Current book (discussion November 6, 2013)
What do your detergent and your stomach have in common? What is the importance of biodiversity in your gut for fighting disease? How can a kiss help heal wounds? These are just a few of the many things you will learn about while reading award-winning author Mary Roach’s latest nonfiction book. Sometimes gross, sometimes surreal, but always interesting, Gulp takes you on a adventure through the alimentary canal, with visits to pet food coating facilities, Elvis’ doctor, prison cells, and labs dedicated to studying saliva, poo, and everything in between.
