A Letter from a Student:
Class 3 – Nutrition and Health – Fall 2021 – September 9th – McGuire Chapter 2 – Nutrient Balance Studies and the DRIs
In today’s Nutrition & Health class (9-9-21) we discuss the 1st Foundation of Nutrition: Nutrient Balance Studies – Example: Vitamin C; McGuire Chapter 2 Slides – Dietary Reference Intakes (DRI) – Where do they come from? How are ULs determined? – usually from some mistake!
Dietary Reference Intakes (DRIs) are the not the most exciting aspect of Nutrition, but in way they are a continuation of the discovery of the vitamins and nutrients. They represent over 100 years of work in laboratories throughout the world.

Question from a Student:
Dear Professor, How does a student do well in your class?
ANSWER: Hi __________,
Thank you so much for your email. To do well in the class you need to do what you do for almost all of your classes: attend lectures (either live or the video), read the textbook and other readings, and study when exams come along. Also, do well on the written assignments – show that you thought about them.
Concerning help, you can always email the TA or me with a question. If the question is very interesting – I will post it on the blog for the course, so that all students will benefit from your question.
I hope you have a very productive and healthy semester!
