Vitamin A intakes and dietsAccording to the 2005 Dietary Guidelines for Americans, "Nutrient needs should be met primarily through consuming foods. Foods provide an array of nutrients and other compounds that may have beneficial effects on health. In certain cases, fortified foods and dietary supplements may be useful sources of one or more nutrients that otherwise might be consumed in less than recommended amounts. However, dietary supplements, while recommended in some cases, cannot replace a healthful diet." For more information about building a healthful diet, refer to the Dietary Guidelines for Americans (http://www.health.gov/dietaryguidelines/dga2005/document/pdf/DGA2005.pdf) and the U.S. Department of Agriculture's food guidance system (My Pyramid; http://www.mypyramid.gov).

I hope it will serve a positive function in opening alternative horizons in the area of general information about vitamins.
