This book is based on presentations given at the Fifth International Symposium on Nutritional Aspects of Osteoporosis held in Lausanne, Switzerland in 2003. Although an often neglected chapter of medical research, the nutritional influences on bone health was a discussed topic at this congress. Also discussed were new insights into the role of proteins, vitamins, potassium, vegetables, food acid load, mineral waters and calcium.

Industry Reviews

"...covers important aspects of nutrition and bone health...Students of nutrition and osteoporosis will find this book critical to their study." - American Journal of Clinical Nutrition (April 2005) "This book provides a general overview of the current understanding of various nutritional and hormonal elements related to the etiology and treatment of osteoporosis. The focus on clinical research makes it a useful tool for researchers in the basic sciences for understanding the current status of clinical studies, as well as a useful tool for clinical researchers for general information about areas of research outside their own." -Katie Beth Williams, BS, PhD in progress(University of Wisconsin-Madison)for DOODYS
