CRN suggests nutrient "safety approach" based on "no adverse effect level" values.

This article was originally published in The Tan Sheet

Executive Summary

VITAMIN E "NO OBSERVED ADVERSE EFFECT LEVEL" OF 80 TIMES RDA PROPOSED BY CRN in a July 8 report entitled "Vitamin and Mineral Safety." The Council for Responsible Nutrition asserts in the report its long-held contention that the Recommended Dietary Allowances set forth by the Food & Nutrition Board of the National Academy of Sciences are "not a valid basis for identifying safe upper intakes of vitamins and minerals." The report provides alternative methods for identifying safe upper nutrient intakes based on the use of "No Observed Adverse Effect Level" (NOAEL) and "Lowest Observed Adverse Effect Level" (LOAEL) values for 25 specific nutrients
