Methionine Addiction of Cancer Cells
This is an excellent book for researchers and others desiring to explore deeply into methionine dependence. Methionine restriction is clearly an enormously powerful therapeutic approach to cancer treatment. Dietary methionine restriction appears to be the key to prolonging healthy lifespan. This book contains 24 chapters which are all specifically elucidating the mechanistic and practical aspects of methionine restriction. Dr. Robert Hoffman is the editor of this book but is also the author of the majority of the chapters. One can order this book through Amazon.

Methionine is one of the two sulfur containing amino acids. Strings of amino acids make up proteins. We don't use protein directly. Our digestive system must break down protein into individual amino acids. Amino acids are absorbed into the blood stream and provided as nutrients to our cells. Methionine is found in all foods but more abundant in animal foods than most plant foods. Methionine is a building block of proteins necessary for cell growth and is also utilized as a methyl donor. Methyl groups are involved in DNA signaling and gene expression.
