Examine the label of a jar of multivitamins—either one that you currently take or one that is sold in a store. Using Tables 8.2 and 8.3 in Ch. 8 (pp. 239–240, 262), and Tables 9.1 and 9.6 in Ch. 9 (pp. 288, 307–308), determine if the multivitamin would meet the recommended daily intake for adults for vitamins and minerals.

· Relate the vitamin and mineral amounts in the multivitamin to your diet.

· Address the following questions:

o What are some of the benefits you stand to receive by taking it every day?

o Does taking a multivitamin every day raise your intake of a particular vitamin or mineral to near-toxic levels?

o What are the consequences of toxicity?

· Post a 200- to 300-word response discussing your findings

  2. I am very active running a child care center, and possibly skip some crucial meals. I depend on my multivitamin to provide my daily needs, but also drink plenty of fruit juices. It appears the mineral part is lacking.
