Book Description :

Trace Elements in Human Health and Disease, Volume II: Essential and Toxic Elements is a collection of papers presented at an international symposium on trace elements held in Detroit, Michigan on July 10-12, 1974. The symposium provided a forum for discussing the role of essential and toxic elements such as magnesium and chromium in human health and disease. Comprised of 21 chapters, this volume begins with an overview of magnesium deficiency and magnesium toxicity in humans, followed by an analysis of magnesium deficiency and its relation to calcium, parathyroid hormone, and bone metabolism. The reader is then introduced to the biochemistry and physiology of magnesium, along with chromium metabolism and its biochemical effects on humans. Subsequent chapters deal with the metabolism and biochemistry of selenium and sulfur; the health and disease implications of selenium and glutathione peroxidase; effect of pre-eruptive or post-eruptive fluoride administration on caries susceptibility in the rat; and perinatal effects of trace element deficiencies. The book also considers the basis of recommended dietary allowances for trace elements before concluding with a description of quantitative measures of the toxicity of mercury in humans. This book will be useful to physicians, researchers, nutritionists, and toxicologists.

Book Description :

Trace elements are involved in almost every biochemical process in body cells, and inadequacy or unbalance of trace element supply consequently affects a number of physiological functions. Recently developed and improved analytical techniques have strongly contributed to an increased understanding of the role of trace elements for health and disease. This publication gives an excellent overview of the present knowledge concerning their significance in a number of conditions. The specific problems in evaluating trace element intakes and status are highlighted. An adequate nutrient supply is particularly important in periods of growth, especially for infants, children and pregnant women. Improvement of trace element status through food fortification or supplementation is another central theme of this volume. Moreover, the biochemical and epidemiological evidences that they play a role in the prevention of coronary heart disease, cancer and osteoporosis are discussed. To keep track of the exciting developments in the field of trace elements, this publication is important for nutritionists, dietitians, pediatricians, general practitioners, public health professionals and food technologists alike.

Book Description :

Organized by the French Speaking Society for Study and Research on Essential Trace Elements (SFERETE), the Fifth International Congress on Trace Elements in Medicine and Biology "Therapeutic Uses of Trace Elements" was held February 4-7. 1996, in Meribel (Savoy, France). This resort is situated in the heart of the Three Valleys domain, at the gate way of the beautiful Vanoise National Park. More than 250 participants covering six conti nents attended the meeting. This volume contains the text of plenary lectures and of several oral and poster communications. Trace element deficiencies are not only encountered in developing countries or during malnutrition. Subclinical features are also observed in developed societies where they consti tute a background for an impressive number of pathological states. Preventive and curative treatments with commercial products are often prescribed without reliable studies about their clinical interest or potential efficiency. By contrast empirical approaches such as the catalytic therapy, nutritional and pharmacological aspects of trace elements were emphasized on a sci entific basis to favor their rational therapeutic use.

Book Description :

Soil science is perhaps one of the oldest practical sciences, having been of concern to man probably from the time he progressed from a strictly preda tory life to one in which agriculture became important. In view of the anti quity of concern with the subject, it is perhaps surprising that it can be approached from a fresh viewpoint, as is done in this book. Because soil science is an applied science, it is not surprising that the approach is usually descriptive, rather than imaginative. For agriculturalists and other land users, perhaps the most important part of soil science is the description of soils and the capacities of such soils to maintain crops, and this is reflected by the fact that soil science is usually treated ima highly descriptive manner, with soil classification being one of the main efforts. The treatment of the subject from a geological point of view, with considerable emphasis on the evolution of soils and the reasons governing their composition and form, makes this a highly readable book. Books on soil science are timely, with present-day concern with such major problems as the pollution of our environment and the possibility of overreaching our capacity for producing food for an expanding population.

Book Description :

From the Preface The major change in the format of the fifth edition is the presentation of the book in two volumes, necessitated by the rapidly increasing knowledge of metabolism, interactions, and requirements of trace elements ... The guiding principle was to present the minimum of results that would serve as a logical foundation for the description of the present state of knowledge. Recent results of research were accommodated by devoting new chapters to the subjects "Methodology of Trace Element Research" and "Quality Assurance for Trace Element Analysis" and by expanding the discussion of lithium and aluminum in separate, new chapters. The first two subjects are of outstanding importance as determinants of future progress. The concern for the quality of analytical data motivated the authors of the individual chapters to review critically and, where necessary, revise analytical data presented in the previous editions. The rapid progress of trace analytical methodology since the mid-1970s has changed what had been accepted as normal for the concentrations of many trace elements in tissues and foods. The new data reflect the present state of the art in trace element analysis, but they may be subject to future revision.
