Altering Eden : the feminization of nature by Deborah Cadbury( Book )
1 edition published in 1999 in English and held by 421 libraries worldwide
"Scientists around the world are finding alarming changes in human reproduction and health. There is strong evidence that sperm counts have fallen dramatically. Testicular, prostate, and breast cancer are on the rise. Different animal species are even showing signs of "feminization" or "changing sex," the males actually producing eggs like females. According to scientific evidence compiled worldwide, the prime suspect in these worrying findings is the increased exposure to chemicals that can mimic the female hormone estrogen and other hormones." "Believed responsible for genital abnormalities and cancers across a wide range of species, these hormone-disrupting chemicals may pose a threat not only to our human potential, but to our very survival." "Through extensive interviews with fertility experts and scientists worldwide as well as members of the chemical industry, Deborah Cadbury provides a balanced, cogent, compelling argument that propels us toward a disturbing conclusion."--Jacket
The dinosaur hunters : a story of scientific rivalry and the discovery of the prehistoric world by Deborah Cadbury( Book )

The story of two nineteenth-century scientists who revealed one of the most significant and exciting events in the natural history of this planet: the existence of dinosaurs. In 'The Dinosaur Hunters' Deborah Cadbury brilliantly recreates the remarkable story of the bitter rivalry between two men: Gideon Mantell uncovered giant bones in a Sussex quarry, became obsessed with the lost world of the reptiles and was driven to despair. Richard Owen, a brilliant anatomist, gave the extinct creatures their name and secured for himself unrivalled international acclaim.

The feminization of nature : our future at risk by Deborah Cadbury( Book )
14 editions published between 1997 and 1998 in 3 languages and held by 182 libraries worldwide
"Starting with a single clue, the sharp rise in the incidence of testicular cancer in recent years, this book follows an extraordinary detective trail as scientists uncover disturbing evidence of adverse changes in human reproduction and health. A dramatic fall in sperm counts over the last fifty years has been reported in Europe and America, together with an increase in sex-organ abnormalities of baby boys. In the same time-scale other reproductive cancers have also increased, most noticeably breast and prostate cancer. These alterations to human reproduction are mirrored by extraordinary changes in wildlife: from Florida panthers with undescended testes to male fish in a British river producing high levels of the female egg-yolk protein, there are species showing signs of 'feminization', or even 'changing sex'. The experimental evidence points to a common link between all these changes: alterations in exposure to the female hormone oestrogen." "Recently it has been discovered that many synthetic chemicals can act like weak oestrogens, imitating the female hormone and other hormones. More frightening still, these are chemicals to which we are all exposed, substances which we are eating, drinking and bathing in. Furthermore, unlike the natural hormone oestrogen, which is active in the body for hours at most, some of these hormone-mimicking chemicals can accumulate in our body fat and linger in our tissues for years." "Could there be a connection between these two threads of scientific research? This book examines the compelling evidence and presents the views of leading scientists in the field."--Jacket

Seven wonders of the industrial world. the Hoover dam ( visu )
1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 93 libraries worldwide
This program, the final in the acclaimed Seven Wonders of the Industrial World series, follows the story of The Hoover Dam, a structure standing sixty stories high with a larger volume than the Great Pyramid at Giza. In 1902, engineer Arthur Powell-Davis dreamed of creating the largest dam ever and taming the Colorado River. With electricity and irrigation, the deserts of the west would bloom and the face of America would change forever. Powell-Davis's dreams turned to nightmares as twenty years passed in legal wrangling until the desperate conditions of the Great Depression revitalised the scheme which became a symbol of hope for thousands. The ruthless and dedicated engineer Frank Crowe took charge and many lives were lost, as the entire Colorado River had to be diverted to make way for the construction. They built four mammoth tunnels through nearly a mile of rock using innovative contraptions called drilling jumbos. These trucks, stacked tall with tiers of 24-30 drills, would back up against the rock face to bore holes for the explosive. Carbon monoxide poisoning and injuries from cave-ins were common as men struggled deep underground with power tools and dynamite. Safety was sacrificed for speed. Work then began on the dam itself. At its base workers removed over half a million cubic yards of mud before reaching the bedrock foundation. Most endangered of all were the "high scalers" who had to swing right out over the sides of the Grand Canyon to blast the canyon walls to create a smooth surface for the concrete. The rock face was a maze of live air hoses, electrical lines and other climbers. The men soon improvised the first use of hard hats by coating cloth hats with coal tar. By June 1933, they began pouring concrete and continued for the next two years, 24 hours a day, seven days a week. On February 1 1935, the diversion tunnels were blocked. The Colorado resumed her natural course and the dam went into operation

The lost king of France : how DNA solved the mystery of the murdered son of Louis XVI and Marie-Antoinette by Deborah Cadbury( Book )
4 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 70 libraries worldwide
Louis-Charles, Duc de Normandie, enjoyed a charmed early childhood in the gilded palace of Versailles. At the age of four, he became the dauphin, heir to the most powerful throne in Europe. Yet within five years he was to lose everything. Drawn into the horror of the French Revolution, his family was incarcerated and their fate thrust into the hands of the revolutionaries who wished to destroy the monarchy. In 1793, when Marie Antoinette was beheaded at the guillotine, she left her adored eight-year-old son imprisoned in the Temple Tower. Far from inheriting a throne, the orphaned boy-king had to endure the hostility and abuse of a nation. Two years later, the revolutionary leaders declared Louis XVII dead. No grave was dug, no monument built to mark his passing. Immediately, rumors spread that the prince had, in fact, escaped from prison and was still alive. Others believed that he had been murdered, his heart cut out and preserved as a relic. As with the tragedies of England's princes in the Tower and the Romanov archduchess Anastasia, countless "brothers" soon approached Louis-Charles's older sister, Marie-Therese, who survived the revolution. They claimed not only the dauphin's name, but also his inheritance. Several "princes" were plausible, but which, if any, was the real heir to the French throne? The Lost King of France is a moving and dramatic tale that interweaves a pivotal moment in France's history with a compelling detective story that involves pretenders to the crown, royalist plots and palace intrigue, bizarre legal battles, and modern science. The quest for the truth continued into the twenty-first century, when, thanks to DNA testing, the strange odyssey of a stolen heart found within the royal tombs brought an exciting conclusion to the two-hundred-year-old mystery of the lost king of
The Estrogen effect : assault on the male ( visu )
1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 58 libraries worldwide
Will environmental changes brought about by humans eventually destroy the potential for males of all species to reproduce? This Emmy Award-winning documentary explores that frightening possibility. Using sophisticated investigative techniques, scientists trace the ripple effect of estrogenic compounds in the environment. At first, we observe slight changes in the natural order, then witness the wider effects: seriously altered ecosystems and the disruption of fundamental life processes that result in reduced male reproduction. The dismal conclusion is that the process, unabated, may result in male sterility over time
