Melatonin in Children and Adolescents -- examines the pineal gland and melatonin in healthy children and adolescents and reviews recent studies on serum and urine melatonin in major depression Melatonin and Neoplastic Disorders -- examines melatonin's potential as an antioxidant in cancer cells and its diagnostic and therapeutic value in oncology



The final chapter looks at the role that mindful meditation plays in increasing nocturnal serum melatonin and examines meditation's potential as an adjunct treatment for breast, prostate, and gastrointestinal tract cancers or as a preventive measure for high-risk individuals.
