The importance of vitamins to health is undisputed. But millions of Americans believe that the vitamins they get in their food are not enough. Vitamin supp. have become a multibillion-dollar industry. At the same time, many scientists, consumer advocacy groups, & the FDA doubt that most people need to take vitamin pills. Here, Apple examines the claims & counterclaims of scientists, mfrs., retailers, politicians, & consumers from the discovery of vitamins in the early 20th cent. to the present. She reveals the complicated interests -- scientific, professional, financial -- that have propelled the vitamin industry & its would-be regulators. She documents how consumers have insisted on their right to make their own decisions abut their health & their vitamins. Illustrations.
