Summary
Current Science takes readers on a journey from the darkest depths of the ocean to the outer limits of the universe! Timely topics make science immediate and relevant to today's students. Each book is packed with up-to-the-minute science information, unique CS Infographics, innovative sidebars, critical-thinking questions, and real-world career profiles. Germs-bacteria, viruses, and other organisms-surround us. While some germs are good, others are downright nasty. Germs cause infectious illnesses from the common cold to mad cow disease. Drugs and vaccines have wiped out deadly diseases such as smallpox. Still, we face new infectious enemies every day. Find out how medical researchers are working to win the battle. Book jacket.
