Just How Important Are Smart Sugars? - Smart Sugars Lesson #84

“Elimination of any single major class of glycans from an organism results in death.”

by JC Spencer

Smart Sugars hold the key to life in all humans and also for all plants and animals. Wow, where is the proof of that?

I recently read these profound words in the Introduction of a book, “Elimination of any single major class of glycans from an organism results in death.”

Glycans are sugar structures assembled one sugar at a time as building blocks to be linked and bonded usually to a protein.  Glycobiology is the biology of saccharides, sugar chains, and glycans.

The Introduction was from the book, Transforming Glycoscience - A Roadmap for the Future by the National Research Council of the National Academies.

The book was written and published in late 2012 by the Committee on Assessing the Importance and Impact of Glycomics and Glycosciences, the Board of Chemical Sciences and Technologies, Board of Life Sciences, Division on Earth and Life Studies.

The Committee and  Project were supported by The National Institutes of Health (NIH), the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the National Science Foundation (NSF), the National Academy of Sciences, the National Research Council, Howard Hughes Medical Institute, and the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE). The group was charged to "articulate a unified vision for the field on glycoscience and glycomics" and to "develop a roadmap with concrete research goals to significantly advance the field”.

Also in the Introduction of the book are other astounding statements under the heading, Important Facts About Glycans: Sub-heading: Health on page 15 (2): “Every disease that affects humans significantly involves glycans.

(3) “A great majority of host-pathogen interactions involve glycans, via recognition, degradation, or molecular mimicry.”

(4) “Most protein therapeutics must be glycosylated properly to be functionally effective.”

(5) “Altered glycosylation is a universal feature of cancer and contributes to pathogenesis and progression.”

Then #(6) explains where the pharmaceutical industry is headed: “Many vaccines are glycan based.”

In the months ahead, billions of dollars will be spend in developing glycan based drugs for many diseases. These glycoscience drugs will probably work better than past drugs and will probably be less toxic.

Eating Smart Sugars seems to be too easy and too simple of a solution to improve health. As an addendum to this lesson, re-read Lesson #76: Studies Show Smart Sugars More Beneficial Than Previously Thought, Plant saccharides metabolize to form glycoproteins in the human body.
