Sufficient intake of elements from aluminum to zinc may be as crucial as getting the Recommended Dietary Allowances of vitamins. These 21 contributed chapters represent not only growing recognition of the importance of nutrition science for its impact on health and policy, but also a paradigm shift (closer to alternative medicine!) in thinking about the relationship between mineral nutrition and chronic disease (e.g. heart disease, HIV/AIDS). Sections address basic concepts, consumption, deficiency, and toxicity; and trace element and mineral nutrition in health, and in disease groups. A list of recent books and journals on the subject is appended. Bogden is a professor of preventive medicine and community health at the New Jersey Medical School, Newark. Klevay is with the USDA Agricultural Research Service's Grand Forks (ND) Human Nutrition Research Center. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (

The Nutrition and Health series of books have, as an overriding mission, to provide health professionals with texts that are considered essential because each includes 1) a synthesis of the state of the science, 2) timely, in-depth reviews by the leading researchers in their respective fields, 3) extensive, up-to-date fully annotated reference lists, 4) a detailed index, 5) relevant tables and figures, 6) identification of paradigm shifts and the consequences, 7) virtually no overlap of information between chapters, but targeted, inter-chapter referrals, 8) suggestions of areas for future research, and 9) bal­ anced, data-driven answers to patient questions which are based upon the totality of evidence rather than the findings of any single study. The series volumes are not the outcome of a symposium. Rather, each editor has the potential to examine a chosen area with a broad perspective, both in subject matter as well as in the choice of chapter authors. The international perspective, especially with regard to public health initiatives, is emphasized where appropriate. The editors, whose trainings are both research and practice oriented, have the opportunity to develop a primary objec­ tive for their book; define the scope and focus, and then invite the leading authorities from around the world to be part of their initiative. The authors are encouraged to provide an overview of the field, discuss their own research and relate the research findings to potential human health consequences.
