The prevailing wisdom is that you're genetically born as one gender, that's who you are and that's the identity you should develop to fit into your culture, either a manly man or a feminine women but somewhere along the way, there are people who don't fit neatly into the gender they look like and often want to be the opposite gender. The stereotypical characteristics of women are: clinging coy emotional manipulative need other people nurturing The stereotypical characteristics of men are: emotionally childish one-dimensional competitive (with themselves and others) afraid of losing control rational horny domineering Fifty years ago or so, society had strict gender roles. Women became mothers while men went to work. It was overwhelming because everybody played by these rules.
Very simply, all the cells in the bodily organism have a special marker in them which the immune system knows are its own but everything else in the body without this special marker is considered a foreign agent, an enemy which the immune system tries to destroy in order to win this war against toxins and continue to thrive. When the immune system senses large amounts of foreign invaders, it triggers an immune response by producing antibodies which go out, fight these invaders (antigens) and try to destroy them all. When the body’s immune system is weak, it gets confused and sometimes attacks its own healthy body cells because it thinks these cells are foreign invading toxic cells so the body’s immune system is destroying itself. There are a lot of diseases like this like chronic inflammation, chronic fatigue syndrome, lupus, alopecia areata, ankylosing spondylitis, antiphospholipid antibody syndrome, autoimmune skin disorders, Cushing's syndrome, scleroderma, Sjogren's syndrome, etc.

The main causes of illness is taking in toxins through processed foods which deplete some nutrients from the body but the worst thing they do is build up in organs and other body parts to form tumors which destroy tissue and could spread as parasitic material to kill you. These poisonous cells in the tumors live off the healthy tissue thereby killing it. There are toxins everywhere like all the wireless waves around, air polluted by carbon monoxide from cars, chlorine in the water you wash your body with, the freon in refrigerators, chemical cleaning solutions on carpets, etc. The body tries to clean itself by getting rid of toxins in the form of extra mucus, fever nausea, diarrhea, headaches, cold or flu symptoms, sneezing, etc. Waste matter is excreted from the rectum through stools, from the bladder through urine, from the lungs through breath, from the pores of the skin through sweat. If there is something wrong with your expulsion system like if you’re constipated, waste stays in your body.
The digestive system uses food to sustain the body, extracting nutrients and energy from it while eliminating the rest. Food is taken in through the mouth, chewed and softened with saliva then swallowed through the throat, going down the esophagus to the stomach. It is then mixed in with hydrochloric acid and various enzymes and slowly digested. It moves through the small intestine where digestive enzymes from the liver and gallbladder continue to digest it. Then it goes into the large intestine where it is further digested and separated into useful fuel and nutrients for the body versus what is not useful which is prepared as waste for elimination. Along the way the food is moved by muscle contractions (peristalsis) while the sphincter muscles temporarily halt the movement of food between parts of the system during processing.
Within the optical field, there are several specialties. An opthamologist and optometrist are the highest grade of eye technician, doing surgery, removing cataracts, certified to use the excimer laser to cure nearsightedness, etc. One step below that is the optician, the eye technicians who takes eye tests and fits you for glasses and contact lenses among other things. Optometrists diagnose, manage, and treat basic conditions and diseases of the human eye. Their practice consists of eye examinations, diagnosis of problems, and the prescription of corrective lenses. Dispensing opticians fill the prescription that is written by an optometrist. They design, measure, fit and help select frames for their patients. An ophthalmologist is a physician who diagnoses and treats eye diseases. For the brain to interpret the information transmitted along the optic nerve, to blend the two separate images into a single image and to be able to judge distances correctly, the two eyes must work together.
Cancer is a group of more than 200 diseases each of which, though different, attack some of the body's cells. Healthy cells that make up the body's tissues grow, divide and replace themselves in an orderly way to keep the body in good repair but toxic cancerous cells destroy the body. Cancer refers to all malignant tumours caused by the abnormal growth of a body cell or a group of cells. In men, cancer is usually found in the intestines, the prostate and the lungs. In women, it occurs mostly in the breast tissues, uterus, gallbladder and thyroid. The American Cancer Society has prescribed seven signs or danger signals in general which may indicate the presence of cancer. These are: a sore that does not heal; change in bowel or bladder habits; unusual bleeding or discharge; thickening or lump in breast or elsewhere; indigestion or difficulty in swallowing; obvious change in a wart or a mole a persistent and nagging cough or hoarseness.

This book is a near comprehensive resource guide to point you in a lot of different directions that might help you in some way. If all of a sudden you get into an accident or get a serious disease, you don't have time to sift through the hundreds of health books at #610 to #619 at the library or cruise the web looking for answers some of which are a massive rip-off. I'll give you a case in point. I was on a holistic cancer website where they give about 25 pages of solid knowledge for free then I went on another one with a ten page sales pitch ending with "Only $97 and you'll get all these reports about 12 obscure holistic cancer therapies."
There are lots of medical laws with many subspecialties all the way from drug manufacturing to medical professional conduct sometimes called attitude. If a doctor treats you with a bad attitude, he or she is breaking a rule of conduct. Doctors are free from prosecution when committing medical errors in many cases as long as they disclose it because it’s a procedure necessary give doctors a feeling of freedom in practicing their craft and it’s a way for them to learn. They are free to discuss their errors in private meetings without fear of charges. This book is a basic guide to medical law. Chapter 1.
