By the way, I am 74 years old and have had 2 major operations for cancer. I am now in excellent health and with the help of the information in this book I intend to stay that way. D. West Sussex.
Many of us do not eat enough healthy foods. As a result of changing farming practices, including the trend towards more and more genetic modification of plants, health promoting nutrients may be lacking from the food we eat. Consequently, it has become necessary to add supplements of essential vitamins and minerals to the diet.
Dr Brewer's guide is in two parts, one describing the supplements that are available, the other offering treatments and advice for common health problems. She gives descriptions, benefits and recommended dosages based on extensive research and where applicable also offers life style suggestions.
The supplements she describes are available from some pharmacies without prescription, health food shops, many supermarkets, and mail order companies. However, the guide tells you when to be cautious about using supplements and when to take medical advice. The vitamins and minerals described are intended to promote and maintain good health and are supplements to pharmaceutical medicines.
One reason that the book is essential is that it fills a gap caused by legislation that prevents full information being given on the packaging of many supplements. This enhances its value as a source of guidance for anyone who is concerned to obtain the best effects from their daily diet.
Everyone interested in food & diet should first read this book.
