Dr. Yair Ben Ziony – Love at First Bite


Four-legged patients and two-legged masters…

In this collection of stories from his life, Israeli veterinarian Dr. Yair Ben Ziony shares his fascinating experiences with animals that moo, bark, bay, and purr. Whether describing days in his private small-animal clinic, his travel in the newly independent state of Israel tending to farm animals, or his four years in pre-revolutionary Iran managing a dairy farm, Ben Ziony writes with precision, wit, and charm.

His sensitive eye reveals the beauty and nuance in every situation, as he evinces empathy not only for his four-legged patients but also for their two-legged masters, who often prove as intriguing and unpredictable as their charges. Each tale – be it amusing, sad, shocking, or simply strange – gives the listener fresh insight into the intricacies of the human-animal relationship.

I love this book. The health effects of RF EMF wireless transmitters should be known by everyone. It is proven that the technology used in cell phones and smart meters alters glucose functions in living cells and probably can affect protein folding as well as DNA replication. RF Electromagnetic fields alters the electric activity of the cell in neurons. Lawyers and politicians and engineers should not be making the decisions about cell phones nor should they be allowed to force smart meters on the American people. The vast majority of people dont know about the effects of cell phones and smart meters and they need to be informed. The book doesn’t go into a lot of electrobiology nor does it mention smart meters. But it gives plenty of great information. This book is beautifully written, very informative and you dont need to be biology major to enjoy it. And this is one case where the author is a masterful reader. Again, I love this book. I can’t say enough about it.
