Inhaltsangabe

From tuberculosis to bird flu and HIV to coronavirus, these infectious diseases share a common origin story: human interaction with animals. Otherwise known as zoonotic diseases for their passage from animals to humans, these pathogens - both preexisting ones and those newly identified - emerge and reemerge throughout history, sparking epidemics and pandemics that have resulted in millions of deaths around the world.

How did these diseases come about? And what - if anything - can we do to stop them and their fatal march into our countries, our homes and our bodies? In How to Survive a Pandemic, Dr Michael Greger, Physician and internationally recognised expert on public health issues, delves into the origins of some of the deadliest pathogens the world has ever seen. Tracing their evolution from the past until today, Dr Greger spotlights emerging flu and coronaviruses as he examines where these pathogens originated, as well as the underlying conditions and significant human role that have exacerbated their lethal influence to large and even global levels.

As the world grapples with the devastating impact of the novel coronavirus 2019, Dr Greger reveals not only what we can do to protect ourselves and our loved ones during a pandemic, but also what human society must rectify to reduce the likelihood of even worse catastrophes in the future.

How to Create a Pandemic

"How to Create a Pandemic" might have been a more appropriate title for this audio book as it is not so much about how individuals can shelter from an epidemic and more about how industrial livestock farming has created the conditions for ever more pandemics.

Terrific!

Thank you so much for this excellent, well-researched and easy to read work on pandemics, their origins and course, and how to manage and prepare not just for the next wave of Covid 19. A must-read!
