Format: Hardcover
What can I say...? It is an essential book for ANYONE working in the field of human nutrition and dietetics, either in clinics with individuals or in the community with programs for groups or in academia.
This books summarizes all the nutrient recommendations for all age groups and the basis for the recommendations.

Dietary Reference Intakes DRI Reviewed March 31 2009
By Gregory Muncer - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Hi Folks, I orignally became familiar with The National Academy of Sciences when they publish the predecesor of The Dietary Refence Intakes book and as it was called then The Recommended Dietary Allowances RDAs. The newer version is a complete Text Book of The Nutrition Subject as we know it today, from the source that establishes the subject standard.
Sometimes you have to go to the horse to understand their thinking.
I have not finished reading the book yet as to its fullness.
This Amazon distributed book came fast and clean.
I am a happy camper with a book on super health.
Thank You Amazon and The National Academy of Sciences
