The Elements of Human Nutrition: Minerals

Minerals are more than squares on the periodic table; they're crucial to our health. Learn the names and functions of minerals, and which foods are the best sources to ensure proper nutrition.

Understand the differences between vitamins and minerals, and what defines a mineral as "major" or "trace."

Also, see how minerals behave in our bodies once we ingest them, as well as how they react with each other in many vital bodily functions.

- If minerals are good, why not take supplements?
- Which is best? More minerals or more balance?
- Is lead bad and iron good? Surprise, both are essential AND both are toxic.
- Why calcium really makes bones stronger?
- Why the view that some chemicals are "bad" is simplistic.
- Why taking extra amounts of one mineral can "bump out" supplies of one another.
