I want to clarify one thing - the author IS, in fact, a doctor (chiropractor), ALSO a "BOARD-CERTIFIED dietician and nutritionist and a diplomate of the American Board of Clinical Nutrition" (back cover of book). SO, with this in mind it is clearly evident the author is much more knowledgable of vitamins and minerals than us. Besides, if we know as much as the author, why would we read this book? Also, if one is studying nutrition, WHY use this book as study material, it is a "Complete Idiot's Guide" book for crying out loud. I am totally aware that every dietician and doctor will have varying views on what is right and wrong, but I bought this book TO FIND OUT FACTS ABOUT VITAMINS AND MINERALS. If you are looking for a collegiate level book regarding vitamins/minerals dieting, shop elsewhere.
The author does point out that some vitamins and minerals can only be found in animal proteins. This I believe, is what ruffles everyone's feathers that are vegans. Again, I'd suggest looking for nutrition books specifically written for vegans and vegetarians if this is going to irritate you, as the author DOES often suggest that some vitamin/mineral deficiencies MAY be due to a vegan diet. Don't shoot me, I'm just the messenger here.
If you want to know WHAT vitamins and minerals do,
WHERE they can be found in foods,
WHY they are beneficial,
HOW they function in our body
then READ THIS BOOK!!
It is an easy read that I finished in four evenings and learned a lot from a DOCTOR/DIETICIAN! And it only cost me the price of this book.
