I’m working on a nutrition question and need a reference to help me study.
The description is in the attached pic.
(if you need)Textbook Link:
What are the 6 classes of essential nutrients?
Is Alcohol a nutrient? Does Alcohol give you Calories?
What is your opinion of the role of the federal government in promoting health and preventing disease in Americans?
What are the dietary reference intakes (DRIs)? What are they for? There used to only be one
reference intake, the RDA, why are there so many now?
Define each of the following in everyday language:

B. Recommended Dietary Allowances (RDA)
————-( Why DO we use this one as the recommended amount people should eat daily?)
C. Adequate Intakes (AI)
D. Tolerable Upper Intake Levels (UL)
