    Food production is another important component of nutrition and health. This is a complex issue with lots of factors, some of which you cannot control. For example, food grown in healthy soil will supply necessary trace minerals to the food, but when soils are pressured for large-scale production, essential trace minerals can be lost. Microhistological analysis has become widely used for food habit studies in-volving wild and domestic ungulates since described by Baumgartner and Martin (). The technique was later verified by Sparks and Malechek (), Holechek and Gross (), and others. Techniques of sample preparation for microhistological analysis have been de-.
