ABSTRACT
The aim of the paper was to assess the intakes of vitamins and minerals in participants of the programme “Prevention in cardiovascular diseases in a selected population from Wrocław”. To evaluate dietary intake use was made of the 24–hour dietary recall and history of nutrition. The intake of calcium (62% of the safe level of intake) was too low (because of inadequate consumption of milk and dietary products), whereas the intake of phosphorus exceeded Polish RDA nearly 2-fold. In this case, the values of the Ca/P ratio (1:2) were improperly high. The study showed an unsatisfactorily low intake of iron, copper, zinc, manganese, magnesium and vitamins B1, B2, and B6.
