A variety of food from each of the different food groups should be consumed to ensure adequate nutrient intake, although scientific knowledge regarding individual nutrients is incomplete, despite the Recomended Dietary Allowances (RDAs). Nutritional deficiencies manifested in infants and patients fed solely one food source confirms this. Opposite, but comparable to nutrient deficiencies, are nutritional excesses, which can create an imbalance among nutrient interactions. One way to ensure nutritional adequacy is to better understand food as sources of nutrients, but also as potential carriers of unknown substances. The choices of foods taken to complement the RDA is as important as the implementation itself. (kbc)
