A toddler suddenly starts worrying her parents when she loses appetite for the foods she normally eats. Then, she starts craving salt, cat food and dog food, but becomes stunted in her growth. After the little girl develops a strange rash, her parents learn that she has been infected by the Toxocara canis parasite. A middle-aged executive of a company had been living a healthy life, until he suddenly starts feeling pain in his abdomen. Initially, it seems he simply has a colon condition called diverticulitis. However, the abdominal cramps return and become so intense that they force him to go to the hospital and get surgery. There, the man discovers that his colon has been invaded by a pathogenic form of Escherichia coli. An older married couple is celebrating for their planned future, when suddenly, they both have flu-like symptoms. When the doctor discovers swollen lymph nodes on them both, the couple learn that they have been infected by the Bubonic plague. The husband's condition, though, is much worse, as he develops gangrene and even has to get his calves amputated.

Teens are re-writing the rules of sex but while their bodies suddenly become adult, they're not necessarily in sync with their chief sex organ - the teen brain. Whether they're having sex or not, whether their parents like it or not, teenagers are sexual beings. Today's teens are having sex earlier, clocking up more partners and are more sexually adventurous than ever. It all starts with puberty, the human sexuality switch, but it's the teen brain that drives this change, influencing teen sex lives in surprising ways.

Science reveals that irrational, inexplicable teenage mood swings aren't only normal, they're helpful and beneficial - even if they are painful for parents and teens alike. Teenagers may be sulky and surly one moment, exuberant and ecstatic the next. And it's more than hormones that brings on these extreme teen mood swings, it's their developing brains that are also to blame. Teens are at a cerebral crossroads; their brains driving new ways of thinking and feeling, and how teens learn to manage their moods can either empower or derail them for the rest of their lives.
