In Drugs and Bugs you will read about everything that is exciting about medicines - from crocodile poo and hippo fat in ancient Egypt, to today's injections and tablets.
You will find out how vaccines work, why antibiotics are useless against the common cold and how scientists go about inventing new medicines.
You will also learn about viruses, bacteria, fungi and parasites, how they attack the body and how we defend ourselves - both with and without medicines. And lots more!
Drugs and Bugs is written by Fredrik Brouneus, pharmacist and writer. The book is richly illustrated by Nina Erixon-Lindroth, illustrator and neuroscientist.
