About This Topic

The effect of starvation on bone mineral metabolism in the immediate, the early and the late post-recovery periods were tardy to emerge. Indeed, even tardier were the investigations on the descendants in their families. It is this aspect that prompted a review on many survivors from around the globe, this to present their findings and classify the disease. Nutrition as a cause of bone metabolic aberration was first raised from the British Southampton’s clinic, by C. Cooper, mainly on WWII survivors and their families, expanding on the earlier Barker - Lucas studies on pathologies emerging from early life starvation.

The studies on bone pathology of Holocaust survivors and descendant families included cases from Australia, Northern and Southern Americas, Europe, and Israel. Indeed, the results were common to all the dispersed persons, suggesting the effect of the Starvation being persistent despite re-nutrition of survivors and despite normal nutrition within the following generations
