Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
I recommend this book to professionals and patients alike who are interested in finding the underlying cause and cure of many common diseases and conditions related to deficiency of vitamin B12. —Kilmer McCully M.D., author of "The Homocysteine Revolution"

As a practicing physician I can only hope that malpractice attorneys don't read this book. —Richard Nimbach, D.O.

If you or your loved ones have health issues you can't get a handle on or you've been diagnosed for something and the standard treatment doesn't seem to work, then I say definitely pick this book up. —www.BunnyCates.com

"Could It Be B12?" is both powerful and revealing. It serves as a reminder that often times a simple precaution and nutrition awareness will save lives and a ton of money. —Charles H. Liu R.Ph., clinical pharmacist and nutrition and preventive care specialist

"Could it be B12?" has literally saved lives and is the only complete and authoritative guide to B12 deficiency and shows what you can do to protect yourself and your family from this crippling disorder. —Senior Beacon

The definitive book on B12 deficiency, diagnosis and treatment for the lay reader and for the interested physician. —Jeffrey Dach, M.D.

The most important book I have read in decades ... clearly, concisely and convincingly calls our attention to a condition that exists in epidemic numbers. This book is a must read for all doctors. —Dr. Bill Koch, The American Chiropractor magazine

Bernard Rimland
In this long-needed book, Pacholok and Stuart expose a major health-care scandal . . . [and] provide an invaluable service for medical consumers who want to protect their families and for all medical care providers who truly care about their patients. An important, highly recommended contribution.
Kilmer McCully
Sally Pacholok and Jeffrey Stuart are to be congratulated for calling attention to this common disorder that affects a significant proportion of the population, particularly among the elderly . . . I recommend this book to professionals and patients alike.
MD Jeffrey Dach
This is the definitive book on B12 deficiency, diagnosis, and treatment for the lay reader and for the interested physician. As a result of reading this book, I now routinely test serum B12 and Urinary MMA on ALL patients, and have been surprised to find many symptomatic B12-deficient patients completely missed by the medical system.
Eric Norman
I defy you to read this book then not get yourself or a loved one tested for B12 deficiency.
