Product Description

Good health begins with good nutrition, and good nutrition starts with a balanced diet that provides necessary levels of essentials nutrients and adequate energy. Since 1977 the Institute of Medicine has issued eight exhaustive volumes of Dietary Reference Intakes (DRIs) that offer quantitative estimates of nutrient intakes to be used in planning and assessing diets for healthy individuals in the United States and Canada. Now all eight volumes are summarized in this one easy-to-use reference volume.

Along with dietary reference intakes of nutrients, this book presents recommendations for health maintenance and the reduction of chronic disease risk. Also included are summary tables of the DRIs, a complete practical summary of the recommendations.

Contents:  Development & application, Energy, macronutrients, water & physical activity, Vitamins & minerals, 9 appendices, summary tables. 

JJ Otten, JP Hellwig & LD Meyers, 2006, 341 p, illustrated with charts & tables.  (List: $49.95)  $47.50
