Two collections of online health reports commissioned by Wellcome, the global health charity, are to be published in print by Canbury Press.
Canbury Press has curated some of the finest pieces into two paperback books, Bodyology and Brainology.
Many of the stories address common illnesses and developments in medicine, as well as curiosities of the human experience.
What it’s like to be struck by lightning or to lose your sense of smell and one woman’s quest to understand the menopause are among the 17 essays in Bodyology: The Curious Science of Our Bodies.
Whether smartphones really make children stupid and the medicinal use of LSD and ecstasy are among the 16 popular topics explored in Brainology: The Curious Science of Our Minds.
Mosaic Science publishes its stories on MosaicScience.com under a Creative Commons, meaning other publishers are free to re-use the content provided it is credited.
Martin Hickman, managing director of Canbury Press, said: “Mosaic Science has been leading the field in accessible, high-quality popular science. These are gripping stories that warrant the attention of book-buyers interest in health.
“They will have you marvelling at the ingenuity and determination of doctors, and the fortitude and good fortune of patients. If you want to know how window cleaner Alcides Moreno survived a 472ft fall or why you shouldn’t rely on calories, the answers are in the first book, Bodyology.”
