New revision!

A new revision of the book is available in the links on the left.  I added chapters on anti-oxidants, cancer, cardiovascular diseases and supplements in view of recent studies, especially on the potential for protein cycling to benefit cardiovascular outcomes. The WordPress editor is a real bear and I've yet to figure out how to make a link to the middle of a page.  Instead I directed the footnotes directly to their sources and have updated the links to PDFs where available.

Recent work has implicated autophagy in lipid processing and the cardiovascular community is buzzing with new studies on autophagy and heart disease.  For me personally heart disease, given my family history, is more likely to kill me than any neurodegenerative disease and so, I will look into the subject and add cardio-vascular diseases to the list of diseases that protein cycling might prevent.  There is a lot of literature to digest and this may take some time.
