'The Potbelly Syndrome: How Common Germs Cause Obesity, Diabetes, and Heart Disease' presents a new conclusion regarding a metabolic disorder that affects at least one third of adults in industrialized countries. Co-authors Russell Farris (a retired artificial-intelligence researcher who, after sustaining a heart attack in 1998, began studying hart disease and related illnesses) and scientist, physician, and clinical teacher Per Marin have discovered that PBS (potbelly syndrome) is not caused by poor eating and exercise habits, instead it is caused by chronic infections, which lead to a pattern of slight, long-term excess of cortisol, a stress hormone. The effects of the excess cortisol can lead to blocked arteries, Type 2 diabetes, and raised cholesterol, insulin, and blood sugars. For those who suffer from PBS and are unable to correct their obesity through the usual prescribed methods of diet and exercise, 'The Potbelly Syndrome' offers additional insight about the cause and possible approaches to correct the syndrome and lead to improved health. Filled with graphs, illustrations, examples, and practical information, 'The Potbelly Syndrome' may lead to a rethinking of one of the most common yet challenging health conditions. A welcome addition to both academic and community library Health & Medicine collections, 'The Potbelly Syndrome' is directly accessible to the non-specialist general reader, and has substantial value and appeal to health professionals as well.

Ty...<p>I woke to so many noises. Ghost had a suitcase packed and was learning how to get the handle to come up. Ea was cooking fish and Wal was stuffing open bandaids in a bag. Who did i help? Ghost. Wal would make me mad and I don't know how to cook fish. "What's up sleepin' beauty?" He asked me. I turned around and walked to Wal. She immidiatly jumped away. I sighed and turned into a human again. She relaxed. "What are you doing?", I asked her doughtful id get an answer."Packing band-aids like Ghost said!" She exclaimed. "Wal, you are so stu.pid, I could punt you to Alaska, and you wouldent know the difference!!",I told her. "Good morning to you too British breath!"she said rudley. I like my accent. I think its different and really, they're the ones who have the accent! So, after that I went to see Ea. And she says,"Hey! Ty get me the syrup!" My eyes widened. "Your putting syrup on fish?!" I exclaimed. "Thats gross!" Ea took offence to that. She turned and dribbled a little syrup on three, then dumped the rest of the bottle on the forth. "Oops!",she said snootily. She handed the fish to me on a plate. "Breackfast!" She called to the others. Everybody grabed one and passed it to Wal one at a time. As she cut Ghosts I dropped my fish on the ground. "Oops!", I said mockingly to Ea. "Well", she said, "thats a shame caus your not getting any more untill lunch." "And we are walking.", she added with a smirk.Wall was finished by then. I watchedthem eat. It made me really hungry. When they were done, Wal turned into a human and we started walking to the city. Ghost knew the rought like the back of his hand.Was this review helpful?
