SURVIVAL OF THE SICKEST A Medical Maverick Discovers Why We Need Disease

by | Read by Eric Conger

Contemporary Culture • 7 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2007

Learn how wearing sun block could raise your cholesterol and diabetes could protect you from extreme cold. Mutation, genetic transmission, and survival of the fittest form the foundation of evolutionary law, and Sharon Moalem explains how certain genetic disease states might promote continued existence. Narrator Eric Conger's brisk pace keeps the facts coming and the interest level high, but he never sounds hurried or mumbles a word. He doesn't break his rhythm with annoying pauses for quoted material or struggle with the plethora of scientific terms. The combination of an excellent reader and well-informed writers provides information that brings the inquisitive mind up to date on genetics that apply to our everyday lives.
