Product description


"Blood Viscosity Factors" brings together a series of essays on the impact of various abnormalities on blood viscosity factors. It contains several hundred references to already published work in the field. Beginning with the finding that red blood cells proliferate in shape and are not just one toroidally shaped horde, the work offers unique insights into the role of ageing and disease. The work of Dr Simpson corrects the record and offers tantalising possibilities for the future. One result of the move to targeted and commercial research has been to stunt the growth of whole fields of inquiry in favour of more convenient or competitive ways of looking at a situation. The real puzzle is that the work has been done and a substantial body of peer reviewed publications attest to the quality and depth of the findings. The book is of interest to those readers who prefer a more holistic view of science and the world, than is currently offered by the standard texts.

About the Author

Dr. Leslie Simpson graduated from the University of Otago in New Zealand in Zoology and later was awarded a Ph.D. in Experimental Pathology. After a variety of employment including Military Service, he became active in research with the Pathology Department of the University of Otago, Medical School. He served for seven years in the World Health Organization. Initial studies of the difference between healthy subjects and the general population led to a focus on the impact of blood viscosity on ageing and other aspects of health. This in turn led to the recognition that certain abnormalities were characterized by a loss of deformability and filterability of blood cells.
