Nutrition researchers review the scientific evidence for vitamin intake based on functions beyond the classic deficiencies. Aiming to elaborate guidelines for vitamin intake in individuals, with an emphasis on single or combinations of vitamins which may help prevent or reduce risk of chronic disease, the volume's 20 contributions include discussion of vitamin intake standards in the US, Canada, and EU; evidence for vitamin functions beyond recommended dietary allowances (RDAs); antioxidant vitamins; vitamins and immunocompetence; and emerging scientific evidence concerning the effects of the intake of various vitamins. Includes five working group discussions of important areas of research. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
