Booklist Review

Selenium move over. You were the trace mineral of the 1980s, but now there's chromium, touted to allow users to increase energy, build muscle, and cut cholesterol. Doesn't it figure that a mineral this good would be found mainly in brewer's yeast? All this news is presented here with the kind of enthusiasm one expects in a diet book. Fisher lays out a whole program complete with exercises and recipes (stir-fried chicken with chromium-rich vegetables) designed to get the mineral working for those ready to move beyond vitamins. Actually, the recipes seem tasty and easy to prepare, and the exercises don't appear that difficult. The wonders of chromium notwithstanding, Fisher, an M.D. who has done extensive research into nutrition, offers solid advice on personal health care. More to the point, though, this how-to is out of the starting blocks early, and that will please all those who want to be the first on their block to try chromium.
