What’s New — Vitamins and Minerals

  • Louis V. Avioli


A detailed, unbiased analysis of publications relating to “vitamin and mineral metabolism” could result only in an exhaustive, rambling potpourri of seemingly unrelated notes and comments. Advances in divalent ionic control of membrane transport, enzymatic activity, and hormonal synthesis and release are detailed elsewhere in this volume. Similarly, publications concerned with disorders of mineral metabolism and excretion and their relationship to human nutrition, growth, and the formation of renal calculi are reviewed in Chapter 11. In 1975, considerable efforts were expended to evaluate the effectiveness of vitamin C in preventing the common cold. Many significant advances were also made with respect to the metabolism, molecular response, and biological activity of vitamin D metabolites. For the sake of completion and uniformity, therefore, only these advances will be emphasized and reviewed in detail this year.
