[まとめ買い] 社会の裏側!
その国の国民が、現在「幸福なのかそうでないのか」を手っ取り早く知るには、「弱者」の現状を見ればすぐに分かります。子どもや女性、障害者、老人たちがいかに虐(しいた)げられているのか。それはほかの国もまったく同様です。この日本では、21世紀のいま、何を間違ったのか、弱者たる女子中高生たちを大いに苦しめている事実が明らかになりました。それは、「子宮頸(けい)ガンワクチン」。これによる、きわめて重篤(じゅうとく)な副作用が各地で報告されているんですね。2013年の3月25日には、「全国子宮頸がんワクチン被害者連絡会」が設立されるまでになっております。ある父親によれば、被害者は高校2年の16歳の娘だとのこと。商品名「サーバリックス」のワクチンを3回接種したとのことですが、その後、高熱や体の痛みがあり、座ると立ち上がれない状態になり、病院に行ったとのことです。なのに、最初の医師は、それの症状を軽視し、内診もせずに「風邪薬を処方」したというわけなんですね。全身が痛くてぐったりしている娘を目の前にして、そのような対応をする医師。そのような事例を、本書では紹介し、いったいいま薬の認可がどうなっているのか

なぜなら、この「スクラロース」は、本書で述べていますように、

きっと、今後、さまざまな場面で使われることでしょう。

あの問題のある「異性化糖」と併せて使われることもあるでしょう

Annals of the Former World (4 Book Series)
From Book 1:

The first of John McPhee's works in his series on geology and geologists, Basin and Range is a book of journeys through ancient terrains, always in juxtaposition with travels in the modern world—a history of vanished landscapes, enhanced by the histories of people who bring them to light. The title refers to the physiographic province of the United States that reaches from eastern Utah to eastern California, a silent world of austere beauty, of hundreds of discrete high mountain ranges that are green with junipers and often white with snow. The terrain becomes the setting for a lyrical evocation of the science of geology, with important digressions into the plate-tectonics revolution and the history of the geologic time scale.

Green This! (3 Book Series)
From Book 1: Change the way you clean and keep your family's home wholesome and healthy with the help of expert and activist Deirdre Imus.

We all grew up thinking chemical smells like bleach and ammonia signaled "clean." But as Deirdre Imus reveals, some of the chemicals we use to maintain our homes are doing us and our families much more harm than good. In Greening Your Cleaning, the first in her Green This! series, Deirdre shows how cleaning house the environmentally responsible way can be as effective and often cheaper than the more traditional, toxic, means. This volume includes:

  • Simple, efficient cleaning methods for every room of the house
  • Spotlights on everyday products (all purpose cleaner, glass/window cleaner, laundry detergent) and the toxic ingredients you should be wary of
  • Summaries of the latest research on the toxic effects of ordinary chemicals
  • Resource lists of widely available "green cleaning" products and retailers


Filled with tips and testimonials, Greening Your Cleaning will show you how to streamline your cleaning products and practices, and how easy it is to make "living green" your way of life.

Carbon Ideologies (2 Book Series)
From Book 1: “The most honest book about climate change yet.” —The Atlantic

The Infinite Jest of climate books.” —The Baffler

A timely, eye-opening book about climate change and energy generation that focuses on the consequences of nuclear power production, from award-winning author William T. Vollmann


In his nonfiction, William T. Vollmann has won acclaim as a singular voice tackling some of the most important issues of our age, from poverty to violence to the dark soul of American imperialism as it has played out on the U.S./Mexico border. Now, Vollmann turns to a topic that will define the generations to come--the factors and human actions that have led to global warming. Vollmann begins No Immediate Danger, the first volume of Carbon Ideologies, by examining and quantifying the many causes of climate change, from industrial manufacturing and agricultural practices to fossil fuel extraction, economic demand for electric power, and the justifiable yearning of people all over the world to live in comfort. Turning to nuclear power first, Vollmann then recounts multiple visits that he made at significant personal risk over the course of seven years to the contaminated no-go zones and sad ghost towns of Fukushima, Japan, beginning shortly after the tsunami and reactor meltdowns of 2011. Equipped first only with a dosimeter and then with a scintillation counter, he measured radiation and interviewed tsunami victims, nuclear evacuees, anti-nuclear organizers and pro-nuclear utility workers.

Featuring Vollmann's signature wide learning, sardonic wit, and encyclopedic research, No Immediate Danger, whose title co-opts the reassuring mantra of official Japanese energy experts, builds up a powerful, sobering picture of the ongoing nightmare of Fukushima.

