  • Crucifers — friend or foe?
  • Your most potent weapon against heart disease may be a long-ignored and thoroughly misunderstood vitamin found in the foods in which you would least expect it!
  • Iron — oxidant or antioxidant?
  • Myths and truths about nutrient density and the critical importance of animal foods.
  • The truth about beta-carotene as a source of vitamin A: the nefarious effects in ferrets of dangerous beta-carotene supplements, the virtues of virgin palm oil, and the low-down on liver.
