Did you ever wonder what blood types mean (and if yours is special)? Or how they name diseases (and if you can get one named for you)? Or how they stopped diseases like cholera (and if you could do it, too)? Then this is the book for you!
Factismals For Health Nuts is all about the little bits of science that make it so interesting. It contains a month's worth of little facts (factismals) that explain a bit of science. Even better, each day includes a link to a science experiment that you can take part in! The experiments range from discovering the cure for cancer in cell slides to tracking flu outbreaks to collecting microbes to send into space.
And the best part is that your work in each experiment will help the researchers doing the experiment! This isn't one of those "kill a potato" books; you'll have opportunities to do *real* science and work with *real* scientists. You'll be participating in the movement known as "citizen science".
So take a look. Give an experiment or two a try. What do you have to lose?
