My first Vitamin Bible wore out. So I had to purchase a second one and it was not easy to find. It gives information on all vitamins, minerals and amino-acids. It tells you what food source contain each one, what it can help heal, the side effects, any counter actions, and what illness' are caused by a lack of these. It is so informative. You are what you eat! This book tells you what foods contain all these vitamins, minerals and amino-acids or their best source. There is no guessing as to how much to take for adults. It is not geared towards children. It also tells you what not to give to your animals. Towards the end of the book it has a special section of different occupations and a listing of most common illness and the suggested need for these occupations and illness. There is also a section on drug addition and what will help in the line of nutrients. It has been a life saver to myself and my husband.
My first copy of the Vitamin Bible was purchased in 1986, and the Vitamin Bible remains to be one of the most important titles in my bookshelves. The book is very well written and the information is presented in a style that is both useful and easy to read. I look at the Vitamin Bible (all editions) to be *the* primer for a study into orthomolecular medicine; I have recommended the book to many dozens if not hundreds of people. It is not appropriate for me to make claims about the effectiveness of nutrition (I am not a licensed doctor), but I can give my opinion that the information provided by Mindell was instrumental in saving my life plus that of others. Topics like meniere's syndrome (dizziness) might be symptomatic of a much more serious condition like pellagra, which can be fatal or easily remedied with niacin. In 1996 local doctors gave my wife six months to live; she is still alive today solely because of the information found in the Vitamin Bible and similar titles. I could very easily list numerous individuals' chronic symptoms that were quickly, easily, and inexpensively corrected through use of the information in the Vitamin Bible. Of the thousands of books that I have read in my lifetime, the Vitamin Bible stands out as being one of the most important, if not the single most important. Literally, no exaggeration, if I could only have one book in my house, it would likely be the Vitamin Bible.
