Why we get sick : the new science of Darwinian medicine by Randolph M Nesse ( Book )
21 editions published between 1994 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 1,246 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The authors state the case that illness and disorder are part of an evolutionary reaction by the human body, and in some cases, they may be beneficial to the current physical or psychological state of the ill person. Examples include morning sickness as a control over the nutritional needs of the pregnant woman, and fever as a means to regulate body temperature to fight off infection. While the authors do not claim that medical treatment should be withheld, understanding the underlying causes of some medical illness or disorders may be as important as typical medical treatment

Changing Lives of Older Couples (CLOC) A Study of Spousal Bereavement in the Detroit Area, 1987-1993 by Randolph M Nesse ( )
2 editions published in 2003 in No Linguistic content and English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Changing Lives of Older Couples (CLOC) is a large multi-wave prospective study of spousal bereavement. Face-to-face baseline interviews with married older adults in the Detroit, Michigan standardized metropolitan statistical area (SMSA) were conducted between June 1987 and April 1988, and follow-up interviews were conducted at six months (Wave 1), 18 months (Wave 2), and 48 months (Wave 3) after a spouse's death. Each widowed person was assigned a same-age, same-sex, same-race matched control from the baseline sample. Controls were interviewed again at each of the three follow-ups as well. Spousal loss was monitored using state-provided monthly death records and through daily obituaries from local area newspapers. The National Death Index (NDI) and direct ascertainment of death certificates were used to confirm all deaths. The primary strength of the CLOC study is its ability to measure spousal bereavement quantitatively. For this purpose a global grief scale and six grief subscales, unique to the CLOC study, were prepared. Depression was measured for all respondents with conceptualizations of depression at each wave, as well as major depressive episodes according to DSM-III-R criteria. Other survey questions focused on the social, psychological, and physical functioning of older adults (e.g., demographic, financial, housing, life events, social support, work and activities, marriage and family, religion, health and well-being). For a portion of the respondents (n = 432) in what was referred to as the MacBat study, various biomedical indicators (motor and cognitive, physiological, endocrinological and biochemical) were measured as well. The CLOC study has been subset into four primary datasets. The core, or Complete, dataset (Part 1) contains all available variables from all four waves of the study (Baseline, W1, W2, W3) for the entire sample of 1,532 persons (excludi...

Evolution and origins of disease by Randolph M Nesse ( )
2 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Why do noses run? Why do lungs cough? Why are some diseases deadlier than others. Germs and weaknesses of the body may be the immediate causes of illness, but they don't explain why sickness takes the form that it does. Concepts from evolutionary biology can, however, and could help unify the medicinal sciences
