Abstract:
This article reviews recent research which shows that vanadium, nickel, silicon, fluorine, and tin are essential in animal nutrition. Since extrapolation of these data indicates that these elements may also be essential for man, the author states that inclusion of reasonable amounts of these trace elements in refined foods and food analogues may be desirable.
