About this book
Nutritional Influences on Bone Health presents a collection of papers from
the 7th International Symposium on Nutritional Aspects of Osteoporosis, the
primary forum for scientists in the field of nutrition and bone health. Key
themes from this symposium included the permeation of the Western diet across
the globe, calcium, vitamin D and acid-base balance.Written by authorities on
the impact of nutrition on bone health, this volume brings the reader the emerging
trends, new messages and the latest scientific data in the field, to inform
future research and clinical practice.Peter Burckhardt, MD is a Professor of
Medicine at the Clinique Bois-Cerf of the Hirslanden Hospital in Lausanne, Switzerland.
In addition to his activities as a clinician and academic teacher, Professor
Burckhardt has authored more than 300 scientific publications and has been a
