Handbook of Minerals as Nutritional Supplements.
CRC Press, Boca Raton, FL, has released the Handbook of Minerals as
Nutritional Supplements. Authored by Robert DiSilvestro, PhD, who is a
professor in the Department of Human Nutrition at The Ohio State
University, Columbus, OH, the handbook is the first volume in the Modern
Nutrition Science series. The handbook discusses positive and negative
interactions between mineral supplements and explores what actual
evidence exists for the need to supplement minerals in various disease
states. In addition, the handbook scrutinizes popular claims for the
value of nutritional supplements that have no direct research support.
