JOPPPAH is deeply grateful to Michel Odent for this opportunity to share with our readers this “preview."

Author’s note: Some parts of this chapter are not vital to understanding the essential points. This is why they are written in small letters in parentheses. However they can satisfy the curiosity of readers familiar with the language of biochemists.

Editor’s note: The references are in European style. We were asked by the author and publisher not to change anything in this chapter since it is part of an upcoming publication. Also, the formatting (headings and such) are a bit different from our standard and some words retain European spelling.
