“All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident.” Arthur Schopenhauer German philosopher (1788 - 1860)
This new book, “The Healing Power of 8 Sugars” clearly shows we are entering into the third stage in which the philosopher, Arthur Schopenhauer explained that a truth will become accepted as self-evident. In this new book twenty doctors combine their wisdom and explain for their fellow doctors and especially the layman how glyconutrients (natural plant sugars) are utilized by the body in the battle against disease.
“The Healing Power of 8 Sugars” covers many subjects ranging from the use of glyconutrients during pregnancy, to child development issues to sports medicine, inflammation and disease cases. The science of glyconutrients is very technical, yet these doctors do a remarkable job of bringing the science down to a lay level without neglecting the concerns and issues that will appeal to the medical and scientific audience as well. According to the Massachusetts Institute of Technology Review, February 2003, “If you don't have glycosylation, you don't have life.” Significantly, this book unlocks the mysteries of glycosylation (the adding of a polysaccharide (chain of sugars) to a polypeptide (chain of amino acids) in order to make a glycoprotein) and how glyconutrients are vital for this process.
As I read each chapter I would often think “that is the best yet.” That is, until I started working my way through the next chapter. This book is absolutely remarkable and I predict it will become a nutritional best seller and one of the most important books of the year on nutrition. Maybe the most important of any year. There is a reason why The Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), which produces the highly respected MIT Review, released their February, 2003 issue entitled, “10 Emerging Technologies That Will Change the World!”
These doctors have put this “emerging technology” in front of the public in an easy to read work showing how glyconutrients will change the face of health care forever in the area of nutritional science. Moreover, this book will surely impact the exploding field of Glycobiology, which is the study of how sugars impact living systems. And finally, with this work, the term “glyconutrients” has entered into the public lexicon.
