  • Vlog 14: Sand and Water - Wind, Noisy! (5K Walk)

    A walk on the beach on a very windy day in search of some solitude. Sorry for so much noise - I tried to cover the microphone on my phone, but it did not help a bit.

  • Vlog 11: Night and Morning in Missourri

    Random visuals from my days: traveling USA, Kansas City, Missouri, soap and shampoo not tested on animals.

    This week I traveled to Kansas and Missouri, these are a few visuals from my time in the airport and on the airplane on the way there.

  • In a Shopping Mall - Wool? Leather? Down?

    Searching for and buying male pants in a local shopping mall in California, looking for options for vegan belts, shoes, and clothing. It took us 4 hours to find a model of cotton khakis that matches two people (they needed the same look).

    Down is harvested as a byproduct of the meat

Recommended Dietary Allowance RDA

Recommended Dietary Allowance (RDA) - the average daily dietary nutrient intake level sufficient to meet the nutrient requirement of nearly all - ~97% - healthy individuals in a particular life stage and gender group. 

The process for setting the RDA depends on being able to set an Estimated Average Requirement (EAR). If an EAR cannot be set, no RDA will be set. The EAR is the daily intake value of a nutrient that is estimated to meet the nutrient requirement of half the healthy individuals in a life stage and gender group.

The RDA is set at the EAR plus twice the standard deviation (SD) if known (RDA = EAR + 2 SD). If data about variability in requirements are insufficient to calculate a standard deviation, a coefficient of variation for the EAR of 10% is ordinarily assumed (RDA = 1.2 x EAR).

The RDA for a nutrient is a value to be used as a goal for dietary intake by healthy individuals. The RDA is not intended to be used to assess the diets of either individuals or groups or to plan diets for groups.
