"In the second part trace mineral nutrition in healthy people is covered, followed by coverage of the trace element nutrition in diseases. This is a unique approach to outline the role of trace element in health and disease conditions. In the body, trace elements do not work alone, but in concert with other nutrients. Contributors discuss trace element nutrition within the content of a specific condition or group of diseases rather than taking the classical approach, which is a discussion of trace element nutrition along the line of individual trace element. The editors provide a comprehensive overview of trace element nutrition in health and disease, and this renders this book a good reference for healthcare professionals."-Doody's Health Science Book Review Journal
