Inside This Book (Learn More)
First Sentence
The distribution of health and disease in human populations reflects where people live, how they live, what they eat, the work they do, the air they breathe and the water they drink, their interconnectedness with others, the beliefs they hold about health and disease, and the organization and quality of health care available to them. Read the first page

Format:Hardcover
Incorrectly categorizes ME ("CFS"), Fibromyalgia and Lyme Disease as somatization. Pls see ME International Consensus Criteria, 2011, for accurate information.

from p.7:
"Chronic brucellosis is not a disease, but a pattern of illness behavior, triggered by an acute infection in a psychologically predisposed individual, an illness pattern reinforced by medical labeling that crystallizes distress by sanctioning it as a biological entity.

With chronic brucellosis largely controlled by public health measures, it disappeared from the medical scene in the USA. But it was soon replaced by new idioms of distress: chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia and chronic Lyme disease."
