The author, trained primarily in the basic sciences, views the functioning of the human organism, as far as possible, upon an atomic structural basis. The book is constructed about the hypothesis that the obscure and experimentally elusive phenomenon of cellular specificity of function is based upon molecular asymmetry,—the consequent molecular instability affording a readily available source of electrodynamic energy. The attempt is made to apply this explanation to the metabolism of carbohydrates, proteins, and fats, hormones, vitamins, muscle, nervous system, special senses, etc.
The book is written in a readable style and will be most interesting to those who enjoy
