I PURCHASED THIS PRODUCT BEECAUSE I WAS EXPERIENCING SOME SHEDDING THAT SEEMED TO LAST LONGER THAN I WOULD HAVE LIKED. AFTER THE FIRST USE I CAN HONESTLY SAY THE BREAKAGE HAD STOP BY AT LEAST 95%. I WAS ABLE TO STOP THE SHEDDING WHICH MADE ME VERY HAPPY. THIS PRODUCT WILL MAKE YOUR HAIR VERY HARD AFTER SITTING UNDER A DRYER. I SLEPT OVER NIGHT WITH THIS STUFF DRIED INTO MY HAIR WITH A SCARF ON AND WHEN I WASHED IT OUT THE NEXT DAY THERE WAS HARDLY ANY HAIR IN THE SINK. HAPPY, HAPPY, HAPPY HAIR. I'M SO CRAZY, BUT SERIOUSLY I AM SOLD ON THIS PRODUCT AND THE BEST PART IS ONE TREATMENT LAST FOR SIX WEEKS. GET IT, YOUR SHEDDING, BREAKING HAIR WILL LOOOOOVVVVEEE YYYOOOOUUU.
This book should be in every home. It was especially designed for people in rural areas without access to a doctor but the medical information is applicable anywhere. The way the information is presented - it is written to be easily understood by anyone and you don't need a medical degree to do so - is impressive. The wealth of information here on a large number of topics, from symptoms to treatment to possible drug side-effects, is also impressive. While most laymans' medical manuals deliberately withhold information and tell you to "see a doctor" for certain things, this book does not. As such it should be extremely valuable for emergencies. It is no substitute for a doctor but is indespensible for those situations where no doctor is available.
I really enjoyed this book. I am in my second pregnancy and already during my first one I kept wondering about the origin of the (sometimes inconsistent) "don't dos" lists I was given and found in pregnancy books. As an economist myself, I also wondered what evidence these rules were based on, but never went to the studies as she did, as it is a lot of work. She does a wonderful job of describing the evidence, and then leaves it up to the reader to make her own decisions.
As for the criticism regarding her review of the evidence about the effect of alcohol consumption during pregnancy, it seems like just another example of blind, ignorant science aversion we can encounter these days.
Thank you Emily Oster for a very useful book.
