We're told that if we care about our health—or our planet—eliminating red meat from our diets is crucial. That beef…is bad for us and cattle farming is horrible for the environment. But science says otherwise. Beef is framed as the most environmentally destructive and least healthy of meats. We're often told that the only solution is to reduce or quit red meat entirely. But despite what anti-meat groups, vegan celebrities, and some health experts say, plant-based agriculture is far from a perfect solution. In Sacred Cow, registered dietitian Diana Rodgers and former research biochemist and New York Times bestselling author Robb Wolf explore the quandaries we face in raising and eating animals—focusing on the largest (and most maligned) of farmed animals, the cow. Taking a critical look at the assumptions and misinformation about meat, Sacred Cow points out the flaws in our current food system and in the proposed "solutions." Inside, Rodgers and Wolf reveal contrarian but science-based findings, such as: • Meat and animal fat are essential for our bodies. • A sustainable food system cannot exist without animals. • A vegan diet may destroy more life than sustainable cattle farming. • Regenerative cattle ranching is one of our best tools at mitigating climate change. You'll also find practical guidance on how to support sustainable farms and a 30-day challenge to help you transition to a healthful and conscientious diet. With scientific rigor, deep compassion, and wit, Rodgers and Wolf argue unequivocally that meat (done right) should have a place on the table. It's not the cow, it's the how!

According to The Journal of the American Medical Association, 43% of women in America - of all ages - suffer…from sexual dysfunction. But doctors have generally dismissed these complaints, telling women their problems are just in their heads or something they have to accept. Dr. Jennifer Berman is one of the few female urologists in the country; Dr. Laura Berman is a sex therapist. Together these sisters run the Women's Sexual Health Clinic at Boston University Medical Center - the first in the country to offer comprehensive physiological and psychological treatment of female sexual dysfunction. In their research and clinical work, the Bermans have learned that many of the same physical problems that cause impotence in men can cause dysfunction in women. Many women also experience diminished sexual response after aging and menopause, or after hysterectomies or other pelvic surgery.In this book the Drs. Berman give women of all ages the information they need to understand what's going on with their bodies and what treatments are available in order to achieve more fulfilling sex lives.
