My mother told me that the white spots under my nails are due to low zinc. Is this true and how do I increase my intake of zinc?

Your mother is correct in that the white spots under your nails are due to a zinc deficiency. This blog post lists many foods that are high in zinc (http://www.wellsphere.com/cystic-fibrosis-article/understanding-zinc/213867). Try to increase your consumption of zinc!
