Thorson's Complete Guide to Vitamins and Minerals is an absolute essential for anyone with an interest in diet and nutrition and is as equally important as a handbook for health care professionals as it is for the layman. Symptoms and the nutritional requirements for their treatment are presented in a simple A-Z format which makes referencing quick and easy and the deeper content in specific areas helps to clarify more complex issues. This allows the reader to make clear judgements, particularly when advice is needed on how to safely and successfully combine supplements with prescription drugs.
The author Leonard Mervyn, an experienced clinical biochemist and Fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry, introduces the book with a clear and positive attitude to overall health, pointing out that Mother Nature provided us with the perfect balance of foods to provide us with all the essential nutrients mankind's arrogant attitude towards food production has demeaned what nature provided, leaving us open to the imbalances that damage our bodies and minds.
Never preachy, just purely factual, Thorson's Complete Guide to Vitamins and Minerals deserves a place on every bookshelf. --Susan HarrisonFrom the Back Cover:
