PRLog - Nov. 25, 2012 - HOUSTON -- Houston, Texas - November 11, 2012 - Scientists may have discovered the Rosetta Stone, the Holy Grail, of medicine and health care. University scientists in many countries have discovered major health benefits from functional sugars found in nature. Major U.S. Government Agencies are all ears and have recommended a robust effort to educate health care professionals and the public to further advance glycoscience, the study of bioactive sugars.

The National Institutes of Health, Food and Drug Administration, National Science Foundation, National Academy of Sciences, National Research Council, Howard Hughes Medical Institute, and U.S. Department of Energy have formed a committee to evaluate the importance, impact, and future of glycoscience. Their project is called "Transforming Glycoscience - A Roadmap for the Future."

The opening of a free virtual education center for health care professionals and the general public was recently announced by The Endowment for Medical Research, Inc., a non-profit scientific research and educational public charity. They will report on the work of the committee, ongoing glycomics research, and keep readers informed with an easy-to-understand format. Its mission is to make it easy for the public to understand glycoscience that may be thousands of times more complex than the genome project.

www.GlycoscienceNews.com is a free educational website for easy access to information about the latest research in the science of beneficial sugars. On their Home Page is an astounding close-up picture of a red blood cell with glycoprotein receptor sites on the surface. These fuzzy structures on the surface of human cells constitute the method of communication between cells.
