Join the Plymouth Green and Science Book Club to discuss The Beautiful Cure by Professor Daniel Davis.
Professor Daniel Davis charts the ground-breaking scientific quest to understand how our immune system fights disease and enables the body to heal itself. He explains how it is affected by stress, sleep, age and our state of mind, and reveals how all of this knowledge is now unlocking a revolutionary approach to medicine and wellbeing.
The Beautiful Cure tells a dramatic story of detective work and discovery, of puzzles solved and of the mysteries that remain, and of lives sacrificed and saved.
