The world's leading bone and mineral researchers have teamed up with noted nutrition specialists to author this outstanding treatise on nutritional aspects in bone health. They cover everything from nutritional assessment of the relations between nutrients and bone health to nutritional requirements for good bone health. Childhood nutrition as well as elderly nutrition are covered in depth, with additional chapters on the nutritional aspects of osteoporosis. Leading authorities including Clifford J. Rosen, MD and Lawrence G. Raisz, MD, along with many other noted researchers, provide, in one major reference, the entire spectrum of topics on how nutrition plays a critically important role for bone health from birth until death.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

From the reviews:

"A book for every medical library." - Pediatric Endocrinology Reviews

"Nutrition and Bone Health is a comprehensive book, containing 36 chapters … . Sixty-seven contributors from 10 countries participated in crafting the information in this thorough work. I particularly appreciated the chapters being divided into numbered sub-headings. This made it easy to take notes and locate material. … There is much in this sweeping work that will appeal to the nutritional gerontologist or geriatrician. … There is something in this reference for all health professionals, even policymakers." (Joseph M. Carlin, Journal of Nutrition for the Elderly, May, 2006)
