About this book


Calcium in Human Biology provides an authoritative review of current knowledge and points the way to further progress in the understanding of this essential nutrient. In addition to considering the established importance of an adequate dietary source of available calcium for the formation of sound bones and teeth, there is detailed discussion of the part calcium plays in a variety of aspects of human metabolism. The book is written primarily for those working in the nutritional sciences and related fields. It will also be of interest to clinicians, nutritionists, and to those interested more generally in the biological sciences, as well as to those in the important sectors of the food industry which utilise or produce dairy products and other foods significant to the supply of dietary calcium.
