[EQ] Nutrition Report on Biochemical Indicators of Diet and Nutrition in the U.S. Population

Nutrition Report on Biochemical Indicators of Diet and Nutrition in the U.S. Population

April 2nd 2012 -  Centers for Disease Control and Prevention - CDC

Available online at:

The report is part of a series of CDC publications that provide an ongoing assessment of the U.S. population’s nutrition status.
CDC’s Second Nutrition Report covers 58 biochemical indicators – measurements of specific substances in people’s blood and urine – and shows us what the actual levels of nutrition indicators are in the general population as well as in select groups such as children, women of childbearing age and minorities. 


The biochemical indicators studied include indicators such as vitamins A, D, and folate, trace elements such as iron and iodine, and nutrients such as saturated and polyunsaturated fatty acids.

The Report provides:


- Rates of nutrient deficiencies

- Reference information for scientists and physicians to detect high or low nutrient levels in people

- A look at nutrient levels over time to detect trends of health significance

- An evaluation of the effectiveness of interventions to improve the nutrition  status of the population
- The nutrition  status of specific populations for nutrient deficiencies..”
