3. Ravenous: Otto Warburg, the Nazis, and the Search for the Cancer-Diet Connection
Author: by Sam Apple
Liveright (May 25, 2021)
The extraordinary story of the Nazi-era scientific genius who discovered how cancer cells eatand what it means for how we should. The Nobel laureate Otto Warburga cousin of the famous finance Warburgswas widely regarded in his day as one of the most important biochemists of the twentieth century, a man whose research was integral to humanity’s understanding of cancer.
He was also among the most despised figures in Nazi Germany. As a Jewish homosexual living openly with his male partner, Warburg represented all that the Third Reich abhorred. Yet Hitler and his top advisors dreaded cancer, and protected Warburg in the hope that he could cure it.
In Ravenous, Sam Apple reclaims Otto Warburg as a forgotten, morally compromised genius who pursued cancer single-mindedly even as Europe disintegrated around him. While the vast majority of Jewish scientists fled Germany in the anxious years leading up to World War II, Warburg remained in Berlin, working under the watchful eye of the dictatorship.

6. The Double Helix: A Personal Account of the Discovery of the Structure of DNA
Author: by James D. Watson
The classic personal account of Watson and Crick’s groundbreaking discovery of the structure of DNA, now with an introduction by Sylvia Nasar, author of A Beautiful Mind. By identifying the structure of DNA, the molecule of life, Francis Crick and James Watson revolutionized biochemistry and won themselves a Nobel Prize.
At the time, Watson was only twenty-four, a young scientist hungry to make his mark. His uncompromisingly honest account of the heady days of their thrilling sprint against other world-class researchers to solve one of science’s greatest mysteries gives a dazzlingly clear picture of a world of brilliant scientists with great gifts, very human ambitions, and bitter rivalries.
With humility unspoiled by false modesty, Watson relates his and Crick’s desperate efforts to beat Linus Pauling to the Holy Grail of life sciences, the identification of the basic building block of life. Never has a scientist been so truthful in capturing in words the flavor of his work.
7. The Switch: Ignite Your Metabolism with Intermittent Fasting, Protein Cycling, and Keto
Author: by Mr. James W. Clement
How can you lose weight, ease chronic conditions, and stay healthier longer? Discover how to rewrite your health destiny (David Perlmutter, MD, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Grain Brain) with this accessible book that teaches you how to flip the switch on your metabolism with intermittent fasting, protein cycling, and keto.
Within each of us is an ancient mechanism that eliminates toxic materials, initiates fat burning, and protects cells from becoming dysfunctionalor turning cancerous. It’s called autophagy, and when it’s turned on, the complex operation not only can slow down the aging process, it can optimize biological function as a whole, helping to stave off all manner of diseases and affording us the healthy life spans we never thought possible.
It’s the body’s ultimate switch to life. So how can we positively activate this switch? How frequently should we fast and for how long? Which foods dial up autophagy or, conversely, turn it down? How much exercise and what types are recommended?

Molecular Cell Biology
Author: by Harvey Lodish
W H Freeman & Co
Your cells are talking about you. Right now, both your inner and outer worlds are abuzz with chatter among living cells of every possible kindfrom those in your body and brain to those in the environment around you. From electrical alerts to chemical codes, the greatest secret of modern biology, hiding in plain sight, is that all of life’s activity boils down to one thing: conversation.
While cells are commonly considered the building block of living things, it is actually the communication between cells that brings us to life, controlling our bodies and brains, determining whether we are healthy or sick, and directly influencing how we think, feel, and behave.
In The Secret Language of Cells, doctor and neuroscientist Jon Lieff lets us listen in on these conversations, and reveals their significance for everything from mental health to cancer. He explains the surprising science of how very different cellsbacteria and brain cells, blood cells and virusesall speak the same language.
12. Plants from Test Tubes: An Introduction to Micropropogation
Author: by Lydiane Kyte
Thirty years ago, in vitro propagation was a new technique for producing plants, and Lydiane Kyte’s Plants from Test Tubes became the standard work on the topic. The new fourth edition has been thoroughly revised and updated to reflect the many advances in science and technology, including the five accepted sequential stages of micropropagation.
Ten new plants have been added. This in turn has greatly expanded the already extensive bibliography. Among the new topics that have been introduced or expanded on are embryo culture for breeding, somaclonal variation, anther culture, somatic embryogenesis, cryopreservation, and genetic engineering.
More ornamental plant examples are given and many new illustrations provided, including a chronology of discoveries in micropropagation.
