Learn the secrets of the cells in this revolutionary cytology, art, and nutrition science book written and illustrated by an artist and cytologist. This beautifully illustrated and well-researched reference manual was designed specifically to capture the attention of cytologists (cytotechs and pathologists) and nutrition-minded healthcare practitioners. Part I contains (21) 4"x6" illustrations and discussions of: 1) The Cell--nutrients and genes, the Pap Test; 2) Folic Acid Deficiency--causes due to diet, hormone use, radiation, chemotherapy, or gastric atrophy; 3) Viruses--HPV, HSV, CMV, moluscum contagiosum, RSV, adenovirus; 4) Fungi--Candida, Blastomycoses, Pneumocystis, Coccidioides, Cryptococcus, Histoplasmosis. Each disease entity is accompanied by a specific list of identifying cytological criteria. A Fungal Features Chart helps discern one fungi from another. Part II discusses the crucial roles micronutrients play in guarding against genetic mutations that result in diseases and conditions such as birth defects, cancer, and heart disease. The most compelling chapter is on folic acid deficiency and its association with medical drug and alcohol use, as well as HPV, and cancer. Extensive research has also been compiled on zinc deficiency, which Suzanne has studied intensely throughout the years. Other chapters include menopause and osteoporosis; estrogen risks; the antioxidant vitamins A, C, and E; and Suzanne's diet, "The Color Diet." Part III contains (17) brilliantly colored, full page (8"x10") images of cytology disease entities for intense study and viewing. The Art of Cytology is an excellent reference for cytologists studying for board exams and health care providersinterested in understanding how diseases effect cells, and what diseased cells look like under the microscope. It is also an interesting book to place in patient waiting rooms and offices.

This book will give physicians insight into the micronutrient pathways within cells. Knowledge of how folic acid deficiency impacts DNA will act as a precept in imparting directions for patient compliance in taking nutritional supplements.-Dr. James A. Kholos, President of the Commission On Aging Defense Systems
I read through your book and was impressed with your emphasis on nutrition and cytological abnormalities. I was also impressed by the beautiful illustrations and the extensive bibliography. The references to the work on folate deficiency and cervical dysplasia were welcome, since I had corresponded with Dr. Butterworth about the matter a number of years ago. He had written an editorial calling attention to the correlation between hyperhomocysteinemia and arteriosclerosis before I published my first article in the field in 1969. Upon request of the cytology staff I have placed your book in the library of our Cytopathology department. The cytotechnologists and cytopathologists have your book available to them for reference.

I enjoyed reading your very interesting concepts and I hope that the book will meet with a great deal of success, as it deserves.
'Suzanne, This book is uniquely presented by combining the vitamin information and the effects on the cellular physiology. I have never seen a book blended in this way, so to me it is a seminal book. Your content is rich with specific notation and current research on the nutrients. I have used this book as a reference. I think this book should be used as a text for health personnel interested in pursuing study in nutrition since the book illustrates the effects of nutritional deficiencies and sufficiency's at the cellular level. Some physicians may need to 'see' this effect in order to believe in the power of nutritional healing and health maintenance. Thanks for contributing to the nutritional literature with accurate and well developed material. The artwork was beautifully done. Being a past med tech helps me appreciate the delicate work you provided with the cell anatomy. I will certainly recommend it and plan to add it to my professional booklist handout.' - Christina Minger, EdD, LPC Metabolic Clinic Coordinator, Heart Center for Excellence, Kalamazoo, MI.
