During the early 1990s, the diet drugs fen-phen and Redux achieved tremendous popularity. The chemical combination was discovered by chance, marketed with hyperbole, and prescribed to millions. But as the drugs' developer, pharmaceutical giant American Home Products, cashed in on the miracle weight-loss pills, medical researchers revealed that the drugs caused heart valve disease. This scandal was, incredibly, only the beginning of an unbelievable saga of greed. In Fat Chance, Rick Christman recounts a story that a judicial tribunal later described as "a tale worthy of the pen of Charles Dickens." Bill Gallion, Shirley Cunningham, and Melbourne Mills contrived to bring a class-action lawsuit against American Home Products in Covington, Kentucky. Their hired trial consultant, Mark Modlin, had a bizarre relationship with the presiding judge, Jay Bamberger of Covington, who was once honored as the Kentucky Bar Association's "Judge of the Year." Soon after, Stan Chesley, arguably the most successful trial attorney in the United States, joined the class-action suit. Ultimately, their efforts were rewarded with $200 million for the 431 plaintiffs, and the four lawyers immediately began to plunder their clients' money. When the fraud was discovered, two of the attorneys received long prison sentences and another was acquitted after claiming an alcoholism defense. All four were permanently banished from the practice of law and Judge Bamberger was disbarred and disrobed. Recounting a dramatic affair that bears conspicuous similarities to opioid-related class-action litigation against the pharmaceutical industry, Christman offers an engaging, if occasionally horrifying, account of one of America's most prominent product liability cases and the settlement's aftermath.

New York Times Bestseller Robert Lustig’s 90-minute YouTube video “Sugar: The Bitter Truth”, has been viewed more than three million times. Now, in this much anticipated book, he documents the science and the politics that has led to the pandemic of chronic disease over the last 30 years. In the late 1970s when the government mandated we get the fat out of our food, the food industry responded by pouring more sugar in. The result has been a perfect storm, disastrously altering our biochemistry and driving our eating habits out of our control. To help us lose weight and recover our health, Lustig presents personal strategies to readjust the key hormones that regulate hunger, reward, and stress; and societal strategies to improve the health of the next generation. Compelling, controversial, and completely based in science, Fat Chance debunks the widely held notion to prove “a calorie is NOT a calorie”, and takes that science to its logical conclusion to improve health worldwide.

Plus-size Maggie O'Leary is America's Anti-Diet Sweetheart. Her informed column about the pitfalls of dieting is the one sane voice crying out against the dietocracy. She is perfectly happy with who she is and the life she leads. Until she gets the chance to spend some quality time with Hollywood's hottest star. Maggie knows she can't exactly show up looking like…well, herself. So she swallows her words and vows to become the skinniest fat advocate Tinseltown has ever seen. Swearing her trusted assistant to silence, Maggie embarks on a "secret" makeover. From showdowns with her boss, who is convinced his star columnist is losing her edge—er, girth—to run-ins with her closest male friend, the trip through the famed red door of beauty is anything but graceful. But despite her doubts about abandoning the comfortable life she's known—not to mention deceiving legions of loyal readers who still think of her as their champion, L.A.-bound Maggie is hell-bent on getting her just "desserts"!

Millions of full-figured women face discrimination and cruelty every day of their lives. Too many hopelessly struggle to conform to society's image of how a "real woman" should look. Now, one man offers a bold new direction with this powerful and sensitive affirmation of the beauty, desirability, and sexiness of big women. Real Women Don't Diet! will alter the way the women of America view themselves. How did Ken Mayer become such an outspoken and forceful advocate for the attractiveness of large women? He begins by revealing an intensely personal and intimate look at the realization of his own sexual fascination for big, beautiful women. Real Women Don't Diet! explores the unrealistic roles that are created by the media. Ken exposes the male insecurities and frustrations which lead to the abuse of power and documents the forces behind the manipulation of women. It becomes clear how the interests of the fashion, medical, and fitness industries are served by making females feel overweight, unhealthy, and undesirable. Real Women Don't Diet! is also a celebration of the triumphs of big women in their efforts to achieve a positive self-esteem. You'll hear the courageous stories of women who grew up "fat" by society's standards. The author, a large size fashion photographer, includes portraits of women that capture added dimensions of beauty, shattering the stereotyped image of feminine sexiness. Ken Mayer challenges women to take a stand and fight for the right to be themselves--regardless of their size; to refuse to be exploited. His message is simple, yet profound: large women are perfect, just as they are. Real Women Don't Diet! will convince you that big women are attractive to the kind of men who desire women with presence--women who achieve their mental, emotional, and physical potential.

A balanced introduction to the subject that uses a systems approach in examining the mechanisms of health and the clinical factors of the disease process, tying these together with the behavioural factors (the psychology of health). The text examines the specific, critical areas of the field including stress, pain, behavioural factors in cardiovascular disease and cancer, and the management of those factors. There is also emphasis on personal control and health that include such public health concerns as smoking, excessive consumption of alcohol, and eating disorders. This book should be of interest to degree and diploma students taking courses in health psychology; also of interest to students in departments of health, physical education and nursing.
