Why can salamanders grow new legs and young children grow new finger tips but adult humans can t regenerate What is the electricity that flows through the human body Is it the same thing that the Chinese call Qi If so what does Chinese medicine know that western medicine ignores Dan Keown s highly accessible witty and original book shows how western medicine validates the theories of Chinese medicine and how Chinese medicine explains the mysteries of the body that western medicine largely ignores He explains the generative force of embryology how the hearts of two people in love or in scientific terms quantum entanglement truly beat as one how a cheating heart is also an ill heart which is why men are twice as likely to die of a sudden heart attack with their mistress than with their wife how neural crest cells determine our lifespan and why Proust s madeleines evoked the memories they did The book shows how the theories of western and Chinese medicine support each other and how the integrated theory enlarges our understanding of how bodies work on every level Full of good stories and surprising details Dan Keown s book is essential reading for anyone who has ever wanted to know how the body really works
