Hi – in terms of the idea that there are many more micronutrients in whole plant foods than we usually think (beyond
the familiar vitamins and minerals), does anyone have an idea about how many micronutrients have been identified so far?
I’ve heard the figure about potentially 10,000 (most unidentified so far), but if most are unidentified, how can we guess
about how many there are? Thanks for your help!

This is a concept well documented in the Joel Fuhrman books. They are called phytochemicals. There is a book called An
Evidence-based approach to phytochemicals by Jane Higdon, PhD. She was a phenomenal nutritional scientist who died hit by
car shortly after publishing her book. Sad story. Great book for serious students of plant based nutrition.
