This volume is an account of scientific discovery related to the hepatitis E virus (HEV). HEV was first identified in Afghanistan in 1982 by a remarkably courageous act of self-experimentation by a Russian scientist. Following this, it was found that, in some developing countries in Asia and Africa, HEV was the cause of enormous outbreaks of hepatitis spread by infected drinking water, with a 25% death rate in pregnant women. For many years, HEV was thought not to be an issue in high-income countries and was only seen in travellers returning from high risk areas: it was considered a “back-packers’” disease. We now know that this was hopelessly wrong as HEV is very common in developed countries, with currently over 2 million infections per year in Europe. Here, HEV is found in pigs and spread mainly via consumption of contaminated pork meat. There has been a major increase in cases of HEV in many developed countries, including patients who have suffered liver failure, some of whom have died. We now know that HEV can also cause severe damage to the nervous system. This book describes an English doctor’s contribution to the discovery of the impact of HEV in humans. Recent cases in the UK appear to have originated from pigs in Continental Europe and HEV was, as a consequence, dubbed by the international press as the ‘Brexit Virus’; perhaps an early leaving present from our friends in the EU. Accessible to lay readers, the text includes case histories and stories from a health service increasingly under pressure and given context by examples of medical discoveries from the past. The role of the meat production industry, including questionable on-going high-risk virological practices, is put under the spotlight, leading to inevitable comparisons with the BSE crisis of the 1980s. HEV continues to exact a heavy toll in some low-income countries, most notably with multiple large outbreaks in African refugee camps. Despite the best efforts of organisations such as Médecins Sans Frontières, each year, pregnant women continue to die by the score. This is particularly poignant as these deaths may be avoidable, as there is a safe and effective vaccine. However, the HEV vaccine is only licensed for use in China, and, so far, efforts to introduce it to Africa have hit a brick wall of politics and red tape.

All the sensible hogfolk in Pigdom Plains know that if pigs were meant to fly, they’d have been born with wings—but there’s no convincing Lily Leanchops. The daughter of renowned inventor Hercules Fatchops, Lily has watched her father’s flying machines fail time and time again. Working in secret, Lily is trying to build what her father couldn’t: an aircraft that actually works. And of course, she’s following his example and employing scientific principals alone—not magic. (Well, a protection spell or two doesn’t count, right?) Lily’s secret project takes on a new sense of urgency when a mysterious enemy emerges from beyond the mountains. The Warthogs are coming, and they’re piloting flying machines powered by dangerous magic spells. To save Pigdom Plains, Lily must take to the skies in her own experimental aircraft—and there’s no time for a test run. Pigs Might Fly chronicles the adventures of a team of airplane-flying pigs, from knockout duo Nick Abadzis and Jerel Dye.

The award-winning classic by internationally renowned author Emily Rodda. Pigs can't fly. Can they? 'I wish something would happen!' said Rachel. 'Something interesting!' Afterwards, she would remember what she'd said and how she'd felt, that rainy Saturday morning, and she would think, 'That was really the beginning,' and her stomach would give a little jolt, and the tips of her fingers would tingle. But at the time she didn't know what was in store. All she knew was that she was bored. Bored with having a cold and having to stay in bed. Bored with the rain drumming on the roof. If only something unlikely or unexpected would happen for a change. Something exciting - something wonderful. 'Maybe it will!' her father said, 'And pigs might fly!' Ages: 9+

A hopefully amusing look at life in and around a Provincial Police Force in UK during the less troubled times of the latter half of the 20th century. A time when getting the job done involved a lot more mutual respect and a lot less bureaucracy.
