       growth, reproduction, cell division, and cell 
       differentiation. With the focus on Vitamin A and 
       Carotenoids, this book includes the latest research in 
       these areas and starts with an overview putting the 
       compounds in context with other vitamins, supplementation 
       and discussing the importance of beta-carotene. Details of
       the chemistry, structure and biochemistry of the compounds
       begins with nomenclature followed by information on 
       encapsulation, thermal degradation and occurrence. 
       Developments in analytical and bioanalytical techniques 
       concerning these compounds in plant, milk and human tissue
       systems are covered in detail. Finally, the book covers 
       the extensive functions and effects of Vitamin A on eg 
       developmental growth, immune function, cancer risk, the 
       brain and lungs as well as vision. Delivering high quality
       information, this book will be of benefit to anyone 
       researching this area of health and nutritional science. 
       It will bridge scientific disciplines so that the 
       information is more meaningful and applicable to health in
       general. Part of a series of books, it is specifically 
       designed for chemists, analytical scientists, forensic 
       scientists, food scientists, dieticians and health care 
       workers, nutritionists, toxicologists and research 
       academics. Due to its interdisciplinary nature it could 
       also be suitable for lecturers and teachers in food and 
       nutritional sciences and as a college or university 
       library reference guide."--|cProvided by publisher.
