    Gundry says that a plant protein called lectin is responsible for obesity, and many autoimmune disorders. Gundry offers a diet that eliminates lectins, GMOs, and other toxins. This diet will allow people to reduce weight, improve health, and eliminate a wide range of conditions including diabetes, heart disease, lupus, and more. Lectins are plant toxins. Plants evolved lectins as poisons to discourage insects from eating plant seeds or other parts of the plant. Lectins are in most plants, and can cause sickness in humans.

Noah's parents, an African woman and a Swiss man, had an unusual relationship. They never married, and Noah isn't sure to what degree they were even romantically involved. (They were, at the very least, good friends). His mother was keen to have a child, and his father was to be a glorified sperm donor.

    In order to bring its origin to light, Rebecca Skloot weaves together several narrative threads. One is primarily focused on Henrietta Lacks, the woman who, without her knowledge, became central to 20th century biomedical research. Another is the birth of modern biomedical research itself, and its roots in the American eugenics movement. Finally, there is the impact of this research, both of the Lacks Family and on society at large. Skloot divides the book into 3 parts: Life, Death, and Immortality.

She never found out that Mabel had in fact only gotten a few miles from the plantation, and then decided to turn back, because she couldn't bear abandoning her child.

In the book's preface, Greene argues that, at least on the surface, the quest for power has been demonized, the end result of a culture that frowns upon those who seem too eager to get too far ahead in life.

    Neil deGrasse Tyson, a former star, amateur wrestler at Harvard who went on to become an award-winning astrophysicist, might be the most well-known science communicator in the United States since the late Carl Sagan. Tyson, who has served as the director of the Hayden Planetarium in New York City since 1996, had published a dozen books prior to Astrophysics for People in a Hurry; all of them have been aimed at a popular audience. In spite of that, Astrophysics for People in a Hurry is probably his most accessible and scaled-down work to date.
