Until recently not at all well understood, sickle cell disease afflicts a very specific portion of the population, namely persons of African descent and, to a lesser degree, those from the Middle East, India, and the Mediterranean area (some in the affected groups carry the disease without suffering from it themselves). Bloom discusses what the disease is, how it is transmitted, why it strikes whom it does, and the relationship between the sickle cell gene's geographic origins and how it has been spread throughout history. Addressing more personal matters, she considers emotional aspects of the disease, its symptoms, living with it, and keeping one's family free of it in the U.S. today; and she also ventures beyond purely medical matters, as when she discusses the role of the slave trade in spreading the disease. Although it imparts much technical information, the book is very much for the lay reader. Mike Tribby --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
