Using cutting-edge technology, take a close-up look at the surprising beauty of some of our deadliest diseases--and the medicines that treat them.
What do human cells look like when suffering from Alzheimer's, osteoporosis, or HIV? With the help of powerful microscopes and electron micrographs, this stunning book presents fascinating images of various diseases. They range from the most lethal, like cancer and Ebola, to relatively minor ailments, including Staphylococcus bacteria and dental plaque. The photos, which include dazzling images of the crystals, powders, and potions that we use to cure ourselves, are as beautiful as any artwork and help us better understand the science of illness.
