A Journal Analysis of Health and Nutrition
Journal I: Factors Affecting Nutrient Intake of the Elderly
Dietary studies often allow us to determine an adequate, healthy diet which fulfills the Recommended Dietary Allowances (RDA). They allow us to realize crucial factors which play important roles in our daily intake of nutrients. However, the daily intake of various nutrients varies according to age, especially among the elderly.
The number of Americans age 60, and over has increased from about 5 million in 1900, to about 42 million in 1990. Today, the elderly make up roughly 18% of the world population. They also account for 30 percent of all health care expenditures in the United States. Unfortunately, poor nutrition is the primary reason for the high percentage of health concern among the elderly.
