Poison in paradise : Guam disease by Oliver Sacks( visu )
2 editions published between 1996 and 1998 in English and held by 8 libraries worldwide
Guam disease, found only on that small Pacific island, causes symptoms strikingly similar to Parkinson's, Lou Gehrig's, and Alzheimer's diseases, but it is not hereditary. In this program, neurologist/author Oliver Sacks travels to Guam in order to investigate this lethal illness. Prior studies done by epidemiologists, toxicologists, anthropologists, and other neurologists have raised suspicions over the water supply, the soil, the local fish, and even the nuts of indigenous cycads. However, as scientists continue to study and hypothesize, incidence of this disease that has plagued the islanders for a century is dropping. If a cure is to be discovered-providing valuable insights into other neurological disorders-it will have to be soon, or Guam disease may disappear on its own

Twenty-five years ago, a young English butcher named Ian Waterman caught a virus that destroyed half his nervous system. He was left like a rag doll, with no sense of touch below the neck, and disorientation as to the use of his limbs unless they were actually in his field of vision. The doctors told him that he would never walk, feed himself, or dress himself again. Yet, as this inspiring documentary shows, against what seemed to be insurmountable odds, he has made an apparently miraculous recovery. How has he managed it? What does his story reveal about the extraordinary capacities of the human brain?
