The seventh symposium on “Nutritional Aspects of Osteoporosis” continues to be the primary forum for scientists to focus on the impact of nutrition on bone health in general. Since 1991, the year of the frst symposium, research in this feld has increased impressively and has become an established part of research and science in osteology. This symposium in particular featured many global comparisons in diet and the effect on bone. As Western diet permeates more of the globe and the popu- tion continues to grow, it is meaningful to study the impact of these changes on bone health as diet is one of the few major modifable factors which in turn affects health care costs. Calcium, vitamin D, and acid-base balance continued to dominate the discussion. The symposium offered an opportunity to learn about theories and data in nutritional research concerning bone as well as methodological approaches to cl- sify diets. The proceedings allow the reader to capture the new messages, to analyze the new scientifc data presented, and to use the book as a source of references in this feld. Peter Burckhardt Bess Dawson-Hughes Connie Weaver v Acknowledgments th This work comprises papers from the 7 International Symposium on Nutritional Aspects of Osteoporosis in 2009 in Lausanne, Switzerland.

As an endocrinologist dealing with diabetes, obesity and bone diseases, I naturally developed an interest in the association between nutrition and bone health, which in the seventies and eighties was restricted to the role of calcium. I always felt that there was a gap with no regular international meeting dedicated to this topic, next to the much bigger research fields of bone cell biology, vitamin D or epidemiology, treatment of osteoporosis etc. When in 1990, I was asked by the Serono Foundation to organize an international endocrinology symposium, I seized the occasion and presented the idea of a bone nutrition meeting to Robert Heaney. He certainly was the figurehead needed for such a launch. He agreed to give it a try, and we organized the first meeting in 1991. Calcium was obviously the main topic, but not the only one. 
Three years later, the meeting was held again with a wider spectrum of topics. Vitamin D captured great attention, and other topics appropriate at that time, such as the role of other vitamins, proteins, various lifestyle factors and nutritional inadequacies in the elderly. From there on, we organized it every three years in Lausanne, Switzerland. In 1997, Bess Dawson-Hughes joined us as co-organizer. With her impressive knowledge and network she helped to enlarge again the spectrum to nutritional aspects of growth, genetic influences, the effect of isoflavones, etc.
