The Silent War Within: Biochemistry & Legal Research on Parasitic Fungi based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
I was challenged and motivated to study further after I had read her book as a retired biochemist (72 years old) as well as a biologist who is diagnosed with cancer. I had purchased this book through Createspace 3 months ago at 35 dollars before I ordered the same book through Barnes and Noble at a cheaper price in March for my friend who is diagnosed with ovarian cysts and who would not buy biochemistry books for herself. I can tell the difference between those two books printed by Createspace and Barnes and Noble in regard to printing and paper quality. I would recommend Createspace for the better quality of paper and print even if you pay 5 dollars more. I would recommend this book to any patient who is suffering from any type of illness as I know biochemistry and biology are inseparable fields of study to understand any type of diseases caused by microorganisms especially by eukaryotes such as fungi. I think the author used the most persuasive and realistic approach within biochemistry, biology, and physics to explain her subject. I cannot imagine any other way to explain autoimmune diseases such cancer after I read her book. It is brilliant for her to use interesting stories and analysis about how autoimmune diseases are initiated and why human LDL Cholesterol is likely a fungal sterol. I sensed that she wrote this book for all different ages ranging from elementary schoolers to medical school professors. It is probably because diseases do not discriminate ages or occupations. Her research has a great quality, her criticism is witty, and her analysis is keen. I agree to her findings. This book is shocking, intriguing, and challenging. The book has many images, formulas, figures, and diagrams. I admit that I was able to read this book easily because I have academic background to catch the meaning of the words used in this book. However, I think the way she explained the difficult biochemistry is one of her skills that I probably did not have. I gave up my dream to write a biochemistry book because I thought that not many people are interested in biochemistry books to improve their health. I think the author did a great job in drawing attention from cancer patients and in leveling her book to their interests while the book could be the most challenging book for biochemists. Though I was able to guess from the table of contents when I received the book, the contents were beyond my imagination. I think her new finding about inhibition of growth of tumor is extremely interesting and her finding is worth further research if you are a scientist. I think this type of book is rare since the book has textbook knowledge, latest research data, testimonies, legal cases, author’s experiments, new findings, etc. I think this book may be most recognized by toxicologists, microbiologist, biotoxin professionals, pharmacologists, oncologists, biochemists, cancer biologists, etc while the most practical beneficiaries may be patients who have symptoms that the author described in her introduction. I think students and professors who are still learning and teaching from older biochemistry textbooks must read this book to broaden their scientific mind and get motivated to fixate their career as bioelectrical researchers in the future. I can say this because this is what I felt after I read this book. I would give A++ for this science book. This book is beyond expectation.
