Most of us know nothing about vitamins What's what we think we know is harming both our personal nutrition and our national health By focusing on vitamins at the expense of everything else we've become blind to the b. Got this from FirstReads for an honest reviewI really enjoyed this well researched and well written book by Catherine Price If you re looking for some amazing nutritional advice that will change your world and save your life this isn t it Her advice is don t isolate your micronutrients eat real food not processed Not exactly new advice But that wasn t what she set out to doPrice answers a lot of basic uestions about vitamins What are these things What do they do for us How were they discovered How do they show up in our lives now in our foods and elsewhere She also takes a few chapters to take a look at the supplement industry an industry she claims rightfully so I think the very idea of vitamins gave birth to Without the idea of micronutrients that do unexpected things for our health the supplement industry wouldn t exist But she takes the time to explain that the supplement industry is unregulated for the most part examine the political history of why that is how it came to be and the conseuences of the lack of oversight The supplement industry part of this book included details I hadn t known before even though I knew some of the basic facts and I appreciate learning about that historyThe most interesting and new part of the book for me was near the end when Price discusses the unknowns of nutrition as they stand today There s a heck of a lot we don t know She gives some examples of how we know that our knowledge is incomplete which I relished For example an apple s antioxidant activity is far higher than is possible with the antioxidants we ve isolated and analyzed from the apple So there s going on there than we know of Whole foods include nutrients molecules and interactions that are still far beyond our understanding We do know that fruits and vegetables and meat are good for us and we know that what they do as whole foods is greater than the sum of the parts we ve figured out So we should keep eating whole foods and not rely on pills for our nutritionIn the end it s an easy chatty read with good info even if there are no earth shattering new truths in here Basically Price is telling us that there s a lot we don t know and we should get comfortable with our uncertainty and not pretend that we have it all figured out and take our pills Good central thesis reasonable arguments

    When I first read the description for this book I had mixed expectations For some reason the word vitamin caused red flags to go up in my mind and interestingly enough by the time I finished reading the book actually helped me to establish a better understanding of why that word can have that effect on me and many others

    This is an eye opening book about our relationship with vitamins and how their discovery influenced our nutritional thinking over the past 100 years It is a book that covers history science politics marketing and misinformation surrounding the vitamin and supplement industryAuthor Catherine Price begins with the history of vitamins how they were named their discovery and the diseases that result from vitamin deficiencies She then details

    It's always fun to read a book that shares your values but this does It brings to light the science of nutrition it's relative immaturity to other sciences and the bastardization of health claims and reports prompted by the magical word
