Excerpt from The Oxford Medicine, Vol. 1
In the following pages we will discuss the vitamins, in which the practicing physician will be particularly interested, the four fat-soluble vitamins A, D, E, and K, the four water-soluble vitamins, C, (ascorbic acid) and B (thiamin, nicotinic acid amide and riboﬂavin) and folic acid. Each of the sections has been written as a separate unit concerned only with one of these Vitamins and its corresponding disease. Theories have been discussed as little as possible, and all the material is presented with as little prejudice as strong personal opinions allow.
