“Melatonin is the smallest hormone secreted in humans in terms of volume, but it has arguably as powerful effects as any of its more voluminous colleagues. It is a more potent anti-oxidant than any of our familiar vitamins, for example. Though first identified by Aaron Lerner in 1958, and now the object of over 20,000 peer-reviewed scientific studies, scientists are still discovering daily new and vital roles for this small but mighty indoleamine. Scientific, practitioner, and consumer interest in melatonin has never been more intense: a major international conference on childhood leukaemia in London last month, funded by the charity Children with Leukaemia (see: www.leukaemiaconference. org for papers) devoted much time to the way melatonin might benefit cancer sufferers and prevent radiation damage (radiation is the only known cause of childhood leukaemia).”
