Vitamania E–pub READ

Retraite sur le Cantique des Cantiques: Commentaires bibliques (Spiritualité) (French Edition) hGot this from FirstReads for anonest 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 answers a lot of basic uestions about vitamins What 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 ealth 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 istory of why that is The Elusive Heiress Nancy Drew how it came to be and the conseuences of the lack of oversight The supplement industry part of this book included details Iadn t known before even though I knew some of the basic facts and I appreciate learning about that Pizarro and the Conuest of Peru 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 aeck of a lot we don t know She gives some examples of Are You There God? It's Me M how we know that our knowledge is incomplete which I relished For example an apple s antioxidant activity is farigher 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 still far beyond our understanding We do know that fruits 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 ere 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 ave it all figured out and " not pretend that we ave it all figured out and our pills Good central thesis reasonable arguments The subject of vitamins is one that you do not see being tackled that often nowadays and thus one could leave from the same premise that I previously did that all vitamins must be good for our ealthBrilliant pieces of information are being posted as we go along with the reading such as the source of synthetic vitamin D that A cristalli liquidi (Italian Edition) humans cannot make their own vitamin C and probably most notably being the fact that vitamins as dietary supplements are not reuired to be tested for safety or efficacy before being sold The latter should raise uite a number of uestions by nowThe secondalf of the book introduces an interesting term phytochemicals In short we are being informed about the vitamins and their synergy when eating whole foods Substances are being shown to be working differently when they are together than they do when they are on their own Researches are still underway and you could probably understand why such a delicate matter is rather slow in showing new result. Most of us know nothing about vitamins What's what we think we know is I've Got a Home in Glory Land: A Lost Tale of the Underground Railroad harming both our personal nutrition and our nationalealth By focusing on vitamins at the expense of everything else we've become blind to the VitamaniaS as it is not In The Interest Of Business the interest of business book as given me a lot to consider I thought I knew a lot about ealth and vitamins and now I see there are some things I missed This is an eye opening book about our relationship with vitamins and ow their discovery influenced our nutritional thinking over the past 100 years It is a book that covers Lonestar Sanctuary history science politics marketing and misinformation surrounding the vitamin and supplement industryAuthor Catherine Price begins with theistory of vitamins Trust Me, I'm Lying: Confessions of a Media Manipulator how they were named their discovery and the diseases that result from vitamin deficiencies She then details the political and regulatory battles in the US between the vitamin industry and the Food and Drug Administration FDA and covers important pieces of legislation regarding the minimal regulatory oversight of vitamins As price broadens the scope ofer book she moves on to the wider supplement industry other plant products and phytochemicals Near the end the author explains the field of nutritional genomics the relationship between nutrition and genes and discusses the current unknowns of nutrition Nutrition is a very complex subject and there s a lot yet to be figured out about the relationship between nutrition and ealth This book clearly depicts the extent of this complexity and conveys our lack of knowledge about what exactly vitamins do in our bodies and the difficulty in understanding the synergy between substances found in natural food and imitating this synergy into synthetic pills and supplements Because of this the book will leave you with uestions than answers In an engaging storytelling style the author combines istory and science and narrates Desperate (Bad Baker Boys, her encounters and vis First I received an ARC copy of this e book for my enjoyment and review from First To ReadPenguin Random HouseBeing aealth care professional RN Nurse Practitioner and long distance runner I found this title intriguing and looked forward to this author s experience and opinionFirst and foremost I found this author to be very credible not only with Biocentrismo.
