I find this audiobook filled with intriguing and useful information. It's rather comprehensive, from the discovery of the vitamins, the related benefit and illnesses, and our current obsession with fortified food.
Early on in the book it mentioned that almost of the synthetic vitamins we ingest in the U.S. was manufactured in China. As companies in the U.S. import and blend these ingredients together to create their own brand of multi-vitamins and supplements, few people knew of the source. I find this rather disturbing, consider the industrial pollution, lack of supervision and regulation, and the commonplace food adulteration that goes on over there. All the more reason not to pop those pills but focus on a varied and healthy diet instead!

A comprehensive history of vitamins from before they were even theorized and named to current uses and efficacy. It's a long book, full of details, but much more interesting than you'd think.
