In Nutrition and Bone Health, a panel of internationally recognized bone and  Read more...

    schema:description "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 practice."@en ;
