Im concerned with trying to force certain foods and hit levels of certain vitamins thru diet.
I dont want to take any supplements.
However, I've begun to wonder, how the studies were performed that determined how much of X and Y we need.
Were they done in a similar manner to the Fat Mistake?
Did they take into account whole food or extracted quantities?
Do they account the absorption rate, both of those little pills and food intake?
Do they account for Synergy?
Are the numbers skewed by imbalances caused by Standard American Diet.
Are they trying to overcome issues related to Poor Diet?
Are they trying to overcome issues related to Diseases caused by Poor Diet?
Is poor diet stealing away from certain minerals/vitamins that the body would need much less of?
In short, How accurate are the RDA's?
Are they as bad off in some as they were in Vitamin D?
