Description

This book is an authoritative and comprehensive reference work on the role of nutrition in the development and maintenance of skeletal health. It encompasses the fundamentals of bone development and their biomedical consequences. Eighteen contributions are grouped into five parts: Bone Development and Aging; Nutritional Problems in Mineral Metabolism; Protein, Carbohydrate and Lipids; Trace Elements and Metabolic Bone Disease; and Archaeological Diets and Health. Discussed within this framework of development and aging are the growth and endocrine disturbances associated with undernutrition and the variable composition of infant formulae. The impact of proteins, carbohydrates, lipids, vitamins, magnesium and trace elements on the normal and pathophysiology of bone matrix synthesis, mineral metabolism, osteoporesis and fractures are considered. The text is also rich in often-overlooked lessons from archaeological research on dietary specializations.show more
