4. Micronutrients: Vitamins, Minerals, and Phytochemicals

Bruce W. Perry O'Reilly Media ePub

Tiny components can have huge effects. Even if youre not a weather scientist who embraces Chaos Theory (the flutter of a butterflys wings in Mexico changes weather patterns in America), you know a computer chip the size of a fingertip can contain millions of invisible gates, and the loss of that chip means that the seven-million-pixel Photoshop montage youve been working on for that DVD cover just vanished forever.

A seemingly innocuous glitch can bring down software programs comprising hundreds of thousands of code lines. Ever heard of that impossible-to-find divide by zero bug? Just because something is small doesnt mean that its influence isnt giant. Such is the case with the micronutrients in our diet.

Vitamins schmitamins, you might say.

All you have to know is that the continuous deprivation of really tiny amounts of vitamins B1 (thiamine) and B3 (niacin) can give you nasty, potentially fatal diseases called beriberi and pellagra, respectively. These diseases have been very common throughout human history.1 And these vitamins are recommended only in the micrograms per day.2

Waller, by Nature for the Bays designed,
