Healthy World Press

Welcome to Healthy World Press!


Healthy World Press (HealthyWorldPress.org) publishes interdisciplinary books connecting science, history, and art. We work with authors to edit and publish print and e-books that explore environmental health topics through multiple perspectives and media.

Our goal is to unite the arts and sciences to forge a more healthy and peaceful world. See below for information on our current titles: A Small Dose of Toxicology, 2nd Edition, Particles on the Wall, and The Alzheimer President.

Healthy World Press was initially developed as part of a larger effort called Healthy World Theater (HWT). Healthy World Theater and Healthy World Press are dedicated to making knowledge accessible within the context of history, politics, and culture, and through the lens of both artistic media and scientific information.

Healthy World Press is a project of the Institute of Neurotoxicology & Neurological Disorders (INND), a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation. Proceeds from the books are dedicated to furthering a healthy and peaceful world. For more information contact Steven Gilbert at sgilbert@innd.org.

 

A Small Dose of Toxicology, 2nd Edition



A Small Dose of Toxicology is an introductory toxicology textbook that examines the health effects of common chemical agents and places toxicology within the framework of our daily lives. Agents covered include not only obvious candidates such as lead, mercury, and solvents, but familiar compounds such as caffeine, alcohol, and nicotine. Additional chapters cover basic toxicology, targets of toxic agents, and applied toxicology.

The Alzheimer President



The Alzheimer President, by Bernard Weiss, was written during Ronald Reagan’s tenure and explores the policy implications of early neurodegenerative disease.

The gripping novella raises critical questions lying at the intersection of science and society: How good are our tools for detecting incipient neurobehavioral dysfunction? How effectively can we ascertain that exposure to a neurotoxic chemical has generated damage to the brain? Are we, as a society, prepared to respond when leaders show signs of neurodegenerative disease?

The Alzheimer President captivates readers with its social relevance, engaging characters, and fast-paced plot, and is embellished with beautiful full-color illustrations.
