I first read this book in the '70's and keep giving them away and buying "new" used ones. As a scientist and engineer, I appreciated Schroeder's thorough research and analysis. His work directly led to the inclusion of chromium and selenium in high-quality multivitamins. This is a must-read for anyone interested in real nutrition science, including your doctor.

There is a surprising lack of information about this book. When someone is browsing a book on Amazon, there is usually a summary of the book and an 'About the Author' section. Hopefully after this review Amazon will update this information. Quoted from the book jacket, here it is:

" It is Dr. Schroeder's thesis that life originated in the sea, and when animals - including man - became terrestrial, they brought with them a necessity for those trace elements which occur naturally in sea water. These elements, generally present in minute amounts, are essential for normal metabolism. They include chromium, iodine, copper, cobalt, zinc, manganese, and a few others which are discussed in this breakthrough book.
Dr. Schroeder further contends that certain other elements, "locked in" to the earth's crust for the most part, have in recent years been released by industrial man into the atmosphere and the environment generally. These - cadmium, lead and mercury especially - are having an adverse effect on human health and human life.
Unlike vitamins, which are synthesized plants and animals, minerals - of equal or even greater importance - must come from outside; and failing to provide them in our diets can lead to trouble. Chromium deficiency, for instance, is revealed as a prime cause of the nation's number one killer: atherosclerosis. A faulty diet fails to provide this, as well as other essential trace elements.
The fastest way to develop atherosclerosis, Dr. Schroeder suggests, is to drink coffee all day with three of four spoonfuls of sugar, plus cream; use marmalades and jams on breakfast toast, with white sugar thickly sprinkled on processed breakfast foods; eat a couple of ham sandwiches on white bread for lunch, followed by a slab of pie; and for dinner, large portions of pork with rich gravies, deep-fried potatoes, and a lemon meringue pie for dessert.
Dr. Schroeder has become a world authority in the little known field of the trace elements as they relate to living organisms. His findings are the result of years of experimenting at the unique Dartmouth Medical School Trace Element Laboratory in Brattleboro, Vermont. He is the author of seven books, including A Matter of Choice, and Pollution, Profits and Progress.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Henry A. Schroeder, M.D. is one of this country's most distinguished scientists. His first major contribution was the development of a low-sodium diet, so widely used today for heart conditions. He investigated the causes of hypertension (high blood pressure) from 1937 to 1956, and developed the first effective drug treatment, proving that many severe cases were reversible. As a result, mortality from this cause has been quartered in the past 25 years.
After making experiments on humans for trace elements analyses in the Orient and Middle East, Dr. Schroeder established the metal-free, environmentally controlled Trace Element Laboratory in 1960 on a remote hill in Vermont. In the same year he was vice-chairman of the first World Health Organization symposium held in Prague, Czechoslovakia. His George Brown Memorial Lecture to the American Heart Association in 1966 brought worldwide headlines for its new approaches to the causes of heart disease.
One of three developers of the regulation aviator's anti-blackout suit, Schroeder established standards for aircraft seats and harness to prevent injury from crashes. He also advised on construction of the world's largest human centrifuge, and set standards for the astronauts' space suits. Long before Sputnik he was a consultant on problems to be encountered in space flight.
Dr. Schroeder took his degrees at Yale and Columbia, and holds an honorary M.A. from Dartmouth. He is Profess of Physiology Emeritus at Dartmouth Medical School, and Director of Research at Brattleboro Memorial Hospital. Born in Short Hills, New Jersey, he has lived in New York City, St. Louis, and Washington, D.C. He has written seven books and hundreds of scientific papers and abstracts."

Now I can begin my review. Why 3 stars? Well, because a book that makes such gigantic claims should be able to back them up with data. Unfortunately, this book has no references. ZERO. If you want to look up the studies that Schroeder has based his claims on, you can't! Because they aren't listed. The only mention is in the preface, which says: "I am indebted to the scientists, few in number, who have devoted their interests to studies of trace elements, and especially to those who have pioneered in the subject. Among them are Isabel H. Tipton (all elements), Harriet L. Hardy (beryllium), George L. Curran (vanadium and chromium), Walter Mertz (chromium), George C. Cotzias (manganese), I. Herbert Scheinberg (copper), Bert L. Vallee (zinc), E. J. Underwood (animal nutrition), G. Monier Williams (elements in food), Clair C. Patterson (lead) and G. Parry Howells (who provided me with her exhaustive survey of all elements, intake, metabolism and excretion, in Standard Man, from which much of the data have been abstracted). I am particularly indebted to our sponsors, the National Institutes of Health, through whom so many tax dollars flow."

The main point of the book is that processed foods (white flour, white rice, pure sugar, white bread, and pasta) lack important trace elements - that have been stripped out during processing - and are therefore unhealthy and should be avoided. I completely agree. The high cost of this book is due to supply and demand, and not because of the information it contains inside, which I think everyone has already known (processed foods are unhealthy) for a long time.
