  1. Wow that is really an interesting read about Chris McCandless. Very disturbing too, especially about the concentration camp.

    • Fascinating too, about the variable toxicity of the plant. Somehow it’s good to know he didn’t misidentify, but rather, the books were not sufficiently nuanced re: edibility. The poor guy, though. What a terrible illness. And yes, the camps. Very disturbing.

  2. Where there is no dentist looks like a terrifying book. Considering the dangers of an untrained person giving local anesthesia, I would not, even in an extreme emergency where you have to do your own dental care, recommend that! Readers should also note that the book is written in the early 80′s. So ‘Where there is no dentist’ is also ‘Where there is no mention of standard infection control precautions to protect you from HIV, Hepatitis, etc’. I guess if you are unfortunate enough to live in an area with no dentist and your family member needs an emergency extraction you aren’t going to worry about that, but I am concerned that others might be tempted to use this book in less dire situations.

    Sadly, healthcare being what it is in this country, many are without dental care. If you are in need, do contact your local dental and dental hygiene schools as well as dental professional associations. They can direct you to low cost, and even free care in many cases.

    Glad to see the book has a section on oral hygiene, though I haven’t bought the book to read it. The best way to try to avoid having emergency need of a dentist is, of course, to brush and floss. There is a lot of info already on that available (most people are doing it wrong), and I will be starting my own blog soon.

    Wishing everyone ‘simple’ good oral health,
