The estimated daily intake
by preschool children in the Municipality of Imbe, for the analyzed polychlorinated biphenyls, was lower than the tolerable daily intake as adopted in countries such as Belgium and Norway.
Table III.- Average metals concentrations (Cm, mg/kg fresh weight basis in liver, meat, liver, gizzard, heart, cartilages and skin samples), estimated daily intake
(EDI, mg/kg/day) and health risk assessment data (HQ and HI) evaluated for heavy metal exposure to adults and children from Baladi chicken consumption in Jazan region.
Estimated daily intake
(EDI): EDI (ug/kg/day) for heavy metals was obtained using the following equation described by the Human Health Evaluation Manual (US Environmental Protection Agency, EPA) (2010):

(EDI) values of metals from commercial infant formulas and the health risk index (HI).
Determination of the Estimated Daily Intake
for the Ugandan Population.
The averages of the estimated daily intake
(EDI) of NI and NA are shown in Table 4.
An important aspect of assessing risk to human health from potentially toxic metals is the knowledge of the dietary intake of the metals (DIM), which must remain within the established safety margin as in the Provisional Tolerable Daily Intake (PTDI) by FAO/WHO, 2001 [5, 10], the Global Estimated Daily Intake
(GEDI)  and the Recommended Dietary Allowances (RDA) by the Food and Nutrition Board, 2004  in Table 3.The dietary intake of zinc, lead and chromium in farm and market fruit was found to be lower than the PTDI values; zinc, nickel, lead and chromium lower than RDA values; and nickel, lead and chromium lower than those reported in Libya .
RESULTS: The fasting baseline plasma ORAC of these subjects was significantly correlated with their estimated daily intake
of total antioxidants from fruit and vegetables during the previous year.
Dr Mark Ridgewell said: "Her estimated daily intake
is 1,200 kcal and her estimated daily exercise is 210 kcal.
A baby's estimated daily intake
of SEM, based on the concentrations found in the infant food, was at least 40,000 times less than the dose given to the mice.
A recen t study of 2,956 men and 1,182 women residing in the non-coastal city of Sapporo, Japan, (8) revealed a urine concentration of I in spot urine samples, with a mean value of 3.4 mg/L, corresponding to an estimated daily intake
averaging 5.3 mg.
The estimated daily intake
of PBDEs by people from air and food is far below amounts now known to be toxic to animals.
