商品描述

媒体推荐

“The weight of evidence behind Dr. Blaser's cautions about antibiotics is overwhelming.” ―The New York Times

“Unlike some books on medicine and microbes, Dr. Blaser's doesn't stir up fears of exotic diseases or pandemic 'superbugs' resistant to all known drugs. He focuses on a simpler but more profound concern: the damage that modern life inflicts on the vast number of microbes that all of us, even healthy people, carry inside us at all times.” ―The Wall Street Journal

Missing Microbes presents a surprisingly clear perspective on a complex problem.” ―Philadelphia Inquirer

“In Missing Microbes, Martin Blaser sounds [an] alarm. He patiently and thoroughly builds a compelling case that the threat of antibiotic overuse goes far beyond resistant infections.” ―Nature

“Readable and challenging, Missing Microbes provides a stimulus with which to probe existing dogma.” ―Science

“Blaser presents a sensible plan for reclaiming our microbial balance and avoiding calamity both as a society...and on an individual level.” ―Discover

Missing Microbes blazes a new trail.” ―The Huffington Post

“An engrossing examination of the relatively unheralded yet dominant form of life on Earth.” ―Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“Blaser's Missing Microbes is a masterful work of preventative health and superb science writing.” ―Booklist (starred review)

“Credit Blaser for displaying the wonders and importance of a vast underworld we are jeopardizing but cannot live without.” ―Kirkus

“Missing Microbes adds a new frontier towards understanding vastly underappreciated key contributions of the human microbiome to health and human disease. As a world leader in defining the microbiome, Dr. Blaser explains how disturbing its natural balance is affecting common conditions such as obesity and diabetes, long thought of as primarily nutrition and lifestyle related problems. Blaser's carefully and convincingly written book outlines new dimensions that need to be considered in fighting a number of common diseases and in promoting health and well-being.” ―Richard Deckelbaum, Director, Institute of Human Nutrition, Columbia University

“In a world that turns to antibiotics for every infection of the ear, sinuses, or skin, Dr. Blaser makes even the most nervous parent think twice about giving her child these ubiquitous drugs. Dr. Blaser contends that the excessive use of antibiotics--especially in children--is at the root of our most serious emerging modern maladies, from asthma and food allergies to obesity and certain cancers. He walks us through the science behind his theories and examines the duality of microbes, both as essential agents of good health and perpetrators of sickness. At a time when the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is campaigning for more judicious use of antibiotics, Dr. Blaser delivers a thoughtful, well-written and compelling case for why doctors need to be more cautious about prescribing these medications and why consumers should consider alternatives before taking them.” ―Nirav R. Shah, MD, MPH, Commissioner of Health, New York

“Dr. Blaser's credibility as a world class scientist and physician makes this exploration of our body's microbial world particularly provocative. Missing Microbes will make you rethink some fundamental ideas about infection. Blaser's gift is to write clearly and to take the reader on a fascinating journey through the paradoxes and insights about the teeming world within us.” ―Abraham Verghese MD, author of Cutting for Stone

“I have often wondered why kids today seem to have such a high incidence of asthma, ear infections, allergies, reflux esophagitis and so many other conditions that I rarely saw growing up. This mystery has been solved by the pioneering work of Dr. Marty Blaser and is communicated brilliantly in Missing Microbes. I cannot emphasize enough the importance of this book to your own health, the health of your children and grandchildren and to the health of our country. Missing Microbes is truly a must read.” ―Arthur Agatston, author of The South Beach Diet

“We live today in a world of modern plagues, defined by the alarming rise of asthma, diabetes, obesity, food allergies, and metabolic disorders. This is no accident, argues Dr. Blaser, the renowned medical researcher: the common link being the destruction of vital bacteria through the overuse of broad-spectrum antibiotics. Missing Microbes is science writing at its very best--crisply argued and beautifully written, with stunning insights about the human microbiome and workable solutions to an urgent global crisis.” ―David M. Oshinsky, author of the Pulitzer Prize-winning Polio: An American Story

