Medicine's Deadly Dust: A Surgeon's Wake-Up Call to Society

No reviews
A powerful, highly-readable book on the dangers of cornstarch on medical gloves, written by a prominent medical researcher. Overwhelming scientific evidence shows that this dust when left in the body after surgery can cause medical problems, including: intestinal adhesions after abdominal surgery, fibrosis of the reproductive tract; and in eye surgery, inflammation characterized by pus formation and cloudiness, which can lead to blindness in some cases. It is also a major contributor to a latex allergy, acting as a carrier for the latex protein. The cornstarch allows the allergen to be transported throughout medical facilities. Medicine's Deadly Dust is a warning that now is the time to act. An empowering book of universal interest and importance.
