Conhecimento Comum



This book is from 2009 (and perhaps there are updated editions, but my library's was acquired in 2009 so it's contemporary to that period) and... it shows, with the early focus on epigenetics (still relevant, but maybe not the hot topic it was over a decade ago).

Thing is, these pop doctors decide to use that as an excuse to remind you that EVERYTHING you do can influence not only your baby, but your baby's baby in the future etc. even though advice wasn't concrete on how exactly you might be methylating your strands. I should've remembered that the other books in this line are on the dieting/self-improvement end of things, so that shouldn't surprise me.

I do like that this book was organized by topic/system, rather than chronological. Was it just me, or did all the people in illustrations have elf ears? almost a political cartoon style of diagram...

The section on vaccination tried to Both Sides it (as they mentioned the doctor author team was divided), with pro-science accurately saying they felt that showing anti-vax positions they were accidentally legitimizing it as a point of view. Oz, unsurprisingly, delayed vaccination for his kids in the individual author note, but his background is in heart surgery, not obstetrics/pediatrics.

Would not recommend, though if you're curious absolutely more of a library read like what I did.

Great book to read and use as a reference. It is very easy to follow and understand. I recommend it for everyone. Dr. Oz doesn't suggest anything radical, mostly common sense.

The authors do a nice job of explaining physiology, anatomy, and pathology in understandable language. They add humor throughout the book to make reading the material more fun and interesting. I learned some and especially liked some of the analogies and comics. The book is a little dated now but still very useful. I strongly recommend this book.