“Why is it that you are fat, your son has asthma, and your 13-year-old daughter is six feet tall? Dr. Blaser says your bodies are missing vital, beneficial bacteria and I guarantee that after reading this book you will agree. Take a pass on the antibiotics and read Missing Microbes.” ―Laurie Garrett, Pulitzer Prize winning writer and Senior Fellow for Global Health at the Council on Foreign Relations

平均5.0 星 A laid back, informative MUST READ for everybody!! 2016年6月7日
评论者 Sara - 已在美国亚马逊上发表
版本: 平装 已确认购买
I just closed this book and I felt the need to immediately review it. As a student microbiologist, chemist, and current medical worker, I cannot recommend this book highly enough. Dr. Blaser lays out the complexity and wonder of the microscopic world in a way that's fathomable to a general audience. He approaches the dense subject matter of the (human) microbiome in a gentle, laid back yet informative manner, making this book a relatively simple read for even those with little to no scientific background. I will be recommending this book to everyone I know, especially those working in the medical, or any science driven, field (as well as any politician I may come across, ha!) Even if you know nothing about microbiology, and your last science class was in high school, I urge you to read this informative masterpiece. I cannot overstate the urgency of this topic, and I believe this book can provide anyone with a perfect segue into the crisis of the overuse of antibiotics (or the rise of "superbugs", if that catches your attention more.)

This is now one of my favorite books! Give it a try!

平均5.0 星 Great book on general gut biome issues, more focussed on stomach than lower down. 2014年10月20日
评论者 swimdb - 已在美国亚马逊上发表
版本: 精装 已确认购买
This book has good chapters on various aspects of gut biome issues and antibiotics. The author gives clear explanations and has extensive expertise in the field.

One thing that is slightly misleading, though the major issues are covered in a general manner a lot of the specifics are focussed on Helicobacter Pylori, which is a stomach centered bacteria rather than something from lower down. I was expecting more coverage of the range of bacteria in the intestinal biome. This in no way detracts from the quality of the book as a some of the issues with H. Pylori seems to be those of the general intestinal biome also.

Overall there is quite a wide and big picture view as well as the focus on H Pylori case studies. For example the author mentions work on Caesarian birth innoculation and other clean hypothesis issues. The case studies themselves are presented in a good scientific manner with descriptions of the protocols and evidence for the findings. Also this book made me want to go work with Dr. Blaser on studies like the one he described. Important work.

平均5.0 星 Worth a read, for sure! 2016年3月19日
评论者 AmzReader - 已在美国亚马逊上发表
版本: 精装 已确认购买
This is a great book, taking readers into the cool new science of the microbiome. I liked the first-hand accounts Blaser gives of his research, especially how he starts the book with describing Helicobacter pylori and other scientists' assumptions that this was always a "bad" microbe. I think he's taken some flak for his hypothesis that antibiotics lies at the root of many chronic and autoimmune conditions, but it's certainly reasonable to think that exterminating the bacterial communities (and others) indigenous to our bodies will have an effect, and probably not a good one. I liked how he explained the basic differences between viruses and bacteria and why an antibiotic effective against bacteria can't do squat to get rid of a virus. The latter half of the book, in which Blaser shares his research on H. pylori is particularly intriguing. This bacterium might be good for us early in life, but not so good as we move into adulthood (it puts a person at risk of stomach cancer). A really good overview of the human microbiome well worth your time.

平均5.0 星 Should be required reading, worldwide. 2016年2月28日
评论者 Amazon Customer - 已在美国亚马逊上发表
版本: 精装 已确认购买
I just finished reading it once and started reading again, it's that important. Should be required reading at every university, across the world.
I've been studying about the human microbiome for the last 3 years. Martin Blaser's book is critically important to worldwide health. Educate your congressmen, educate the public, educate our health care professionals, we can't continue to keep making the mistakes that we have been making.
Funding to unlock the secrets of how to restore diversity of this ecosystem we carry should be increased a thousand percent, it's that critical for restoring health, worldwide. And for God's sake we have to stop the barbaric practice of feeding antibiotics to our livestock as growth enhancers.
