U.S. General Accounting Office, 1978 - Health & Fitness - 66 pages
Extract: Recommended dietary allowances are guidelines for nutrient intakes to ensure a healthy population. The allowances are adequate for their intended purpose of serving as guidelines for use by nutrition professionals. However, they do not address some current concerns on diet and health. More research and a better translation of the allowances into food guides for the consumer is needed.
