Book Review

“The book A Biochemical View of Vitamins is a valuable source of contemporary knowledge about selected vitamins (B vitamins and  A, C, D, E, K vitamins) and their sources (fruits, vegetables and others). The reader can find information important from the pharmacological point of view, such as age-dependent body requirements, symptoms of deficiency and overdose. In addition, the authors included data on the history, places of vegetable and fruit cultivation. The book has 91 chapters. From my point of view as a reader, I must say there are numerous repetitions of data in different chapters. Probably the authors wanted to create independent chapters containing all the information so the reader would not look for it in other parts of the book. Moreover, the text is supplemented with numerous illustrations depicting the presented topics.” – Professor Zenon Czuba, Medical University of Silesia
