Plenum Press, 1980 - Medical - 362 pages
Abstract: Current nutrition research is reviewed for scientists, graduate students, and practitioners in the biological and health sciences. Recent developments in requirements for and bioavailability of minerals are discussed, including: the establishment of requirements for additional trace elements; the epidemiology of trace element deficiencies; and the stable isotope method of assessing mineral bioavailability. Topics relating to lipid research include investigations of ischemic heart disease in Greenland Eskimos and its correlation to marine oils (and polyunsaturated fatty acids) in the diet; the cardiopathic effects of long-chain monoenoic fatty acids in heart muscle; and dietary influences on prostaglandin synthesis. Modern techniques used in formulating and administering total parenteral nutrition are described. The role of taurine in nutrition and in the development of human infants, and the mycology, chemistry, and toxicology of trichothecenes are analyzed. (cj).
