Editorial Reviews

"While marine species make up about half of global biodiversity, their extensive capacity to produce natural products and its importance to marine pharmaceutical and nutraceutical companies and others was only recently discovered by the scientific communities. The field of marine biotechnology is looking at microbes and animals like algae, sponges, and coral as a plentiful source of substances for use in the treatment of severe human diseases. This book explores the current status and potential for medicinal foods from marine animals, the various compounds available, and the staggering possibilities of their use in treating a wide range of diseases, from cancer to hypertension and much more."--Reference and Research Book News, August 2012, page 234-5
