"I highly recommend this book if you want to get up to speed on the
science of micronutrient supplementation without reading an
academic tome. The authors provide reliable and current science
with clarity and in easily digestible chunks. The layout in
sections and subsections makes it easy to read, and the graphs and
charts provide summaries that will help you make personal decisions
about how supplementation can enhance your wellness program." *

His extensive research has made him one of the leading and respected authorities in the field of antioxidant use during cancer treatment." * Jeanne Drisko, M.D., CNS, FACN, director of the program in Integrative Medicine, University of Kansa *
"A useful and well-organized antidote to the mass of irresponsible information about vitamins. I applaud Dr. Prasad for providing the public with a responsible presentation." * Frank L. Meyskens Jr., M.D., director of Chao Family Comprehensive Cancer Center, University of Cali *
