Overview

This handbook provides a comprehensive presentation and interpretation of the current status of research on various mineral supplements. The author discusses the science behind each of the major minerals, the current research on the mineral's ability to correct a deficiency in health and in sickness, and some of the popular claims made about the mineral. This book is the first book written by a university mineral researcher specifically for the biomedical research and professional health care community. Technical enough to satisfy a biomedical audience, the information avoids jargon used just by mineral specialists. Each chapter is set up with the same sub-headings, so that quick retrieval of information is easy.
