Summary Water is a subject of interest to virtually everyone. It is becoming increasingly important in health therapy, in the environment, in chemistry and physics, and certainly in cells. This book deals with the role of water in cell function. It brings the role of water front and central. It presents the work of the leading authorities on the subject
