About the Book

Dr. Arturo Solis Herrera found out about melanin’s ability to convert light energy into chemical energy. He also discovered its skill in modifying a water molecule while investigating on the three main culprits behind blindness back in 1990. Although the concept of photosynthesis was solely associated with plants, Dr. Solis concluded that it is possible in humans as well.
