Product Description
Scleroderma—a chronic autoimmune condition that causes hardening, thickening, or tightening of the skin and attacks the heart, lungs, kidneys, and gastrointestinal tract—is extraordinarily difficult to diagnose and can take a huge toll on the psychological well-being of the individual. From the first moment of her diagnosis, author Karen Gottesman took charge and educated herself on every aspect of her condition. Now, as a "patient-expert," she guides those newly diagnosed step by step through their first year with scleroderma. She provides crucial information about the nature of the disease, treatment options, diet, exercise, social concerns, emotional issues, networking with others, and much more. The First Year™—Scleroderma is illustrated with charts and tables, and offers an invaluable guide for everyone learning to live with their diagnosis.

#509 Anisogamy: The Beginning of Male and Female
This week we discuss how the sperm and egg came to be, and how a difference of reproductive interest has led to sexual conflict in bed bugs. We'll be speaking with Dr. Geoff Parker, an evolutionary biologist credited with developing a theory to explain the evolution of two sexes, about anisogamy, sexual reproduction through the fusion of two different gametes: the egg and the sperm. Then we'll speak with Dr. Roberto Pereira, research scientist in urban entomology at the University of Florida, about traumatic insemination in bed bugs.
