The Development of Guiding Principles for the Inclusion of Chronic Disease Endpoints in Future Dietary Reference Intakes

Type: Consensus Study
Topics: Diseases, Food and Nutrition, Public Health
Board: Food and Nutrition Board

Activity Description

An ad hoc committee of the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine (National Academies) will undertake a study to assess options presented in the document Options for Consideration of Chronic Disease Endpoints for Dietary Reference Intakes (DRIs): Summary Report from a Joint US/Canadian-sponsored Expert Panel (hereafter Options Report) and determine guiding principles for the inclusion of chronic disease endpoints for food substances that will be used by future National Academies committees in establishing Dietary Reference Intakes (DRIs). The committee shall provide justification for the selection (and non-selection) of options that served as the basis for the guiding principles, including additions not considered in the Options Report.
