Product Description

Rising awareness of the impact of nutrition on chronic disease has dictated an expanded review of uses and misuses of RDAs in the United States and Recommended Nutrient Intakes in Canada.  Dietary Reference Intakes (DRIs) is the new framework developed by U.S. and Canadian scientists, which greatly extends the scope and applications of previous nutrient guidelines. For each nutrient evaluated, the book presents what is known about how the nutrient functions in the human body, what the best method is to determine its requirement, which factors (exercise, for example) may affect how it works, and how the nutrient may be related to chronic disease or developmental abnormalities.

Based on analysis of nutrient metabolism in humans and data on intakes in U.S. and Canadian populations, recommended intakes for each age group---from the first days of life through childhood, sexual maturity, midlife, and the later years---are proposed.  The book also identifies a new reference intake, the UL (Tolerable Upper Intake Level), which, if consumed consistently, may result in adverse effects.  Dietary Reference Intakes represents a new paradigm for the nutrition community.
