Miscellaneous Aspects of Iron Metabolism
The preceding chapters have amply demonstrated the crucial role that iron plays in the process of life. These chapters have dealt with a number of topics which have received much attention from biomedical researchers and are especially important in human health and disease. A number of subjects dealing with nonheme iron have not been mentioned in this volume, and this chapter is designed to survey such areas, where a considerable body of knowledge is available.
