To the editor: A quick perusal of the table of contents of your supplement on nutrition and blood pressure control (1) revealed a glaring mistake that is not a typographical error (see also page 828, same issue).
One of the first concepts taught in basic nutrition courses is the difference between macronutrients and micronutrients. Dietary fat, dietary protein, carbohydrates and alcohol are all macronutrients, not micronutrients as you so indicated.
