The book goes through major human life stages: fertility and pregnancy; neurological disorders; autoimmune disease; neuropsychiatric disorders; cancer and shows, citing published research spanning over 200 years, that Vitamin B12 deficiency is overlooked as a cause of misery and ill-health (and death).

How to read it
First time through, read the Case Studies. You can find them by the yellow backgrounds to the text. Get to know the people.
Then look at the Chapter Key Points. The first page of every chapter is a diagram with the key points of that chapter.
After this, read the text. And you can read any chapter and come back to the others.
Because the book is free or cost of printing, the charity is still very grateful for any donations which help with running costs.
