Although the importance of magnesium for bone health is known, little is known about magnesium absorption and its relationship to bone mineral content and density ­ both factors that relate to bone strength. In a new study, researchers at the USDA/ARS Children’s Nutrition Research Center at Baylor College of Medicine and Texas Children’s Hospital found that the magnesium content of a diet is significantly related to these two factors. Their...

LONDON, July 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Automotive lightweighting and China growth driving demand for magnesium Roskill estimates that consumption of magnesium reached a new peak in 2012, 1.1Mt, with demand having grown by 5.5%py over the last decade. The largest end-uses for magnesium are die-cast magnesium and aluminium alloys, each accounting for a third of total consumption. The transportation industry is the largest consumer of die-cast magnesium and the second...

New study shows that the amount of magnesium consumed and absorbed is the key predictor of children´s bone health; whereas dietary calcium intake was not significantly associated with total bone mineral content or density. Los Angeles, Ca (PRWEB) May 15, 2013 While it is known that magnesium is important for bone health in adults, few studies have analyzed magnesium´s crucial role in the bone density of young children. A new study presented on Sunday, May 5, at the Pediatric...

Despite advances in medicine resulting in a longer average life span, baby boomers are less healthy than their parents´ generation and face more health problems. Magnesium deficiency, lack of exercise and lack of nutrient-rich foods are three reasons for a 46 percent increase in type 2 diabetes, a 38 percent increase in high blood pressure and a 10 percent increase in obesity. Los Angeles, Ca (PRWEB) May 09, 2013 In a new study, recently published in the Journal of the American Medical...

Study shows magnesium intake, absorption significantly associated with bone density in children Parents are advised to make sure their children drink milk and eat other calcium-rich foods to build strong bones. Soon, they also may be urged to make sure their kids eat salmon, almonds and other foods high in magnesium – another nutrient that may play an important role in bone health, according to a study to be presented Sunday, May 5, at the Pediatric Academic Societies (PAS) annual...

Researchers from North Carolina State University have developed a new technique for creating stronger, lightweight magnesium alloys that have potential structural applications in the automobile and aerospace industries. Engineers constantly seek strong, lightweight materials for use in cars and planes to improve fuel efficiency. Their goal is to develop structural materials with a high “specific strength,” which is defined as a material´s strength divided by its density....

W. M. Keck Observatory With data collected from the mighty W. M. Keck Observatory, California Institute of Technology (Caltech) astronomer Mike Brown – known as the Pluto killer for discovering a Kuiper-belt object that led to the demotion of Pluto from planetary status – and Kevin Hand from the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) have found the strongest evidence yet that salty water from the vast liquid ocean beneath Europa´s frozen exterior actually makes its way to the...

Aluminum (or aluminium) is a soft, lightweight, silvery metal. It is an element in the boron group on the periodic table of elements, with the symbol Al and atomic number 13. On the earth's crust, aluminum is the most abundant metal, and the third most abundant of all elements on the earth's crust, after oxygen and silicon. It accounts for 8% of the weight of the Earth's solid surface. Because aluminum is a highly reactive metal, it doesn't occur in nature in a pure form. Aluminum forms a...

Dolomite is a mineral (formula CaMg(CO3)2) consisting of a calcium magnesium carbonate found in crystals and in beds as dolostone. A pure form of dolostone would be rare, however; it usually intergrades with limestone and is referred to as dolomitic limestone, or in old U. S. geologic literature as magnesian limestone. Dolomite has physical properties similar to those of the mineral calcite, but is less soluble in hydrochloric acid. There is uncertainty as to the cause of its formation,...

Magnesium is the chemical element in the periodic table that has the symbol Mg and atomic number 12. Magnesium is the eighth most abundant element and constitutes about 2% of the Earth's crust, and it is the third most plentiful element dissolved in seawater. This alkaline earth metal is primarily used as an alloying agent to make aluminium-magnesium alloys. Notable characteristics Magnesium is a fairly strong, silvery-white, light-weight metal (one third lighter than aluminium) that...

Talc is a mineral composed of hydrated magnesium silicate with the chemical formula H2Mg3(SiO3)4 or Mg3Si4O10(OH)2. It occurs as foliated to fibrous masses, its monoclinic crystals being so rare as to be almost unknown. It has a perfect basal cleavage, the folia non-elastic although slightly flexible. It is sectile and very soft, with a hardness of 1 (Talc is the softest known solid). It has a specific gravity of 2.5 - 2.8, a waxlike or pearly luster, and is translucent to opaque. Its color...
