  GALACTOSE  LACTOSE  are among the family of
  SWEET TASTING CARBOHYDRATES or SUGARS

       sp AZUCAR    same
       fr  SUCRE    same
  sc> biol> see> LACTOSE and SUCROSE are

  more below after
  sc> biol> GALACTOSE is a MONOSACCHARIDE
            ONE 6 CARBON SUGAR and is
  LESS SWEET THAN GLUCOSE
  also known as LEVULOSE of MILK SUGAR
  IS FOUND IN DISACCHARIDES in MILK or other
  LIPID CONTAINING CARBOHYDRATES MAINLY
  FOUND IN THE NERVOUS SYSTEM
  sc> biol> GLUCOSE a MONOSACCHARIDE also known as
            DEXTROSE  GRAPE SUGAR or CORN SUGAR
  like GALACTOSE it also is a 6 CARBON CHAIN
  more sweet than GALACTOSE
  MADE BY PHOTOSYNTHESIS by PLANTS and found in
  FRUITS and HONEY and is a
  GLUCOSE IS A MAJOR CELLULAR ENERGY SOURCE
  regulated by INSULIN
  stored as POLYSCCHARIDE CHAINS like
  CELLULOSE  GLYCOGEN and STARCH
  sc> biol> LACTOSE is a DISACCHARIDE
            FOUND IN MILK ANT OTHER CARBOHYDRATES
  consists of ONE GALACTOSE and ONE GLUCOSE
  med> nearly 8% of Europeans lack LACTASE and
       milk induces DIARRHEA in them
  sc> biol> SUCROSE or SUGAR and
            LACTOSE or MILK SUGAR are
  ISOMERIC or CHEMICALLY IDENTICAL except for
  ISO denoting that the molecules are
  arranged in SPACE as MIRROR IMAGES of each other
  as are THE LEFT and RIGHT HANDS which also are ISOMERIC
  SUCROSE is found in BEETS SUGAR CANE and MAPLE SAP
  note LACTOSE or C12  H12 011 is found in MILK
       UPON HYDROLISIS or mixing with water dissolves into
       GALACTOSE and GLUCOSE becomes
       both being C6  H12 02
  note SUCROSE upon hydrolysis becomes
       FRUCTOSE and GLUCOSE
  note DEXTROSE for GLUCOSE and
       LEVULOSE for FRUCTOSE denote
  DEXTROROTARY in contrast to LEVOROTARY
  meaning that when L PASTEUR [#] shone LIGHT
  a solution of DEXTROSE deviated light to the RIGHT
                LEVULOSE                       LEFT
  note ukr      LIVO for LEFT
  PASTEUR [#] was investigating sug> FERMENTATION
  note FERMENT implies DEGRADATION OF
       MONOSACCHARIDES into HEAT thus ENERGY and
  ALCOHOL or VINEGAR and CARBON DIOXIDE

  note CLASSIC TYPE AFFECTS NEONATES
       IT IS SEVERE AND MAY BE FATAL CAUSING
  VOMITING  DIARRHEA and JAUNDICE
  FAIL TO THRIVE  NOT GAIN WEIGHT AND
  SHOW SIGNS OF MALNUTRITION
  IT CAUSES HEPATOMEGALY or LARGE LIVER

  CATARACTS or OPACITY OF THE OCULAR LENS
  MENTAL RETARDATION    sug> OLIGOPHRENIA
  THIS FORM IS DUE TO TRANSFERASE DEFECT
  note CHILDHOOD FORM WHICH IS LESS SEVERE
       ITS LANDMARK IS CATARACTS IN INFANCY
  THIS FORM IS DUE TO A KINASE DEFICIENCY
  note THIRD FORM is mostly "BENIGN"
       manifested as ELEVATED BLOOD GALACTOSE
  CAUSED BY AN EPIMERASE DEFICIENCY
