Prevention, America's #1 Choice for Healthy Living, is the single most popular health magazine in the country and is the third most trusted source for health advice in the country, trailing only the doctor and pharmacist in authority.From Publishers Weekly:
Fans of Prevention magazine, familiar with its enthusiasm for nutritional supplements, will probably welcome having its suggestions handy in a single volume. Brief descriptions of 16 minerals, seven trace minerals and seven vitamins give for each an official Daily Value (if known; otherwise, the Estimated Safe and Adequate Daily Dietary Intake), as well as good food sources of the nutrient and advice on using it safely. Oddly, zinc is with the vitamins, not with the other minerals. Next is a catalogue of health problems from Age Spots to Yeast Infections, with some entries rather lengthy (Osteoporosis runs a dozen pages). In general, the editors take a fairly conservative approach, citing research studies and noting when findings are preliminary or merely suggest that a given nutrient may be effective. Each entry features a table listing specific amounts of recommended "healing" nutrients, but whose recommendations these are is unclear. Vague expressions such as "some experts" and "some doctors" are used repeatedly, making the tables' value questionable. For getting a fuller picture, the text is essential.
