Excerpt
PREFACE This document is based on the reports of three meetings of investigators on Trace Elements in Relation to Cardiovascular Diseases, which were held jointly by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) and the World Health Organization (WHO) in Geneva, 8-13 February 1971, in Vienna, 19-23 February 1973 and in Geneva, 2-6 April 1973. The IAEA and WHO have been cooperating in this field since 1969 and have established a network of collaborating laboratories in several countries for the collection of biological specimens and for trace element analysis. The present report contains a description of the scope and progress of the investigations, a summary of the results so far obtained, and recommendations for the future conduct of the programme.
