Example text

The A1 content of bone went up to a certain level and then levelled off; then soft tissue levels of A1 increased. We measured hydroxyproline excretion as an index of bone turnover. We hypothesized that if bone turnover was increased, more Al would be released and hence would move into other tissues. There are several questions. When A1 leaves bone, is it bound to transferrin or to some other protein? Does this affect where it goes? Moreover, would enough A1 be released from bone during turnover to be practically significant?

017 mg/l). 04mg aluminium from water. Food additives as a source of aluminium Food additives are a major source of dietary aluminium in the United States, although aluminium-containing additives are present in only a limited number of foods (Greger 1985, Pennington 1987). Variability in the usage of these foods make it very difficult to estimate aluminium intake from these sources. In 1982 approximately four million pounds weight of aluminium was used in food additives in the United States (Committee on Food Additives Survey Data 1984).
