UXL has published a group of titles (under the umbrella name UXL Complete Health Resource) that is invaluable as a health-education reference for topics commonly taught in middle and high school: diseases, the human body, and mental and physical wellness.Body by Design consists of 12 chapters. Volume one contains information on the cardiovascular, digestive, endocrine, integumentary, lymphatic, and muscular systems. Volume two covers the nervous, reproductive, respiratory, skeletal, and urinary systems and the five senses. Following an introductory overview of the system and its function, each chapter covers the anatomy and the physiology in four sections: "Design," "Workings," "Ailments," and "Taking Care." Black-and-white and color photographs are plentiful, and color is used throughout to highlight headings and subheadings, sidebars, and other features. Volume one of Healthy Living focuses on nutrition, exercise, and environmental health; volume two concentrates on medicine and health care; volume three addresses mental health and self-esteem. The ultimate goal is to provide a solid information base and useful guidelines for sound decision making about topics such as physical fitness, stress management, safety and accident prevention, and aging. More than 160 black-and-white photographs are included; unlike the other components of the Complete Health Resource, there is no use of color. Sick! rounds out the set, examining a total of 140 ailments. These are alphabetically arranged and include common ailments such as athlete's foot, glaucoma, and rubella; more rare afflictions, such as Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (mad cow disease); and conditions such as carpal tunnel syndrome and shaken baby syndrome. Each entry, varying in length from three to eight pages, discusses causes, symptoms, diagnosis, treatment (standard and alternative), prognosis, and prevention. Most helpful is a listing of affiliated national organizations. The more than 240 black-and-white photographs and 80 color images are vivid and add interest. Sick! provides six sample research and activity ideas for interdisciplinary projects or enlightenment in science and health instruction.The text in all volumes is extremely readable for the intended audienceclear and concise and not overloaded with technical jargon.