Time Travel Adventures Of The 1800 Club (15 Book Series)
From Book 1: The Time Travel Adventures Of The 1800 Club is a 21st Century haven for people seeking to escape New York City’s frantic pace. Dressed in clothes their ancestors might have worn during the 1800s, members enjoy foods of the period and read periodicals featuring news of a particular date in 1865. However, the 1800 Club also has an astounding secret . . . Time Travel. Members travel back in time nudging famous persons and key events just enough to ensure history unfolds, as it should. Guardians-of-the-future, who send robotic probes back through the ages, discover that, at critical time-junctures, pivotal figures stray from vital tasks and actions. Then an 1800 Club member is sent back to guarantee that events get back on track. The 1800 Club’s members aid Lincoln, Roosevelt, Bat Masterson, Mark Twain and many others. Without subtle interventions by these unknown agents, the famous might have been only footnotes,
rather than giants of history

Public Health Ethics Analysis (4 Book Series)
From Book 1:

Ethical issues associated with public health and health policy--related, for example,  to pandemic plans and vaccination policies (c.f. SARS or pandemic influenza), preventive measures like screening (e.g. for breast cancer or dementia) or health information campaigns, social inequalities or health care rationing--are increasing in worldwide importance. Evidence-based information for valid benefit-harm assessment is often rare and hard to get for participants in public health interventions. Program implementation often disregards requirements of fair decision-making processes (like public participation, transparency, etc.). Originating from an international conference (based on a call for abstracts and external review), this volume contains contributions from a group of experts from multiple disciplines and countries.  It covers (i) conceptual foundations of public health ethics, (ii) methodological approaches and (iii) normative analyses of specific issues and cases. Bridging theoretical foundations with practical applications, this volume provides a valuable resource for researchers, practitioners and students concerned with public health practice and policy.

Transport and Sustainability (11 Book Series)
From Book 1: This book explores the reasons for difficulties in making cycling mainstream in many cultures, despite its claims for being one of the most sustainable forms of transport. The topic is looked at from the varying perspectives of people, the environment and the economy with multi-disciplinary contributions from the UK, Denmark, the Netherlands, Sweden, Spain, Germany, Australia, China and USA. Initially, it examines the cultural development of cycling in countries with high use and the differences in use between different sub-groups of the population. It then explores issues of urban form, and the attributes of the network and the system for appropriately accommodating cycle users. Cross-cultural issues are once again investigated through an exposition of research in developing countries and the environment in which scheme promoters and users operate. The book draws to a close with an exploration of state-of-the-art thinking on demand model.

Chuck Palmer Adventure Series (2 Book Series)
From Book 1: Disclaimer: This book is intended to stretch and expand your mind and challenge traditionally held concepts in many major religions of the world. Please proceed with that in mind.

After 60 years of endless hours working on his amazing invention Dr. Michael Hannigan has finally succeeded. He has built a camera, a very special camera. His quantum camera is able to retrieve images created hundreds and possibly thousands of years ago. The quantum camera will record ancient events as they took place. The quantum camera will look back in time, and reveal the truths that have been lost for centuries. It will provide answers to the many questions surrounding ancient events. Dr. Michael Hannigan will change history, but that was never his goal.

Dr. Hannigan is a brilliant physicist, but he is also a devout Catholic. For the past 60 years his dream was to show the world the miracles that Jesus performed. Unfortunately his camera is too heavy for him to carry across the Holy Land while searching for the elusive Messiah. He asks his friend and ex-Navy SEAL Chuck Palmer to help him. Chuck possesses the necessary physical strength, but he lacks Dr. Hannigan’s resolute faith. In fact Chuck is an atheist. He is convinced his friend will be devastated when the true Jesus is exposed. Chuck reluctantly agrees to help, but only if his girlfriend can join them.
Dr. Hannigan sets out on the adventure of a lifetime. He is going to find the historical Jesus of Nazareth, but he soon discovers that there are people in high places that will stop at nothing including murder to insure he fails.

Life-Navigation (3 Book Series)
From Book 1: The author, Agustina Thorgilsson, realises the strength she has in herself and the resilience she possesses when life tests her again and again. By recalling the methods we humans have used for thousands of years of inner wisdom. This realisation has lead to an inner calm and emotional freedom she discovered that is available to all of us.
After being forced to leave an unbearable situation that rendered her out of work and without a partner, Agustina had to get over it and still make a living and continue with her life. She learned to open up to her intuition and connectedness to nature. Agustina opened her mind to the fact that real success in life is not from without, but within.
We all try to do our best in life and follow what we hear others say and what the mind tells us is right. Most of us are following something that is not really coming from our heart or intuition, but is some kind of an echo from our surroundings and society. We get pushed around in life by this, instead of freeing ourselves from the controls the very same society is binding us in.
The Power of Slow Living shows the way to the free mind and spirit. This helps the heart to open up to all there is and see the beauty in all and everything. It shows how to find that inner peace leads to outer peace and harmony with oneself, others, society and nature. By being who you really are you become a conscious participant of existence on this Earth.
Today Agustina runs a successful Psychological clinic.
