    Article - En anglais

    The objective of this project was to assess the contributions made by diet and/or food supplements to the intake of vitamins and minerals.

    Results indicated that 30% of the respondents were meeting less than 37% of the 1989 Recommended Dietary Allowance (RDA) for calcium with diet alone or diet plus supplements.

    Of those who supplemented, 46 percent consumed (diet and supplements) vitamin C at levels greater than 150% of the 1989 RDA.

    Even when vitmain C intake was greater than the RDA of 60 mg, 40% took supplements averaging 689.2 mg/day.
