How to Live Longer and Feel Better

Copyright 2006, Oregon State University Press ISBN 978-0870710964

by Dr. Linus Pauling

First published in 1986, this is the twentieth anniversary edition.

From the Introduction: "This book discusses some simple and inexpensive measures that you can take to lead a better and longer life, with greater enjoyment and fewer illnesses.  The most important recommendation is that some vitamins be taken every day to supplement the vitamins that you get in your food.  The best amounts of the supplementary vitamins and the best way to take them are discussed in the first chapters of the book, and the reasons for taking them are discussed in the following chapters."

This is the book that captivated me about nutrition.  Dr. Pauling states his case clearly and most convincingly in a very easy to read style.  My top recommendation.

Please read my full review here.

Carlton Fredericks' New Low Blood Sugar and You

Copyright 1985, Perigee  ISBN 0399510877

by Carlton Fredericks

Frederickís is a leading authority on nutrition.  His books make a lot of sense and are easy to read.  This one discusses the severe problems associated with refined sugar and how our tremendous consumption leads to hypoglycemia.  Refined sugar is, in my opinion, the most important food for most everyone to restrict their consumption.
