If the world of holistic healthcare cut its teeth on one publication, this was it. From the 1930s through the 1950s, doctors received the latest word in nutrition and nutritional therapy from Dr. Royal Lee’s seminal newsletter, Vitamin News. Lee, as the periodical’s editor and chief writer, discussed important issues of nutritional metabolism and nutrient function and gave the naturalist physician real tools with which to counter the symptoms of starvation. “Since 1930,” he wrote in 1942, “the Vitamin Products Company [now Standard Process, Inc.] has been accumulating clinical information as to the unexpected extent of vitamin deficiency diseases, and we have felt a definite moral obligation to pass this information on to such physicians as may be interested.”
While many issues of Vitamin News had gone missing over the years, this treasured collection includes them all, unabridged, in a single, fully-indexed volume. Ordered chronologically, the almost 400 pages of articles gather strength as years of researching and reporting crystallize in Dr. Lee’s mind, his case for nutritional therapeutics emerging from all areas of health into a masterpiece of scientific investigation and interpretation. You’ll never stop reading.
