COENZYME QlO Thousands of scientific studies and clinical applications have shown that Coenzyme Q 10 may be one of the greatest 20th Century medicinal discoveries for prevention and treatment of disease. "New and revolutionary treatments of disease, particularly where there has been no treatment of intrinsic biochemical significance, have generally been believable to a few persons and unbelievable and even ridiculous to others before proof of efficacy... Revolutionary therapy has always been so and perhaps always shall be, but such is the nature of true discovery. It appears that the bioenergetics of CoQ 10 is remarkable and its potential in medicine is no exception to the history of controversial advances in medicine." The late Karl Folkers, PhD, Researcher "It is unthinkable for me to practice good cardiology without the help of Coenzyme Q 10. And, for the thousands of people with cardiac conditions so severe that they need a heart transplant, CoQ 10 may be a suitable alternative that not only enhances the quality of life, but extends survival as well." Stephen Sinatra, MD, FACC, Cardiologist & Author, The Coenzyme 010 Phenomenon "Energy is life, and CoQ 10 is a crucial component of the energy cycle and therefore of life itself." Emile Bliznakov, MD, Researcher and Gerald Hunt, co-authors, The Miracle Nutrient: Coenzyme QIO
Cardiovascular Disease (CVD) has two main components: diseases of the heart (cardio) and diseases of the blood vessels (vascular). As such, the circulatory system of the heart and blood vessels make up the cardio-vascular system. For example, a heart attack is a disease of the heart while stroke is a disease of the blood vessels. Both are major forms of CVD. CVD has been the number one killer in the United States every year for more than a century, except during the 1918 flu pandemic. In 2004, CVD claimed 871,500 lives or one out of every 2.8 deaths. The cost of caring for patients with CVD in the United States for 2006 is estimated at a whooping sum of US$403.1 billion. The good news is that we don’t have to be victimized by CVD. Find out how the “silent killers within,” namely pre-diabetes, diabetes, cholesterol and high blood pressure, are connected to CVD. Discover how diet and nutrition, selected food supplementation and lifestyle changes can help you prevent or reduce your risk of CVD. The advice contained in this book can open the door to a healthier, richer, and happier life. Take a positive step now to arrest the “silent killers within” and you will add years to your life and life to your years.

The world of medicine has become splintered into two factions, that of orthodoxy and its counterpart, alternative or complementary medicine. A problem with alternative medicine is, of course, that of anecdote and hearsay. The solution: the disclosure, in an unassailable fashion, of the underlying biochemical principles for alternative cancer therapies. Cancer and the Search for Selective Biochemical Inhibitors, Second Edition delineates the underlying biochemical principles for alternative cancer therapies. Completely revised and updated, this edition includes coverage of the link between concepts and practices of alternative and conventional medicine. The author examines anticancer plant substances and other alternatives such as Vitamin C, essiac tea, shark cartilage, and cat’s claw. The text also addresses the problem of determining selective and non-toxic enzyme inhibitors for cancer cell metabolic pathways. While an increased number of allopathic professionals are in tune with alternative therapies, the integration of the two factions is far from the norm. Keeping the same format that made its predecessor a benchmark text, this book compares complementary, alternative, and integrative treatments with chemotherapy and other more traditional treatments.
A classic in the area of organic synthesis, Strategies and Tactics in Organic Synthesis provides a forum for investigators to discuss their approach to the science and art of organic synthesis. Rather than a simple presentation of data or a second-hand analysis, we are given stories that vividly demonstrate the power of the human endeavour known as organic synthesis and the creativity and tenacity of its practitioners. First hand accounts of each project tell of the excitement of conception, the frustration of failure and the joy experienced when either rational thought and/or good fortune give rise to successful completion of a project. In this book we learn how synthesis is really done and are educated, challenged and inspired by these stories, which portray the idea that triumphs do not come without challenges. We also learn that we can meet challenges to further advance the science and art of organic synthesis, driving it forward to meet the demands of society, in discovering new reactions, creating new designs and building molecules with atom and step economies that provide solutions through function to create a better world. - Personal accounts of research in organic chemistry. - Written by internationally renowned scientists. - Details state of the art organic synthesis.
This volume represents a portion of the Proceedings of the Sixth International Meeting of the Reticuloendothelial Society. There is little question that the University of Freiburg was a most appropriate choice as the site of the meeting since, in essence, the Society was founded here when Aschoff undertook his classical studies on the macrophage and discovered what may well have been the last remaining biological system. In the approximate fifty years which have elapsed since Aschoff introduced the descriptive term Reticuloendothelial System to unify those cells with the common property of phagocytosis, one finds investigative activity at the highest level in all areas of reticuloendothelial involvement. Indeed, the topics covered in the present volume would of necessity require that the common property of phagocytosis which led to the formulation of the reticuloendothelial system be modified. The common basis at the present is clearly no longer phagocytic expression, but the unifying basis of host defense. The totality of reticuloendothelial involvement in host-defense is clearly reflected by the diverse scientific backgrounds and research interests of the participants of the meeting. Remarkable advances in appreciating the involvement of the RES in maintaining the well-being of the host against a variety of endogenous and exogenous factors have been made since volume I of the Advances in Experimental Biology and Medicine on the reticulo endothelial system was published.
