The rabbit effect
For all of its rigor and science, medicine is full of stories, mysteries, that doctors and research cannot explain. Patients who are biologically healthy but feel ill. Patients who are biologically ill but feel healthy. What if these health mysteries could teach something about what really makes people sick, and how to be healthy? When Columbia University doctor Kelli Harding began her clinical practice, she never intended to explore the invisible factors behind people's health. But then there were the rabbits. In 1978, a seemingly straightforward experiment designed to establish the relationship between high blood cholesterol and heart health in rabbits discovered that kindness, in the form of a particularly nurturing post-doc who petted and spoke to the lab rabbits as she fed them, made the difference between a heart attack and a healthy heart. As Dr. Kelli Harding reveals in this eye-opening book, the rabbits were just the beginning of a much larger story.
