In the prevention of osteoporosis, which is recognized as a major public health problem, nutrition may appear as an alternative strategy for optimizing skeletal health. The importance of adequate calcium and vitamin D intakes for bone health is now well documented. Dairy products may be seen as just providing calcium, other minerals and proteins, but may contain some bioactive fractions that are bone active with benefit beyond calcium and minerals. We invite investigators to contribute original research articles that will provide new insights into the physiological response to nutritional interventions or dietary patterns at any life stage. In addition, research that aims to clarify the molecular mechanisms of action by specific nutrients on the musculoskeletal system and respective cells are desirable. We will assume that intervention studies presented will have been designed to provide sufficient dietary calcium. Studies documenting interactions among nutrients are also welcome. Research presented may cover nutrition in childhood and adolescence, in adults, as well as in the elderly, with the intention to prevent or treat osteoporosis. Clinical trials must have been registered with a known database.
