For decades mineral nutrients have been known to be vital for human health, and their deficiency has been known to be a serious global public health concern. In recent years we have learnt much about the mechanistic roles that minerals play in cell biology, mineral-nutrient interactions, and mineral-gene interactions; and minerals have been shown to be important in an ever-increasing range of biological processes.
Parallel to this increased understanding of basic biological processes, there has been an explosion in ideas to tackle population-wide mineral deficiencies. Some of these ideas depend on cutting edge basic science (such as the generation of transgenic food sources and biofortification), others rely on changes in public policy, education and social marketing.
In this Special Issue we wish to address the entire range of advances in mineral research that will help to understand and mitigate the burden of mineral deficiencies in developed and developing world populations.
These may including the roles of
- bench research
- population-based surveys of mineral status
- assessment of mineral status in high-risk population
- nutritional interventions programs
- behavioral modifications and social marketing
