Overview

The term nutraceutical - any food substance that provides health benefits - is just now making a place in the medical field. In many research projects, nutrients are given in pharmaceutical doses, not in the usual recommended daily allowances. In other investigations, folk medicine recommendations are being evaluated scientifically, and many have already been found to have a sound therapeutic basis. A Consumer's Guide to Medicines in Food lists the nutraceuticals currently being considered by researchers. Garlic is being studied for its anticancer, antibiotic properties. Milk thistle is being examined for its liver-protecting qualities. Quercetin is being investigated for its inflammation-suppressing abilities. Even green tea is the object of several major international scientific studies to determine its cancer-fighting potential. Encyclopedic in scope, this book is based on the latest scientific research.

Incl. diet & clues to cancer prevention/plants that help the heart/plants, minerals & vitamins that fight AIDS/etc.
