MAYA: Fighting Infections Saving Lives

Notion Press
Free sample

What can be more frightening than watching a child, some one you love or you in pain and distress after developing unfamiliar symptoms? You don’t know whether it is serious enough to rush to the hospital or seek professional help. Very often you are ridiculed for making a mountain out of a mole-hole. On the other hand, if you did not rush the patient for emergency care, you may very often be blamed for delay resulting in disastrous consequences. Dr. Maya details in an easy to understand, alphabetically arranged manner, a list of commonly seen symptoms, and what they indicate. You can also download our App, register and find information 24/7, 365 days. This is meant as a home guide to be referred by the patient or his family, to decide on the gravity of an ailment, and what needs to be done. The use of this tool will keep out from hospitals those suffering from minor illnesses, and save them time and cost of consultation and cross infections while ensuring timely care for the seriously ill.

About the author

Kadiyali M Srivatsa graduated from Bangalore Medical College, and thereafter went to the UK, where he is working as a specialist in pediatric intensive and critical care medicine. During his career spanning almost thirty years, he has been sharing the knowledge, experience and diagnostic skills he acquired from great teachers with medical students, junior doctors and nurses. His interest in medicine, diagnosis and management of acute illnesses started from early childhood, when at the age of six, he cured himself of an attack of Malaria, which was misdiagnosed as typhoid and was being treated as such. Having understood the practical realities, he does not believe in the theoretical idealism of inventing new antibiotics or tests to fight infections. He invented a simple tool “MAYA” and set up a company 7i Med LTD to integrate this innovation with advances in communication technology. Dr Maya will help doctors to initially identify individuals with infections and isolate them to help avert epidemics and Pandamics in the future. “Dr. Maya” is the only practical and sensible method to prevent antibiotic resistance and emerging infections that threaten our profession and our very existance.

In The Big Fat Surprise, investigative journalist Nina Teicholz reveals the unthinkable: that everything we thought we knew about dietary fat is wrong. She documents how the low-fat nutrition advice of the past sixty years has amounted to a vast uncontrolled experiment on the entire population, with disastrous consequences for our health.

For decades, we have been told that the best possible diet involves cutting back on fat, especially saturated fat, and that if we are not getting healthier or thinner it must be because we are not trying hard enough. But what if the low-fat diet is itself the problem? What if the very foods we’ve been denying ourselves—the creamy cheeses, the sizzling steaks—are themselves the key to reversing the epidemics of obesity, diabetes, and heart disease?

In this captivating, vibrant, and convincing narrative, based on a nine-year-long investigation, Teicholz shows how the misinformation about saturated fats took hold in the scientific community and the public imagination, and how recent findings have overturned these beliefs. She explains why the Mediterranean Diet is not the healthiest, and how we might be replacing trans fats with something even worse. This startling history demonstrates how nutrition science has gotten it so wrong: how overzealous researchers, through a combination of ego, bias, and premature institutional consensus, have allowed dangerous misrepresentations to become dietary dogma.

With eye-opening scientific rigor, The Big Fat Surprise upends the conventional wisdom about all fats with the groundbreaking claim that more, not less, dietary fat—including saturated fat—is what leads to better health and wellness. Science shows that we have been needlessly avoiding meat, cheese, whole milk, and eggs for decades and that we can now, guilt-free, welcome these delicious foods back into our lives.
