Do you take your vitamins only when they occur to you? Are you unlikely to remember to bring your calcium with you for the day or to take your iron supplements in a way that will allow for the best absorption?
If you are going to be zealot about anything, your vitamins and supplements are one of the best things you can choose. Unless you meet someone with a deficiency, or you develop one yourself, you may not realize how horrible one can be—or how permanent the damage. (pg. 313)

Do You Know Your BMI?
BMI is a dependable indicator of total body fat, which is related to the risk of disease and death. The score is legitimate for men and women but it does have some limits. It may overestimate body fat in athletes and others who have a muscular build and it may underestimate body fat in older persons who have lost muscle mass.
