Each chapter includes information from the most up-to-date research on how nutritional factors can affect bone health, written with an evidence-based focus and complete with comprehensive references for each subject. Nutrition and Bone Health, second edition covers all aspects of nutrition and the skeleton, from the history and fundamentals, to the effects of macronutrients, minerals, vitamins, and supplements, and even covers the effects of lifestyle, the different life stages, and nutrition-related disorders and secondary osteoporosis. Hot topics include the vitamin K story, nutraceuticals and new information about biomechanics of bone. New chapters include HIV & AIDs and the skeleton, celiac disease and bone health, and nutrition and bone health in space.
