Product Description

The Dietary Reference Intakes (DRIs) are quantitative estimates of nutrient intakes to be used for planning and assessing diets for healthy people.  This volume, the sixth in a series of reports presenting dietary reference values for the intakes of nutrients by Americans and Canadians, establishes nutrient recommendations for health maintenance and the reduction of chronic disease risk.

Dietary Reference Intakes for Water, Potassium, Sodium, Chloride, and Sulfate discusses the role of water, potassium, sodium, chloride, and sulfate in human physiology and health. The major findings in this book include the establishment of Adequate Intakes for total water (drinking water, beverages and food), potassium, sodium and chloride, and the establishment of Tolerable Upper Intake levels for sodium and chloride. This book makes research recommendations for information needed to advance the understanding of human requirements for water and electrolytes, as well as adverse effects associated with the intake of excessive amounts of water, sodium, chloride, potassium and sulfate.
