Death in Small Doses?: Antioxidant Vitamins A, C and E in the Twenty-first Century
If you are taking an antioxidant or an antioxidant vitamin, or are thinking of going on antioxidants, consider the information in this fully referenced guide before you do. The undeniable legacy of antioxidant vitamin use at today's high doses is an assemblage of confusing and conflicting studies and reports of bad side effects in hordes of unsuspecting victims. Only by knowing this information, reviewed in consultation with your healthcare professional, can you make an informed decision about your healthcare. If you are a user of antioxidant vitamins A, C or E, or multivitamins, this book contains vital information for you.
Most of the antioxidant side effects discussed are likely unknown to your busy doctor. Although they are knowledgeable about routine medical problems, few have heard of increased risks for cancer, heart disease, and strokes caused by use of these vitamins; fewer still associate increased mortality with antioxidants. As a surgeon, medical research scientist, biochemist and practicing doctor, Dr. Howes is appalled by the lack of information in the medical community on the full range of side effects of the antioxidant vitamins. "Antioxidant Vitamins A, C, and E in the Twenty-first Century" offers a selective reference source and summary demonstrating the ineffectiveness and adverse side effects of the antioxidant vitamins A, C, and E.
