review Deadly Outbreaks Alexandra M. Levitt ¶ 0 characters Deadly Outbreaks Read & Download ï 0 S of a special group of intrepid individuals who investigate these outbreaks around the world and figure out how to stop them Part homicide detective part physician these medical investigators must view the problem from every angle exhausting every possible source of contamination Any data gathered in the field must be stripped of human sorrows and carefully analyzed into hard statisticsAuthor Dr Alexandra Levitt is an expert on emerging diseases and other public health threats. Explores the medical mysteries behind identifying the avian flu Legionnaire s Disease the hantavirus in New Mexico and several other some still unsolved disease outbreaks Sort of like Bones and CSI in real life It s scary how many brilliant people in differing fields need to work together to discover some of the causalities Interesting book but I would have liked science and victim stories and less background on the scientists

review Deadly Outbreaks Alexandra M. Levitt ¶ 0 characters Deadly Outbreaks Read & Download ï 0 Despite advances in health care infectious microbes continue to be a formidable adversary to scientists and doctors Vaccines and antibiotics the mainstays of modern medicine have not been able to conuer infectious microbes because of their amazing ability to adapt evolve and spread to new places Terrorism aside one of the greatest dangers from infectious disease we face today is from a massive outbreak of drug resistant microbes Deadly Outbreaks recounts the scientific adventure. I have always really enjoyed medical books and this is a pretty good one I found it refreshing that Dr Levitt did such a good job showcasing the scientists that worked so hard to improve public health It was nice to see these people get some credit for their work Also it was very interesting to see some of the less exotic cases of disease outbreaks in America it really drives home the point that many of these outbreaks are caused by modern human intervention on the environment Overall though the style writing is a little clunky but that is the be expected Alexandra Levitt is a doctor not a writer In addition to this book I would recommend David uammen s Spillover David uammen is a great medical writer and fans of this book should check his out as well
