The Goldsteins (The 50 Healthiest Habits and Lifestyle Changes; Healthy Foods) provide information on everything from boron to zinc. Each entry includes food sources (the authors' preference for obtaining nutrients), supplemental sources, notes on deficiencies and excesses, and "key research findings" ("Vitamin B5 Appears To Help Moisturize the Skin"). Many studies have fewer than 1,000 participants, and the authors report study conclusions without advocating for or against.
VERDICT An additional selection for large libraries. Somewhat academic in tone, suitable for most readers, especially those delving deeper into nutritional issues.
