The Nutrition and Health series of books have, as an overriding mission, to provide health professionals with texts that are considered essential because each includes (1) a synthesis of the state of the science; (2) timely, in-depth reviews by the leading research- ers in their respective fields; (3) extensive, up-to-date, fully annotated reference lists; (4) a detailed index; (5) relevant tab les and figures; (6) identification of paradigm shifts and the consequences; (7) virtually no overlap of information between chapters, but targeted, interchapter referrals; (8) suggestions of areas for future research; and (9) bal- anced, data-driven answers to patient /health professionals' questions that are based on the totality of evidence rather than the findings of any single study. The series volumes are not the outcome of a symposium. Rather, each editor has been asked to examine a chosen area with a broad perspective, both in subject matter as well as in the choice of chapter authors. The international perspective, especially with regard to public health initiatives, is emphasized where appropriate. The editors, whose trainings are both research- and practice-oriented, have the opportunity to develop a primary objective for their book, define the scope and focus, and then invite the leading authorities from around the world to be part of their initiative. The authors are encouraged to provide an overview of the field, discuss their own research, and relate the research findings to potential human health more

Review quote

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)show more

Back cover copy

Although the human skeleton is often taken for granted, it requires calcium and other macro- and micronutrients to maximize and maintain its size and strength. Inadequate bone nutrition produces a host of medical problems across the age spectrum, including rickets, growth retardation, osteoporosis, osteomalacia, and bone fractures. In Nutrition and Bone Health, a panel of internationally recognized bone and nutrition specialists 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 how to use bone density testing for evaluating bone health and 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 impacts on bone of calcium, sodium, potassium, phosphorus, magnesium, zinc, selenium, vitamin D, protein intake, phytoestrogens, onions, and omega fatty acids. Each fully referenced article provides balanced coverage of both scientific and clinical aspects of bone health and offers summary conclusions highlighting its major findings. In addition, the authors 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. Authoritative and cutting-edge, Nutrition and Bone Health not only illuminates how nutrition, exercise, environmental factors, and drugs affect bone health, but also serves as a critical guide for all healthcare professionals needing to apply this knowledge in their daily more
