The role of antioxidants and other nutritional agents in disease prevention is a widely discussed subject, attracting attention from professionals in all areas of medicine. This often-debated and rapidly evolving area of medicine could have important implications for how diseases are treated.


”This is an interesting and readable minitext that achieves its goal of being directed to both laypersons and neophyte academics, although its usefulness to scientists already in the field ..would be most uniquely valuable to early students of the discipline, be they informed laypersons or students planning to enter disciplines related to nutrition and health.”

—Carroll E. Cross, Dept. of Internal Medicine,University of California, Davis
