More than seventy-five years ago, medical scientists declared magnesium to be an essential nutrient, indispensable to life. When this mineral is part of your diet, you are guarding against--and helping to alleviate--health threats such as heart disease, stroke, osteoporosis, diabetes, depression, arthritis, and asthma. But while research continues to reaffirm magnesium's irreplaceable contribution to good health, many Americans remain dangerously deficient. Dr. Carolyn Dean explains the vital role that magnesium plays in the control of many serious ailments--from painful muscle spasms and bladder problems to traumatic brain injury and complications of pregnancy and childbirth

This book was a disappointment. The first half is a list of medical conditions caused by magnesium deficiency. There is almost no explanation of WHY magnesium is necessary to prevent these diseases, and I noticed a few egregious errors that made me suspicious of other "facts" in this book. For example the author asserts that pyruvic acid is a "toxic product" of an inability to digest sugar - but as any biochem 101 student knows, pyruvic acid is a crucial part of the Krebs cycle to produces energy for all living cells.
