Nutritional Aspects of Osteoporosis, Second Edition presents new insights into the role of proteins, vitamins, potassium, vegetables, the acid load by food, mineral waters, and calcium. Nutritional influences on bone health, an often neglected chapter of medical research, is thoroughly covered in this book. Chapters discuss the consensus on the right dose of Vitamin D, the long-term influence of calcium on the growth of children, how specific substances in vegetables inhibit bone resorption, and that while Vitamin Kappears to be essential, Vitamin A can be deleterious.
