The task for the Committee on Use of Dietary Reference Intakes
in Nutrition Labeling, which I was privileged to chair, was to provide
guidance to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’
Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s
Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS), and Health
Canada on how to use the Dietary Reference Intakes (DRIs) to
update the nutrient reference values used in nutrition labeling.
Combativeness, to use the language of phrenology, is one of the most lively instincts of humanity. The Bible tells us of the struggle between the sons of Adam, and shows us might making right ever since the days of primeval man. History is but one long account of wars and conquests, victories or defeats, and progress is chiefly marked in inventions which made battles more sanguinary and added to the number of victims slaughtered. At the very dawn of humanity man learned to make weapons; very soon, however, weapons ceased to appear sufficient. The first fortification was doubtless the...

Migraine, the second most common cause of headache, afflicts approximately 15% of women and 6% of men. It is usually an episodic headache that is associated with certain features such as sensitivity to light, sound, or movement; nausea and vomiting often accompany the headache.
A useful description of migraine is a benign and recurring syndrome of headache associated with other symptoms of neurologic dysfunction in varying admixtures (Table 15-3). Migraine can often be recognized by its activators, referred to as triggers.
Nutritional Dietary folate deficiency is common. Indeed, in most patients with folate deficiency a nutritional element is present. Certain individuals are particularly prone to have diets containing inadequate amounts of folate (Table 100-5). In the United States and other countries where fortification of the diet with folic acid has been adopted, the prevalence of folate deficiency has dropped dramatically and is now almost restricted to high-risk groups with increased folate needs.
For half a billion women in developing
regions worldwide, anemia is a life-long burden,
one which affects most of their infants
and young children as well. Controlling anemia
in these vulnerable groups could significantly
reduce maternal and infant morbidity.
It would also enhance intellectual and work
capacity, thereby improving family, community
and national socioeconomic development.
In May 2002, the General Assembly of
the United Nations reemphasized that control
of nutritional anemia should be one of the
global Development Goals to be achieved in
the early years of this new millennium.
A basic premise of the Dietary Guidelines is that food
guidance should recommend diets that will provide all
the nutrients needed for growth and health. To this end,
food guidance should encourage individuals to achieve
the most recent nutrient intake recommendations of the
Institute of Medicine, referred to collectively as the Dietary
Reference Intakes (DRIs). Tables of the DRIs are provided
