Zinc in Human Biology (ILSI Human Nutrition Reviews)

      This textbook provides a thorough, up-to-date review of zinc as a nutrient, from its dietary availability, transport, and storage in the body to its role in physiologic processes, from the subcellular level to the organ system. Controversies in the evaluation and diagnosis of zinc deficiency and toxicity and the putative therapeutic roles of zinc are also discussed. The book will provide valuable information for those who are entering postgraduate training in nutrition and will also be of interest to clinicians who specialize in the nutritional care of patients and would like to update their understanding of zinc.
