Book Recs for the Nutritionally-Confused
January 6, 2011 5:32 AM Subscribe
Book-rec-filter: I'm looking for a book for a friend, who has been a whole list of multivitamins, prescriptions and nutritional supplements for her condition. She is worried about several things: the effectiveness of taking all at once, whether taking them might cancel each other out, and whether the timing of taking these supplements would be an issue. Is there is a book out there that discusses this?

Yes, she has been to doctors and nutritionists, but she lives in a third-world country where doctors, while trained and "specialized", are not necessarily the best nor up-to-date with the latest developments. So she would like to do some extra reading of her own. She has no access to excellent healthcare. (I bring this up in advance because I know that some well-meaning folk will choose to say something like "What does her doctor say?" Hope everyone understands that not everyone in this world has the privilege of first-world medicine)
