    schema:reviewBody ""What are antioxidants? What do they do? Should you be taking them? How much is enough, or too much? Dr. John Smythies explores these and other questions you need to have answered about antioxidants in Every Person's Guide to Antioxidants."--BOOK JACKET. "Smythies evaluates the current scientific work on this subject in detail and suggests that a high proportion of diseases can be prevented, or their onset delayed, by proper dietary intake of antioxidants. He examines the professional debate over whether this necessary intake should be achieved by eating more fruits and vegetables in the diet or by taking supplements. Smythies surveys the toxicity of antioxidants and under what circumstances they should be given with caution or not at all. He also discusses whether medical supervision is necessary for someone planning to take supplements, and lists good sources of antioxidants in fruits and vegetables."--Jacket." ;
