Bitten: Bites and Stings from Around the World
Pamela Nagami (au)
Snake bites cause 40,000 deaths each year! 700 million people annually contract disease from mosquito bites! Snakes, spiders, crocodiles, jellyfish, cats, dogs and even humans, nearly every creature that can sting or bite appears in this book. All inflict pain, transmit a host of nasty diseases or worse -- from the instant death of the cone snail’s sting to the lingering agony of the parasite Leishmania, which lives in mucus and can collapse the nose. Using reports from medical journals and anecdotes from her career, Nagami presents a fascinating history of some of the most critical cases and how the anti-venoms and cures were found. “A frighteningly vivid and compulsively readable book full of potentially life-saving facts.”
