Metabolism of minerals & trace elements in human disease
: £35 978-1-85463-004-9
The significance of this proceedings volume dating from 1989 lies in the attention given to the role of essential trace elements in subtropical and tropical developing countries. The host country (India) remains preoccupied with the need for good public health achievable through good diet and curbs on pollution.

Hurren £25 978-1-85463-068-1
At the end of the last century the UK diet, so much richer than in the post-war years, did not appear to offer the advantages for mortality and morbidity that had been achieved by austerity and rationing. The concept of the food network was adopted by the British Dietetic Association as a basis for partnership between consumers, retailers, caterers, educators, processors and producers in the search for a more nutritious eating pattern.
