This book deals with a large number of topics of interest to the general public. It is written in simple language to be understood by everybody. It deals with topics which are of considerable concern to all, topics such as:
- high blood pressure
- genetic disorders
- kidney disease
The format of these articles is to take the reader from established knowledge and then goes on to discuss recent advances in these topics, indicating the way forward, the areas which are currently of greatest research interest, and the most likely advances to be expected in years to come. The book is provided with a detailed index so one can pick and choose which topics to read, or else it can be read from beginning to end to get a fuller picture of the state of health issues today. The book also contains a section relating to ethical issues in medicine.
These topics have become more and more acute in recent years following the tremendous advances in medical science.
Social aspects are of concern because invariably they are closely linked with medical issues. These also are dealt with in several of the articles to be found in this book.
Professor Cauchi is a medical expert who has devoted a considerable part of his life to teaching and writing about medical issues.
