More than genes : what science can tell us about toxic chemicals, development, and the risk to our children by D. P Agin( Book )

10 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 862 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Biologist Dan Agin marshals new scientific evidence to argue that the fetal environment can be just as crucial as genetic hard-wiring or even later environment in determining our intelligence and behavior. Stress during pregnancy, for example, puts children at far greater risk of anxiety disorders. Nutritional deprivation during early fetal development may elevate the risk of late onset schizophrenia. And exposure to a whole host of environmental toxins, especially lead, as well as maternal use of alcohol, tobacco or drugs can have impacts ranging from mild cognitive impairment to ADHD, autism, schizophrenia, and other mental disorders. Agin argues that differences in IQ among ethnic and socioeconomic groups are far more attributable to higher levels of stress and chemical toxicity in inner cities--which compromise the health of the fetus--than to genetics. The good news is that there are ways to protect fetal development.--From publisher description
Foundations of mathematical biology by Robert Rosen( Book )

4 editions published between 1972 and 1973 in English and held by 536 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Foundations of Mathematical Biology, Volume 1, Subcellular Systems, provides an introduction the place of mathematical biology in relation to the other biological, physical, and organizational sciences. It discusses the use of mathematical tools and techniques to solve biological problems. The book contains four chapters and begins with a discussion of the nature of hierarchical control in living matter. This is followed by a chapter on chemical kinetics and enzyme kinetics, covering the physicomathematical principles, models, and approximations underlying transition-state theory and the
Junk science : how politicians, corporations, and other hucksters betray us by D. P Agin( Book )

5 editions published between 2006 and 2013 in English and held by 429 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

During the next thirty years, the American public will suffer from a rampage against reason by special interests in government, commerce, and the faith industry, and the rampage has already begun. In Junk science, Dan Agin offers a response: a stinging condemnation of the egregious and constant warping of science for ideological gain. In this provocative, wide-ranging, and hard-hitting book, Agin argues from the center that we will pay a heavy price for the follies of people who consciously twist the public's understanding of the real world. In an entertaining but frank tone, Agin separates fact from conveniently "scientific" fiction and exposes the data faking, reality ignoring, fear mongering, and outright lying that contribute to intentionally manufactured public ignorance. Many factions twist scientific data to maintain riches and power, and Agin outs them all in sections like these: "Buyer beware" (genetically modified foods, aging, and tobacco companies), "Medical follies" (chiropractics, health care, talk therapy), "Poison and bombs in the greenhouse" (pollution, warfare, global warming), "Religion, embryos, and cloning", and "Genes, behavior, and race". We already pay a heavy price for many groups' conscious manipulation of the public's understanding of science, and Junk science arms us with understanding, cutting through the fabric of lies and setting the record straight
