BIOLOGICAL ANOMALIES - HUMANS II is one of 22 volumes in the Catalog of Anomalies published by The Sourcebook Project. The catalog provides an objective, unsensationalized compilation of anomalous phenomena, difficult to explain observations, and curiosities of nature in the fields of astronomy, biology, archeology, geophysics, and geology. This is the second of three volumes devoted to human biological anomalies, and focuses on the "internal" machinery of the body: its major organs, its support structure (the skeleton), and its vital subsystems - the central nervous system and the immune system. Some of the topics covered include Enigma of the Fetal Graft * Phantom Limbs * Blood Chimeras * Anomalous Human Combustion * Bone Shedders * "Perfection" of the Eye * Dearth of Memory Traces * Sudden Increase of Hominid Brain Size * Health and the Weather * Periodicity of Epidemics * Extreme Longevity * AIDS Anomalies * Cancer Anomalies * Human-Limb Regeneration * Nostril Cycling * Voluntary Suspended Animation * and Male Menstruation. BIOLOGICAL ANOMALIES - HUMANS II contains 40 illustrations and intriguing accounts collected from the archives of references including English Mechanic, New Scientist, Nature, Science, Science News Letter, Cycles, Pursuit, and Scientific American to name a few. Over 490 citations are referenced and indexed three ways, by First Author, Source, and Subject. The indexes are cross-referenced to each entry in the book to aid the reader in locating original source materials and conducting independent research.
