About the Author
Dr. Ken Biegeleisen attended Cornell University and the New York University School of Medicine, graduating from the MD-PhD program in 1978. His PhD is in Molecular Biology. He has achieved distinction in several fields, including medicine, molecular biology, religion and music.
'Whoever You Thought You Were…You’re A Jew!' has been called the 'Star of Hope for all Humankind'. It has already been translated in Japanese, and a video version of Chapter 10, 'The Question of Race', has 'gone viral' on utube, generating about a million 'hits' to date!
In medicine, Dr. Biegeleisen is known as a practitioner of Phlebology, the art and science of treating diseases of the veins. His family has occupied a prominent position in this field for nearly a century. In his youth, he had no attraction to medicine other than family pressure, and he entered the field with great reluctance. He nevertheless managed to achieve significant advances. He organized the nation’s Phlebologists into a medical society, which has now evolved into the American College of Phlebology, the primary certifying board for venous diseases. He also pioneered the treatment of vein diseases by fiberoptic catheter-based instruments, now considered the treatment of choice, and used in virtually every hospital in the civilized world.
As a molecular biologist, Dr. Biegeleisen has been involved in DNA research for over 40 years (see www.NotAHelix.net). His recent publication of the structure of the Protamine-DNA complex has proven that the world-famous DNA 'double helix' is not necessarily the structure of DNA in all living systems. In fact, it may turn out that most DNA inside cells has a non-helical structure. He has now shown that this same non-helical structure may also apply to DNA in association with proteins called 'histones', which are invariably present in the nuclei of all higher cells.
In addition to having written several other books, and quite a bit of music in various styles, Dr. Biegeleisen has served as a Baal Koree (Torah reader) in synagogues for many years, and has become proficient in reading all three extant Semitic languages: Hebrew, Arabic and Amharic (the language of Ethiopia). He is thus able to read the Bible and Qur’an in the original tongues, freeing himself from the occasionally misleading antics of translators.
