Introducion style[edit]

Is it within Wikipedia's style to include instructional commands within the text? In this particular instance, I am referring to the last line of the second paragraph, which states "(see below for detailed discussion)". Isn't that the function of the table of contents? Its inclusion seems redundant. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 23.120.120.249 (talk) 22:51, 30 May 2015 (UTC)

It's completely unnecessary, so I have simply removed it. Deli nk (talk) 22:53, 30 May 2015 (UTC)

Slacked lime a good source of Calcium for every day use ?[edit]

RDA[edit]

I moved the minerals around a bit. Iodine has an RDA of 150 mg/day. All the other trace elements are 1-20 mg/day (including iron at 10mg/day. Magnesium really is bulk with an RDA of 400 mg per day or so. Kd4ttc

Arsenic is good for you[edit]

OK, but still say why arsenic is good for you. Emphasize small amounts for those, as the reader might not be college educated, etc.

Food Sources section[edit]

The paragraph at the bottom of the food sources section is too general and non-specific. The comment about "university reseach" is laughable without proper references.

Chlorine?[edit]

What about chlorine, for stomach acid, and cation stability? Jack · talk · 14:40, Tuesday, 27 February 2007

I just did a MAJOR edit on this page as I am HIGHLY knowledgeable on minerals and health[edit]

My edits are not perfect though. The reference for indium is messed up too.
