Lincocin (Lincomycin)

The Food and Nutrition Board of the National Research Council is the recognized authority for setting standards of nutrition in the United States. This board has set up a table of Recommended Daily Dietary Allowances, which is revised about every five years to include new research as it becomes available.
If you examine this table carefully, you will find recommendations listed for infants, preschool and school children, older boys and girls, men and women of varying ages, and for pregnancy and lactation. Thus the table is intended to be used as a guide for the entire healthy population.
For each age an individual of given size has been used as a standard. For example, the “reference woman” is 163 cm (64 in.) tall and weighs 55 kg (120 lb) and is assumed to be normally active and to live in a temperate climate. Using this guide, one can estimate what allowances might be suitable for a woman who is larger or smaller, who is younger or older, who lives in a warmer or colder climate, or who is more or less active.
For each age category specific allowances are listed for protein, minerals, and vitamins. The body requires other nutrients that arc not listed, but the average well-planned diet will furnish sufficient amounts of these.
The correct interpretation of this table is important. Each person differs from all other individuals in his exact nutritional requirements. There is no practical way to determine which persons use nutrients more or less efficiently than the average. To ensure that these differences are taken into account, the recommended allowances provide a “margin of safety.”
An individual who fails to get the full allowances in his diet is not necessarily poorly nourished, since he may be one of those persons whose needs are lower. Nutritional status can be determined only by a thorough physical examination, laboratory tests, and a dietary history. Your goal in dietary planning for yourself and others should be toward obtaining the full allowances each day. If you were catching a plane at a particular time, you would surely allow a little extra time to get to the airport in the event of a traffic tie-up. Why not allow yourself the margin of safety in your nutrition by meeting fully the recommended allowances each day?
