Quotes and reviews

"...covers important aspects of nutrition and bone health...Students of nutrition and osteoporosis will find this book critical to their study."
- American Journal of Clinical Nutrition (April 2005)

"This book provides a general overview of the current understanding of various nutritional and hormonal elements related to the etiology and treatment of osteoporosis. The focus on clinical research makes it a useful tool for researchers in the basic sciences for understanding the current status of clinical studies, as well as a useful tool for clinical researchers for general information about areas of research outside their own."
-Katie Beth Williams, BS, PhD in progress(University of Wisconsin-Madison)for DOODYS
