  • Routs for Swimming in Pacific Ocean

    Wetsuit, for swimming

    I like to swim in open waters. In Europe I did it mostly in seas or lakes, and here in California I risk to go into the Ocean. 

    My 10-years older cousin and his friend had thrown me into deeper waters in a warm see the Summer I just turned 5, I made it back and loved swimming ever

    Swimming in the Pacific Ocean 3.5K

    This is my 3rd consecutive day swimming in the ocean,

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.
