SIBF 2022 brings health, nutrition and first-aid to your fingertips!
Sharjah, November 09, 2022
With a growing rise in awareness and interest in matters related to general health and wellbeing in recent times, books and publications on health and wellness are flying off the shelves at the ongoing 41st Sharjah International Book Fair (SIBF).
Works available from a host of publishers, both from the region and globally at the 12-day-long fair, cover topics across the board from nutrition, knowledge and hygiene tips to children’s health education and first aid instruction.
No medical education or knowledge is needed to peruse these books, which offer succinct but relevant information on all kinds of health-related subjects.
Dr. James Duke’s The Green Pharmacy Guide to Healing Foods, a best-selling book that sold more than a million copies, is a great medical herb and plant reference. Unveiling the secrets of natural remedies in healthy food, as well as treatment and prevention methods for 80 common health concerns, this rich source material is available at the Al Farouq Publishing and Distribution stand.
How to Treat Yourself by Dr. Travis Stork, former host of the talk show The Doctors, and Encyclopedia of Family Health also provide a comprehensive health guide suitable for all family members. These are available at the Dar El Ilm Lilmalayin stand.
Even little ones can get their dose of health education and hygiene awareness through Children’s Health Education, offered at the Al Khamri Commercial Enterprises stand. The educational book covers topics such as health and disease in children, foods for growing kids, the importance of drinking water, cleanliness, dental health and family living.
Panworld Education is offering two interesting books on health at SIBF this year. A key factor in keeping diseases at bay is knowing all about the bacteria that can pervade our surroundings and bodies, and this is tackled in Meet Your Bacteria by Nicola Temple and Catherine Whitlock. It reveals the inner workings of the body and the importance of those usually helpful but often harmful microbes. The book also offers relevant information on the use of antibiotics in treating bacterial infections.
Taking another trip into what keeps individuals in good health is Immune: A Journey into the Mysterious System That Keeps You Alive by Philipp Dettmer, that takes readers on a journey through the fortress of the human body and its myriad defenses. It is a fun crash course in what is arguably the most important system in our body that is keeping us alive.
For those interested in the ins and outs of first aid and as a reference source for the exams, First Aid Cases for the USMLE series of books are available at Dar Al Hekmah. The powerful study guide offers 363 clinical cases with active-recall questions to walk readers and students through each first responder medical emergency, with high-quality illustrations.
