In recent years, there has been an explosion of interest about the use of `antioxidant' nutritional supplements. Do they really defend the body against diseases? Should we all be taking vitamin E, vitamin C, or more of certain polyunsaturated fats? Written by two leading experts in the field of free radicals in biology and medicine, this book unravels the confusion caused by many nutrition-related claims, and clarifies the situation over whether maintaining high intakes of vitamins, minerals, and other food consituents really does help protect against life-threatening diseases.

MEDIA REVIEWS
comprehensive, in-depth ... aimed at the more specialist reader * New Scientist, 2 December 1995 *
This is a concise and timely review of a controversial and potentially important topic ... The bibliography is filled with seminal articles that provide an excellent resource for those wishing to read further ... the book managed to cover most of the important areas of biologically relevant, oxidant stress, and did so in an entertaining, easily digestible and practical way. I would recommend it. * Clive Davis, Annals RCPSC, Vol. 29, No. 3, April 1996 *
