbes by Mass Spectrometry Proteomics describes ways to identify microorganisms using powerful new techniques combining hardware and software and yielding highly accurate methods for detection, identification, and classification of microbes. This straightforward technology can be used to detect unknown and unsequenced microorganisms as well as microbes in complex environmental samples.T

The answer is cortisol control, a new discovery that is the missing link to effective weight loss. Breakthrough research has shown that the stress hormone cortisol is a key factor in obesity. Higher cortisol levels increase appetite, enhance fat storage and disrupt blood sugar control.
