This collection of authoritative articles comprehensively reviews the newest clinical findings and research discoveries regarding the role of nutrition in maintaining a healthy skeleton. Topics range from the basics of nutrition and bone biology to the health effects of dietary macronutrients, minerals, and fat-soluble vitamins. The effects of life stages, race, lifestyle, and supplements are also detailed, along with data-driven discussions of the health impact on bones of calcium, sodium, potassium, phosphorus, magnesium, zinc, selenium, vitamin D, protein intake, phytoestrogens, onions, and omega fatty acids. In addition, the authors explain bone mineral density testing, establish nutritional guidelines for bone health in all ages, and make recommendations on how to maximize and maintain bone health through nutrition, exercise, and exposure to the sun.

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)
