An immense amount of human knowledge that has been collected for ages currently exists. Nonetheless, the quest for the cure of some dire diseases, many of them fatal, is needed now more than ever. It seems that the main focus is not to state consequences, but to find causes. Taking the hypercomplexity of human biochemistry and physiology into consideration, as well as the multitude of existing scientific reports in the literature at present, this knowledge is vast enough to spend a lifetime studying, if anyone were willing to do so. Yet, even a lifetime of study may not be enough to understand how things stand.

This book does not intend to exhaust the addressed subjects, but rather provides the readers with resourceful tools to expand upon them. One of these tools involves alternatively treating cancer in a physical way, instead of chemical methods, which are the pervasive treatments in use today. Neurodegenerative syndromes are the counterparts to cancer, and they are no less dreadful. When associated with some metal ions, the neurotoxicity can be multiplied, and so can their numerous symptoms. Aluminium (III), for instance, can also have many deleterious impacts on the erythroid cells, to an extent that can drive them to degeneration.

It is time to shed some light on recent and ancient discoveries in order to give all those interested in the subject, sick or not, the choice of considering this or that medical treatment, this or that lifestyle, and this or that medication, etc. This information will then pave the way to even more research in any field of science, regardless of being old-fashioned, forgotten or even discredited by some of the scientific representatives that would certainly be labeled as deceivers of humanity for leaving us with fewer choices, thus restraining our right to choose what is best for ourselves.

Science is boundless, and therefore, all research should be free of any interference, for example, on how and if a research study should be conducted until the results are presented. That was not the case with the last centuries’ scientists; back then, both their laboratories and lives were in danger. In honor of those who stand for free science, this volume presents the knowledge as it should be, as an open source to anyone, and where it leads us is our own decision entirely. This is the fourth volume in our series. (Imprint: Nova Biomedical )
