• « UN ANTIDOTE PUISSANT AU MYTHE DU SEXE FAIBLE. »
    The Guardian
      Les faits sont là : les femmes vivent plus longtemps. Elles sont capables de discerner plus de couleurs. Elles combattent mieux la maladie ou la famine. Bref, elles sont plus fortes que les hommes à tous les stades de leur vie. Mais pourquoi ?
    Pour répondre, Sharon Moalem, médecin et chercheur expert en génétique, utilise ici ses propres expériences médicales (soigner des bébés prématurés ; étudier
    des cas de cancer ; sauver des enfants séropositifs en Thaïlande...) et explore comment dans chaque cas, les êtres de sexe féminin s'en sortent mieux. La réponse serait dans notre système génétique : la présence de deux chromosomes X offrirait un puissant avantage de survie.
    Accessible et vivant, un livre passionnant qui nous ouvre les yeux sur une découverte scientifique révolutionnaire.

  • A groundbreaking book that will transform how we understand ourselves and our families by revealing that everything we thought we knew about genetics is wrong:

    * Your genes are not fixed;
    * the traits you inherit aren't unalterable;
    * the way you behave can affect how these genes are passed down to your children.

    Your experiences, no matter how seemingly inconsequential - from bullies to crushes to what you eat for dinner - have all left an indelible mark within you. And more importantly, within your genes.

    We're taught that we don't have much of a choice in the matter of what we get or what we give, because our genetic legacy was fixed when our parents conceived us. But that's all wrong. Our genes are constantly on the move, some are turning on while others are turning off, all in response to what you're doing, what you're seeing, and what you're feeling. And all of those things can be changed, which means we can change. Genetically.

    INHERITANCE is a guidebook for that change. No longer do we have to settle for what we've been given. We can write our own story.

  • In this groundbreaking and absorbing book Dr. Sharon Moalem, delves back into the evolution of man to offer a radical perspective on survival, the human body, and our understanding of disease. Survival of the Sickest will change the way you think about your body.
