User: 16. How does today’s society affect our nutritional habits?

User: 15. Consider your personal dietary habits. What are some modifications you might make to promote good health?

Weegy: Coronary Heart Disease. Experts believe that extreme fluctuations in body weight may increase the risk for coronary heart disease. These weight changes don't have to be the result of chronic yo-yo dieting to be dangerous. [ A serious illness, personal crisis or other traumatic event that triggers sudden weight loss followed by rapid weight gain can have the same detrimental effects. That is what Kelly Brownell, Ph.D., of the University of Pennsylvania, found from analyzing several large population studies of the incidence of heart disease. "There is enough evidence to be concerned and to require more research on the issue," Dr. Brownell said. ]

Why is physical activity important as it relates to nutrition and health? User: Where might you find dietary recommendations? What are the recommended dietary allowances (RDA)? What are dietary reference intakes (DRIs)?
Weegy: The Dietary Reference Intake (DRI) is a system of nutrition recommendations from the Institute of Medicine (IOM) of the U.S. National Academy of Sciences. [ The DRI system is used by both the United States and Canada and is intended for the general public and health professionals. Applications include: Composition of diets for schools, prisons, hospitals or nursing homes, Industries developing new food stuffs, Healthcare policy makers and public health officials. The Recommended Dietary Allowance (RDA) was developed during World War II by Lydia J. Roberts, Hazel Stiebeling and Helen S. Mitchell, all part of a committee established by the United States National Academy of Sciences in order to investigate issues of nutrition that might "affect national defense" (Nestle, 35).[1] The committee was renamed the Food and Nutrition Board in 1941, after which they began to deliberate on a set of recommendations of a standard daily allowance for each type of nutrient. The standards would be used for nutrition recommendations for the armed forces, for civilians, and for overseas population who might need food relief. Roberts, Stiebeling, and Mitchell surveyed all available data, created a tentative set of allowances for "energy and eight nutrients", and submitted them to experts for review (Nestle, 35). The final set of guidelines, called RDAs for Recommended Dietary Allowances, were accepted in 1941. The allowances were meant to provide superior nutrition for civilians and military personnel, so they included a "margin of safety." Because of food rationing during the war, the food guides created by government agencies to direct citizens' nutritional intake also took food availability into account. ] User: 8.
